There’s no getting away from the cheesy soundtrack and 1980s-style voiceover (not to mention the irritating script), but here’s HAL’s corporate film. I don’t know how new this is, but I just discovered it for myself on their website. It’s got footage of all their products and facilities. Will never be able to figure out why sarkari organisations love drenching their videos with loud idiotic music that doesn’t allow the footage to breathe. There is not a single second — not one — of the natural sound of turbofans and rotors, which may have been the saving grace of an otherwise Doordarshan-level ad film.
