On eve of the holy month of Ramzan, Big Bazaar and DDB Mudra West have etched a warm and compassionate campaign ‘Neki Mubaarak’ (Best wishes of goodness), which stays true to the brand’s promise of making India beautiful.


The ad film features the star cast comprising of Sayani Gupta (of Margarita with a Straw fame) and veteran actress Archana Puran Singh.


Sayani Gupta plays the role of a medical practitioner named Heena Qureshi and Archana Puran Singh plays the role of a mid-aged lady from a North Indian family. Set in the background of a small town hospital during Ramzan, the North Indian family seeks urgent medical attention for their young expecting female member. Here, Heena who works at the same hospital, steps up to the occasion and chooses her duty over her need for food, after the day’s long fasting. Witnessing this dedication is the mid-aged lady (played by Archana).


The next day, Heena comes for her rounds in the ward. Appreciating Heena’s gesture from the day before, the mid-aged lady and her family arrange a food spread for Heena and request her to break her fast for the day with them. Heena obliges; while eating, she enquires about the baby’s name and the mid-aged lady expresses, “Heena.” Heena’s dedication towards her duty and the family’s sense of gratitude help them rise over their differences of religion and culture barriers, becoming one.


The ad film pulls a slice from the viewer’s life and celebrates the goodness present in each one of us. This multimedia campaign is being led by the ad film and is being amplified by print, OOH, digital, on-ground and in-store & radio activations.


This campaign comes as an extension to Big Bazaar’s ongoing ‘Shubh Shuruaat’ campaign and attempts to touch it’s consumers with ‘Neki Mubaarak’. The campaign further reinforces the brand’s inclusive nature and amplifies their commitment of celebrating the moments dearest to all the customers.


Quoting on the campaign, Rahul Mathew, Creative Head, DDB Mudra West said, “Festivals are actually a celebration of values, but today many of them have just become celebrations. Big Bazaar wanted to use the occasion of Ramzan to celebrate the values that it stands for. Because it’s these values that’ll truly help in ‘Making India Beautiful”.”


Speaking about the campaign, Sonal Dabral, Chairman & Chief Creative Officer, DDB Mudra Group said “Ramzan is a month of doing ‘neki’ and performing good deeds is at the heart of this festival. In keeping with its theme of ‘Making India Beautiful’ Big Bazaar decided to celebrate this spirit of Ramzan through a beautiful story about ‘goodness’. We are excited about this campaign and we hope in its own little way it will promote the spirit of ‘neki’ this Ramzan.”
