My Favorite & Yours.. Old Door Darshan Ads

When I start recalling those Door Darshan ads from the 80s ad 90s, I can't help but recall Nirma to be the most easily remembered as there were so many versions of it and probably the most famous one.

washing powder nirma..
washing powder nirma
doodh ki safedi nirma se aaye
rangeen kapda bhi khil khil jaaye
sab ki pasand nirma!
washing powder nirma
washing powder nirma

Then there was another version of the goti/sabun that had a line like this one:

ab aap samjhe yeh tikiya maine kyon li?

That one had the line "ek sau pachaas gram ki tikiya ____ dhero kapda dhoye aur zyada chale..."

There was also one where the little girl from the billboard starts singing "suno suno aye babuji.. kapde kyon itne maile hai?"

Do you remember this one?

chehre ki sundarta ko nikhaare naya hamaam
se saaf rakhe tan ko de taazgi hamaam
yeh ghar ghar ka hai pyaara
hamaam hamaam hamaam!

fresca! fresca!
sundar suhana fresca khushbu ka khazana fresca!

tandurusti ki raksha karta hai lifebouy
lifebouy hai jahaan tanduristi hai wahaan!
LIFEBOUY!

I think my favorite one (music and singing wise) was the Liril one that started with a girl in white under waterfalls in a rain forest like place and singing "la.. la la la la la la la la la la la la.."

It's funny all the ads I remember on top of my head are of soaps. I know I'm forgetting Rin here.

There were the ones with Rasna, Maggie, Complan (I am a Complan boy *elbow poke* I am a Complan girl!), Boost (with Kapil Dev saying Boost is the secret of my energy), and my favorite of all Humara Bajaj.

Lijjat paapad

The one with bunny going:

..furram.. farram....furram.. farram..
swaad swaad mein lijjat lijjat paapad
lijjat paapad! eh.. eh eh.. eh.. eh eh..

~~~~~*~~~~~

Hawkins pressure cooker

Hawkins ki seeti baji
khushbu hi khushbu udi..
(can't recall the rest)

~~~~~*~~~~~

Lakhani shoes

The song was based on "mera juta hai japani" song and ended with "..rang-birangi shoes lakhani, yeh hai campus shoes lakhani...".

~~~~~*~~~~~

Thumbs Up

taste the thunder! or should I say? toofaani thanda! :)


~~~~~*~~~~~

Daabar laal dant-manjan

daanton ki kare hifaazat
moti sa chamkaaye
daabar laal dant-manjan se mukhda khil khil jaaye

arre raaju! tumhaare daant to motiyo jaise chamak rahe hai!
kyon na ho masterji.. main daabar ka laal dant-manjan jo istemaal karta hoon

~~~~~*~~~~~

Seema bulbs aur tubes

ghar ghar mein ujiyala laaye
seema seema seema

I think this was a Sridevi-ad

~~~~~*~~~~~

Oh my all time favorite:

jab main chhota baccha tha
badi sharaarat karta tha
jab meri chori pakdi jaati
tab roshan hota bajaaj!

ab main boodha.. (can't recall what goes here)
goli khaakar jeeta hoon
(....)

~~~~~*~~~~~

Khetan fan

~~~~~*~~~~~

Oneida TV

This one had green-colored taklu devil guy with tail.

Do you remember any other ones?

hahahaha! Just happened to land on your blog and was surfing through the posts when I came across this one! Well, I was mentally "singing" many of them while reading the post :D :D

How can you forget the iconic "Lalita-ji" ad from Surf?!
"Bhai Saheb! Surf ki kharidari mein hi samajhdari hai" :)

Nidhi, thanks for the comment and the Surf ad reminder. That "Lalita-ji" woman always reminds me of the actress Kavita Chaudhary from Udaan serial. For some reason they look so similar. Or may be they're the same woman? Speaking of other soap ads, I think Palmolive also had one. I can't recall that too much though.

Bubblegum, thanks! Glad you like it too.

How can I forget Vicco.. with a very yong Sangeeta Bijlani. I'll add that to the list. That reminds me of Pan Parag ad with Shammi Kapoor saying "hum chaahte hai aap baraatiyon ka swaagat paan parag se keejiye" to Ashok Kumar.

I'm missing the Dabur Chyavanprash ad on the list too, along with Vicks vaporub.
