Parle Marie sets mood for ‘Adda Baazi’ with Maharashtra-focused TVCs

The new localised campaign is part of the brand's regional marketing strategy.

Mumbai: Parle Products, one of India’s leading biscuits, snacks and confectionery manufacturers, has launched three new TVCs in Maharashtra for Parle Marie biscuit. This new localised campaign is part of the company's regional marketing strategy designed to drive engagement and build relationships with Parle. 

"By targeting multiple generations to showcase the true spirit of the local people and their cultures, Parle Products aims to achieve success in different regions with focused campaigns for customers," the company said in a statement.

The regional campaign “Jithe Story Thithay Parle Marie” resonates with the quintessential Maharashtrian experiences across generations and evokes the fun and frolic nature of ‘Adda Baazi’ (casual everyday gatherings).

The ad films are tailored to connect with the culture of Maharashtra, capturing everyday tete-a-tete in close-knit communities.

The first ad film depicting a mother and daughter bonding moment uses a play on a local Marathi proverb like ‘Gharogharimatichya Chuli’ and introduces a modern take ‘Gharoghari Fashionable Muli’ to bridge the gap between generations. The Matheran-based film showcases the traditional Marathi Powada (poetry) used for a modern-day proposal while the Anniversary film shows a lively discussion amongst women on their dream gift involving Narayanpethi, Nauvari, and Paithani sarees. The films beautifully marry the archetypal Maharashtrian stories to give them a modern twist.

Speaking about the campaign, Parle Products' senior category head Mayank Shah said, “Parle Products as a brand has its roots deeply embedded in cities and rural areas alike and as we grow in new regions, we want our communications to be reflective of the people’s traditions, way of life and the local spirit. Every Indian has their own way of jibing, bonding and internal-puns, which is very much coincidental to their way of living and culture. This campaign has been tailored keeping in mind the Maharashtrian way of life nuancing cultural codes and traditions of Maharashtra. This will make consumers relate and bond with the brand.”
