Kollalo Videon

Kollalo Videon

        Now for you to understand the title of this blog, you should have grown up in Kerala in the early 1990s watching DD MalayalamJ. It was a time when Doordarshan was the only channel available and the number of brands from Kerala which used to advertise were really countable on your hands.

        ‘Kollalo videon’ was the catch line in an advertisement which featured Innocent, the comedian of Malayalam film industry.  He delivered it in his own humorous style. This has come to be used as a phrase now. It is used in situations when a person lists down the various uses of a particular product or a thing and  you want to approve of it, of course in a funny way J.
