I got my copy of DDLJ over the weekend. The video quality i believe is as good as it can get. There are some soft shots but i feel they are inherent to the photography and not the transfer. Other than that, this is as beautiful as i have seen this movie till date, the colors are very realistic looking and there appears to be no filtering/DNR to my eyes.
One note of caution though, the soundtrack is in DTS/DD and does not have the newer codecs(not that it matters too much IMHO). Also the soundtrack seems to suddenly go hot when the songs come in. I was listening to it through my tv speakers instead of my HT so YMMV.
Also the YashRaj animation or the DDLJ Logo animation(comes when you start up the disc) has horrible pixelization.. so i was really worried when i saw it. But once the movie started it's all a non issue.
Overall very happy with the purchase, would certainly recommend this! I'll now be able to put away the crappy dvd i got from India that in all its fanciness has a horrible pq even by dvd standards.
