Truth be told, it worked for some time. But due to the rise of internet and social media popularity; the consumer is alot more informed today and cheap tactics like that does not work anymore. Marketers realize that and they had to come up with some spectacular. The shortfilm ‘Bodle Jawar Golpo’ directed by Redwan Rony was a bold go at branded content. As they say, ‘luck favors the brave.’ And rightly so the film was a great hit and sales plummeted.
The drama has a combined thousands of views on YouTube. The drama features a very relevant life of a young man in his 20’s who is struggling to find his rightful voice. It’s a story that almost every young male in the country can connect to. Has a look:
The story was not very creative or out of the box or anything extraordinary. Wat it had in the short 18 minutes is a very connecting short story which can be related to the lives of the target audience and the product.
