What's with the Airtel 'Bill kya tera papa dega' ad? I find it very rude and obnoxious. Hope there is some happy sequence to this one. Also, must give prize to the person who thinks playing the same ad back to back twice makes it more interesting.

There will always be some ads which you'll just hate from the very first view.

Earlier it was "blah blah blah blah has got a Caaaaaaaaaaaaar!!" for me.

Now it is this one. Just hate this ad to the core.



Very irritating the way that kid talks. If this is how they talk in English in the region where this is made, it is pathetic.

The kuoni ad, where this guy is off for a holiday. One, it's hilarious.
And two, it is so true!! That last day at work before going for a long holiday, it's a fantastic feeling!

Kids around that age will like that idea which is why that kind of ad though I agree to your point. The look on that guy's face is priceless though.

Can anyone translate the Tata Sky 2nd connection ad where that fat geek asks his wife/gf to get a haircut ? What does she say when he shows the magazine ? and what does she say when she comes back ?

She says, "Tumhara gala kaant doon?" i.e. "Shall I cut your throat (instead of cutting the hair so sort)?"
She doesn't say anything after she comes back. It's the background voice that says, "Poochne mein kya jaata hai" i.e. "what is the harm in asking".

Thanks Kaushik. Cannot understand the relevance to a 2nd connection unless she is the second wife for him. Then

The latest thums up featuring Salman Khan is very stupid. I mean he goes to this departmental store where the owner says he has none of it coz the truck is stuck in the jam.

Being such a humble and good guy that he is, he gets a chopper, goes to the traffic jam on the bridge but doesn't take his drink there instead he brings the whole truck to the departmental store. I mean how dumb can be the ad makers can be??

Let me ruin this further for you.
Doesn't the "aaj kuchh toofani karte hain " theme song sound like a dandiya song? Play it in your head, you'll see.

The message is sarcastically derogatory and pessimistic about men, and I demand it to be taken off air . Perhaps the only good thing about the ad is the song tune. "Jo Zimmedaari nibhaate hain, jataate nahin" - so basically most men are irresponsible and run away from their family duties, but for a few. And for these few (reponsible) men, ICICI life insurance is a good product. Really sad theme in my opinion, if I look at the way they have portrayed it.

And what exactly do they mean by "Par bande acche hain"?? Directly translates to "But (fortunately) this guy turned out to be good"

Had a similar ad come out with a women-oriented theme, the zillions of mahila organizations would have created a big protest scene and got it stopped from being aired *lol*

no! it translates to but the guys are good.

the ad is kinda shown from a woman's perspective where maybe they feel their men are forgetful, lazy and irresponsible, but as a third person we see that actually the guys are not like that. for example, when the wife bends down to pick up the towel, the guy pushes the drawer in so that she doesn't hit her head when she gets up; but the wife doesn't see this. we do. the moral of the story is we might be forgetful or lazy, but we're always there for you! and that's what ICICI Prudential thingy is.. it's there for you


its all in your mind bro! you need to whooosah or something
