Simple message conveyed through a simplistic design.
• Difficult to convince audience that life is indeed OK.
• Positions positivity.
• Presence of Madhuri Dixit as “sutradhar” helps in relating
channels philosophy to the shows.
Asymmetric information : Rebranding Or New Launch?
Serials such as Geet Hui Sabse Parayi and Pyaar Kii Ye Ek
Kahaani were doing very well when they were closed.
• Fast and synchronized execution.
This campaign anyhow has drawn enough buzz.... if not positive
maybe negative... alot of viewers seem to be disappointed but
they are in fact TALKING about it.
Be it a rebranding or a Launch the message is conveyed and
Star One is erased from the viewers’ memories. The Bang on
communication has left nobody in a doubt. Everyone knows
that Star One is buried and Life OK is born. Seems like the
campaign is OK i.e All Correct !
