MUMBAI: Thums Up, India’s iconic soft drink brand marked the country’s 69th Independence Day with a tribute to the nation’s Real Heroes and the country used this film as a platform to express its love a million times within 48 hours.

Set against the diverse cultural and regional canvas of India, the film captures the journey of a young Indian soldier as he travels from his military base to his home in Kerala, making one stop in his journey to the martyrs’ home to deliver the news of his martyrdom, personally. The narrative navigates through a string of anecdotal situations of various people he meets during his journey on route to the heart wrenching moment when the young soldier finally reaches the martyr’s family. The film concludes with the soldier enjoying a happy moment with his family before an alert is commissioned to all soldiers cancelling all vacations and an order to report to basecamp. Through the soldier’s journey, the film captures the diverse locations and myriad of cultures in India, while reminding the audiences about the unparalleled perseverance our brave soldiers display every day.

Speaking about the campaign, Debabrata Mukherjee, VP – Marketing & Commercial, Coca-Cola India and South West Asia said, “Thums Up has always stood for strength and a spirit of inspiration. We believe that real heroes are the ones who have inner strength and compassion. This independence day, we wanted to celebrate the protectors of our independence, the 'True Heroes' of our nation. We wanted to salute the sons of the soil for their undying spirit and indefatigable courage.

He further added, "It gives us great joy that the effort has received such a heartwarming response. In just 48 hours, the film has been seen over a million times on social media; a clear reflection of the nation's love, appreciation and respect for the real heroes who keep us safe, everyday."

Conceptualized by Qyuki Digital Media Pvt Ltd. and Asylum Films, the Digital Film and its music has been created by Dhruv Dhanekar of Wah Wah Music.

Commenting on the film Samir Bangara, Co-founder and MD of Qyuki.com said, “This film is special at many levels. Both the Director, Razy Ghai and I grew up as armed forces kids and that was a big inspiration for the script and execution of the film. We are proud to be working with one of India's most iconic brands Thums Up, to salute the true heroes of our country."
