enjoy your holidays!
cahaya - thanks. the bad thing is, i got sore throat now! i need to try all remedies suggested by friends and bloggers to get rid of it. huwaaaa!
I didn't notice the ads before when I was in the office. Very meaningful indeed.p/s: Sir, you gave me watery eyes.
cahaya - hehe. yes i watched this ads at id's blog and asked her permission to put it on my blog :)nice isn't it?
Yep! Nice. Petronas's ads superb. Credits to their production teams.
cahaya - hehe guess it belongs to yasmin ahmad?
ye k meaningful? i just don't feel anything. ish2.. anyway, happy deepavali to you.. I forgot to buy my friends' deepavali cards. They did give me Hari Raya cards. ish2..
bcd - that is bad haha. you should buy some cards and send to them as well. any open house on deepavali? i miss muruku and some traditional cookies!
Yasmin's eh? It's meaningful for me, maybe not suitable as Deepavali's Ads. Maybe, Independence's Day, Father's Day etc.p/s: this kind of Ads, selalu buat hati tersentuh. Bukan semua dapat apa yang dia nak dari lahir. Some people have to start from scratch to have 'things'. :(
cahaya - yes. agree. i guess they are making something meaningful but still remain the race for the occasion. remember the hari raya ads from petronas? the father kept some money for his son's education by selling banana fritter? i was touched!
eh bro, the 'abah' ads was directed by Afdlin Shauki. Amazing kan ?Love that ads too ;)and Happy Deepavali to Indians ;)
dayah - oh didn't know. but this one if not mistaken belong to yasmin.
Why only wishes to indians? I don't think non-indians will want a miserable deepavali. besides not all indians are hindus..
joseph - ok i should say to all Hindus :)
Macha, very touching video lah! So sad the father did not live to see his son become a pilot. I'm sure he would be so proud. Fathers are all like that. Sob!Happy Deepavali to one and all. May the Festival of Lights bring abundant blessings to all Hindus and Malaysians alike.
suituapui - don't put the father part in your shoes lah. hehe don't want to see you cry :Pp/s: have you bought any indian costume? should celebrate together ma! :P
yeah,one world,one love,one peace..
This ads, at first, perplexed me, as I viewed Deepavali as Festival of Lights, so the normal typical festive ads always have moral of the story..but its quite hard to catch it in this ads at first round, but from my own interpretation .. what i can gather from this ads is this:That Mahesh's father had gave him the wings to fly his dreams and the lights (Diwali) symbolize the hopes and ways to achieve the dreams, no matter how hard it is and how long it takes, when there's a will, there's a way. The Indians and/or Hindus in this country is often associated with works that is typical, like living in an estate, running odd jobs etc, but here's the catch - perseverance and determination in working on your dreams proves that you gonna have a successful life at par (or even better) with the rest of the races. A good one, that successfully tweaked my numb' brain at the time of watching this ads. If it's of Leo Burnett ads agency, one can expect the best :)
omg altho mcm cliche je someone has to die to make the whole ad very *ehem* melancholic, but yes, yasmin did a good job on this one. She even used her Mahesh in it. Mahesh is touted to star in some of her coming projects. Happened to be my bro's kenalan. What a small world kan?
Axim - Yeah! :)Zackzara - I almost forgot about what Hindu belief Zara just because I always ignore the race and religion part that divide us from one to another. My bad I suppose.What I got from this ads was like you said "If there's a will, there's a way". And nothing more than that. Sometimes I even have difficulty to relate the good morale of the ads with the occasion or festival. Pretty lame am I?But at least the good morale is clear enough to catch the attention and even kids could understand. But beyond that, I leave to the expert... like you :)p/s: If I'm not mistaken, you are in the ads industry too right? Riz - I like when you used "her Manesh"! Haha. Oh your bro knows Manesh? And one of my friends knows Yasmin. Hehe. Yes, what a small world :)
Thank you for the comment.
