I found this print to be better. Can someone compare it with blu-ray? Also it doesn't have any watermark.

https://spuul.com/videos/285-hum-aapke-hain-koun


Note: That site has other movies like AAA in HD, which looks excellent. Too bad the audio quality is poor.

right off the bat, not having a ULTRA watermark definitely helps.

But the PQ is still 720p at most and lot of "jerky" movement on playback. This might actually not be 24 fps or some compression issues.

Ultra HAHK BRD is much better in just PQ alone. Its a true 1080p. As good as catalog title PQ looks.

I wont even bother commenting on AQ. I think you already know that.

And for evergreen, classic musical like HAHK that has Raam-Lakshman duo's best work ever, AQ can never ever be compromised.

Thanks for confirming. I played it on a 20" screen so was doubting it and I was right. And for the audio, almost most of the free movies that I played are of bad quality. Few of them have bad mix as well which makes me believe that they forgot to use the center channel during the encoding process.

I myself picked up the 'last' HAHK BRD recently. I have a 23" inch LED HDTV myself. My eyes are literally focused on OLED for some time now!. Been saving up for that 65"+ as the prices for OLED is dropping fast. Pretty soon, this will be available below $2999.

When you get to 60"+, every little shortcoming of Indian BRD will be exposed. A reasons I double downed on all classic german REM BRDs. Zee Cinema wont be Full HD anytime soon and not everyone have Z Cinema.

If you can collect all classic bollywood BRD titles, I say collect them now. Especially HAHK, AAA, DDLJ.....etc etc. The way Bollywood is going, 10 yrs from now, everything will be streamed with no latest hard media availability (BRD or 4k BRD). They are losing money on BRD authoring.

Picture Quality may not suffer necessarily but Audio Quality will definitely suffer as standards are low for Audio authoring. I cannot imagine watching DEVDAS (2002) in stereo despite excellent Full HD PQ streaming. I hope you got my point.

Yep. I did make a list of movies that I have to purchase. Should start collecting them in batches as it would be difficult to afford them all at once. Also I watch Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood movies, so the list is kinda big and takes more time and effort to find them and purchase.

That is a pretty broad statement; how or where are the stats that show that they are losing money on BRD authoring? I'm curious to see these economics too.

Reliance has even started releasing the not-so-famous-artsy-type movies that would sometimes not even see a decent DVD release. If at all I can see an upward trend on BD.

WRT streaming, I've never been a fan to be honest. While people are gunning for better PQ, they forego the audio detail. It completely overrides having a home theatre.

I agree - I've noticed an uptick in Bollywood blu-ray releases in the last year- what I don't quite understand is how did India so quickly shift from VHS to DVD but struggling to go from DVD to Blu-ray? I do think Bollywood will get into 4K/HDR though by next year....but releases will be reserved for the very best...Streaming can never catch up with physical media and physical media won't become obsolete in my opinion - kind-of similar to how everyone said newspapers and magazines and books will be a thing of the past.

Yeah and just like it happened for BD, some lame movie like saawariya would debut in 4K.

You missed a step! India went from VHS to VCD first - and then DVD. I recall a time when a whole load of films were only available on VCD, and not DVD. I guess the DVDs picked up when people realised you could fit 6 films on one DVD!!

Iím really considering getting HAKHK on Blu Ray all the screen shots look great and crystal clear (of course) I bought the EROS DVD on eBay about 2 years ago but was shocked and annoyed at how unclear and how much motion blur there was on the DVD not to mention the subtitles not inline so I had no choice to throw it away as I couldnít watch even 5 mins of the rubbish EROS made. I want to is it worth a buy especially being one of the best Family Films in Bollywood. Not only that does the movie go straight to the menu or movie straight away? I love my Bollywood Blu Rayís to go straight to the menu rather that the film because if you just want to watch and listen to the songs you can also itís easy to choose particular scene of the if you turn it off and want to watch it later on in the day or night or maybe the next day. Please send screen shots of the menu if you are able to would be great help. Thank You
