Nostalgic Ads of Doordarshan …

Today I happened to see the old nescafe ad in some old newspaper. For a moment I just glanced at the print ad & then followed my impromptu reaction – watch the ad on youtube. In the process I saw many more old ads from doordarshan-era. Sharing them with you.

1) NESCAFE late 90s & early 2000
The jingle was a popular ringtone of masses 🙂

2) Catburys Dairy Milkmid 90s
Some trivia – this ad was sung by none other than very talented Shankar Mahadevan. Some other people to note in the ad are –
Omung Kumar (one who is trying to catch a falling choc) — The host of once a very popular show on Zee TV called Ek Minute. He is now a popular art director for live shows & tv serials.
Sonal Dabral (one with a pony & playing with a baby) — This man is a popular tv ad director. He had a long association with Zee TV – He used to work in many serials.
Sweetie from Hum Paanch (Can’t recall her real name)

3) Titan late 80s & early 90s
Aishwarya, simply beautiful !!!!!!!!!!!!! (as always) 🙂
Besides Aish ;), notice the simple wrist watch … its simple design.

4) Bajaj Auto — Hamara Bajaj 🙂 — 1988-89

5) LifeBuoy 1992
The old ad before the marketing team at HLL realized that this ad was a blunder of sorts because it projected the soap as a soap exclusively for MEN. Then they changed the branding of this product & had depicted a family in later versions of the ad … [some trivia for my readers 🙂 ]

Hope you all enjoyed these old ads from our grand old DD !!

  1. I remember a few detective shows from my old nostalgic Doordarshan days. I was a child then, but thanks to you tube, that I can continue watching them. Who can forget Jasoos Karamchand (starring Pankaj Kapoor), Super six, Barrister Roy (starring Kanwaljeet), Reporter (Shekhar Suman’s first apperance on TV), Tehkikaat and Suraag (starring Sudesh Berry)? But the show stealer of those good old days was definitely Byomkesh Bakshi. He was undoubtedly the desi Sherlock Holmes.
