Looks beautiful but don't understand it.

Kolam is a form of painting that is drawn using rice powder in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and most parts of Kerala and some parts of Goa, Maharashtra, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and a few other Asian countries. A Kolam is a geometrical line drawing composed of curved loops, drawn around a grid pattern of dots.

It doesn't look like it was made of rice powder.

The visual is interesting, but I feel the benefit should be emphasized. The use of the word "Celebrate" doesn't connect well with the mellow colors and visuals.

A small input to the idea behind this ad: As said by Ivan the kolam is made of grids of dots. This somehow draws a parallel with the product which has also has dots. Also if you see clearly the kolam shown in the ads portray a couple who is making love.
