Well, if you live in Europe and want to see Criterion titles... There are many scenarios where you might want to see discs from another region.

No!I dont! For criterion, like The Last Emperor or Gandhi, I would possibly consider if in Europe, but not for JA!

I am disappointed with the current Blu-Ray offerings of Bolywood. Comeon people, get more movies like Jaane Tu ya na Jaane, Taare Zameen Par etc out.

Blu Rays are bought by Westerners mostly. With the rampant piracy of Bollywood films and lack of quality awareness in India itself and among NRIs the market is rather limited for now so there is modest interest in producing BDs. If you want to see more buy what's available (if it's acceptable quality).

I already have Om Shanti Om. The movies that I listed are also a definite buy for me. Saawariya and Hey Baby are not exactly movies I would like. With 3 movies, there is really not much of a choice now is there?

I expect at least NRIs (and the others from the region) will start appreciating blu-ray PQ with the purchase of large HDTVs. Pirated dvds look awful on plasma/lcds.

The Bollywood studios should be proactive and provide content to get the ball rolling.

Bollywood has done very well on blu-ray PQ - and expect this trend will continue. Blu-ray is an excellent tool to combat piracy and should be used to tap into the current pirated-dvd market which is worth millions of dollars.

+1 to that. There are so many movies i would buy in a hearbeat if they become available in bluray. I already own OSO and Saawariya in BD. Forget about pirated dvd's, the other day i was watching what is probably the best possible DVD version of DDLJ on dvd and it was appalled at how bad it looked even upconverted. Ironically the dvd case itself is one of the fanciest i've seen

We really need some quality BD transfers at least for some of the popular movies from Bollywood.

Also, my local Wal-Mart has Om Shanti Om and Hey Baby for 18.97 each on blu-ray. I couldn't believe it when I saw them on the regular blu-ray section. They have them in limited quantities apparently and people were buying them up pretty quick!
post #681 of 907
saw few minutes of Jodha Akbar (720p mkv version) and it looked STUNNING. I can only imagine how good blu-ray would be.
post #682 of 907
hey guys I just found you guys on google, and saw you guys were looking for a place to buy blu-rays in the US. Well other than those sites listed there is this site, www.saregamausa.com which is very good in quality and good with prices as well as many options with shipping. I think its definitely worth a look.

They have
Om Shanti Om-$21.99
Heyy Babyy-$23.99
Saawariya-$30.99
Sivaji-$33.99

I have the same question. Is there hindi audio?

I'm looking forward to slumdog millionare bluray as that's a must have.

I don't know why eros isn't releasing any more bluray movies. I just emailed them. You should all ask and maybe that will generate an answer from there end on why aren't they releasing more bluray: customerservice1@erosmultimedia.net

how would that help? The dvd encode would be of inferior quality.. converting it to bluray won't make any difference.

They need to create the bluray from the master.

Heyy Baby is up for pre order from amazon, thought it was being sold for quite some time now

it is unfortunate, that to watch a hindi movie in good SD quality, atleast you have to go up to bluray if available, as their SD are so abysmal quality.

This thread title reminds me: One of the things that has always amazed me is how persistently over-driven the soundtracks of most Bollywood films are (that I've seen). They almost always sound like they have been pushed to the level at which they distort. We had a TV station that played tons of bollywood films and it was a consistant signature of those films. When I go to our Little India (in my city) and there are bollywood movies playing...there it is again. I check out some bollywood movies on youtube...same distorted sound. I haven't seen this persistent issue anywhere else but Bollywood films, at least pre-90's bollywood films. I've always wondered about it and wondered "what's the deal?" Is someone
in the studio shouting at the engineers: "louder! Louder!"

(I'd think that newer releases are better in this regard...)
