MUMBAI: The festive season of Diwali is a huge consumption occasion for any retailer, and with 220+ stores across India, it is of utmost importance to Big Bazaar. Historically, Big Bazaar has seen an increase in sales during the festive period across categories – fashion, food, home, electronics, to name a few, and the brand recognises that the opportunity to grow further is immense.

Big Bazaar’s ongoing campaign, ‘Har Tyohaar Mein Big Bazaar’ aims at reinforcing the brand’s understanding of India, her festivals and the nuances with which different groups across the country celebrate different festivals, such that it makes Big Bazaar a preferred destination for all festive needs/shopping.

As an extension of the campaign, the brand’s latest film celebrated the very essence of family and togetherness that forms the fabric of any Indian festival and brings to life the meaning of the true spirit of Diwali.

The warm, cinematic narration takes us through the journey of Jatin, a passenger in a delayed train who decides to not let the situation get the better of him. Instead, he strikes up a conversation with his fellow traveler to break the somber mood and offers him sweets from Big Bazaar. His little gesture sparks a chain reaction, with other passengers joining in and celebrating Diwali in the train itself, like one big family.

Penned by Rahul Mathew and his team, the lyrics of the background score resonate with the festive spirit of Diwali and the music, composed by Indian music producer, Sameeruddin, encompasses every mood in the film.

Apart from the film, the campaign consisted of a print, digital, radio and outdoor leg too.

Big Bazaar chief marketing officer Jishnu Sen says, “We at Big Bazaar believe that festivals; all of them are an intrinsic part of Indian life. So we celebrate all of them under one common thought of Har Tyohaar mein Big Bazaar. Diwali is yet another festival that’s important. We built a campaign on two truths. The first that a simple act of sharing a sweet and saying ‘Happy Diwali’ can bring untold joy. The second truth is that unfortunately, some people are not with family on Diwali. When you marry these two thoughts you get a magical tale of how a train full of lonely strangers transforms into a celebration of festive cheer.”

DDB Mudra group executive creative director Iraj Fraz adds, “The film celebrates the essence of togetherness during India’s biggest festival. It’s only the spirit of Diwali that can turn a train full of sullen strangers into one big family revealing in the festivities.”
