All were eagerly waiting to see her once again onscreen after 14 years. Manju Warrier made her comeback through the Kalyan Jewellers Ad. Yesterday, the Ad featuring Manju Warrier and Amitabh Bachchan got released on YouTube and later on, all channels had the much hyped Ad telecast. But sorry to say Manju Warrier disappoints!
The theme of the present Ad itself seems to be not that
interesting and lacks a punch. It has the story about a father and
daughter relationship, played by Manju and Amitabh, respectively.
They were very good friends and both loved adventures. But in the
midst, the daughter falls in love with a guy. The father does not
approve this relation and the daughter is forced to leave her
father and goes away with her lover.
The story does not end here. Both father and daughter happen to meet in temple, hotel, bus station, etc. The daughter wanted to talk to her father and say a sorry, but he does not even bother to give her a look. One midnight, father gets the call from his daughter. She was crying on the other side due to labour pain. Without even thinking about his grudge towards his daughter, the father rushes to her and takes her to the hospital. When the doctors asks about his relation to the patient, he proudly says it's his daughter, which finally makes her happy.
At last she gives birth to a baby girl. By this time her husband had also reached the hospital. Both husband and wife are happy. In between the talks her husband asks about her father's return and the daughter says, "I was very much confident that my father would come back to me," and the story ends with the brand's tagline 'Vishvasam Athalle Ellam'.
Now, what the story intend to say about the brand 'Kalyan Jewellers' is yet to be found out!
