My Generation: Best Indian Ads from 1990s

My Generation: Best Indian Ads from 1990s

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation=””]I watch a minimum of 30 YouTube videos in a day and I am mostly annoyed by the ads these days.

These days….Boy, do I sound old!

But any kid who was born in the 80s and grew up in the 1990s would know what good ads were all about.

Here are some of my favourite Indian Ads back from 1990s. (P.S I tried to cover the ones AIB left out in their[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]

Bajaj Bulbs

I think it’s hands down, one of my favourite ads of all times: this uncle is too cute too handle. “Roshni deta Bajaj!”[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]


I remember this coming on DD quite often and since I was really young, I didn’t really know the concept of the devil. So this young man managed to scare me. A lot. This is just one of the ADs that made it to the series.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]


Totally love this drink and I don’t think Maaza or Frooty or any other brands come close to it. The only thing funnier than the swing dancing in this commercial is Javed Jaffrey’s moustache.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”″][vc_column_text]

Crowning Glory

I’d actually forgotten this completely: thanks to my sister, Pragati for reminding me about this.

Dimple Kapadia was quite a hottie–and still is. Love the voice over too.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]

Campa Cola

I wish Pepsi and Cola had never come to India and we still had this brand of soft drinks 🙂

Did you spot Salman Khan already?[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]


Before everybody wanted to be a Raymond man, and now buy their shirts from Brooks Brothers London, there was Vimal. I still remember being teased with the tag when I told one of my friends that I had a crush on a guy surnamed Vimal. “Only Vimal….Vimal!!”[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]


I don’t know why but I remember this AD word to word. Don’t ever drink the beer unless you want to fly.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]

Ravalgaon’s Pan Pasand

Did you know that Ravalgaon was the place where they manufactured the candies?[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]


A lot of my friends have forgotten this candy. Or maybe I was allowed to eat too much candy? Hmmm.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”″][vc_column_text]

Pan Parag

Let’s admit it, Baratiyon ka swagat is very important. So important that my Father remembered to look and act like Shammi Kapoor on my sister’s wedding.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”″][vc_column_text]


They’ve had some great ads through the years but this one is my favourite: dedicated to the 2 hot models![/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]


The original advertisement featured another model in an awesome green bikini but this one got Preity Zinta famous![/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text css_animation=””]

This post will NOT be complete without the starting song of Doordarshan. It still brings out mixed emotions of wanting to watch TV and being told to do my homework.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=””][vc_column_text]


Thanks for reading and watching everybody![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
