  • The BRIEF
  • &pictures is a Hindi movie channel that is owned by the popular Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. India’s only premium Hindi movie channel, &pictures entertains and celebrates the today’s young at heart Indian irrespective of age and is a reflection of how people across different mind-sets are evolving. It connotes the ease with which the contemporary viewer blends his ambition to soar high while remaining rooted to his sacrosanct values.
  • The campaign is specifically catered to the Hindi TV Premiere of Smurfs: The Lost Village
  • Smurfs was one of the very few animated English content to be telecast on &pictures. It was a perfect opportunity to reconnect with the young audiences on the page along with driving awareness about the Hindi TV Premiere of the film.
  • The challenge remains that while Smurfs is a popular movie, it’s not really a part of the mainline culture in India.
  • Celebrity takeovers are passé, especially when your favorite animated characters take over your brand’s social media pages!
  • For the Hindi TV Premiere of Smurfs: The Lost Village,the team at &pictures & TSBI designed a one day activity where 4 Smurfs (Brainy, Hefty, Clumsy, and Smurfette) took over the &pictures social media handles.
  • The creative strategy was to rekindle the latent liking that a Smurfs movie lover would have towards it. For the uninitiated, we inducted them to the tribe with a Smurfs takeover.
