Drawing movie poster for sale: Phaansi (1978).
Featured here is an original vintage Bollywood poster of the 1978 Hindi action drama directed by Harmesh Malhotra that starred Shashi Kapoor, Sulakshana Pandit, Pran and Ranjeet in key roles.
Asrani, Jeevan, Iftekhar, Aruna Irani, Sudhir and M. B. Shetty (Muddu Babu Shetty) played supporting roles in the film.
Printed and circulated during a subsequent release run of the film in theaters (somewhere in the late 1970s), this drawing movie poster was made for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This vintage Phaansi poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by a Bollywood poster design studio in Delhi.
Quirky hand drawn close ups of actors Shashi Kapoor, Sulakshana Pandit, Pran, Ranjeet and Asrani are seen in this drawing movie poster. The faces appear inside a hangman’s noose, giving away the theme of the film. The faces are interwoven together, signifying the overlap in their lives.
Typography used in this drawing movie poster is partly in Devanagari Hindi as well as in English, with the title appearing in Urdu as well. The main English title is seen in a hangman’s rope font in yellow at the bottom of this old Bollywood poster.
The soundtrack album of Phaansi was composed by legendary music director duo Laxmikant Pyarelal. One of the songs from the film, “Humari Bekaraar Si Nazar” sung by Lata Mangeshkar became popular at the time of the film’s release.
