Is this patriotism enough?

This ad was made to imbibe a feeling of patriotism in Indians.
The creates a wonderful picture of a busy Indian city in the evening. (People eating panipuri at roadside stalls, shoe polishing children etc.) A old man tunes the radio and the national anthem plays. The old man even though crippled stands to show his respect. Some children also follow his action. Finally you have Amitabh Bachchan preaching about patriotism.
This ad even won an award.

Everything said and done, the question that arises is "Why did Amitabh speak in English?" He should have used Hindi as it is our national language.
Secondly, is this ad enough to inject the feeling of patriotism?
Also I havent seen this ad many times on TV. How can the ad's messege be conveyed without publicising it? How many people would actually consider it?
If ads could really induce feelings then they should be made better. This ad is for Indians, so it has to be in Hindi. Frankly speaking most of them wouldn't even stand when watching this video. Even I didn't for the first time.

My final verdict: India is picturised very well in the ad but it is not enough for increasing your patriotism.

Please do comment.
Thanks & Regards

(Re)Making of An Ad

Finally Vodafone has come back to the Hutch theme again but with minor changes. Yes, I am talking of the latest ad from Vodafone which is on the similar lines of Hutch ad before Vodafone took over. Pug(Hutch dog) along with a boy made the Hutch brand popular, though their network is not like what they claim(wherver you go our network follows, former hutch punch line). With Vodafone, it is no different. Frequent network busy messages whenever you try a call is common with Vodafone too. But the disappointing aspect of the brand Vodafone was to dump the pug, which apparently had made the price of pugs raise in India when Hutch used it for its ad. With crazy cartoons replacing the Hutch pug, Vodafone brand was going nowhere. Now they are back with new ad - the same pug but this time with a girl with pug following the girl wherever she goes.
And the theme song is changed to 'Everyday I want to fly', which is soothing too like the former. You might remember the old Hutch song 'You and I, in this beautiful world'. All in all, this new ad is one of greatest, but only if Vodafone's network was as good as their ads!
