Taal poster for sale.
Featured here is a classic Bollywood movie poster of the blockbuster film, Taal (1999).
This is an actual surviving original Bollywood movie poster of the 1999 musical romance directed by Subhash Ghai that starred Anil Kapoor (of Slumdog Millionaire fame), Akshaye Khanna and Aishwarya Rai in lead roles.
Amrish Puri, Alok Nath, Sushma Seth, Mita Vashisht, Saurabh Shukla, Rajesh Khera and Bobby Darling played supporting roles in the film, while Anita Hassanandani, Shahid Kapoor and Subhash Ghai played cameos.
Taal was the highest grossing film of the year in overseas markets – becoming a massive success in both the US and UK. It became the first Indian film to reach the top 20 on Variety’s box office list, making this Taal poster highly collectible!
Printed and circulated during the original first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1990s), this Taal poster was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
Aishwarya Rai is seen in a large stunning close up in this original Bollywood poster. She appears in a sensuous pose with her eyes closed and her lips open. A full figure silhouette of her is seen at the bottom in a dancing pose. The title of this Taal poster is seen in Devanagari Hindi font at the bottom. The subtitle of the film, “The Beat of Passion …” is seen written below it. An announcement on the top of this Aishwarya Rai poster reads in Devanagari Hindi, “Subhash Ghai’s film.”
Taal won several Filmfare awards – most notably the Best Music Director Award for AR Rahman’s brilliant compositions in the film. Songs from the film became a rage throughout the nation at the time of the film’s release. The soundtrack of the film made it to the “Greatest Bollywood Soundtracks of All Time” list.
Tracks like “Taal Se Taal Mila” and “Ramta Jogi” are counted as AR Rahman’s finest and played till today.
