Amitabh movie posters of the blockbuster Hindi film Sharaabi (1984) for sale.
Featured here for sale is an old Amitabh movie poster of the 1984 film that featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema in the lead role. Pran, Om Prakash, Ranjeet, Suresh Oberoi and Jaya Prada played supporting roles in the film.
Printed and circulated subsequent to the first release of the film (somewhere in the 1990s), this poster of Amitabh Bachchan was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Sharaabi movie poster was originally designed as a handmade collage on a board. 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.
The 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!
Sharaabi (Drunkard) is a 1984 Hindi film produced and directed by Prakash Mehra. This 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.
The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Prada, Pran, Om Prakash and Ranjeet. The film’s blockbuster music was composed by Bappi Lahiri, for which he bagged several awards. Sharaabi became a silver jubilee “Blockbuster” at the box office and went on to be another mega hit of superstar Amitabh Bachchan. This was also one of Amitabh’s last films before he temporarily gave up acting to venture into politics.
Songs like “Inteha Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki” sung by Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle and “De De Pyaar De” by Kishore Kumar became a rage and continue to be played till today.
