  6. 6. Introduction AdvertisingAdvertising is a paid, public, non-personal announcement of a persuasive message byan identified sponsor; the non-personal form of promotion that is delivered throughselected media outlets that, under most circumstances, by a firm of its products to itsexisting and potential customers.Commercial advertisers often seek to generate increased consumption oftheir products or services through "branding," which involves the repetition of animage or product name in an effort to associate certain qualities with the brand in theminds of consumers. Non-commercial advertisers who spend money to advertiseitems other than a consumer product or service include political parties, interestgroups, religious organizations and governmental agencies. Non-profitorganizations may rely on free modes of persuasion, such as a public serviceannouncement (PSA).Modern advertising developed with the rise of mass production in the late 19th andearly 20th centuries.In 2010, spending on advertising was estimated at $142.5 billion in the United Statesand $467 billion worldwide. 6
  7. 7. Article on India Advertising IndustryIndian ad industry to grow 9pc in 2012: Pitch Madison Ad OutlookThe Pitch Madison Media Advertising Outlook 2012 was presented on February 17 inthe presence of an august gathering of marketing, advertising and media industryleaders.The outlook was that of ―cautious optimism‖, as Sam Balsara, Chairman and MD,Madison World, emphasised.In the year 2011, the total pie of the Indian advertising industry stood at Rs 25,594crore, recording a growth of 8 per cent. The figure was far below the earlier projectionof 17 per cent as the Indian economy was faced with yet another churn, an inflationthat touched 10 and weakening of the Rupee against the dollar.As per the Pitch Madison Media Ad Outlook, the growth projections for the adindustry for 2012 remained a cautious 8-9 per cent, with a total ad pie of Rs 28,013crore.In his welcome address, AnnuragBatra, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief,exchange4media Group, informed that magazine estimates in the Ad Outlook wouldbe revised. The Association of Indian Magazines (AIM), Madison World andmagazine publishers would work together on the magazine estimates. Speaking on thefindings of the report, he said that the numbers were ―cautious‖ and there was more ofa ―protectionist approach‖.AmitAgnihotri, Co-Founder, exchange4media Group and Editor, Pitch Magazine,took the audience through how the Pitch Madison Media Advertising Outlook(PMMAO) had developed over the years, since the first edition on 2003. He said thatthe partner for the first Ad Outlook was GroupM, and every year after that MadisonWorld had been the partner for the Ad Outlook.He further said that over the years people had come to believe in the PMMAOnumbers. ―True, the numbers were sometimes pessimistic, but they have always beenrealistic,‖ he stressed. He remarked that in 2003, when the first Ad Outlook wasbrought out, the total ad pie stood at Rs 9,300 crore, which had grown to Rs 25,594crore in 2011, a CAGR growth of 15 per cent. However, a modest growth of 8-9 percent was projected for the industry in 2012.Delivering the keynote address, Sam Balsara, Chairman and MD, Madison World,remarked that when the report was filed in October 2011, there was more optimism inthe economy. However, the last five months had not been so good. The Indian adindustry grew a mere 8 per cent in 2011 over 2010. This figure, according to him, wasrather low in the Indian content.―This is the lowest growth rate in a decade, except for 2009, when there was negativegrowth,‖ Balsara remarked. He further said that the numbers did not includeclassified, tender and appointment ads in print. Internet search numbers were also notincluded in the Ad Outlook. 7
  8. 8. Giving a breakdown of the ad share of different media in the Indian advertising pie, hesaid that television continued to dominate with a share of 44.8 per cent, followedclosely by print with a share of 42.2 per cent. The growth of Internet‘s share had beenthe most impressive, claiming the third largest share of the ad pie at 3.8 per cent.Radio saw a flat growth of 3.1 per cent share of the ad pie, on the other hand, outdoordie better with a 5.1 per cent share. Cinema slid a few notches with a share of 0.5 percent. According to Balsara, the report projected that Internet would become a 5 percent media.Based on the projections, he urged the advertisers not to under-invest in advertisingand stressed on the use of multi-media for advertising. He further asked the advertisersto dig deep and narrow cast, instead of casting wide. According to him, tent poleproperties would become expensive.Doing a more detailed analysis of the Pitch Madison Media Ad Outlook,PunithaArumugam, CEO, Madison Media Group, called television the Mr Reliablemedia, while print was Mr Survivor. Noting that the role of radio in advertising todaywas tactical and not strategic, she called the medium Mr Dependent.―Internet, with its phenomenal growth, has graduated from being Mr Happening to amedium that had arrived,‖ Arumugam added. 8

