Default Tata Indigo Manza Safire-My life's first ever full video-only review on tbhp

This is a review of a pretty different kind.
My first ever public appearence in front of camera in my whole life.

I have always been a camera shy person, kind of reserved in terms of my private life, that is never made any appearances in front of camera in public.

But today was-different, thanks to a friend of mine named Vikas who encouraged me to do this review of an Indigo Manza Petrol.

This review is extremely back to basic, like a typical dealership test drive that an average Indian car buyer does. I have not stressed on numbers here, but just on product from an aam aadmi's point of view.

Yes, this does have a whole lot of loopholes for a first timer but I wanted to do something different today, and given my limitations and that too of my ordinary digicam, I hope that I may be excused.

I am not saying that I want to become a presenter of sorts, but sincerely, I enjoyed doing this video shoot and it made me more confident than ever before.

Please give your honest suggestions, feedback and improvements that can be done to make it better.

Cheers to all,
Siddharth.

Interesting to see you call Delhi 'paradise'. I like the Delhi wallahs spirit. Good that you made this review, I am in the hunt for a sedan...

Nice initiative taken Sid. This type of review give a more realistic view about various aspects of the car and would be more effective. After going through the review, gives me a feeling as if I have taken a test drive.

I would suggest you take the video and record your comments seperately. There is a lot of unwanted sound which drowns out your voice at times. Plus, recording your voice seperately allows you to think about what you want to say clearly. That isn't so easy when you're driving through crowded streets.

Good effort mate! Video test drives will be a nice extra feature on the forum

Nice review Sid.
McL-R's suggestion is good. Alternatively you can also consider recording your review in a quieter place

Sid,

I would say just two words - Simply Superb!

It is very difficult to face the camera when you know the number of people who will be viewing it.

A request - Please do post the video review for Indigo Manza Diesel as well.

Cheers!

Default Not Wearing Seat Belts???

Are you wearing seat belts? It is nice video review of Tata Indigo Manza Saffire Aura ABS and good starting overall.

The review is superb. The vedio needs editing. Cut the unwanted seen, also you need to use the remote mic to put in your t-shirt so that other noise can be avoided.

Superb review. Very good start. Looking fwd to more such video reviews.
One suggestion - cut out the traffic and wind noise. Sometimes we missed what you were saying.

Kudos!!

You have asked for a honest one, so I will have one for you. Now, here you go -
Overall, it is a very good initiative. I must appreciate this. However, there is nothing to be excited about the contents. In fact, you have repeated the same fact at least 3/4 times and most of these facts are found in the spec list accessible to anyone who is interested in buying this car. Why should I waste my time in watching this video unless you have something new for me.

Well, although my feedback is bit harsh, but it will help you to improve next time.
