It's like advertising a suzuki swift that sounds like a V8.
Even in one lubricant ad. I think castrol's. The guy picks his child for school and when the engine of the splendor starts (or better to say: roars to life), it can put even a CBR to shame.

The Pro Kabbadi League Ads - Boy there are so irritating. Specially the one where bigger kids try to bully a younger kid!

The new Honda Mobilio Ad. The worst of automobile ads are back. Very irritating.

Somehow the angle of the engine and pilot madams seat doesn't gel. The left wing engine catches fire and the next shots show the pilot madam facing the burning left engine while steering the plane. Kuch toh gadbad hai .. Daya!

Fikar not. The CID team has joined hands with Bajirao Singham.

Yaay for justice. for me.


P.S - I'd like to see Daya break open the cabin door and send everyone onto oblivion!

Glad I could induce some lol. Laughter aside, this show could prove informative and provide a new insight into alternative and clean* methods of propulsion. Have a look:

The look on madams face after she sees the jet fly on its course is priceless :-)
Also wondering about the fate of passengers on bad breath days .

I personally liked both the new hero adverts, Extreme and the ZMA.
Both are illogical no doubt, but both adverts give a good view of the bikes and very good sound tracks.
The senic views shown in the ZMA Advert is pleasing as well.

On contrary, forget about the artic and penguins, its not possible to leave a ship in the middle of the journey, especially when its stuck.
On top of that leaving on a bike.!!
Does not make any sense at all.


The latest hero advert is good; where in they have shown the multiple technologies and designs Hero is developing.
Hero is even developing a diessel engine. Surprised.

The new FZ advert, nothing attractive about it.
John's body shown as inspiration to design the bike. Oh, NO Yamaha...!!
Nor do I want to ride John.

A very irritating ad tune which has somehow lodged itself in my brain.
The idea 'nahin banenge ullu' anthem ad which has been shot like a early 90s national integration song. Full marks for the creativity (including a lata mangeshkar sing-a-like)



Resorting to some Pink Floyd to forget the tune!

Also loved the Hero Zma(Ship in ice) and the Xtreme ad (the banned -getting ready on a bike). A breath of fresh air.

The Mahindra commercial vehicle ad is also inspiring - Taqdeer Badal De..

The Mahindra Ad is a beautiful and inspirational advertisement and one of the best auto ads after a long long time.

My all time favourite ad is the old Tata Safari Dicor "Reclaim your Life Ad"!!



Haunting Music and equally beautiful graphic. Truly classy!!
