Consumer food company LT Foods’ flagship brand Daawat has launched a new campaign to extend its ‘Banega Toh Farq Dikhega’ proposition. The campaign extends the proposition by showcasing to the consumers the finely curated four-step process of chunkar, bachakar, sambhaalkar and sajaakar, (fine picking, carefully securing, meticulous ageing, and proud presentation) before Daawat Basmati reaches the consumer. The meticulous quality processes that LT Foods employ makes Daawat stand out in its category.
The campaign narrative unfolds with the quintessential wit and quirk of Paresh Rawal, as Hussain Dalal’s character adds to the humour to make the campaign even more clutter-breaking. The campaign has been launched with a film, which captures the banter between a seasoned Daawat food inspector played by Paresh Rawal and his immature protégé, Hussain Dalal of the recent Toofan fame. The interaction happens during the process of creating the finest Basmati.
Ashwani Kumar Arora, Managing Director and CEO, LT Foods Limited, said, "Consumers today exhibit a high degree of discernibility and consciousness in their consumption choices. The new campaign of Daawat by LT Foods not only extends the proposition of ‘Banega Toh Farq Dikhega’ but also showcases the special care and effort the company takes through a four-stage curation process of chunkar, bachakar, sambhaalkar, and sajaakar (fine picking, carefully securing, meticulous ageing, and proud presentation).”
Ritesh Arora, CEO India and Far East Business, said, “The brand communication over the years has evolved keeping pace with the changing consumer aspirations and tastes. The extension of Banega Toh Farq Dikhega campaign demonstrates the consistent effort taken by the company to curate the best in category product.”
The film opens on a shot of the paddy Mandi where Hussain while walking towards Paresh Rawal, who is inspecting the paddy and choosing the finest from a heap intently, shows off to a transport coordinator, who was passing by “Tujhe pata hai itni bareeki se chunn kar banta hai Daawat” (Did you know Daawat is made with such precise selection). He is reprimanded by Paresh Rawal immediately, who tells him “Abhi nahi bana hai” (Daawat is not yet ready). The film then goes on with Paresh Rawal taking Hussain through the special process of selection, carefully securing to avoid breakage, ageing for aroma and taste, before beautiful packaging for presentation. Hussain goes hysterical with excitement and at the end doubtfully asks Paresh, “…Abhi nai bana na?” (Still not ready, right?) Paresh replies with a mischievous smile, “Janaab, Ab ban gaya hai Daawat” (Sir, now Daawat is finally ready). The film closes with Paresh serving biryani made from Daawat Basmati to Hussain, who enjoys every mouthful. Then, we cut to a range shot of Daawat rice packs with voice over reinforcing the proposition of ‘Banega Toh Farq Dikhega', a product of LT Foods that nurtures goodness.
This is a simple story about a complex process told in an interesting, humorous way. The campaign will be launched pan India across major TV channels, digital, social media, and OTT platforms.
