New Delhi, February 3, 2014: Tata Motors today unveiled two all-new cars – the classy sedan, ZEST and the sporty, dynamic premium hatchback, BOLT that look to redefine the passenger car market with new design aesthetics, segment-defining drive experience and high-tech Infotainment system.

ZEST – that clearly signifies enthusiasm for life, for the sense of excitement, anticipation, and energy it brings, approaching life as an adventure. It is all about being vivacious and energetic.

Those who have Zest exude excitement and energy while approaching life and that is the new ZEST Sedan, in character.

BOLT– with the name signifying speed, it represents an attitude of winning, and staying ahead. This attitude is embodied in the all-new BOLT in all aspects of design, drive and seamless connect.

Speaking on the occasion of the launch, ­Mr. Ranjit Yadav, President, Passenger Vehicles, Tata Motors, said, “We at Tata Motors are delighted to showcase to the global market the much awaited next generation cars – the ZEST, a stunning and exciting new compact sedan and the BOLT, a dynamic hatch. These cars have been engineered for global markets, through global teams across India, UK and Korea to set new standards in their respective segments. These cars are a true representation of our Horizonext philosophy, with best-in-class offerings for performance that yet offers economy and efficiency.”

ZEST and BOLT have been designed and developed based on three key fundamental principles, namely, DesigNext, DriveNext, ConnectNext.

ZEST and BOLT, a result of the collaborative design inputs from the three Tata Motors design studios in Pune, Coventry (UK) and Turin ( Italy), come with several segment first features and a new design language on the exterior and the interior of the car.

The company has introduced a new design language – DesignNext – that gives an expression to an excellent combination of sleek, smart styling and enhanced comfort that increases driver productivity. The new design language distills the fine points of auto design with cuts and lines that accentuate the modern India and its global citizens.

The new design semantics include the new Tata signature grill with new the Humanity Line, visually flowing into the dynamic headlamps to create a unique design signature for the brands. With flowing lines that create an illusion of movement even when the car is standing still, its exterior exaggerates size to give it a feeling of a larger hatchback or a sedan. In the ZEST, the projector headlamps complemented by chrome accents, the daytime running lights, the rear treatment of LED lamps, the trendy 15” alloy wheels, combined with a signature Buzz Blue colour, add up to a dynamic and stylish pouncing stance. Matching aesthetic design with function, the BOLT’s floating roof spoiler not only provides an extra-sporty touch but also aids in aerodynamics. The sporty, confident look is further enhanced with fog lamp Bezels.

The interiors of both these cars are geared for a premium feel. The driver-focused dashboard architecture carries premium chrome embellishment to render the cockpit with an aura of elegance. The instrument cluster and the central AC vents are connected in a single wing-shaped graphics.

DriveNext, is a new approach to the driving dynamics that offers driver complete control of a highly responsive machine. The ZEST and BOLT will be powered by the segment-first, Turbocharged Intercooled Multi-point Fuel-Injected (MPFi) Petrol Engine, REVOTRON 1.2T, which brings revolution in refinement, performance and economy.

The diesel variant of ZEST will have the first-in-class F-Tronic technology-enabled, 5-speed Automated Manual Transmission and will be powered by a segment-leading 90PS engine with 200 Nm of uninterrupted flat torque to offer a peppy drive with seamless delivery of power.

Further, both ZEST and BOLT will have EPAS (Electronic Power Assisted System), with ‘Active Return’ function and speed sensitive power steering – a first for both segments. New advanced ABS for improved braking efficiency and with yet another segment-first, the Cornering Stability feature, add to the safety features of the vehicle. A silent, quieter cabin will ensure a pleasant and superlative drive experience. The Dual-path suspension coupled with a zero pivot subframe ensures smooth and comfortable ride. The improved suspension provides effective isolation from road inputs without compromising on the body control, translating into a class leading balance between ride and handling. This provides for a very comfortable but engaging drive experience.

At Tata Motors, with ConnectNext, the company will deliver a new level of driving and ownership experience as users from their own smart device, can not only enjoy superior quality of entertainment, control the deliverance of all ergonomics, acoustics and climatic needs, but also get access to outside world seamlessly, with a touch.

Recognizing the dynamic consumer world where connectivity is an increasing need for all, Tata Motors has associated with HARMAN for designing the infotainment and audio acoustics system and with MapmyIndia for next generation navigation & location based services.

