As we welcomed a new decade with 2020, little did anyone know that a pandemic named Coronavirus would envelop the world with fear and scare. Within just three months into the new year, the economies of developed and underdeveloped countries began to crash down due to lockdown to curb the impact of the deadly COVID-19. While people are now confined to their homes, Indians got a pleasant surprise when the popular channel Doordarshan decided to re-launch iconic shows like Ramayan and Mahabharat. For the audience at home, these re-runs became a source of entertainment and have taken us all down the memory lane. In addition to this, on public demand, the renowned brand Amul made us all nostalgic by sharing their television commercials aired during the original telecast of Ramayan and Mahabharat.
Amul, on Sunday, on their Instagram account, shared commercials of not just butter, but Shrikhand, Chocolate and many other products. With each tagline and catchphrase highly memorable, the team behind the brand surely brought a smile on each face. So, as you catch up on Ramayan and Mahabharat, sit back and watch these beautiful ads once again on social media.

The commercials, sans any heavy visual effects, summed up our whole childhood. It won't be wrong to say that Amul became synonymous with the 'Utterly Butterly Delicious' phrase.

Much before foreign brands were a rage amongst youngsters, Amul Chocolate was the go-to option for affordable and mouth-watering chocolates. Delicious and just perfect for all occasions, the co-operative company touched hearts by reiterating the fact that chocolates aren't just for children but adults can savour without guilt. Amongst several ads, one featured late Neerja Bhanot who sacrificed her life to save passengers on Pan Am Flight 73 which had been hijacked by terrorists during a stopover in Karachi on September 5, 1986.
