Nutan film posters

Publié le 3 Juin 2013


Hello, well, it seems that only Nutan ki janmadin can rouse me from my silence these days! Sorry to say, but there's just too much OTHER stuff to do, sigh!

Anyway, I had been collecting these for the day, so even if you know most of them (true lovers of Nutan that you are all, I know ), here are all the posters of Nutan films that I had been able to lay my hands on! And if you have knowledge of any more, please let me know!

I have not included other posters, such as those that have appeared on Filmfare covers, or other supports such as VHS or DVD covers (but perhaps I've been misled, and you can tell me).

The films are in alphabetical order; if you want the chronological order, check here:

Applause :) (Claps and Claps). Really good collection. Must have taken a lot of effort. I am particularly interested in Chabbili and Chandi ki Deewar. I did'nt find any reference to these on the internet (except that Nutan sang in Chabbili).
Thanks, yes, it did take time to collect, but, you know, it's my passion!

And another one.

Thanks again!!



Well, here's one (or two) film Karma posters with Nutan on it.

Hi Pacifist, thanks for the good work; I'm posting it right now, along with the other one!


Lovely collection Yves. Hand painted/drawn posters have gone out. A poster of one of her later films Karma, though she's not on it.

Thanks Pacifist! Indeed, it's a pity they could not put her on the poster! What's a Nutan film without a Nutan poster?


I am able to follow - to some extent - what my publishers are doing with my English-edition books (especially regarding their sales in India), but it's a little more difficult when it comes to
the French edition... and yes, I did have a bit of a say in the translation (in fact, there was a minor fiasco because the person coordinating from the publisher didn't read my mail with the
final manuscript, and gave a draft version to the translator! I discovered the error only after the draft had been completely translated. It had to be redone. All the reviews I've read of Le
Camee Anglais have been good, so at least I know my translator is very good).

Thanks for the detailed info Madhu!

And I've added a poster from Shabab which I found in that book of posters I had (it didn't even occur to me to open it when I was doing the research!) But I haven't yet found the name of the artsist who
painted the poster for TGKS. At first I wondered if it might not be DR Bhosle, but no posters from him really bear the same style.


Oh, you actually saw my book, Yves! That's exciting. :-) (Even though it's been on sale for several years now, I've never come across anybody who said they saw the French translation).

Yes, but you don't seem to follow very closely what booksellers do with your books?! I suppose it's all about their networks, isn't it? Have you had a say in the translation?


Simply, ... wonderful.....

Thanks Ashok, I'm pleased you liked the collection!

Happy birthday to her!


Happy birthday, Nutan!

And, Yves - lovely collection. My personal favourites are the black-and-white one from Tere Ghar Ke Saamne and the one from Baarish (which Bollywooddeewana - who shares his birthday with the lady
- had posted on his blog last year).

Thanks Madhu, yes I also like that one quite a lot - I have a book on Bollywood posters, and I'm going to check if I can find who is the artist, because he does have a particular style, doesn't

BTW, I saw the translation of your novel the other day (The Englishman's cameo, translated Le camée anglais - I suppose you know!) at the Indian lit section of my local supermarket! I
didn't buy it, sorry to say, but I have just too many things to read and work on to add yet another layer of thickness on the pile, and anyway I'd read it in English!
