The launch of the Reliance Jio 4G SIM has sent rumbles in the mobile network market, scaring competitors and exciting customers. Internet trolls, in the meantime, have found one more viral party to gatecrash.
Don’t know what Jio is all about? The incomparable T Rajendar will explain it to you:
Besides Rajendar, the clip also hilariously adapts scenes from hits like “Naanum Rowdy Dhaan”.
Most of the memes have Ambani’s Reliance completely destroying the other networks. This scene from "Mirchi" has Mukesh Ambani's face morphed on to Prabhas in fight mode.
And this one shows Bala Krishna from "Legend", representing Jio, and hitting all the other networks with a single spear!
If meme season is here, can Captain be far behind?
Vijaykanth (to wife): I hear that Ambani is into astrology (josiyam) these days?
Prematha: Aiyo! That is not josiyam, it’s Jio SIM!
And, of course, the inevitable question for Tamil fans – Is Jio a truly original product or did Rajinikanth already discover it?
And since we’re talking about Tamil comedy, a woman character seducing men seems inevitable. Not so funny anymore, but read with the labels it seems to be a fairly accurate reading of what’s happening!
Not everyone needs Jio though.
Arvind Swamy as Siddharth Abhimanyu in “Thani Oruvan”: Only people who use data packs will be surprised by Jio. I’m the sort who lives his whole life with WiFi.
For now, Jio seems to be the boss.
But fans of BSNL are hoping it will all turn out differently. This clip from Malayalam film “Style” has Unni Mukundan playing the role of BSNL and destroying Jio!
