Featured here for sale is an old Bollywood poster of the super hit Hindi film Sangam, directed and produced by the Showman of Indian cinema Raj Kapoor, featuring him in a leading role opposite Vyjayanthimala. The love triangle also starred Rajendra Kumar.
Released in Technicolor, Sangam was Raj Kapoor’s first color film, and is considered one of his finest, making this old Bollywood poster highly collectible.
Printed and circulated somewhere in the late 1970s, this old Raj Kapoor film poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
A beautiful hand painted rendition of Raj Kapoor and Vyjayanthimala is seen prominently in the center, set against a picturesque background. Rajendra Kumar is seen in a smaller hand drawn avatar at the bottom of this old Bollywood poster for sale.
The magnum opus spared no expense in its shoot, with many scenes shot in exotic foreign locations such as Venice, Paris, and Switzerland. Sangam is credited with starting the trend of shooting expensive song sequences in foreign locations outside India.
The music album of the film was a blockbuster. Songs like “Bol Radha Bol,” “Dost Dost Na Raha,” “Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega,” “Yeh Mera Prem Patra,” “Main Kya Karoon Ram” are fondly remembered and played till date.
