Classic Hindi horror film poster of the blockbuster Bollywood horror movie Purana Mandir (1984) for sale.
This is an actual surviving publicity poster of the 1984 Hindi horror film made by the undisputed kings of Bollywood horror, the Ramsay brothers.
Purana Mandir became a blockbuster hit at time of its release and catapulted the horror genre to mainstream recognition in Bollywood cinema, making this poster highly collectible!
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the early 1990s), this Hindi horror film poster was printed for publicity of the movie but never ended up being used.
This poster was originally designed by cutting out images of actors from separate still photographs (shot on set location) and pasting them on a board. The background and typography are hand drawn / hand painted, which makes this horror movie poster an interesting mix of two very different design techniques.
This old Hindi horror film poster features a sizzling still photograph of one of the supporting actresses from the film on the bottom left. A photo still of the demon/ghost “Samri” appears on the top of this scary horror movie poster.
