The campaign are deeply based on Indian mythology. The Kauravas (evil side) has won Draupadi (the femele in the left) in the game of Dice with Pandavas (the good side). Draupadi is the wife the Pandavas. Draupadi has ones insulted the Kauravs in front of the everyone. So it the the revenue time for the Kauravas after winning Dropadi they are about to unwrap her saree (the costume) in front of everyone. This incident is called Dropadi vastraharan. But in the ad it is shown just the opposite, where in Dropadi is enjoying the Vastraharan of the Kauravas king.

India has a male dominated mythology, The entire campaign carries the idea of reversing this concept of male domination to female.

If you want to know the part of this mythology in detail here the link. This is just one chapter of the epic called Mahabharata.

even those who know these stories would find it difficult to put it in the right context, too far stretched, i would say. Also you don't speak with your lips, you speak with your tongue.