Khan announced that the film would be subsidised through major brandties-up. Marketing of the film began in December 2010 with the release of the filmstheatrical poster, which was followed by the release of two teaser trailers during the 2011ICC Cricket World Cup. The film official website was launched on May 31, 2011, andsubsequently an official YouTube channel for the film was unveiled. On October 20, 2011,Khan held a live chat with fans on Google Plus, the first time an Indian film personalityhad done so. The look of the films titular antagonist, which had been kept under strictsecrecy, was revealed in the final theatrical trailer.The films marketing utilized the concepts of merchandising and gaming so as to facilitate thecreation of a franchise. Red Chillies Entertainment partnered with Sony ComputerEntertainment Europe to create "Ra.One – The Game", a game for PlayStations which wasreleased on October 5, 2011. On October 14, 2011, a gaming tournament featuring high-profile games like Call of Duty was conducted in Mumbai and telecast live on YouTube.

  18. 18. [6] Special Appearance of Chitti (Rajnikant) [7] Shah Rukh appeared on KaunBanegaCrorepati with Amitabh Bachchan Khan and Sinha embarked on a multi-city tour during which they unveiled a 3,600- [1] feet fan mail to collect audience messagesAny controversies triggeredAfter the principal photography began, Ra.One faced allegations of plagiarism andsimilarities with other films. When questioned, Khan said, "I got inspired from a lot ofsuperhero movies but the movie is original. In fact, Ra.One will be the first superhero-basedmovie in the world in which the superhero lives in a family." Commenting on Enthiran, hesaid, "they [both] are different films." Subsequently, Ra.One faced a number of similarallegations of plagiarism, with special emphasis on the similarities with Terminator 2:Judgment Day (1991), the Batman series, Iron Man (2008), The Sorcerers Apprentice(2010) and Tron: Legacy (2010).The producers of Ra.One had taken a number of steps to prevent content leaks from the sets.The studios were upgraded and fitted with state-of-the-art equipment, and most of thecomputers were devoid of an Internet connection. The computers which did have the facilitywere closely monitored for the content that passed through them, with a separate log beingmaintained. Despite these precautions, the films song "ChammakChallo" was leakedseveral months prior to the official soundtrack release, greatly upsetting the crew. Heclarified that the leaked version was a "rough version" of the actual song, and that the personresponsible for the leak was being looked for. Khan subsequently refuted claims that the leakhad been engineered as a publicity stunt.On June 3, 2011, three days after its launch, the official website of the film was hacked bysuspected Pakistani cyber criminals who stated that the act was in revenge for a similarattack on a Karachi press club website. The hackers defaced the homepage and left a notethreatening the Indian Press Club.A few days before release, a scriptwriter YashPatnaik claimed that Ra.One resembled aconcept that he had developed several years back. Patnaik appealed to the Bombay HighCourt for a delay in the films release, until he was given due credit or 10% of the filmsoverall profit. The court, observing prima facie evidence that there had been copyrightviolations, asked the filmmakers to deposit Rs.1 crore (US$199,500) on October 21, 2011with the court before releasing the film. However, Patnaik challenged the court decision anddemanded that the producers give him credit and not cash. Sinha later claimed that he alonehad developed the films story.Film Merchandizing[8] Cap Socks Shoes 18

