Rare two sheet vintage Bollywood poster of the popular Amitabh Bachchan film, Parvarish (1977) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood movie poster of the 1977 film starring the biggest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the 1980s), this movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the re-release of the film but never ended up being used.
This poster was originally designed in hand painted format using oil paints on canvas by a small time art studio, giving it a very quirky hand drawn appearance. This eccentric, old hand painted Bollywood poster captures the original angry young man of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, in a striking pose wearing a police uniform. A portrait of Vinod Khanna is seen in an action pose on the top. The film’s title, Parvarish, appears in yellow in stunning typography in this old Amitabh movie poster.
Two sheet posters comprise two separate individual single sheet posters measuring 40″x30″ inches each. When pasted together they line up perfectly and together form one single two sheet poster. In the image shown alongside, there may be a slight gap visible between the two – as the images of the top and bottom half have been photographed individually and then joined together digitally. When framed or pasted, there will be no gap visible between the two sheets and the appearance of the poster would be seamless – i.e. just like a single sheet poster.
