Warning: If you grew up in the 1980’s or 90’s these ads may make you feel nostalgic.

A couple of decades back, Indian Ad space wasn’t cluttered. It was the beginning of a new era. Advertisements created then, resulted iconic response and recall.

Just out of the top of my head, these are the few ads I can recall:

1. Cadbury

2. Dhara jalebi

3. Wah taj: Taj Mahal Tea

4. Titan: jingle composed by AR Rehman

5. Bajaj

6. Pan parag

7. Lifeboy: aired in 1992

8. Nirma: doodh si safedi…

9. Zandu balm

10. Asian Paints: Waah sunil babu

11. Fevicol

Another one

12. Rasna

13. Ujala Supreme: aaya naya ujala

14. Luna: Chal meri luna

15. Mirindaaa: Something similar aired in India.

16. Onida: devil

17. Saridon: Sirf ek saridon aur sar dard se aaram..

18. Vicks: gale mein khich khich

19. Vicco

20. Liril: This was aired in 1985. It’s unbelievable!!

This is Preity Zinta;s Liril ad of 1997. Thi one’s cute.. but the previous one was way before its time.. Liril sales must have shot through the roof.