They had around 37 sequences and a majority of them are difficult and time consuming, as you can see in the trailer. The most challenging sequence is the suit of SRK, which is a combination of visual effects [10] plus reality. They spent a good deal of time developing the pipelines for the cubic transformations in the film. There are actually six or seven different algorithms required to facilitate all the on-screen action, and the development and testing of these pipelines has been the most challenging aspect of the show. 150 artists just focused on doing the research and development. There are 3,500 + shots amounting to about 2 hours and 15 minutes [10] of combined VFX. A major chunk is happened at redchillies.vfx. Created a graphically designed flawlessly looking face of Rajinikant, after taking textures from Rajini‘s Robot sequences. Sensors were put on the face of Rajinikanth and his facial expressions were captured through MoCAP. Rajini was also made to wear Chitti‘s attire and walk in and out of the sporty Benz car, his entire body movements especially the facial expressions were captured and real motion was put to his computer generated face and body. , Rajini‘s voice was also recorded on the VFX [11] machine and not in a professional dubbing studio making it sound shabby. Required 2,600 artists to convert 4,400 shots of the film to 3D. The films reported 3,500 special effects shots within 195,000 VFX frames were incorporated by 1,200 [1] artistsworking for 2½ years.Studio Technology[12]Synthespian Studios to execute 120 visual effects shots involving complex digitaltransformations of live-action characters 19
  20. 20. Graphics programmers headed by HelgeMathee wrote custom software (nicknamed ―Q-Bricks‖) that emulates artificially intelligent systems, giving the component digital cubes aunique dynamism as they break apart and re-formPost-Production[1]The post-production crew of the film comprised of both Indian and overseas personnel.Sound designer ResulPookutty was responsible for the films sound design, with A. R.Rahman providing the background score for a single sequence.Sanjay Sharma and editorMartin Walsh carried out the films editing. Prime Focus was responsible for the filmsstereoscopic conversion, with London-based colorist Richard Fearon responsible for the colorgrading. Red Chillies VFX undertook the incorporation of the films visual effects under thesupervision of Jeffrey Kleiser, and partnered with a number of visual effects studios aroundthe world to do so.Nvidia provided the information technology–based software utilized forthe effects, while Edwark Quirk supervised over the CGI work in the film.The idea for the films stereoscopic conversion was put forth during filming, and wasimplemented in July 2011 due to a revived interest in 3D films. The process required 2,600artists to convert 4,400 shots of the film to 3D. The films sound design involved bridgingreality and the virtual world, and the required sound enhancements were achieved by usingthe Dolby Surround 7.1 system. The incorporation of the visual effects began in April 2010,and was preceded by extensive research. The films reported 3,500 special effects shotswithin 195,000 VFX frames were incorporated by 1,200 artists working for 2½ years. Anumber of complex effects were executed, including cloning and cubical transformations.Despite precautions, the post-production faced significant delays owing to the digital inter-mediation, increased work-load due to the 3D and dubbed versions of the film, and delays inthe delivery of the visual effects. The post-production also faced budget constraints andwitnessed an overuse of CGI. Only two days were available to finish the film and send it forprinting, generating significant anxiety regarding the films ability to release at the set date.Khan subsequently kept strict tabs on the progress of work, and postponed his knee surgeryso as to complete the film on time.Collaboration with Hollywood[13]Western Union‘s million-dollar mass media campaign rolled out in India and around theworld across US, Canada, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific focusing on keyIndian diaspora countries in association with Indian film superstar Shahrukh Khan‘s mostanticipated movie Ra.One.Box Office Collection[14]Rs. 192 croreAudience reception measure of the film/shows success failureThe movie did movie did well on the technical grounds but failed to fulfill audiencesexpectations. Some of the scenes are entertaining but when one goes to watch a SRKfilm, one hopes to be entertained throughout, and Ra.One fails to do so. 20
  21. 21. TaranAdarsh of Bollywood Hungama gave the film a score of 4.5 out of 5 and said,"Ra.One is the most ambitious, most expensive and the most technologically complexHindi film ever made.

