Compilation Of Nostalgic Advertisements Altogether

I am taking you all through mesmerizing and nostalgic world of advertisement down memory lane. Awesome! It is heartening to revisit those wonderful nostalgic trip of those DD advertisements. Those lines and images are some of my fondest memories from my childhood. And the punch lines have become common in day to day life saying.
I am sure each of you will start remembering one, two or even more to add to this handful collection.
To start with –
Here is The First Indian Televission advertisement link:

WOLFARM KETCHUP
“Thoda ketchup try karo”
“Ketchup hota kaddu bhara”
“Isme kaddu nahin zara”
Thoda ketchup try karo is ad for Wolfarm. the jingle went,
“laa peele tamataron is hota hai taiyyar, Wolfarm,
naa hi koi milawat is mein, na banawati rang,
ek baar jo khaaye isko, ungli chaate baar baar, Wolfarm
man tastes ketchup and utters -
“Wah! Lagta ghar ka bana hua !!”
UPTRON TV
it’s ON
it’s ON
it’s ON
Geeky guy enters and asks - “What’s ON”
Boxer smashes from screen to the geek - “It’s Uptron”
It’s ON
It’s ON
It’s ON
Boxer questions screen “What’s on????”
Geeky guy with bruised face “It’s Uptron”
COLGATE
Colgate ka chota packetColgate ka chota packetKholo dabao (college joke had it all wired up)brush pe lagaoColgate ka chota packetColgate ka chota packet
VICKS VAPORUB
Ting Tong ... Door opens
“Zukam bad gaya na, kyon gaya tha bahar”
“Happy Birthday Mummy” - Vicks Vaporub
MAFATLAL
Humare fashions jo sub ko lubhaiyen
kya rang texture aap sub bhi jaan jayen
Bombay Dyeing .. Bombay Dyeing .. Bombay Dyeing .. Bombay Dyeing
Aise styles jo aap ko nikhare
har kapde humare hain sub se nyare .. Bombay Dyeing (4 times)
HMT WATCHES
Dalip Tahil while Shaving… checks time on his wrist watch
“God I’m late… Shanta… Shanta… SHANTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA”
He slips & falls on the coffee cart… which rolls forward and breaks window glass, taking Tahil 10 floors down into the swimming pool…
Dalip pops out of water… checks wrist watch…
“Uh… it still works”…budooom…
OK SAABUN
“Jo OK saabun se nahaye, kamal sa khil jaaye, OK nahane ka bada saabun.”
“Sach-much kaafi bada hai.”
The plot needs a little more elaboration.
Raja Bundela reaches the village home of his relative/acquaintance after what seems like a fairy tiring journey. Someone suggests a bath and Bundela immediately fishes out his cake of soap (a red looking chunk of sodium salt of fatty acid ostensibly representing Lifebuoy). Seeing this red glob his friend berates him, “kya bhai saab, ab tak laal hi pe atke ho”? “Yeh lo, naya OK gulaabi.” Cut to Raja Bundela under a shower with the jingle going in the background. Then a voiceover interrupts (presumably this is an open bathroom with a laissez faire approach) and suggests, “zaraa kushboo to lijiye.” And Raja Bundela sniffs at the soap and instead of concurring on the khusboo, again goes, “sach-much kaafi bada hai.” Such single minded devotion to size! Imagine the possibilities of this line and how grossly underused it has been!!
VIMAL WASHING POWDER
Dalip Tahil is walking on road with the 70s socialist attire (kurta, pyjama, jhola and a beard). There is a hoarding with a girl who starts off the jingle,
“suno suno aye babuji, kahan chale?”
“Kapde kyun hai maile dhule?”
Dalip responds, “Maile? Maine to laundry mein dhulwaye the!”
Girl responds, “to kya (whistle and she winks at him), farak dekh lo”.
Dalip looks at his kurta which is now chamkila white
and the jingle goes:
“vimal washing powder,
kapde dhoye jagmag jagmag ujjwal ujjwal,
safedi mein nikhaar, rangon mein bahaar,
laye jhilmil jhilmil, Vimal washing powder
HAMARA BAJAJ
Umm… yeh zameen yeh aasmaan
yeh zameen yeh aasmaan
humara kal .. humara aaj .. humara kal .. humara aaj
Bulund bharat ki bulund tasveeeeeeeeeeer - humara bajaj…
LAXMAN SYLVANIA BULBS
The plot builds up with Asrani, a domestic help, finding some bulbs conking off at home. The lady of the house instructs him to fetch Sylvania Laxman bulbs. Asrani is then shown chanting Sylvania Laxman on his way to the shop. When he reaches the shop, he doesn’t exactly remember the name of the brand.
Asrani asks the shopkeeper Viju Khote( KALIA of SHOLAY) - "Ram-Laxman bulb dena"
Kaalia - ‘aisa koi bulb nahin aata hai”.
Asrani: “kaise dukaandar hain aap? Saari duniya mein mashoor, uttam quality se bana…”.
Kaalia (demonstrating amazing smartness) interrupts - “to Sylvania Laxman chahiye aap ko”.
Asrani: “wohi to main kah raha tha, par ek nahin chhae (6).”
Kaalia: “chhae?”.
Asrani - “Poore ghar ke badal daloonga”.
VICO TURMERIC – PART I
this ad was played before Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi, Telecasted on every Friday, and Vicco will forever be linked with it.
Sangeeta Bijlani with the standard Dulhan’s haldi ceremony as the theme.
Bade naazon se paali hamaari banno,
tujhe dulhan banaaye re pyaari banno;
tujhe haldi ka ubtan lagaayein sakhiyaan
(gaggle of laughter from sundry extras posing as friends ostensibly because we see the aforesaid Banno’s legs)
teri kaaya ko kanchan banaayein sakhiyaan,
roop kundan sa chamke hamaari banno,
tujhe dulhan banaaye ree pyaari banno…
VICO TURMERIC – PART II

Twacha ki raksha karey antiseptic cream,
Roop ko sanvarey, nikharey har dam,

NIRMA DETERGETNT - It had one girl on the hoarding calling dilip tahil as"oh babuji ..." ha ha ha!!

I suddenly remembr one more-
One big guy asks his bhabhi for "koyla" as dant manjan and suddenly his "miss know it all" sister pops up and comments that "wah bhai badan ke liye doodh babdam aur daaton ke liye koyla" !!

one more on the similar lines- "waah raju ...tumhare daant to motiyon se chamak rahe hain...kyun na ho masterji...main dabur ka laal dant manjan jo istemaal karta hun .

good post !

Pushkar Jha said...

One correction- was it SARIDON or VICKS ACTION 500 where in some one asks you about sardi khansi and all those till you feel like commiting suicide.!

Bajaj Bulb
"jab main chhota baccha tha, badi sharaarat karta tha
jab meri chori pakdi jaati, tab roshan hota bajaaj
.............

Vimal Washing Powder
In the past, whenever I saw that ad I couldn't understand what the girl in the hoarding said, I always had confusion about what she said to the man(Dalip Tahil). But after reading this blog, today after 20-25 years later I have my doubts cleared.

there's one more I remember...
Jab mein chhota ladka tha
badi shararat karta tha
meri chori pakdi jaati.......
jab roshni deta Bajaj
kya rangeen jawani thi
ek raja aur ek rani thi
raja rani pakade jaate.....
jab roshni deta Bajaj
ab main bilkul boodha hoon
goli khaakar jeeta hoon
lekin aaj bhi ghar ke andar.....
roshni deta bajaj....
