2020, a year that will go down in history! 2020, a year that showcased life’s uncertainty! A year of exploration, where we learnt a new skill or picked up a new hobby. Even the might of 2020 couldn’t stop the young India from immersing into new experiences of living their present to the fullest. Embracing this energetic and aspirational mindset, &pictures’ is powering on to a brand-new experience with its refreshed brand ideology ‘On Nahi, Full On’.
Built on the insight that ‘In a world that uncertain, why stop myself from immersing fully in what I do’, &pictures’ new brand philosophy of ‘On Nahi, Full On’, ignites a spark of aspiration amongst the young and breathless to take charge and maximize every moment without slowing down.
Since, its launch in 2013, &pictures has been catering to an audience with a youthful mindset with an array of content and characters that reflects their life choices and beliefs. Retaining its progressive yet rooted brand DNA, the all new &pictures has levelled up its energetic and quirky vibe that promises to leave viewers refreshed with a full-on experience.
Ruchir Tiwari, Business Head, Zee Hindi Movies Cluster, said, “Over the past 7 years, &pictures has carved a niche for itself by offering content that reflects the belief of the young and aspirational India. &pictures now has the highest skew amongst the young audience i.e. 13-21 years NCCS A in the Hindi Movie category.
“The brand proposition ‘On Nahi, Full On’ is an energetic and fun-loving mindset that embraces the beliefs of this distinct viewer set. Creating an immersive experience for our viewers, we have created refreshing content blocks with ‘blockbuster premieres’, ‘Full on Dynamites’ that celebrates Gen Z of Bollywood‘, 2pm ‘Full on Time-out’ slot, Hollywood movies back to back with ‘Full on Hollywood’, and many more.
“Foraying into original content with ‘Footfairy’, a TV first initiative is a testament of our commitment to offer enthralling content to complement the viewers evolving consumption patterns. Through this re-energized experience, &pictures aims to cement our positioning in the minds of our consumers,” Tiwari said.
Prathyusha Agarwal, Chief Consumer Officer, ZEEL, said, “While the unpredictable 2020 threw tons of challenges at us, we dealt with it in our own extraordinary way by making every opportunity count. Pegged on this premise, ‘On Nahi, Full On’, gives the dynamic young generation, a cue to maximize every moment without slowing down.
“And, we are bringing alive this Full-On ideology through the visual mnemonic of a ‘power on button’ and the ‘&pictures shorties’ our brand films that draws a connect between the consumers world and the role of &pictures to amplify life.”
“Consumers ‘choice’ is driven by what’s being aired on the channel but through our groundwork we know that brands image and perception also impact these choices. We tested 2 concepts with consumers, to help us learn their understanding and resonance, that led us to the winning concept – ‘On Nahi, Full On’. The rebooted brand philosophy could be a game changer in moving &pictures from the ‘known and listed’ basket to the ‘my consideration set’ amongst the audience,” Agarwal added.
The content strategy of the new &pictures has been designed keeping the new age sensibilities in mind to strengthen its bond with its core viewers. And, at the same time to engage and bring in new viewers. With ‘On Nahi, Full On’, &pictures promises to make the viewing experience richer and immersive with a pumped library focusing on 3 tenants i.e. Full on blockbuster premieres like Good Newwz, Dabangg 3, Kaali Peeli and Gunjan Saxena.
