Film poster for the Hindi film 'Kudrat' (Nature), released in the year 1981.

The poster, made with the cut and paste technique features actors Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Raaj Kumar and female lead Hema Malini. In the frame of the poster, there is a quarter-length cut out of the characters Dr. Naresh Gupta (Vinod Khanna) and Chandamukhi (Hema Malini), where they seem to be engaged in a hearty conversation. Next to this image, in the top centre is a bust length cut out of the character Choudhury Janak Singh (Raaj Kumar). To the bottom right of this image is a cut out image of the
character Mohan Kapoor (Rajesh Khanna) and an overlapping image of Chandramukhi. To the left of this image in the centre is an image of Chandramukhi and Dr. Narendra, in which both are dancing. To the left of this image is an cut-out of the characters Madhav and Paro in an embrace. These are the past-life characters of Mohan and Chandramukhi from the film, which means that both Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini play a double role in the film. Below the central image of Vinod Khanna and Hema Malini dancing, the credits are printed as 'B.S. KHANNA'S ', next line; 'KUDRAT'. Below the film's name, more credits are printed. From the left, first comes 'DIRECTED BY', next line; 'CHETAN ANAND'. Next to this is 'MUSIC', next line; 'R.D. BURMAN'. Along the right border near the bottom right corner is 'TULIKA', printed in a vertical fashion. On the poster's bottom border, towards the right, the printer's credits are printed as 'PRINTED BY: NENSEY OFFSET, TEL: 4125239/4126589'.
