Synopsis
In the heart of Mumbai lives Sheikh Rehman, the city‘s last painter of film posters. His studio is run in the old masters‘ style – behind the screen of an old Hindifilm cinema. Here, Rehman is both artist and guru, comedian and philosopher. But modernity is taking over and the audiences that have come in for generations for refuge and entertainment are dwindling. With the theatre facing potential demolition, marketing has turned to more plastic movie posters to lure in more people, replacing the need for Rehman’s original work. It’s a hopeless struggle but Rehman won’t give up ...
ORIGINAL COPY is a delightful ode to life and the cinema, a sensitive portrayal of the magic of film, its transience, and its immortality.
As Rehman says, movies are like life: "The reel keeps rolling, and the movie goes on."
