If now we look at these Doordarshan ads, it may not appear top quality, but that was the era when things were so different, right from the way those models acted, photography, cinematography, background music, Amin Sayani style dialogue throwing. That was the magic of that era, when advertisements were slotted prior to the start of the programs like Chitrahar (collection of weekly Bollywood songs), Sunday movie or soaps at 9.
