The year 2013 commenced with five movies battling to become the first hit of the centenary year of Hindi cinema. It turns out, that Table No 21 has left its competitors far behind in the race to be the first hit of 2013. Directed by Aditya Dutt, the psychological thriller stars Paresh Rawal, Rajeev Khandelwal and Tena Desae in lead roles.
Apart from the unique storyline, what helped Table No 21 in gaining advantage over the others was its unique marketing strategy. Before the release itself, online platforms were buzzing with news and updates about the movie. The marketing team did a great job in identifying its target audiences, and nailing it with promos and contests that aimed at attracting moviegoers.
Assets of the films were launched creatively; fans had to set the combination to 21 to watch the trailer. The team launched a QR code activity across CCD's in India, where participants had to scan the QR code present on a particular table which was called Table No 21 especially for this activity. The QR code enabled them to participate in the contest and win exciting goodies.
The Facebook page of the film engaged energetic audiences with innovative applications like psychographic test and review contests. With the numbers pouring in, there is no doubt that Table No 21 is far ahead than its competition. It has collected over Rs 6.84 crores within 4 days of its release and is still going strong at the Box-Office. Produced by A Next Gen Films production and presented by Eros International, Table No 21 is a perfect amalgamation of plot, music, acting and marketing.
