It's on preorder at Flipkart with an early April release.

The bad news is that its manufactured by Shermaroo, which means the obnoxious watermark will be present.

Why does Shemaroo distribute all of Vidya's films on BD! (Ishqiya, Dirty Picture, Kahaani)

One more blu-ray down the drain of Shamearoo. I guess I need to catch this in the theater before it's too late.

Personally I don't care two hoots for 'The Dirty Picture' but not being able to have 'Ishqiya' on blu-ray is a real shame.

Be it Shamearoo or Shemaroo, atleast these guys still releasing movies on blu ray. Reliance and Eros seem to have conveniently forgotten that there is a home video format called blu ray. No news of Rockstar or Agneepath or Don 2. I think they are waiting for their favourite star , Akshay Kumar's Housefull 2 before they start releasing anything else on blu ray.

the reasons (if any) for the watermark being there are unacceptable but its quite small compared to what they do on dvd and not that distracting. IMHO, not buying quality films because of it is illogical, especially movies like Kahaani and Ishqiya.

The watermark does take away from the viewing in some strange way. I would never buy a movie on Blu-ray with a watermark.

if there were other options I would understand, but if it comes down to having a movie you like and not having it at all, it seems a little excessive to me. Especially when the rest of the encode is fine (I have only seen 2-3 shemaroo blus and they are technically proficient except for the watermark issue).

The owner of SHEMAROO must be a huge fan of Vidya Balan
Can we please have the Blu-ray release on the same day as DVD. I don't like waiting.

Oh no!!!!

Very disheartening to even imagine perhaps the year's most outstanding movie going to docks by the watermark. I doubt but if anyone from shemaroo is reading this, but if they are, "please dont do this" is all i have to say.

Another Shemaroo whining on the famous watermark!

If you don't like it don't buy the Blu-Ray or Rent it. Yes, the watermark is annoying but Shemaroo isn't going stop placing it.

I don't really mind the watermark because Shemaroo makes up for it with outputting a high quality Blu-Ray.

Just watched this. Exquisite movie that really shows off how dexterous today's Bollywood has become. I noticed the watermark about halfway through and was perturbed for a moment but since I needed to read subtitles anyway it wasn't as distracting as it could have been. This was a top notch bluray production by any standard.

If anyone has any other recommendations based on this one I would LOVE to explore the variety of Bollywood a bit more. I'm getting tired of sharukh khan love stories lol.

Ugly by Anurag Kashyap is a very good neo-noir.

Although, I didn't care for it Detective Byomkesh Bakshi! is a non-stereotype pulp detective thriller that might grab your fancy.
Piku was a very well-made funny heart-warmer about the relationship between an aged hypochondriac and his suffering daughter.
Dum Laga ke Haisha was a sweet low-key social+rom-com set in a small town where an illiterate guy with an inferiority complex is married off to a plump graduate girl.
If HD is not an absolute necessity there's a fantastic bleak and brutal crime drama called Titli, which for my money was the best Hindi film of last year. Available as a 2-DVD special edition.
If you're not hung up on Hindi films also check out this excellent humorous Tamil heist caper called Soodhu Kavvum.

Didn't like Detective Byomkesh Bakshi even though I am a fan of Dibakar. I felt he just lost it terms of the script, storytelling and direction.

Loved the other two you suggested

@infiniteCR, try Johnny Gaddar. No BD yet, but a truly good movie.

Thank you ravenus and anibap. Also interested in Piku, I had seen that one at amazon with Irfan Khan and couldn't decide from the reviews if it was going to be ok or not. I will definitely pick it up now. I know its not part of this subject, but at that time I also picked up PK and Fanaa with Amir Khan that I look forward to watching. Think I also got one called Vinglish.


I have some more shopping to go do thanks to you fellows. Thanks


As I watch them all, I promise to find the right threads as well.
