Advertisement industry is one of the biggest industry globally. Ad film makers do a lot of efforts in the making of a particular ad for a brand. The brand owners , also tie up with the films and we have seen many a times that how marketing or branding of a particular product is done

They use movies as an effective advertising platform!

But many a times it’s just an exaggeration of the brands in movies and seems that the ad is promoting a film.

Have a look at some of the movies , over-promoting the ads :

1. Mountain Dew in Mission Istaanbul.

Remember Mission Istaanbul? Mountain Dew had a grand branding in the movie .

It was Mountain Dew Vs entire cast of the movie.

There is a scene , where Zayed and Vivek are standing with the softdrink can in their hand.Where Zayed looks little confused but Vivek is confident.

So, the makers of the film decide to give him this extremely important message.

2. Bournvita in the Koi… Mil Gaya franchise.

It seems Jadoo was also having Bournvita apart from solar energy . Rohit was gaining all those magical powers with Bournvita , I guess…

And not just Rohit. Even his son Krrish is addicted to it.

1600221347 651 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

The placement of Bournvita is such, that even if you close your eyes, you won’t be able to ignore it.

3. Sansui television in Jaani Dushman.

By now, we all agree that Jaani Dushman was on a trip of its own.

1600221347 159 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

But having a full-blown commercial for a television set right in the middle of the movie was crazy even by Jaani Dushman’s standards.

1600221347 417 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

One moment Akshay and Rambha are watching television…

1600221347 111 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

And the next thing you know, there’s a full-blown ad for Sansui televisions right in the middle of the movie.

1600221347 231 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

And there’s not just one ad.

There are two of them.

Back to back!

1600221347 328 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

First, they come out of the blue. And then they just don’t end.

Talk about feeling cheated.

1600221347 161 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

4. Pass Pass in Yaadein.

There are a lot of things family bonds upon.

But there are very few families that show the kind of glee and happiness this family shows regarding popular mouth freshener Pass Pass.

1600221347 228 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

It’s pretty evident that the only reason the family eats food is not that they’re hungry.

But so that they can have Pass Pass later.

After all, it does make the father-daughter bond stronger.

5. Lyra, Close-Up, Hero and Make My Trip in Half Girlfriend.

You know what’s a bigger talent than making a film on a Chetan Bhagat novel?

Advertising 4 brands in a single song.

1600221348 779 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

It starts off with Lyra…

And then boom! In the very next shot, we find out who all had crowdfunded this movie.

6. Maruti Ertiga in Mere Dad Ki Maruti.

Why go for a product placement when your entire movie can be a product in itself?

Which is probably what Mere Dad Ki Maruti was.

1600221348 321 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

Maruti Ertiga was launched in India in April 2012. And a year later, this film was made to popularize the car amongst the masses.

1600221348 86 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

And they made sure that everybody got the message.

By making the central plot of the movie about a guy who tries to locate his dad’s Maruti Ertiga that he’s misplaced.

7. Black Dog in Shahenshah.

Drinking might be injurious to health but brand placement is extremely beneficial to the brand.

As was told to us via Amrish Puri when he asks the bartender to serve him Black Dog because he’d seen a ‘gori titli’ that day. And was now feeling as if ‘millions of black dogs’ were barking from within him. What a dialogue…

8. Nike in Yuvraaj.

Nike was visible in the scenes , more than the acting skills of Anil Kapoor .

1600221348 385 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

Anil did that branding well!!

9. Tide in Chup Chup Ke.

Marketing of the detergent brand Tide was done in the movie.

1600221348 902 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

More than the actors, the makers made sure Tide was captured in all its glory.

1600221348 23 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

This angle is the best one probably..

10. Domino’s Pizza in Phir Hera Pheri.

BabuRao in the movie , seems to love Dominos as the marketing skills just reflects the same.

1600221348 526 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

Why else would they put in an entire segment where Babu bhaiyya waxes eloquent about Domino’s aadha ghanta nahin toh free offer?

1600221348 226 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

11. Parle-G in Aabra Ka Daabra.

One of the largest selling brand of glucose biscuits in the world is none other than Parle-G. It was weird to watch the advertisement of the same as it does not require much publicity.

1600221348 749 20 Times When Products Were Cleverly Promoted In Bollywood Movies.webp

They even advertised Parle-G that had already been advertised as a print ad in the movie.

Ad-ception!

Product Placements in Bollywood

King Khan is one person who can get away with anything. He literally incorporated a mini advertisement on Nokia Lumia in Chennai Express and we didn’t bat an eyelash. He coolly held a packet of Lay’s magic masala in Main Hoon Na and all we said was “No One Can Eat Just One”. And well, he pulled off that Tag Heuer watch on Don 2’s poster!
