Why you should book movies with Niki. And tell your friends to do so too!

Are you a movie fan? Who isn’t, right! We at niki.ai are too, and so when we started working on building the Movie Booking Service on Niki, we were adamant to build the best experience there is. And finally we have made the service live to enable easy movie bookings on chat! Now you can search, explore, filter, choose and go on to book any movie running near you. Swagat nahi karoge humara  😀

So what’s the big fuss and why should you use Niki to book your movies, and not other platforms?

In short, the AI powered chat experience is much faster and convenient through easier discovery and tons of options.

Faster Experience

Say you and a couple of friends decide to watch an action movie today in the evening. Everywhere else, you will search for the running movies, then filter by genre, then filter by city, then filter by language. You will then select a movie that fits these filters. Out of the many theatres & the corresponding times it is playing at, you will browse through all the options to select the ones near you and the ones that have a show in the evening. Maybe no option fits, so you go back to the main screen and select a different movie. Do the filtering & browsing again. After the long, arduous process you will finally get a show where the location, time and movie all match your likings.

With Niki, all you do is type ‘Show English action movies near me after 8PM for today’. Done!

Easier Discovery

What if you wish to watch a Shah Rukh Khan movie. Or if you want to check movies running near your locality. Or you can only watch a movie that is running on Wednesday after 8 PM. Or you want to watch a movie in Malayalam. There are tons of limitations and preferences that we have while booking, and exploring, movies. Niki makes it extremely simple to work around these, and presents you with options that best suit your needs. Simply text Niki all your preferences and Niki will understand them all. For example, just text Niki ‘Marathi movie in Andheri after 7PM’.

Everywhere else you SEARCH for which movie, when & where. With Niki, she TELLS you which movie, when & where, depending on your preferences.

Innumerable options

Powered by BookMyShow, Niki can search and book shows pan India, in multiple languages and at almost all theaters. So it doesn’t matter which city or town you live in, which language you watch you movies in, who your favourite actor is or what your budget is, Niki can surely help you out. Fire the app, punch in your preferences and voila! Niki will present movies you like to watch aapke najdiki cinema gharo mai (in theatres near you!).

Some exciting movies, like Bahubali 2, are almost here. And many more are coming in the next few weeks and months. So what are you waiting for?! Update the app now & start booking! Kyuki kafi pictures dekhni abhi baki hai mere dost 😀

Niki Wishes You A Happy Friendship Day!

It’s a special day for Niki as she has found more than 50,000 friends. They have all played an important role in making it a better App. Niki has been learning and improving. She is proud to have helped in some way or another.

This Friendship day is a little more special to her because she is growing as an App and also building a larger family. We thought of gifting her something this year to make this day a little more special. Thus, we announced the #ReferKaroAurJeeto Contest two weeks back.

After a lot of discussions, we finally got an innovative idea for our gift to Niki. Since she loves helping her friends we thought of finding her some more. We brought together all of Niki’s friends to find her more friends and hence this contest was launched.

Since the launch Niki has been blessed with a lot of new friends. We are also happy to see the terrific response for this contest. It has become the battle to win the “money in the bank”! We have thoughtfully made it a win-win game for both Niki and her friends who are referring her to everybody.

While Everybody Has Gone Crazy Over Pokemon GO, Niki Still Helps You With Your Daily Needs

Niki is having a bright day when everybody else in the world has been going crazy over finding Pokemon. Our media channels have taken up the task to update us about the power and impact of finding Pokemon.

Dil toh baccha hai ji and we all love our childhood. Pokemon GO has brought back the 90’s era in a different and better way. It has taught us several things and there are several unheard rumours about it. People have begun to claim that Gandhiji went for Dandi march because even he was playing Pokemon GO.

Meanwhile, a man has been reported to have quit his job because he needed more time to find all his favourite pokemons. Niki understands that we all want to focus more on the game than other things. You can spend more time playing while you ask Niki to help you with your daily needs.

Tired of doing your laundry? – Niki to the rescue.

Everyone knows that a Rohit Shetty movie will have cars flying around in gravity defying motions. Similarly it is a well known fact that no-one has been able to eat just a single Lays from a freshly opened pack. Except Rajnikant, of course. It is also common knowledge that Kejriwal is still playing hide & seek with Modi’s degree.

Rohit-Shetty-cars-flying-meme

But something which is even more unanimously accepted by one and all is that doing laundry is the most boring thing in the world. Be it young or be it old, be it married or be it a free bird, be it male or be it female, everyone absolutely hates and loathes doing the laundry.

Everyone recognizes its importance and the necessity to keep their clothes clean. However, It is one of those things which completely saps all the energy and happiness out of you. Legend has it that Voldemort hated it so much that he just cut his nose off, so he won’t have to smell his dirty clothes again and hence avoid doing the laundry. 😉

Well, only if he had Niki. She understands this pain very well that you have. She too has to wash her codes and dry clean her machines and iron her wires. In fact, let me tell you a secret! Niki has bought a new breathtakingly beautiful dress, which you will soon see in form of a new UI! And to make your life even easier, Niki can now help you get clothes washed and ironed on chat! Doesn’t sound dreadful at all, does it?

All you have to do is tell Niki to collect your dirty clothes from your house. Tell her a convenient time when to collect them and she will send a mortal human to collect. Later when your clothes are clean and dry, you can tell her when and where to deliver them back to you. For a change, it is easier done than said. It’s that simple!

And, there’s more to it as we are also running an introductory offer for a limited period of time where you will get Rs. 50 cashback on your first successful order.

Now that doing your laundry is no longer the most boring thing in the world, I think that crown goes to where it should belong – The most boring thing in the world is to wait for a video to buffer on slow internet while stuck in traffic in a cab with two people chatting non stop in a language you cannot understand. 😉

Mr. Ratan Tata gets on board with Niki.

It was again an ordinary day at work. We were working ferociously at our headquarters and as usual Niki was busy improvising consumer’s buying experience. And it happened. All of a sudden, Niki started shouting. Unable to determine the cause, we were standing with anxious looks on our faces (Damn these chatbots!! Can’t even control their feelings).

Finally after lots of counselling sessions, Niki was ready to talk. And then we lost our minds too! The news of course was very exciting. Mr. Ratan Tata had decided to invest in Niki! The International Business tycoon, the idol of a million entrepreneurs and the jewel in the crown of Indian Business ecosystem thinks that what we are doing at Niki.ai was worth his time, his mentorship & his money. It was a happy and proud moment for the whole team. And no doubt, the news became trending in leading newspapers including Economic Times, NDTV, The Hindu and many more.

There are very few sectors in India which the tata group has not left its signature on. So what makes this investment so special? And here comes the amazing part – This is Ratan Tata’s first investment into the world of Artificial Intelligence. And what makes us even more proud is the fact that Ratan Tata has never invested in a start up at such an early stage.

Niki has always been a wonderful cadet when it comes to adapting every user’s preferences and creating the ideal AI-to-human interaction. By taking advantage of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning, Niki is designed to understand advanced communication and simple text-speak in order to revolutionise the buying experience as a whole. And Niki is fulfilling her expectations quite well, but driving force for a huge journey is constant motivation. While we personally are very excited about this, as a company we can now learn from the rich experience of one of the finest business leaders of our times.
