MUMBAI: Online healthcare platform, Medlife, is bolstering its marketing and communication efforts with a new campaign, ‘Lafaddu Lal’.

The campaign aims to showcase the ease, comfort and convenience of ordering medicines online. Medlife’s unique features like monthly subscription for medicines are also presented in a light-hearted way. Through this campaign, Medlife continues to build on the brand promise of being ‘obsessed with health’, urging people to explore the convenience of an e-pharmacy or risk being labeled ‘Lafaddu Lal’!

Medlife’s unique offerings include a 48-hour delivery promise with an assurance of ‘100% Genuine Medicines’. It also offers assured savings on medicines every time a person places an order on the app. It also has a subscription feature through which, consumers with a chronic illness can get their monthly refills on-time without the hassle of running around the pharmacies.

This 360o campaign, conceived by Soho Square, Bengaluru, features actors Boman Irani and Varun Sharma as a comical father-son duo. Boman plays a father who is particular about his medication and Varun as his ‘Lafaddu’ son who keeps forgetting to order his dad’s medicines from Medlife.

These humorous films are supported through print and outdoor mediums as well. They show the father-son duo in different scenarios to bring out various benefits and offerings, available on the Medlife app.

Medlife International CEO Tushar Kumar says, “Both Boman and Varun bring in a dash of freshness to the brand and stand for everything that clearly defines the attributes of Medlife viz. New-age, energetic, cheerful, aspirational, innovative and consistent. We are really kicked up about this association and hope the journey ahead is going to be furthermore exciting.”

Soho Square India chairman and chief creative officer Sumanto Chattopadhyay summarises the series of films as a chuckle-inducing campaign featuring a slightly sarcastic father and his bumbling son, help us deliver Medlife's message in a memorable way.

The consumer looks for availability, price and convenience and that’s what our film communicates in a light-hearted manner. Sarcasm and carelessness between a father and son is a very relatable behavior in the Indian context. Lafaddu Lal is the creative idea that binds the relationship. And, who better than Boman and Varun to play the characters!”

The new ad campaign will be launched on the digital platform at the onset, followed by a strategic media plan for television, outdoor and print, to get the desired impact.
