Hand painted vintage Bollywood film poster for sale of the Hindi movie Suhag (1958).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood film poster for sale of the 1958 film Suhag, which starred two of the biggest stars in Tamil cinema, Sivaji Ganesan and Gemini Ganesan in prominent roles. Directed by B. R. Panthulu, the film starred M.V. Rajamma in the lead role.
Printed and circulated during the original first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1950s), this vintage Bollywood film poster for sale was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This vintage Bollywood film poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by a leading poster design studio in Madras, making it highly collectible.
This vintage poster is a classic example of Bollywood film poster art. The artwork is minimal yet appealing. A brilliant hand painted rendition of a man on an elephant is seen prominently in this hand painted vintage Bollywood film poster.
Suhag featured two of the biggest superstars of Tamil cinema together on screen – the “King of Romance” Gemini Ganesan and “The Marlon Brando of Indian Cinema” Sivaji Ganesan.
