Black and white cinema posters for sale: Zahreelee (1977).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the 1977 Hindi film that starred Neetu Singh, Shailendra Singh, Jalal Agha and Bindu in prominent roles.
Directed by V.N. Reddy, Zahreelee was based on the story of a museum heist. The film also starred Sharat Saxena (in his debut role), Imtiaz, Purnima, Jairaj and Veerendra in supporting roles.
Printed and circulated during the first release of the film in theaters (somewhere in 1977), this original Bollywood poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This black and white cinema poster was originally designed in mixed media format by combining both oil on canvas media as well as photographic collage techniques. Bollywood poster designer R. Krishna Swamy is credited with creating the artwork with the printed stamp of Arkey Arts Studio seen on the bottom right.
The title of the film appears at the top in stunning 3D styled typography in yellow. Set against a bright red background, it generates instant recall. Black and white still photos of action scenes from the film appear above and below the title respectively.
A stunning large black and white photograph of actress Neetu Singh wearing vintage sunglasses is seen prominently in this old Bollywood poster. Smaller close up photos of Shailendra Singh and debutant Sharat Saxena are seen tinted in yellow below.
Typography used in this black and white cinema poster is entirely in English, with a translation of the title appearing in Devanagari Hindi as well.
The soundtrack album of Zahreelee was composed by Sharda.
