I recently ordered for the Dangal blu-ray, and having watched the extras, I can confirm yes, they have English subtitles. This is a rarity in Bollywood blu-rays and must be appreciated (even most boutique studios like Criterion or Arrow don't have them). There is a 45min making of and another section called "Behind the Scenes" essentially consists of some extended segments which were cut for editing reasons in the Making of. Separate song menu and a Hindi descriptive audio track for the blind is included.

IIRC, the film defaults to a Dolby Digital track, so you will need to shift to Dolby Atmos in the setup menu to access that for the film (if you don't have an Atmos setup, it will give you 7.1 Dolby TrueHD). Given the limitations of the film shoot (earthy theme, outdoor shoot with available light), the blu-ray looks very good, better than what I was expecting from the screenshots.

It is unbelievable that these idiots are still adding a lossy track, let alone actually making that track the default. Typical of Indins to reduce everything to the lowest common denominator.

It's a legacy from when people had older blu-ray players some of which did not support TrueHD or AVR's without HDMI inputs that can take lossless surround audio. And from what I understand, unlike DTS-HD MA which has a lossy DTS core embedded, a Dolby TrueHD surround track does not have a lossy core that can be transmitted via TOSlink or whatever digital audio cable, and so a separate lossy track is required.
This used to be the case even with some of the older Warner releases with TrueHD, like Batman, Tango & Cash, Matrix etc In fact there the movie used to play by default when you inserted the blu-ray, and you had to manually bring up the menu to access the TrueHD track.

No idea what these older blu-ray players are. I have a Sony cheapo player and the sound works for me. I got many BDs with Dolby TrueHD too.

This is not exactly true. All blu-rays with TrueHD audio also have a hidden AC3 track embedded/attached along with the TrueHD audio. This has been mandatory from day one. Therefore, there is absolutely no real justification to include a separate Dolby Digital track on TrueHD blu-rays. Just sheer waste of space. By the way, many Bollywood blu-rays have a Dolby Digital track even on blu-rays with DTS-HD MA. As for defaulting to the lossy track, now that, is just plain criminal.

PS: I had written an extensive post explaining in detail how this works. But it failed to post as I had taken a long time to write it and I ended up getting some sort of 'timed out cookie error'. And I just did not have the energy or inclination to rewrite the whole post again.

Clarification: TrueHD does not need the hidden [sub] embedded/attached AC3 track to work. But the AC3 track is mandated by Dolby to be included on all TrueHD blu-rays for backward compatibility.

So basically, when I play my BDs that have TrueHD (e.g. Legend of Zorro) I am actually listening to the AC3 is what you are saying

Only if your receiver is not capable of decoding the TrueHD component.

I used the setup menu and set Dolby Atmos and subtitles on, and it plays just fine.

Sadly, this movie has the original Intermission intertitle. It plays well without an intermission, though. The intermission happens after the dad drops his daughter off at the International school.

Hey guys,

Just FYI, Disney will be releasing Dangal on Blu-ray in Japan on September 5th, 2018:



Since this is only a Japanese domestic Blu-ray distributed by Disney, I would not necessarily expect Dolby Atmos audio, but the video encoding should be fantastic. Unfortunately, it will only have Japanese subtitles, but it should have the film's original Hindi audio, probably as DTS-HD MA 5.1 and LPCM 2.0 if past releases are anything to go by.

I'd say Dangal looks very good even on the Indian release, so far as encoding goes.

NOVA Media (Korea) has also released an edition. Note that extras on Korean releases are not usually English subtitled.
