Rowdy Rathore Hand-Painted Posters

Though the film trailer is looking everything apart from fresh, with a glorified, ever-powerful hero (Now, where have we seen that before, ha?), thundering dialogues, the bashing up of ugly, burly villains and a heroine showcasing her body wares; the only 'look again' stuff have been the hand painted posters and the punchlines to go with it. We applaud the copywriter(s) and the artists. The first two posters came out way back in January, a couple more a day before Holi, in March.

The Shawshank Redemption: A Poster Celebration

The 1994 movie that is one of the best and underrated ever

'The best films never win Oscars' tag holds true for the film too

When released first, the film had a lukewarm reception, barely able to recover its production cost

Now, the popular movie website IMDB has the movie at the top of its list of 250 best movies ever

Andy Dufresne: [in letter to Red] Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
 

One of the film posters that play an important part in the movie

The poster that almost gives it away, those who have seen the movie will know

Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction' Posters

The cult 1994 film

Non-linear storyline

About 2 hit men, a gangster's wife, a couple at a restaurant, a boxer and a misdirected bullet 

As in Tarantino movies, characters talk a lot and use the swear words with wholesome abandon

An injection, missed bullets, a purse with a swearword, a gangster specializing in cleaning up after a murder, blah, blah, blah 

Irrelevant and yet well-arranged trash
