Amitabh movie poster for sale: Sharaabi (1984).

Featured here is an old Bollywood poster of the 1984 blockbuster Hindi film directed by Prakash Mehra that starred the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.

Produced by Satyendra Pal under the Chaudhry Enterprises banner, Sharaabi (1984) also starred Jaya Prada, Om Prakash, Pran, Ranjeet, Deepak Parashar, Mukri, A.K. Hangal, Suresh Oberoi, Satyen Kappu, Viju Khote, Bharat Bhushan and Vikas Anand in supporting roles. Actress Smita Patil made a special appearance in the song, “Jahan Chaar Yaar Mil Jaye, Wahi Raat Ho Gulzar,” while Kader Khan wrote the dialogues of the film.

Sharaabi (1984) was Prakash Mehra’s last hit and sixth in a row with superstar Amitabh Bachchan, the other five being Zanjeer, Hera Pheri, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Laawaris and Namak Halaal. A silver jubilee “blockbuster” at the box office, Sharaabi (1984) was one of superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s last films before he temporarily gave up acting to venture into politics, making this old Bollywood poster, highly collectible!

Printed and circulated subsequent to the first release of the film (somewhere in the 1990s), this old Amitabh poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.

This Sharaabi movie poster was originally designed in photographic collage format. Photographs were cut by hand using a pair of scissors or a blade and were then pasted on a board. The background and lettering were then either hand painted or typed on a typewriter and then pasted similarly on the collage board to prepare the master design of the poster.

Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is seen in an emotional still photograph in this Sharaabi poster. Two still photos of actress Jaya Prada are seen at the bottom. A bottle of whiskey pouring into a glass is depicted prominently in this Amitabh film poster (giving away the theme of the film). The bottle image appears thrice, fading away into the background creating a “hallucinogenic effect” of sorts.

Typography used in this Amitabh Bachchan film poster is entirely in English. The background uses an interesting combination of blue, red and yellow. This Bollywood poster for sale is an ideal purchase for bar display!

The soundtrack album of Sharaabi (1984) was composed by music maestro Bappi Lahiri, while lyrics of the songs were written by Anjaan and Prakash Mehra. It was a blockbuster upon it’s release, giving Indian cinema unforgettable tracks like “Inteha Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki” sung by Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle, “De De Pyaar De,” “Manzilen Apni Jagah Hai” & “Log Kehte Hain” sung by Kishore Kumar, “Jahan Chaar Yaar Mil Jaye, Wahi Raat Ho Gulzar” sung by Amitabh Bachchan & Kishore Kumar and “Mujhe Naulakha Manga De Re, O Saiya Deewane” sung by Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle.

The film’s super hit music bagged Bappi Lahiri the Filmfare Award for Best Music Director and Kishore Kumar his 7th Best Male Playback Singer award for the song, “Manzilen Apni Jagah Hai.”

Inspired by the classic Hollywood romcom, Arthur (1981), Sharaabi (1984) was remade in Kannada as Nee Thanda Kanike (1985).
