Default Mahabharat (1988 TV Series) Blu Ray from Reliance Home Video

Just noticed this on the pre-orders section on Amazon India with release date listed as 15th Nov:

http://www.amazon.in/Mahabharata-Muk...739104&sr=1-35

No. of discs listed as 6 - which means roughly 15 episodes per disc - and the MRP is INR 7k...

Anyone knows whether this series was shot on film?

The number of discs should not worry you at all, since the majority of the footage is shot on SD videotape. The bigger question is, what advantage can they offer over the previously released DVD set? I suspect this will be more a matter of convenience than improvement in visual content. I doubt that lossless audio or true HD visuals (as opposed to upscaled or even plain 480i) are going to happen. Also blu-ray might last longer than the DVD's, if they are anything like Reliance's releases of Malgudi days which rotted in around a year after purchase.

Me too, let's calculate in this way

Mahabharat Total Episodes : 94
All Episodes Available on DVD : 19 DVDs
On Average, Episodes in 1 DVD : 5 Episodes
If DVD is Single Layer : 0.94GB Per Episode
If DVD is Dual Layer : 1.8GB Per Episode

As per Amazon listing, it has 6 Blu-rays.
Episodes per Blu-ray : 14-15
If Blu-ray is Single Layer : 1.6GB Per Episode
If Blu-ray is Dual Layer : 3.3GB Per Episode (which seems not good)

And there is no possibility for its release by November 15. Definitely they will extend the date for it (as usual).
But the small images on the back of DVD color made me excited. Looks like color corrected and re-mastered

Few Blu-rays available FOR EXCHANGE, Contact if you are interested in these titles.
