No use complaining as no action will be taken. The only time people object to ads is when they see women in mini skirts or acting bold. That's the only 'obscenity' and 'objectionable material' recognisable in India.

OT: If people write their names on the walls inside a temple (recently saw this happening in an important/big temple), then will they stop themselves from doing this on monuments & other places ?

I'm not able to find any mail id of PR communication of Reliance communication to send them a mailer. Does anyone know? All I got is these two mail-id's(sent a mail though) but which I think is of no use [rworld.feedback[ at ]relianceada.com;customercare[ at ]relianceada.com. Can anyone provide some better option?

Did you guys see the BSNL ad with Preity Zinta refusing to marry the guy because he did not have a BSNL landline?
Pathetic ad - and another ad that showcases how terrible the Indian marriage scene is!

Check out the new Swift advt - the one where a man and girlfriend/wife drives the swift like a nut, with a football in the back seat and when stopped, the lady acts as if she is on a pregnancy pain (football tucked in)!

Now how more stupid can you get and pass the message that breaking rule is fine as long as you know how to cheat the law / not get caught!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is just a personal opinion.
Concept came from the film "Duel" by Steven Spielberg. Shot in 1971 and it was a tight budget movie. Guys, if you can manage, see the film. Here is the link:

Sorry to say that SX4 commercial couldn't pull out any drama.
