Artwork film 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 the debut release of the film in theaters (somewhere in 1978), this vintage artwork film poster was made for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.

This original Bollywood poster was originally designed in hand painted format using an oil on canvas medium by one of the leading Bollywood poster design studios in Bombay, Loomba Arts.

Stunning hand drawn close ups of actors Shashi Kapoor, Sulakshana Pandit and Pran are seen in this brilliantly illustrated artwork film poster. The faces are interwoven together, signifying the overlap in their lives.

Superb brushstrokes capturing raw emotion and energy have been applied on the faces, keeping lighting and highlights in strong focus. A lot of texture using broad brushstrokes is seen over the faces of Shashi Kapoor and Pran, giving them a rugged appearance in this Phaansi movie poster.

Typography used in this vintage Bollywood poster is entirely in English, with the title appearing in Devanagari Hindi as well. The title is seen in a hangman’s rope font in yellow at the bottom, giving away the theme of the film.

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.