The only reason one stops short of recommending Ra.One is thesporadic adult content that has no business being in a film for kids."Arthur J. Pais of Rediff rated the film with 2 stars and called the film "a gloriousmess."KunalGuha of Yahoo! panned the film, awarding it less than one star, and wrote that,"Its convenient to say that if you have no expectations from the film, you wouldnt bedisappointed."[1] 21

  29. 29. Reason for Success of DabanggDepth of distribution of the films:1800 screens in India and 300 screen worldwideWidth of exhibition :The story of movie was related with the states of UP, Bihar and hence it was necessary to tapthe market of these states. Although Mumbai, Delhi were dominating areas for getting box-office collection but now-a-days North Indian movie market was also rising. Hence,promotion of the movie was done in local channels like Mahuaa. Even adding Itemsong MunniBadnam was a strategy to gain attention of people of these states.Arbaaztraveled whole country (U.P,Biharetc)to promote his new movie Dabangg with its starcast.In India, the film had a strong opening with occupancy ranging between 80-100% inmultiplexes and nearly 100% in single screens[1]Elements of corporatization:As it was much of the family production there was not extra corporatization used.How the film was financed:Arbaaz Khan Production.MalaikaArrora KhanDhillin MehtaBrand sponsors:Wadhwa group - kapilwadhwan groupDheerajkapilwadhwan groupDixcy Scott - ‗the ultimate winner‘Force Motors - ‗dumhaiboss‘Media partner: utv –bindass,, ZoomConnect Radio partner- Red Fm 93.5Online anti – piracy partner - RepubliqueAlternative Revenue streams:The audio rights of the film were sold for about Rs. 9.5 crore 29
  30. 30. The satellite rights of the film were pre-sold for a nominal Rs. 10 crore to ColorsIn-film placements:One of the films songs, "MunniBadnaamHui", included a brand name, Zandu BalmMovie Marketing:As part of Dabangg promotions, Salman will judge a wrestling match in Nagpur. The firstleg of promotions for Dabangg will see Salman Khan visit Nagpur. The actor, along withbrothers Arbaaz and Sohail, co-star Sonakshi, SonuSood and MalaikaArora Khan will judge awrestling match while in the city on SeptemberArbaaz adopted a new marketing strategy for Dabangg. He believes that his film can dobusiness for more than Rs. 200 Crore if that film released in non-multiplex theatre for masspeople. The ticket price in multiplex hall is more than Rs. 300 which is very high for acommon man. So, common people watch movie by pirated CD/DVD which comes in Rs. 10-20. But if a new film is available in theatre for Rs. 20, 30, 40, 50 then any common man willlike to watch film in theatre. So, movie was released across 1,584 single screen theatres forcommon people. This strategy worked against the piracy also, as tickets were cheaper, andnumber of people came to watch the movie.Gimmicks/PR Tactics:Salman Khan‘s DABANGG promotion in Bihar.As the film is set in the interiors of Bihar, SonakshiSinha, who is daughter of Patna MP andveteran actor ShatrughanSinha, wanted Salman Khan to go to her native place for thepromotion of the flick.However, Salman Khan was not very enthusiastic due to apprehension of large number offans creating security problem. But after ShatrughanSinha stepped in to take care of thisaspect, the macho actor gave in and will be going to interiors of Bihar to promote the flick.[2]Any controversies:Dabangg was the subject of several controversies. One of the films songs,"MunniBadnaamHui", included a brand name, Zandu Balm, in its lyrics, much to thedispleasure of Emmami, the makers of Zandu Balm. A trademark case was settled by theproducers and Emmami out of court and MalaikaArora Khan was later roped in to for anofficial ad campaign promoting Zandu Balm. Activist Rajkumar Talk filed a case inthe Bombay High Court, demanding that the word "Hindustan" be deleted from the song andclaiming that the censor board had not responded to his queries in regard to the "defaming"lyrics. He found them "highly objectionable" and "unpardonable" and labelled the song a"mockery" for the country, as a girl was "indecently" dancing in the presence of corruptedofficers, which, according to him, threw bad light on the nation and "hurt the patrioticsentiments of every Indian".[3]Before release, critic and writer Shobhaa De called for a boycott of Dabangg, due to SalmanKhans comments on the 2008 Mumbai attacks. She criticised it as "arrogance, ignorance and 30
