Sri Raam Vanavas
Old Telugu cinema posters for sale: Sri Raam Vanavas (1977).
This is an actual surviving rare original vintage Bollywood poster of the 1977 Hindi film which was originally made in Telugu as Seetha Rama Vanavasam (1977).
Directed by Kamalakara Kameshwara Rao, Sri Raam Vanavas starred Ravi Kumar, Jaya Prada, Kaikala Satyanarayana, Gummadi, Saroja Devi, Anjali Devi, Vijaylalita and Jamuna.
A mythological film based on the epic of Ramayana, the film told the story of Lord Rama’s 14 year exile in the wilderness. Special effects in the film were provided by Babubhai Mistry, the pioneer of special effects in Indian cinema.
Printed and circulated during the debut release of the film in theaters (late 1970s), this old Telugu cinema poster was designed and printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Sri Raam Vanavas movie poster features a combination of both photographic as well as hand painted design techniques. Still photos from the film have been arranged in an interesting fashion and over painted using a mix of colors.
A black and white still photo featuring Hanuman bowing down in worship in front of Lord Ram, Laxman and Sita is seen on the top left of this Bollywood poster. Demon king Ravana appears at the center holding a mace in his hand. He is seen flanked by two dancers. A large close up of Jaya Prada is seen on the right of this old Telugu cinema poster. The title of the film appears in both Devanagari Hindi as well as in English on the top.
