Quote from Mr. Shubhodip Pal, Chief Marketing Officer, Micromax – “Micromax Unite 2 is developed and designed to overcome the fundamental problem of language barriers faced across India by giving them an option to choose from 21 languages to interact, engage, entertain and connect in their preferred language.  The TVC revolves around the core idea of  freedom of speech and sense of pride one gets from communicating in their own regional language. This campaign talks to the nation, to the country with different cultures, communities, rituals and languages. With the launch of the Micromax Unite 2, our aim is to enable vernacularization to serve the unique needs of Indian consumers across multiple markets creating a powerful medium for our consumers to interact, engage, entertain and connect in their preferred language.”

The advertising attempts to capture the pride that one must feel about the mother tongue and the sense of liberation that a familiar language can bring back.”
