The Stuff Vintage Bollywood Sci-fi's are made of...

Tin (Gian) Robots. Damsel in distress. And lots of inspiration from an Ed Wood style Hollywood Sci-fi called 'Forbidden Planet' complete the ingredients for the poster of the 1963 Bollywood movie 'Rocket Tarzan'.

While rummaging through a book on Bollywood posters, this gem of a poster in the sci fi category caught my eye. I tried searching for the movie online but all I found were a couple of songs which did not suit the theme of the movie.

Here's the poster of the movie 'Forbidden Planet' (1956) which definitely was the reference for the artist who designed the poster.

Here's another poster of a French Sci Fi movie with the same look. So, which one do you like the most?
