Did you check out The Odyssey Ad on Vijay TV ? A feel good ad.
For starters Odyssey is an ultra-famous music & book shop at Adayar, just after the Madya Kailash junction and right next to Krishna Sweets. It was one of those hep book stores where chudihaar maamis come to buy dozens of kids books and carnatic music, as you stand there thinking if they really listen to all that. Being next to Krishna sweets, I would always visit Krishna Sweets after Odyssey to eat a suda suda nei poli served on a beetle nut leaf. That was a nostalgic rant.
BTW, the Odyssey ad on Vijay TV talks about the need of literature and music to escape from the mundane routines of life. It goes on to list down writers, musicians and movies for us to imagine a world without them. To quote a part of it, Ippadi Oru Vaazhvai Ninaithu Paarungal. Bhaarathi Illai, Sujatha Illai, Rahman illai and so on. I’m happy for two things here. Its an ad for a bookstore. Its also an interesting ad that might make people think about the importance of literature and music in life. Even if a handful of them visit the store watching this ad, its a success. Good Job.
