Around the festive season of Diwali, Eicher Trucks & Buses have an important message to share. This message is conveyed in the subtlest way possible via their new short film – Yaaron Ki Diwali.
This new short movie, conceptualized and produced by Spotlights and Speaking Pictures, addresses road safety and safe driving during the festive season when there is a sharp rise in the number of people travelling along with their families.
Starring Rajesh Sharma in the lead as Babbu, the 5-mins video showcases the life of truck drivers who toil hard under extreme conditions and spend most of their time on roads even during the festive season.
The film showcases in a dramatic narrative how fellow drivers prevent a drunk driver venturing out thereby preventing drunk driving. The video resonates the strong connect with driver empowerment and respect for the community.
The video also hits at drunk driving and connects well with the truck driver fraternity. You can watch the video below.
Internal research conducted by Eicher Trucks & Buses shows that music and videos are the best platform to connect with drivers, considering most drivers on long hauls use their smart phones for entertainment. This aspect has been captured well in the video wherein; the fellow truck drivers engages with Babbu (Rajesh Sharma) on music transfer from his phone and asks him to narrate ghost stories, to sing his favorite Rafi and Kishore songs.
Speaking on the ‘Yaaron Ki Diwali’ campaign, P Ravishankar, EVP, Sales, Marketing & Aftermarket – VE Commercial Vehicles said, “Eicher Trucks and Buses is the leading brand of commercial vehicles from VE Commercial Vehicles and a driving force behind the modernization of the commercial vehicle industry in India.
