    Bollywood Queen DVD Review
    SRP: £15.99


    The 1.85:1 anamorphic print is a first class effort. Colour plays a central part in the story, with vivid, surreal and slightly trippy sequences when the characters burst into song. In true Bollywood style these dance numbers are full of dazzlingly bright primary colours. These are all perfectly reproduced with no signs of blocking, smearing or enhancement. Skin tones are neutral and balanced except in some of the dance sequences when they take on a warm golden glow. Shadows are convincingly dark, and hold onto their details well. All in all a first rate picture.

    The score is an interesting fusion of Eastern music with R&B and pop rock. While not my scene my teenage daughter was tapping her toes throughout. The soundtrack is again well produced. The 5.1 DD mix is beautifully balanced with the soft rock enthusiastically pumped out of all the speakers in your setup, even your sub! Dialogue is clear, and while atmosphere is lacking the whole thing hangs together very well.
    Bollywood Queen Sound


    A few cast and crew interviews and 10 minutes of behind the scenes features. All are flimsy and forgettable.

    This light romantic musical is childish fluff. Shakespeare wrote it better, and the Bee Gees sung it better. It feels like the Children's Film Foundation Saturday morning movie I used to watch in the 70's, only bad.
    Suggested retail price when reviewed: £15.99
