A R Rehman’s Old Ad Jingle – Leo Coffee, Titan Watches & Garden Sarees – Pure Brillance

Before coming to film music direction, AR Rehman has composed a number of wonderful jingles for various old advertisements. I have heard these jingles and I was familiar with all these three ads, but I didn’t know that there was a common thread behind all of them – A R Rehman!

Leo Coffee Ad:

I have this tune as my ring tone. Its a good solution to the automated spam calls I get from my cell phone operator – Now, I get to listen to this jingle every time a spam call comes! It seems it was this tune that inspired Mani Rathnam to try A R Rehman for his first movie – Roja. This ad also has a very young Aravind Swamy.

Titan Watches Ad:

Who could forget this Titan Watches ad? It was popular all over the country! It seems the instrumental was adapted from Mozart’s 25th Symphony. The whole ad adds such a festive mood! I loved it back then!

Garden Sarees:

I am sure many of us remember this ad as well. The voice over was given by Kavita Krishnamurthy it seems. The beats and the voice were so refreshing, back then!
