Debrief: Titan Raga: Great attitude

24 Jan,2012

Titan Raga has released a new commercial with brand ambassador Katrina Kaif. And it strikes the right balance between attitude, lifestyle and product.

 

In the commercial, Katrina appears all set to go off on a journey, but her plans get scuttled by a sudden text message, apparently from her boyfriend, saying: “My flight’s cancelled, let’s postpone our trip.” (Incidentally, this isn’t Salman Khan’s message, and I say that for one significant reason: Bhai cannot craft one English word without glaring typos.) Disappointed, but only for a moment, the sprightly actress decides to carry on with the journey. She grabs her Titan Raga, and invites her mom to join her. Both zip off in a car, grooving to a cool track.

Nice commercial. Highlights the ‘Life is now’, never-say-die spirit of young urban India. Katrina looks glam and the situation is endearing. Mother and daughter living it up together warms the heart. And there’s just enough branding in the film, it’s there but it’s not in your face. Simple idea, zippy execution. Good show.

 

Just one small gripe: Did Kats have to ask her mom out ONLY because her partner let her down? Couldn’t she have done it anyway? Wouldn’t that have been cooler? But, no matter. It still works.

 

Rating: (On a scale of 1 to 5): 3. Brand and attitude nicely matched.
