Weekend Watch: Britannia milks its biscuits for a Pongal feast

Watch the commercial conceptualised by Lowe Lintas Bengaluru here

A child brings a large container to his mom asking for some milk. Suspecting that it's for the cat that is mewing in the background, the mother offers just a little milk.
 
The child marches out of the house. There are several children who join him, carrying containers of similar sizes. They are marching towards a field where an old man, probably a homeless man, is trying to cook his celebratory dish of sweet Pongal (made primarily of rice, milk and sugar), to mark the harvest festival of South India. 
 
The children start emptying the contents from their steel vessels into the earthern pot that is cooking the sweet Pongal. The parents have rationed their milk to such an extent that there is too little milk to do complete justice to the recipe. The child protagonist has the answer to overcome the milk shortage.
