The movies will span genres and generations with the best of thriller, action, comedy and romance and will serve as inspiration to audiences in tackling challenges in their everyday lives, thereby making their everyday a hit day.
In the phase of its launch, the brand has also unveiled unique brand films that bring alive the channel’s brand proposition of ‘Hit Dinada Feeling’ which implies ‘Having a hit day feeling’. Taking everyday scenarios in mind, the two films launched so far are reflective of the love and passion that Kannadigas have for movies and how they draw motivation from their favorite films in dealing with their everyday challenges. The first brand film (https://youtu.be/2DiNW1al-Tc) showcases affection that an elderly couple have and how the husband quotes a dialogue from the movie Bulbul to express his feelings to his wife. In the second brand film (https://youtu.be/q2SqaLE-laA), we see a cop, inspired by the movie ‘Doddmane Huduga’, teaching a lesson to miscreants when they think they can bribe him.
