Paytm Launches “Kisi Ki Life Ka Paytm Bano” campaign during IPL

The campaign comprises of several films which will be featured across media

MUMBAI: Digital payments company Paytm has launched its brand new campaign ‘Kisi Ki Life Ka Paytm Bano’, showcasing how technology can be a potent ‘enabler' in people’s lives. The messaging is in sync with the brand’s vision of bringing banking and financial services to half-a-billion un-served and under-served Indians.

Timed with the IPL, the first film pivots around a cricketing scenario - A few children can be seen playing ‘gully cricket’ when a young boy hits a great shot but accidently breaks the neighbor’s window. The furious neighbour steps out and starts yelling at the children. In a curious twist of events, we see the bowler who has been hit for a six digitally transferring a significant 6000 rupees to the angry neighbour using the Paytm app. He goes on to say, “Uncle, aaj khidki todi hai, kal record bhi todega” (Uncle, he has broken the window today, tomorrow he will break records).

Another film of this series shows an elderly man standing in a long queue to pay his electricity bill. He seems visibly unsettled as his wife is locked out of the house but he cannot leave the line as it is the last day for bill payment. In an interesting twist, the bill cashier who has been witness to the old man’s distress, steps out and helps the old man pay his bill online on the Paytm app.

The new campaign consists of several such evocative yet light-hearted messages that will be highlighted in upcoming brand films. These films will be released across broadcast, online and mobile channels during the IPL – India’s biggest sporting event.

Paytm vice president Jaskaran Kapany said, “At Paytm, we firmly believe that technology is not merely about the benefits transferred to an individual, but also about the benefits transferred to the collective i.e society at large. Our new campaign aims to not only bridge the divide between the tech-savvy & the unfamiliar, but also to leverage the power of technology as an ‘enabler’ of the masses & make a difference in their lives. Our new brand thought of ‘Kisi ki life ka Paytm Bano’ embodies this philosophy & urges everyone to lend a helping hand to others. And what could’ve been a better launch vehicle for this new brand thought than the IPL, India’s greatest sporting event which has crores of Indians hooked on to it. We are confident that this new campaign will go a long way in strengthening the trust that crores of India’s have reposed in us.”
