Luminous Power Technologies, one of the leading and trustworthy brands in the power backup, home electrical and residential solar space, today announced its latest range of designer Energy Efficient fans through a series of TVCs featuring its brand ambassador- Sachin Tendulkar. Through this campaign, Luminous intends to draw attention to its different categories of fans under the new range, in a striking and quirky way.
The TVCs highlight ways people try to ward off evil eye from the things they love, value and find beautiful, just to protect them. Developed and conceptualised by 82.5 Communications, the campaign aims to capture the cultural insight of protecting things of value and beauty from an evil eye. From hanging lemons to putting a ‘kaala teeka’, the films showcase the beauty of the fans and how their new owners are trying to protect them from the ‘nazar’ of others.
Starting April 15, the 20-second TVCs will be aired on prominent TV channels and shows. The campaign will be leveraged on the brands social media handles. It will also be promoted on all Luminous’ social media platforms i.e.- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
