Mumbai: The need of hour for the youth is to be in control constantly in their lives. This band uses a simple gesture of twisting your wrist to bring alive the thought of – Its all in your hand. The film uses horror, the flavour of the season to bring out a very cutting-edge technology in light and Fastrack manner.
The film is set in an eerie campsite by the lake. The key protagonist, the girl, uses an Ouija board to call a spirit. The group of friends around are very skeptical initially on the presence of a spirit around. She seamlessly uses the gesture of twisting her wrist to change the music on her phone placed on a dock. The constant switching of songs adds to the eeriness of the surrounding. It makes the group of friends, especially the male protagonist believe the presence of something supernatural around and he instantly reaches for the girl for comfort. She smartly uses the gesture feature of Reflex Wav to prank her friends and is very successful at the end of it.
The commercial cleverly brings out the gesture control feature of the new Fastrack Reflex Wav in a funny and light manner.
