The tale told in this film is like an oriental mirror of Dynasty, the hit prime time soap opera that came onto America's TV screens at the same time. Two rival Indian engineering families fight to be at the top, leaving behind all sorts of love and death casualties. The film sealed its convent-sprung leading lady, Rekha’s reputation among her one billion fans as The Bollywood Bombshell. This classic poster, sourced in Delhi from an esteemed gentleman collector in 2011, was the very first Bollywood poster to bedeck the walls of the Church Street Gallery. It remains one of our favourites to this day.
