In the next shot he is shown clicking pictures of the kite his friends are flying on a roof top. He then shares the image. The next frame shows him seated on a plank hung from a mountain top and watching movies on his mobile; he says that is his special seat reserved for movie screenings.  The voice over says “presenting the new Samsung Galaxy Grand –Smartphone experience redefined,” while the TVC shows the mobile and highlights its features.
