Eid is an occasion also called the “Festival of Breaking the Fast”. It is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan. It is synonymous with family & the joy of togetherness, not to mention the yearly Salman Khan starrer.
Take a look at some of the notable campaigns done by brands.
1. Ghadi Detergent : #SaareMaelDhoDaalo
With #SaareMaelDhoDaalo, Ghadi Detergent showcased a heartwarming episode of ingrained double standards of patriarchy through it’s video. In this short segment, while the mother is glad that her daughter has a husband who helps her with chores, she reprimands her son for doing the same. It’s a phenomena all too common in today’s society and rightfully targeted by Ghadi Detergent, and what better time than the holy occasion of Eid.
2. Tic Tac India
A quirky yet endearing animation on the beloved tic tac waiting for the moon to rise was enough for us to feature them on our list. Some creatives are best when kept short & sweet, just like Tic Tacs!
3. Almosafer – As far as we go
This touching Almosafer campaign narrates the tale of a young girl on a quest to visit Santa Claus during Ramadan. That’s a long way to travel indeed! The brand has attempted to forge a cultural connection between demographics that are miles apart through this campaign and it sure had us feeling multitudes of emotions!
A picture says a thousand words, rightfully so as one looks at this static creative by Autorounders, an autocare company, exemplifies a subtle yet intelligent stance on wishing its customers Eid Mubarak.

A truly captivating narrative complemented by the profound message it entails.
7. Max Fashion
This campaign by Max Fashion revolved around the rhetoric on how Hindu and Muslims can still come together to celebrate Eid as a festival irrespective of any differences. It showcased this important message by showing two families greeting each other on the occasion, dressed in similar attire and breaking bread together on the same table.
8. Bata #LetsWalkTogether
This captivating campaign by Bata showcases the bonds of affection between colleagues who work together. Throughout the video, colleagues try to hide food from the view of a fasting muslim employee during Eid and towards the end ask if they can join his family for dinner. A profound message indeed!
