Brief shared with the agency – Dentsu Marcom
Entering a New Era in India, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI), the only two-wheeler company of Honda in India had announced its plans to aggressively expand its presence through India specific Brand Identity “Sach Kardenge Sapne” and various new launches at India’s largest automobile event Auto Expo 2012.
Honda’s new 100cc mass segment offering – ‘Dream Neo’ will be an extension to its product portfolio further in the 100-110cc mass segment.
As we delved into the life of the semi-urban, rural consumer, we found a man who was the anchor for his family even as he battled a plethora of daily challenges and changing landscapes. We also found a man who stood out for his confidence and assurance in himself. We wanted to bring alive this dimension and his persona in full glory – something that is lost in stereotypical narratives in competitive communication.
Rather than aspiring to be someone else, we decided to celebrate our protagonist as not just a star but a Superstar in his own life, in his own right.
DREAM NEO from Honda caters to the needs of the Indian mass model riders who now aspire for an expression of individual identity believing strongly in themselves as
“Apni Film ka Superstar”. They desire their dream bike to deliver best in class mileage having star features in a limited budget.
Film Descriptor (i.e. describing the film)
The film begins with protagonist saying, “Ye meri phillum hai aur iss phillum ka main Superstar hoon” We see him almost getting ready for his act. We see him donning the sun glasses, the jacket which says “Horn Ok Please”. We then see him riding on a bike through Chambal like rocky terrains. He goes on to say “Iss kahani main kayi saare villain hain, kabhi ye kabhi ye toh kabhi ye” And we see the villains in his life – “the kanjoos lala, the badnaam traffic and the zaalim raaste”
He then goes on to say that when he gets on his Dream Neo, the stellar features of the bike, help him feel on top of things so much so that all the villains in his life appear like small time rowdies who if he blew on them, they would fly away.
We see a testimony of this when he rides past the Kanjoos lala who’s vehicle is broken and the throttle of the Dream Neo makes his topi, umbrella etc fly away, much to the angst of the lala. Similarly we see him conquer the badnaam traffic and zaalim raaste.
In the end we meet the ‘Mrs Superstar’. She comes down to welcome him home. As he asks her “Phillum chale?” she replies saying, “Apni phillum itni achchi toh auron ki kyon dekhe?”
The film ends with the tagline “Dream Neo, Bano apne phillum ka superstar”