  31. 31. plain stupidity." This sparked off a fight with the producers of the film via Twitter, latercontinued after her negative review of the film.[4]Film merchandizing:Dabangg,has in collaboration with PVR cinemas pan India recently launched the limitedexclusive merchandise of Dabanggat PVR cinemas. The merchandise includes sunglasses,watches and t-shirts.[5]Broadcasting rights:Dabangg missed out on big satellite revenue as the rights were sold well prior to release. Thesatellite rights were sold for around 10 crore while now after the stupendous success of thefilm the rights would probably have been worth 30-35 crore.[6]Use of animation/vfx:Bangalore based VenSat, a provider of animation, visual effects, motion comics and 2D/3Dconversion services and best known for visual effects (VFX) for the 2010 motion picturereleases, ‗DABANGG‘ and some of the complex VFX sequences for ROBOT has raised$10mn from Indo-US Venture Partner[7]Studio technologies:PixionPost-ProductionEditing done by Pranav V DhiwarBox Office Collection:Dabangg grossed 212croresRs. 140 crore[9]Audience reception:On the whole, DABANGG is a full on entertainer with three aces – Salman Khan like neverbefore, stylish action and super music. Sure to fetch an earth-shattering opening, the film willcreate a pandemonium at the box-office, cementing the status of Salman Khan as the darlingof the masses and making the distributors laugh all the way to the bank. It has Blockbusterwritten all over it!TaranAdarsh ( it strictly for Salman, who delivers enoughbang for your buck!Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN)I recommend that you see the film for the sheer pleasure ofwatching Salman Khan in top form.Anupama Chopra ([10] 31

Ltd and Sun TV Network Ltd.Use of animation and vfxThe movie required an unobtrusive VFX of over 2000 shots that add up to around 60 scenes in thefilm. An Indian Technocrat named V.Srinivas handled the entire film Visual Effects as a VFXSupervisor. Frankie Chung and Eddy Wong from the Hollywood were the additional supervisors forthe VFX.A lot of techniques were used in this movie to reach international standards. Three of them are:Pre – Production with Detailed Pre – VisualizationAnimatronicsLight Stage Face Scanning Technology.Studios & Teams from the Hollywood were used to implement these technologies in the movie.About 40 scenes were pre-visualized in the pre-production stage and were done in animation beforegoing in for the actual shoot. The pre-production of these scenes alone took 6 – 7 months.This animatronics was used in about 22 scenes in the total of the movie. All the resources andtechnology available were used for the same including, puppets, mannequins and special make-up.Two main Robot puppets were designed and built exclusively for this project. About 40 mannequinsof the Robot Rajinikanth were got from Legacy Effects Studio for the scenes involving number ofrobots.The VFX Team used a unique technology such as the Doom Light Stage Scanning for thedetail high resolution CGI Face. Also the Indian Artists have developed a new proprietaryskin shader plugin with the help of Jupiter Jazz, the developers of shake.Motion graphics and head up displays in the film have been minor parts which were takencare in detail to reveal the story and give the science fiction texture to the visuals.The seemless blending of key frame animation, motion capture, animatronics, multi-robots,real model/texture scan of character had given the right photo-real blend to story. VFX havebeen seamless and consistent with right color timing from the DI team lead by Mr. Ken,Reliance Media Works.The most interesting and challenging sequence in the movie is the Climax Sequence. TheClimax sequence involves 100s of robots grouping into a cluster with their electromagneticpowers and forming different shapes and forms of characters such as a giant snake and giant 35
  36. 36. human. Each of the robots had a separate biped and each of them had to be animated to forthe formation of the final form and characters to be smooth, such as the formation of the headof the giant snake.A crew of highly qualified technocrats and highly imaginative directors had to put in theirheart and soul for 3 years and spend 6 months of sleepless nights for the movieStudio technologies:Some of the major jinx in the visual treatment was the motion control shots which hadmultiplication of the Robot Character. This involved a lot of planning before going for theshots and getting it 100% done with less money spent. Having the frame information on thetop and bottom in the super 35 format, Indian artists devised a camera rig to get perfectionwith manual control without the action motion control rigs, which would have consumed lotof time, money and human effort if it were used for the complete project.Animatronics is the use of Mechatronic Objects with motion sensors which can be made tomove with the help of remotely operated devices. The motion sensor captured the movementof the person who impersonates the object and will make its movements accordingly. Thiswas the technology that was earlier used by Stephen Spielberg in his Award Winning Movie‗Jurassic Park‘Post Production:RajinikanthsRobot has been dubbed in many languages including Hindi.

