India’s Incredibly Cool Hand-Drawn Movie Posters. Ramachandraiah prints movie posters for a living. He’s done it ever since 1971, when he bought an ancient lithograph press. He keeps it in a factory north of Bangalore, far from the English town where it was built 111 years ago. Most movie posters here are lavish. They’re digitally-printed, full-color, and reach up to 30 feet long. Ramachandraiah’s posters aren’t.
His are five-color, hand-drawn, and measure just 20 inches by 30 inches. In his small store-front, filled with shrines to a famous Kannada actor, Ramachandraiah sat me down with a tiny cup of coffee, and plucked two biscuits from a package. “You must dip them,” he said, miming a biccie-dunk. It had taken me a month to track his shop down. I wanted copies of the posters — all of them — especially the American ones. But more than that, I wanted my own poster. “Okay, okay, drink your coffee,” he said. Outside on the sidewalk, the artist Raju set aside the poster he’d just finished for a Hindi-dubbed 3D run of Underworld: Awakening.
