Saas, bahu aur..
* Sapna Baabul ka.. Bidaai promo
Alok Nath warns his samdhan that his married niece is not paraya.. in the tears-meets-anger style that only he can pull off. Saas retaliates.. both her bahus watch on in shock. Finally, the non-paraya niece asks the duo to shut up (politely, of course). Chupp!
* Kal Kissne Dekha trailer
Apparently, issne dekha. Some dude from Chandigarh (is that him or the character he’s playing?) in a canary yellow jacket. He flirts with the heroine, zips in and out of frames spanning a Swiss valley, boat harbour and other phoren locales. Finally, the catch-phrase appears: ‘Beware! He can see your future.’ Good lord, how?
Keep it down!
* Voice of India: Mummy ke Superstars promo
The show began last weekend and yet the promos crowd all ad spots on the channel. Ali Asgar, Akriti Kakkar, Vishal-Shekhar, Shubha Mudgal, mammas and their bachas spill out of every frame. One would probably have even watched an episode or two if the teaser wasn’t so annoyingly forceful!
* Sabki Laadli Bebo teaser
Babuji’s dear darling daughter has been left behind at a railway station. She runs hither-thither, teary-eyed, looking for her family (what.. no mobile phone or PCO?). Enter a handsome stranger who takes charge. The tears dry up. Hey, how come all the handsome knights in shining armour never enter our lives?
* Frooti ad
Goth-looking guy sits down at a table and slurps the dregs of his Frooti tetra-pack. Cut to a dozen people on the road, in a chawl, in college, in a car, sipping the life out of their juice packs.
The tempo of slurping, gulping and sipping builds up to a peak before the goth guy returns. He sets down his choosa hua aam pack. Shudder to think what this ad would sound like on radio.
