Mr. SardiZukaam speaks out in Hamdard's new TVC

MUMBAI: Hamdard has rolled a new TVC for its herbal cough and cold remedy product; Joshina. The campaign positions the brand as a means to protect users from the effects of seasonal change and an impending cough and cold situation.

The new campaign depicts an engaging narrative through the personification of Cough and Cold that makes people incapacitated. Shown from the perspective of 'Mr. SardiZukaam' (Cold & Cough) depicts his plight that people are no longer scared of him as children continue to ride their bicycles in the rain; the elderly savor ice-creams in the severe cold, amongst other scenarios.

The campaign has been developed by Rediffusion Y&R, and was shot by Jigsaw Pictures Productions. The creative will be carried forward in the form of a TVC and on various digital platforms.

Speaking on the key insights of the campaign, Hamdard chief sales and marketing Mansoor Ali, said,“With the advent of monsoon, people especially the young and the aged, are susceptible to common cold easily. With this campaign, we want to re-instill people’s faith in the power of herbal products that are fast, healthy and with no side-effects. The campaign is cheeky but delivers a strong message and brings the value of the product in the fore-front effectively. We sincerely believe that the Joshina TVC will be remembered for the differentiated treatment and narrative.”

Hamdard Laboratories senior brand manager Nilotpal Singh said, “Joshina as a product in the category is different. To have the syrup at the onset of the first signs of cold is itself a “Prevention”. This year the creative takes a bash at cold that we believe relishes at the thought of incapacitating us. Joshina takes away its wing and that makes the advertising this year so interesting”.
