The haul includes timeless classics like "Awaara", "Shri 420", "Aag", "Barsaat", "Mera Naam Joker", "Sangam", "Dharam Karam", "Ram Teri Ganga Maili", "Bobby", and others, an official release said.
"We are thankful to the Kapoor family for entrusting the NFAI with this prestigious collection so that it can be preserved for future generations. The original negative is the ideal format for long term preservation, with the best picture and sound quality," said Prakash Magdum, director of the NFAI.
Randhir Kapoor visited the archives last month and was pleased to see the film storage facility at the NFAI, the release said.
The NFAI will also screen "Bobby" (1973), an iconic representation of youth, as a part of the PIFF. A highlight of the screening is the film's lead actor Rishi Kapoor, who will be present.
In addition to this, the NFAI will screen "Mera Naam Joker", "Sangam", "Shri 420" and "Aag" as a part of special focus on Raj Kapoor during PIFF, it added.
As per the release, a special attraction will be an exhibition of film posters from RK Films at the NFAI during the festival.
