Old Bollywood movie poster of the hit Hindi film Shaan (1980) for sale.
Featured here for sale is an old Bollywood poster of the 1980 classic Hindi film which featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1980s / early 1990s), this Shaan movie poster was designed for publicity of a subsequent release of the film but never ended up being used.
This old Amitabh poster features a quirky hand drawn design. Amitabh Bachchan is seen holding a gun along with Shashi Kapoor on the top of this Shaan movie poster. The title of the film appears in Devanagari Hindi font on the top. A smaller photographic still of Bollywood’s infamous villain Kulbhushan Kharbanda (who played the memorable character of Shakaal in the film) is seen below. Large quirky hand painted renditions of Amitabh Bachchan, Sunil Dutt, Shashi Kapoor and Shatrughan Sinha are seen at the bottom of this Shaan movie poster. Interestingly, all of them are seen holding guns.
Shaan is a 1980 blockbuster Hindi film directed by Ramesh Sippy (director of the epic film Sholay). Despite having an amazing star cast, the film failed to match the success of Sholay (1975). RD Burman’s music in the film however ensured that the film became a commercial success.
Songs like “Yamma Yamma”, “Pyar Karne Waale” & “Jaanu Meri Jaan” went on to become a rage throughout the nation and are still played today.
