Artistic rare hand drawn vintage Bollywood movie poster of the hit Hindi film Agent Vinod (1977) for sale.
This is an actual surviving publicity poster of the 1977 hit Hindi film, which featured Mahendra Sandhu and Asha Sachdev.
This Bollywood action packed spy thriller was a surprise hit. The film was a loose adaptation of James Bond, with the lead protagonist playing a secret Indian agent. It inspired a recent (2012) Hindi film with the same name, making this poster highly collectible!
Printed and circulated a few years after the release of the film (somewhere in the late 1970s), this artistic hand painted old Bollywood movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
