New Delhi: Tanishq, India’s most loved and trusted jewelry brand has launched its latest digital film on Raksha Bandhan which celebrates the beautiful bond of a sister and her sister-in-law. The film showcases how their relationship is much more evolved than just being sisters-in-law and rather being #SistersByChoice. The tradition of ‘LumbaRakhi’on Raksha Bandhan symbolizes this pure bond of love, care, and nurture-a tradition where the sister ties the LumbaRakhi to her sister-in-law as well for, it is believed that it is not just the brother but the sister-in-law too, who is responsible for the sister’s protection and together they form a protective cocoon around the sister.
The heart-warming digital film conceptualized by Tanishq and Webchutney, poignantly portrays how the relationship between the sister and sister-in-law strengthens and becomes even more endearing over time. Through this film, Tanishq celebrates a relationship that has an underlying promise of protection, love, and care. Despite all the unsolicited advice and the myths around sister-in-law’s relationship, this film captures the playful and rather easy-going relationship of a sister and her sister-in-law which strikes an emotional chord.
LumbaRakhi is a symbol of this relationship where they are sisters-in-choice rather than just sisters-in-law. The film beautifully captures the changing dynamics of their relationship from when the sister-in-law becomes a part of their family and how it coheres into a sweet, nurturing, and protective bond akin to how it is between two sisters. For the husband’s sister, her sister-in-law is not just her brother’s life partner but also her own partner-in-crime. Thus with a different take on relationships and the festivity, the film exudes warmth and genuine emotions around this sweet celebration of Lumba rakhi on Raksha Bandhan.
Speaking about the campaign, Ranjani Krishnaswamy, GM – Marketing, Tanishq, Titan Company Ltd, said, “Raksha Bandhan has always been a beautiful occasion to celebrate diverse relationships, their special bonds and reinforce the promise of taking care of someone – and that needn’t be just a brother-sister equation.
#SistersByChoice is our humble attempt to showcase and celebrate the unique tradition of LumbaRakhi capturing a loving banter between a sister and her sister-in-law that spreads happiness and positivity. With our latest campaign, we hope to celebrate the underlying promise & emotion around Raksha Bandhan which is all about love & care.”
Quoting the film, the Strategy X Creative duo from DentsuWebchutney, Shambhavi Ramanathan & Binaifer Dulani said, “Women uplifting women is the underlying theme of our times. We’re elated to add a new dimension to the Rakshabandhan conversation by shining the spotlight on progressive womanhood. We’ve challenged the baggage around the dynamic shared by sisters-in-law, and portrayed a newer and more nuanced narrative with #SistersByChoice.”
