100 years of Indian Cinema

Outlook launched it's last issue (28th May) celebrating the 100 years of Indian Cinema and had requested the minimal movie poster gang to submit original artworks to showcase in it. I contributed three posters for it. I wished to do more but was restricted by the tight work schedule. I watched Pather Panchali for this project and I consider that to be one of the most memorable experience of the project. And to mention the classic beauty of Waheed Rehman in Kaagz ke Phool and my childhood memory of Mukesh's songs from Mera Naam Joker were the revisited treasured bookmarks.  


I am planning to continue this as a personal project and if anyone wants to own the prints, do let me know. You can see rest of the published posters here.

  1. After being so used to associating Indian Movie Posters with a particular style, I must say these minimal results are suprising. They are stunning. Really hope you find time to make more of these.
    The Minimal Movie Poster blog is absolutely great too.

    1. Thanks Priya. To be honest these posters are not very minimalist but I just wanted to do it in this particular style. The minimalist movie poster blog is an initiative of Abhinav Bhatt and it serves well as a platform for fan artworks to be displayed.

  2. Kaagaz Ke Phool and Pather Panchali.
    Mind = Blown.
