O&M Bangalore Raises a Toast to Modern Women for Watch Brand Titan Raga

O&M Bangalore Raises a Toast to Modern Women for Watch Brand Titan Raga

Over the years, Titan Raga has carved out a special place for itself by celebrating feminine beauty and sensuality. The brand has showcased exquisite collections along with charming stories of the Raga woman. And these stories have served as markers in the journey of the Indian Woman from home and hearth to the outside world.

Today in India, the codes of femininity are changing and new expressions of womanhood are being formed. A new woman is emerging—independent and confident, one who is aware of her self-worth and secure in a newfound, fulfilling relationship with herself.

The latest Raga film tells the story of one such woman and her chance meeting with a past love at an international airport lounge while both are travelling on business trips. They are genuinely happy to see each other. As they talk and catch up, the fissures of the earlier relationship are revealed. He had wanted her to stop working. She had refused. He still wanted her. After all these years, would she bend to his wishes?

It is a film that is at once timely and timeless, celebrating her new self-assuredness and confidence as well as her enduring elegance and grace.

The Raga woman is played by Ms. Nimrat Kaur (of The Lunchbox and Homeland fame) and the film is directed by Mr. Vivek Kakkad, Curious Films. 

Rajan Amba, GM, Titan Watches and Accessories said: "Raga is a reflection of the modern woman - progressive, confident and passionate. Over the years we have seen this woman evolve. She has unravelled different facets of her personality. And at every step of the way, Raga has evolved with her. Today, we are seeing a new side to this woman, where she is independent and free-spirited. And through this new film we are happy to reflect this new dimension that defines the woman of today. I'm sure this film will appeal to every modern woman because it captures their essence beautifully"

Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman & Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather South Asia, said: "Raga is an evolved watch for the evolved woman of today - a woman who's self-respecting and confident. Her story has been beautifully captured by Vivek Kakkad of Curious Films. I am really looking forward for the women of India to see it - more power to them!"

Said Joono Simon, Executive Creative Director, Ogilvy South, India: "There was a time, not long ago, when Indian brands made a habit of perpetuating gender stereotypes from the past. Raga broke this stereotype with its consistent portrayal of a spirited woman with an air of sensual power In the new commercial, the brand steps up to portray a self-assured, assertive woman who reminds us that, as far as her life is concerned, she is firmly in charge and that she alone has the ability to decide what’s good for her. I'm sure the commercial would inspire many modern women to go out and grab her rightful place under the sun."
