Really really great video. The United States should learn from GP advertisements :P ....I mean, youd think the country "Hollywood" is based in would do better with commercials.....

Beautiful, thank you for posting that, obviously created by a slick advertising team and paid for by a large corporation but it still brought a tear to my eye.

The "dehattobodhok ad" recently that is being shown nowadays is simply "AMMMAAZZIINNG". The one posted above, the "ekushe feb ad" a few others add brings tears to your eyes. We have come a LOONGG way from the "heno heno lux type" commercial to producing what I think is one of the best quality ads.

The Idea of this Video is great but the music here seems to me more Indianization. We definitely need a Habib song here.. /:)

Thanks for upload , it's nice to watch but didn't like it .

Very poor direction & very cheap thought to make it .

Spirit Of Bangladesh is awesome .

ah yeah ok and Habib's music isn't Indianized! :timeout:

Ppl say he has AR rahman touch to him... and the obvious reason is he steals from rahman.. LOL

outswinger what didn't you like about it? I think you been outside for too long.. the ad captures childhood to adulthood in Bangladesh from all social strata in 2 mins. I think it's brilliant....

My favorite part was that kid in boat backflipping to catch the ball....you could come up with a new water sport from that concept alone....

Exactly, I think we are taking this anti-India thing way too far.

What about Band Music? When people use guitars in Bangla music? Isn't that westernization? What about when we use urdu and hindi words in Bangla? In fact, you can't even speak a Bangla sentence without using at least one word from another language.

No culture can develop or exist in isolation, we all give and take from each other, people need to realize this. I would much rather have Indianization than Americanization, at least we share culture and history that goes back thousands of years.

As for the ad itself, I think it's brilliant in not only its editing but also its inclusiveness, I can't think that of any group that was left behind, from my count:

Boys,
Girls,
Men,
Women,
Upper, middle and working class
Urbanites,
Villagers,
Cricket Professionals,
Non-professionals
Video-gamers :)
Footballers! (brilliant touch)
Indigenous people
Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Christians (my favourite part of the video, including the teacher part)

I have a hard time figuring out who was left out! Another thing I like about this ad is that Grameenphone was very discreet about mentioning in the ad itself that they are the sponsors, you see it just for a second on the side of the bus, a stark contrast to the Indian Pepsi ads during Champions Trophy (the crass Blue Billion ones), where the obtrusiveness of the sponsors detracted from the beauty of the commercial itself.

Overall, fantastic commercial, the best ever I have seen from Bangladesh, and it really shows how far we have come in terms of both technology as well as creativity. Every time I have watched it I think I shed a tear, I can't think of the last thing that made me do that.

A (very) rough translation of the song by yours truly for those who don't speak Bangla with the relevant scenes, (of course, it sounds awkward in English)

(Scene: River scene with children cutting tree branch)
Dreams beat everywhere
the drums beat
in millions of people
who celebrate

(Scene: Girl playing cricket on roof)
A fire greater than
13 Mays in 12 months
trumpets victory
in the red and green flag (? not sure about this part)

(Scene: Boy on Boat)
Go go go go Bangladesh
setting aside all differences
darkness and obstacles
to a new place

(Scene:Teenage boys playing cricket)
We dream tonight to the
rhythm of a new song

(Scene: Woman opening closet to find bats)
We forget all our sorrows
and ask for only one thing
in our hearts
that the wild wind will ripple
the red and green flag

Chorus (a million people celebrate)

(Scene: A variety of people praying)
A tide of new light
is coming to help draw
many new images
the Red and Green flag
flying high

Its probably running on all channels in BD. But nTV is still not up 100%, so only way to get it in US is by Channel-I.