  39. 39. Observation and Inferences Ra. OneWeak Story line:The Biggest reason for the failure of the Movie was that the movie was not able to live up tothe expectation of the audience, which was created during pre-release of the movie. Themarketing team worked hard, but it was not sufficient enough to cover for the weak storyline.Target Audience:The target audience of the movie was target mostly towards the urban and semi-urban area ofthe country, which is a very narrow market in India. It did well initially, but was not able tosustain due to weak story line.It did well in overseas market where there is huge following for King Khan.Music:Akon voiced for two songs "ChammakChallo" and "Criminal", which gave the music aninternational popularity.The album had seven original tracks four remixes, three instrumentals and an internationalversion of "ChammakChallo". There were Tamil and Telugu versions released with 6 trackseach.Alternate Revenue Stream:As Shahrukh Khan is media favorite, it created hype for the movie did not do well on box office, the movie did not end up on losses, becauseof its additional revenue sources. The wide range of merchandise and easy availability ofthose, on the official website of, added to the overall success of the movie. 39
  40. 40. Reasons for the success of DabanggStardom:One of the biggest reasons of the success of the movie was the stardom and the fan followingof Salman khan. Salman khan has a huge fan following in the interior parts of the rural India,which was also the theme of the story of a police officer staying in a small village of Bihar.Masses:Salman Khan is the boss, when it comes to playing to the masses, and this movie had themass appeal. The movie had an appeal for all masses and classes, be it the young and the old,the girls and the boys, the men and the women.Personality:Salman Khan has a unique fan following, who likes the real life personality of Salman Khanand his character in the movie had a lot of resemblance, like the Jolly person with theDabangg attitude and a bad boy with a good heart.Timing:The timing of the movie was just perfect as Salman Khan has the history of giving some hugehits when his movies were released on the day of Eid which is a huge festival in India.Music:The movie had one of the best music score of that time. The album contains five originalsound tracks which were very well mixed with the story of the movie. The music of Dabanggperformed well on the charts after its release. The songs, "Tere Mast Mast Do Nain" and"MunniBadnaam" became chart busters and entered the list of top 20 most frequently playedsongs on radio in India.Tere Mast Mast Do Nain", as performed by RahatFateh Ali Khan, reached no.1 on theOfficial Asian Download Chart in the UK based on legal downloads in that country.The brand of music had appeal to the mass audience because it‘s simple, catchy, easy on theears and fun.Casting:The casing of the movie was perfects and had given justification to the character of themovie. Salman who had played several police roles in the past was just perfect for thecharacter of ChulbulPandey.SonuSood was selected for playing the lead antagonist as he has played similar character inother Tamil movies.The pinch of freshness was added by the inclusion of new comer SonakshiSinha, the daughterof ShatrughanSinha, as lead actress in the movie 40
  41. 41. Promotions:The movie was promoted heavily in Semi-Urban areas and rural area. Salman Khan had goneto Bihar for the promotion of the movie as the star has a huge fan following in that region.