The company has incorporated latest new technologies to make the ZEST and the BOLT, the most connected, high-tech hatchback and sedan respectively. Forming the core of the ConnectNext experience is the all-new HARMAN infotainment system with first-in-class features that will allow the car users to stay connected with friends, family and the world.

With the 5-inch touchscreen supporting rich multimedia experience, advanced Bluetooth technology, smart voice recognition, advanced smartphone integration, supporting phone enabled navigation, social media integration, touch phone controlled interface, the ZEST and the BOLT will ensure these car users could seamlessly integrate their professional and personal lives into their commute and travel, while bringing in an unparalled infotainment experience. The system has in-built HVAC controls, which is a first-in-class experience for all consumers.

Manufactured on a completely enhanced X1 platform, the ZEST and the BOLT mark a strategic shift towards a global portfolio of cars designed to offer high performance and connectivity. These cars will be launched in 2014 in India and subsequently in other countries.

“BEWAKOOFIYAAN”

LOVE MEIN THHODA STUPID!

Mohit is a marketing whiz kid vying for a step up the career ladder…

Mayera – a financial brain with a penchant for shoes…

They’re a young middle-class corporate couple that’s ambitious and likes the good life too.

They work hard, they party hard.

They’re also passionately in love with each other.

Their belief: You can live on love and fresh air…

Their obstacle: Mayera’s wilful bureaucratic father V.K Sehgal.

The obstinate old man believes that only a rich man can bring Mayera happiness and a mid-level executive like Mohit simply isn’t good enough!

Exactly how fragile are relationships in these times where consumer lifestyles dictate their very nature and intensity? Who gets the last laugh when recession strikes and the lack of money tests love… credit-card-junkies private-sector Mohit-Mayera; or safe-playing sarkari, V.K. Sehgal?

BEWAKOOFIYAAN, a contemporary slice of life story which turns set notions about relationships on their head is directed by Nupur Asthana and has been written by the versatile writer/director Habib Faisal. The film is produced by Aditya Chopra. This is Nupur’s second film for the Studio, after her successful directorial debut last year with Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge, under the Y Films banner.

The film stars Rishi Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana and Sonam Kapoor in lead roles.

BEWAKOOFIYAAN releases worldwide on 14th March 2014.

The trailer of Ragini MMS- 2 to also feature on adult sites.

The theatrical trailer of Sunny Leone’s ‘Ragini MMS-2’ that releases today will not make it to just the Bollywood and Indian news sites. It will also be seeded worldwide across Leone’s network of adult web-sites, making it the first for any Bollywood film.

It is no unknown fact that Sunny is the most searched online celebrity and her videos on adult sites have a huge viewership.

The film is a heady mix of horror and sex, and the platform and reach of Sunny Leone’s network of adult sites will ensure that Sunny’s loyal fans catch her ‘never-seen before’ avatar!

This is Sunny’s first full-blown horror film. (It may be interesting to know that in real life Sunny is extremely scared of horror films and had sleepless nights when she saw the first Ragini MMS before signing up for the sequel.)

“Nothing spells super sexy and super scary as well as the RMMS-2 promo does. This is something my fans and lovers haven’t seen before! It’s a treat that I don’t want them to miss,” says an excited Leone.

Tanuj Garg, CEO of Balaji films, says “Sunny enjoys a huge viewership on adult websites, so yes, we are launching the trailer on these websites” .

Produced by ALT Entertainment and directed by Bhushan Patel, ‘Ragini MMS 2’, the sequel to the 2011 hit ‘Ragini MMS’, is slated to release on March 21.

Surat se Nirdosh Magar Naag hai Ichadhari – Jazzy B

Crown Prince of Bhangra, king of beats, who always manages some how to be in news either for his hairstyles and rings or his sultry videos – Jazzy B always made a mark for whatever he does. And this time again he did it, his recent song ‘Harry Not A Brahmachari’ from the film Shaadi K Side Effects is a peppy number and making people shake their leg whenever this song is being played. With lyrics like ‘…surat se nirdosh magar naag hai ichadhari…’ is getting on everyone’s lips the moment they hears the song.

The music of this song has been composed by Pritam da and Jazzy B is letting his voice for Pritam’s composition. An excited Jazzy B said, ‘I got a call from Pritam da’s office about this song and the next thing I remember I was recording the song. Pritam knows the pulse of present generation and so his compositions get easily connected with the mass. So, I was sure this song will work but it became a rage in such short time. ’

Apart from being singer Jazzy B is also an actor, and a music director himself. So when asked did he try to give his inputs in the composition department of ‘Harry Not a Brahmachari,’ the singer very firmly replied, ‘Not at all. I had full faith in Pritam da’s composition. Yes he wanted to add some sounds of traditional Punjabi instruments so I arranged that for him. That’s all.’

