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.
