Vishwanath is known for actor Shatrughan Sinha’s most iconic Bollywood dialogue, “Jali Ko Aag Kehte Hain, Bhuji ko Raakh Kehte Hain, Aur Jis Raakh Se Barood Bane, Usse Vishwanath Kehte Hain!” (That Which Is Burnt Is Called Fire, That Which Is Extinguished Is Called Ash, And The Ash With Which Gunpowder Is Made, Is Called Vishwanath), making this old Bollywood poster, highly collectible!

A stunning portrait of actress Reena Roy dancing is seen at the bottom of this Vishwanath movie poster. Two black and white photographic stills are seen at the bottom left and right respectively – one depicting Shatrughan Sinha holding on to temple bells and the other a fight scene between Shatrughan Sinha and Ranjit.
This Vishwanath movie poster is set against a minimal green and black background. Typography used in this old Bollywood poster is entirely in Devanagari Hindi, with a translation of the title appearing on the top left in English.
The soundtrack album of Vishwanath was composed by Rajesh Roshan, while lyrics were penned by Anjaan and songs sung by Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle and Manna Dey.
