Pati Patni Aur Tawaif
Vintage Bollywood film poster for sale of the old Hindi movie, Pati Patni Aur Tawaif (1990).
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood film poster for sale of the 1990 Hindi film directed by Rajkumar Kohli, starring Mithun Chakraborty, Salma Agha, Farha Naaz and Om Prakash in pivotal roles. Pati Patni Aur Tawaif was based on Premchand’s novel Bazaar-e-Husn.
Printed and circulated during the initial run of the film (early 1990s), this rare hand painted Bollywood poster was designed and printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
Originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by an art studio in Kolkata, this vintage Bollywood film poster features quirky hand drawn renditions of the lead characters of the film. Mithun Chakraborty and Farha Naaz are seen in a stunning rendition on the top of this vintage Bollywood film poster. Salma Agha, who essays the role of a prostitute in the film, is seen at the bottom.
This vintage Bollywood film poster is a two sheeter. Two sheet posters comprise two separate individual single sheet posters measuring approximately 40″x30″ inches each. When pasted together they line up perfectly and together form one single two sheet poster. In the image provided, 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.
