India/Bollywood Sivaji the 1st Tamil Blu-ray with Scope friendly subtitles

The first Tamil blu-ray Sivaji is out. This is the fourth blu-ray from India. And the first from South India.
http://www.ayngaran.com/bluray.php

Specs: VIDEO: 1080p High Definition 16x9 - 2.35:1 AVC-4
AUDIO 1: PCM Uncompressed Tamil 5.1 (48 kHz/24-bit) 6.4Mbps
AUDIO 2: Dolby Digital Tamil 5.1 448Kbps
SUBTITLES: New and Improved English Subtitles

From what I have read previously, the subtitles are zoomers and CIH/Scope friendly, i.e. placed within the picture frame. (India has set a good example in this regard for Hollywood)
Wish that blu-ray is most faithful to the theater release...

Rajnikanth! OMG! I've only seen one of his movies (CHANDRAMUKI), and a Japanese remake of one his movies (NATTU), but we're talking a ham the size of an Airbus here. I'll have to pick this one up to keep my copy of POSTAL company...definitely recommended for anyone who likes their masala shamelessly corny.

Yes, This is a highly acclaimed movie in South India. It is the first South Indian movie (not Bollywood) to get into UK top 10. And also it is the highest grossing Indian movie in 2007.

I have received my copy of blu-ray Sivaji from Ayngaran, UK. It is 17 pounds. It came with the shrink wrap in a bubble envelop.

Thanks Ayngaran.

Haven't watched yet. Will post comments later.

Default Sivaji: The Boss (India)



Region-free, English-friendly.

Sanjay Ram:
Quote:
The unexplained phenomena of Rajnikanthís magic takes over as soon as the star comes on screen and the three odd hours just zip by.

The story is not at the least poles apart from all those already told. Sivaji (Rajnikanth), an NRI from the US, decides to set up a medical college in Chennai. With the money to set it up he seeks Adi Kesavnís (Suman) help. Realizing Sivaji would turn to being a competitor, Adi does everything in his capacity to not let Sivaji succeed. Undettered by the resistance, Sivaji gets the initial construction going, by doing what he hates most, bribing government officials.

While his work is taking its course, his uncle (Vivek) and parents (Manivannan and Vadivukkarasi) pester him to find a suitable wife. Thatís when Tamilazharasi (Shriya Saran) walks into his life, soon enough the initial resistance culminates into marriage.

Although family life is smooth sailing, bureaucratic pressures and Adiís influences, caused Sivaji's dream project to come to a stand still. What follows is his struggle to defeat all evil and ensure his dream of seeing a bright and prosperous nation turns to reality (The beauty is in the how).

Many parts of the story have already been told many a times but it is for the first time all of it has been woven to create one brilliant plot. While the plot tackles the problem of education, corruption and bureaucracy; it is the knit of the various characters that is most intriguing. The creation of each of the characters is complete. There is background, direction and meaning to each of them, no character is created in futility.

Moreover the crisp dialogues and the infamous one liners end up making you shout...with glee. Each line is ingeniously crafted to address the societal condition and the various elements Sivaji is out to tackle. References of his past works and Tamil cinema legend Sivaji Ganesan further create the impact and makes you reminisce.

Furthermore the panoramic view that is visible on screen enhances the experience a million fold. The camerawork is slick and the editing even better. Each shot is well crafted and the camera alternates to show the actions from every possible angle. Clearly enough, music is the integral part of the film and its placement adds volume and depth to each action, punch and dialogue.

Even though the film is extravagant and overindulgent, it isn't loud. It is the treatment that separates this film from the rest. The styling of the characters is first rate. While all is good, it is the graphics that seem a tad crude at times.

Though the tale is well told, this film fails to transcend the language barrier. The lack of subtitles in certain centers holds you back from thoroughly getting immersed in the film. If you understand Tamil, find yourself translating word for word to your friends beside you who donít.

The icing on this scrumptious cake is watching Rajnikanth set the screen on fire in each scene. His acting, body language and dialogue delivery has your jaw hanging in awe. Saran proves her mettle yet again, she essays her character with sincerity (canít wait to see her in Awarapan). Manivannan, Vadivukkarasi, Suman and Padmanabhan perform their roles extremely well. Vivekís comic timing and acting is fantastic as well.

Everything working in its favor, it is but obvious the film is a box office diamond. All you need to do is keep the calculator out to keep adding the numbers. Sadly though, the business could have been far more only if all the prints in the Bombay circuit and other territories carried subtitles.

The enormity of the wave the film hits you with is unequaled. Irrespective of the fact whether you understand the language or not, the film positively cannot be missed. Surf the wave called Sivaji: The Boss.

Question, seeing the UK rating symbol on the release, is this really a region C Indian import or a British release?

These are actually manufactured in the UK but marketed as Region-C (they are region-free). From what I was able to find, it appears that the company producer is operating as Tai Seng does in the US.

Default Sivaji Blu

I do not think it is available in any stores in India. I would just order it from Ayngaran e-store: http://eshop.ayngaran.com/. The BD costs 20 British Pounds with shipping. Region CODE: All regions. Good luck. Its good to see Indian movies on Blu Ray. Very colorful indeed.

Try these. They ship to India but it's frustrating when India doesn't get Indian BLUs and DVDs.

Surely, it is frustrating... Also it is painfully frustrating the slow release rate of Indian blu-rays.
Wish that blu-ray is most faithful to the theater release...
