Platinum Evara is #RedefiningRituals this Women’s Day

The campaign has been conceptualised by Dentsu Webchutney

MUMBAI: To mark Women’s day, Platinum Evara has unveiled a new digital campaign ‘#RedefiningRituals’ to celebrate the invincible spirit of the woman who with her rare choices is altering the narrative of cultural norms and practices, making it a better world for her present and the future generations.

The campaign is supported by a short film, conceptualised by Dentsu Webchutney, which endearingly captures the sentiment of a young bride to be, who firmly believes that a ritual like “Kanyadaan” can never dictate her relationship with her father, she cannot be given away and donated. She indeed questions the relevance of a Kanyadaan in a world where regressive rituals have no space & redefine it in the context of an equivalent role – she will always be their child first - her father’s daughter first.

In a first of its kind initiative, Platinum Evara will host a digital wedding on its social media handles on 8 March, which promises to alter and widen the lens through which traditional rituals are seen. The wedding will highlight how these rituals can be given newer meanings suited to the more equal, progressive and modern world of today.

Platinum Guild International director, consumer marketing Sujala Martis commented on the campaign, “Think there exists a lot of dichotomy in our society today – while on one hand, we want to say the bride to be should be brave, treated equal, respected – we unintentionally very often send missed signals – can her identity be subsumed? Can her closest relationships be dictated? Can a parental debt be paid back? Is a marriage marker meant for one gender alone? How can any weddings rituals determine any of this?  We want to celebrate the women who have made rare choices & sent out a strong signal into the world by choosing to not follow or reinterpret them.” 

Dentsu Webchutney executive creative director Pravin Sutar said, “While brides are meticulously planning their weddings to match their personalities, they hardly ever question the rituals they’ll be a part of. There are a few who are redefining their wedding rituals. Wedding rituals, which might bring some more sensible new thinking in society. This campaign celebrates these rare women.”

The #RedefiningRituals campaign will be extensively amplified on social media and digital mediums. The film of the campaign will be showcased on Platinum’s social media handles @platinumevara on Instagram and @PlatinumEvara on Facebook.
