1. Duplicate layer

4. Filter > Other > High Pass (usually use a radius between 2-3.5)

the lighting is soft, and from the top and side, there is a bit of "rembrandt" style lighting on these images often, it's designed to highlight jawlines, cheekbones,etc... Bollywood movie posters seem to be made from well-lit photographs.
so just "photoshopping' a random image shot in bright sunlight may not give you the same effect.
you're also going to wanna google "2 stripe color process"
The fields of colour are quite distinct and consistent. Almost like renaissance paintings (no bounced light). Try isolating each colour field as contrasty a black and white and build up the colour using blend modes (color/multiply/overlay/etc).
Cheers chaps, getting there