Mostly he has sung Punjabi Songs, so how he felt singing for a Hindi film song…he said, ‘Very nice. It felt great for singing for Pritam da’s composition. My image is that of a Punjabi singer but after this song I hope to get more Hindi film songs.’

The song has been picturized on Farhan Akhtar and it’s heard that he also enjoyed it. On this Jazzy B said, ‘yes you heard it true, Farhan has liked the song though in person I haven’t yet meet Farhan. You can also see how much he enjoyed the song while it is been picturized on him. Plus he is such a gentlemen as he is also a singer himself yet he agreed on my voice being used in his film’s song.’

Thomson Reuters Adds Unique Twitter and News Sentiment Analysis to Thomson Reuters Eikon

Thomson Reuters introduces award-winning news sentiment data and newly-available sentiment analysis of Twitter feeds to help financial professionals gain unique insight and competitive advantage

NEW YORK, LONDON, February 3, 2014 – Thomson Reuters today announced that it has added its award-winning news sentiment data, including sentiment analysis of Twitter feeds for the first time, to its flagship financial markets desktop Thomson Reuters Eikon. Through powerful charting applications, the new data provides financial markets professionals with very quick and intuitive ways of identifying trends and potential signals in huge amounts of unstructured data, gaining unique insight and competitive advantage.

The practice of tracking news and social media sentiment to gauge and predict the impact of breaking news on market prices and volatility has been gaining popularity over the past five years with Aite Group estimating that over 50% of quantitative firms are now using machine readable news feeds. However the data provided via such feeds has been historically too detailed to be digested easily by human traders.

To cater to growing interest in the industry, Thomson Reuters has delivered a unique capability in Eikon that takes feeds from both Twitter and StockTwits and weights and analyses sentiment using a proprietary methodology. The charting application gives financial professionals a clear picture of the volume of positive and negative tweets surrounding any given listed company as well as advanced technical analysis which enables them to potentially spot market and company-impacting events as they happen. The feed incorporates identified key influencers as well as a broad cross-section of all activity to provide a unique and powerful picture of global Twitter sentiment at any given time. Customers also have the ability to drill down into the underlying data to investigate further what is being said and by whom.

In addition the recently introduced news sentiment analysis in Thomson Reuters Eikon is based on the Company’s award-winning solution Thomson Reuters News Analytics, one of the industry’s most advanced services for automating the consumption and systematic analysis of news. In addition it uses a proprietary system of sentiment scoring to provide a rolling average score for news sentiment that is more digestible to humans across over 30,000 listed companies. This data is overlaid by company share prices in a highly visual format to give financial professionals an idea of how average sentiment is evolving over time and impacting market prices, making it easy to spot key trends in the data.

“The ability to incorporate social media into the analytics toolkit is becoming an increasingly frequent demand from today’s generation of traders,” said analyst Danielle Tierney at Aite Group. “Such functionality is no longer just a value-add, but is well on its way to becoming an important part of many quantitative strategies. The real differentiator is usability, or how this data is then harnessed to present financial professionals with an easily-digestible picture of market trends.”

“Behavioral finance is an area of increasing interest in financial markets. However it has been difficult for human traders to keep pace due to the sheer volume and detail of data and the need to interpret it and spot trends immediately,” said Philip Brittan, chief technology officer and global head of platform for Financial and Risk, Thomson Reuters. “With the addition of this sentiment data to Eikon we are combining our unique content and insight with innovative visualization and analytics tools. This is really just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we plan to do to turn qualitative, unstructured text into quantitative and actionable insight for our customers.”

These latest additions to Thomson Reuters Eikon come at a time when Thomson Reuters is making significant changes to Eikon’s user interface that are designed to ensure that Eikon is always available across the customer’s entire workflow, no matter what application they are working in. From the beginning, Thomson Reuters Eikon has been designed to provide a powerful and intuitive next-generation solution for consuming real-time and historical data, connecting with the financial markets community and executing financial markets transactions across asset classes such as foreign exchange (FX), fixed income, commodities, equities and derivatives. It realizes Thomson Reuters vision for a financial markets desktop that is connected, informed, intelligent and open and provides access to a messaging community of over 200,000 financial professionals.
