Be careful if you are planning to invest. You will only lose money releasing movies in any South Indian languages. And rule #1, never trust your money with others in Indian movie business. Telling you with experience. They will tell you rosy words before you invest and once they have your cash, they will say internet and priracy is hurting us.

Telling you because we folded iDreamDVD few years back. BTW, I live in VA too :-).

Bring me WATER on bluray!
post #728 of 907
hey everyone i just found this this thread and am very happy that it exists, i was thinking about starting one if it didn't.

just wanted to ask what everyone's favorite HD bollywood movie is? So far i've only been able to experience bollywood blurays from mkv downloads, hopefully that will change in the near future. Someone earlier in the thread made mention that his local walmart had copies of Om Shanti Om in Bluray. This boggles my mind. I'm up in Canada here and if I ever walked into Wallmart here and saw a bollywood bluray (let alone bollywood DVD), i think i'd pass out

For me, from what i've seen so far, the picture quality seems to be improving. I saw Jodhaa Akbar in theaters and really enjoyed the film, which had a great presentation on celluloid. I was not disappointed by the mkv version, by far it is the sharpest, cleanest transfer i've seen which does the visuals justice for the movie. I hope the movie become available for distribution in north america soon.

Next to that I would count Sawaariya as a beautiful beautiful transfer, crisp, sharp and clean, vibrant colours, but i do not think it is a very enjoyable film. I would say Om Shanti Om is next in terms of quality, but seems a bit soft compared to the previous two; nonetheless much better than the dvd version which itself is a very good transfer to begin.

Was wondering if people with the real blurays could voice their opinion on what their favorite bollywood blurays are and whether the quality level is going up with each new release.

I don't think i can pick a favorite yet cuz only 3 bollywood blurays are out so far: My list is based on PQ wise:

1> Sawaariya
2> Om Shanti Om
3> Heyy Babyy

I own all three of them and will also buy Chandi chowk to china if it comes out on bluray next month.

4 x Bollywood and 1 South Indian movie are available on blu-ray.

Both Jodhaa Akbar (Bollywood) and Sivaji (Ayngaran - South Indian studio) are very good PQ very close to saawariya.

I live close to a WalMart Superstore in Scarborough (Ontario) and they do carry quite a lot of Bollywood titles on DVD......and very cheap (roughly around $8 each), and the one I went to had a few copies of Hey Baby and Om Shanti Om on Blu, both for around $18.97 each.
I have picked up OSO but haven't had a chance to look at it as yet.

blu-rays. $18 canadian works out to about $14USD at today's exchange.

There's also a surge in number of concert and movie disks in BD in asian chinese malls. The chinese BD's are much more expensive, between CDN35-60, but there's about 30 distinct titles.

I picked up IpMan and RedCliff from a mall in markham.

Thanks for the good news. Looking forward to these releases.

Any news from Yash Raj? I am disappointed with Yash Raj blu-ray progress since they have so many excellent titles for blu-ray release.

I heard that New York from Yash Raj was shot in HD so I'm hoping this movie will come out in bluray.
