Old Bollywood poster of the blockbuster Hindi film Sharaabi (1984) for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage poster of the 1984 film that featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film, this movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This old Amitabh movie poster was originally designed by cutting out images of actors from separate still photographs (shot on set location) and pasting them on a board. The typography is hand drawn / hand painted, which makes this poster an interesting mix of two very different design techniques.
The poster features a large cut out photograph of Amitabh Bachchan holding a glass of whiskey (typifying his character as an alcoholic in the film), with a still photo of lead actress Jaya Prada (who plays a singer in the film) on the top. The typography used in this poster is entirely in English.
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.
