Bollywood on Blu-Ray?? - Page 27

If they could try a few titles in an almost dead format (DVD-A) then they could do the same for a growing format (BD).

Yash Raj has DVD audio discs, I didnt know about it Which ones are available and where can they be bought from?

I first picked up the DVD-A of 'Dhoom:2'. The disc included some bonus tracks: multi-channel mixes of Halla Re (from Neal 'N' Nikki), Chand Sifarish (from Fanaa), Kajra Re (from Bunty Aur Babli), and Salaam Namaste (from... well, you know). The surround mix turned out to be tasteful rather than distracting.

So I ordered the other three DVD-A titles listed: 'Veer Zara', 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom', and 'Ta Ra Rum Pum'. The latter included four bonus tracks as well: Ke Raha Mera Dil (from Kabul Express), Mere Hath Me (from Fanaa), Chup Chup Ke (from Bunty Aur Babli), and My Dil Goes MMMM (from Salaam Namaste). All were good.

Considering those bonus tracks had three movies in common (Fanaa, Bunty Aur Babli, Salaam Namaste), I get the impression that those entire soundtracks were also mixed to discrete multi-channel, but never released on DVD-Audio. Too bad we only get a sampling of a couple of songs from each of those movies.

BTW, I bought them directly from Yash Raj, back when they sold through their website. They don't sell on-line any more, so I don't know where you can find them nowadays. Amazon? eBay? The local Indian video/CD shops have no idea what I'm taking about when I try to describe DVD-A.

Ah, so it is the french release then? I would guess mhafner must have seen it since he's from the area.. would be interested to see what his feedback is. Of course i wont be able to play it on my PS3 if its region B, but still want to know how good/bad of a release it is.

Good quality image and sound. Some minor issues with slightly messed up textures at times. I suspect DNR on the DI. Worth a purchase if you can play region B and know Hindi/Urdu or French.

Thanks for chiming in! Is the sound lossless? I do know Hindi but do not have a region b player..

Wondering what the big issue is releasing it in other markets if they already have gone through the mastering process for the French release..

Interestingly the details for the amazon release says All Regions! Though i have my doubts..

Sound is lossless. There is no big issue with other markets except none of the rights holders outside of France have decided to release it so far. It's about profit and the expectation that they can (not (yet)) make their money back.

Reg A Jodhaa Akbar is not available yet. There are rumors that it will be available soon. Of course pre-order from www.bollywoodblu-ray.com (or any other site) so you will be the first to get it.

Current release is Reg B, French only subs. Quality is close to excellent only second to Saawariya, better than OSO and Heyy Babyy. I think it is on par with Shivaji, Villu etc from Ayngaran.

Sorry. It is a typo. Should be Reg B French only subs. Anyway, Reg A JA should be available soon. You should be able to get it from bollywoodbluray.com (and other sites as well).

Feedback is coming in from the 4 new Eros BDs and it's not so good. Partner is upconverted SD, apparently. The others look more like HD but Saawariya or Jodhaa it ain't. And no lossless sound, just DD.

Wonderful news! My favourite Farhan Akhtar film. Now if they could only release his other films (Laksyaa, Don).

So is Yash Raj going Blu? It's still a painful wait for Yash Raj to do good blu ray transfers of their classics and release.

I'm thinking DDLJ, K3G, Kal Ho Naa Ho, etc, etc.
