Seldom Gets Better Than This.......

Akira Kurosawa - 5 DVDs together at this price!!!!!! Nothing can get better than this. I actually got them a month back from Flipkart even cheaper.....just 600 bucks.

But that hardly matters...for the aficionados price has seldom been an issue. People would willingly shell out double the original price for this gem of a collection.

As usual superb Flipkart service......handed over to me in 2 days flat. Packed with great care....elements-proof....everything in perfect order. Great work and thanks really.

Enlighten does a great job with the prints. Quite clear video with decent audio. From...

Enlighten does a great job with the prints. Quite clear video with decent audio. From what I have seen of the original prints elsewhere, these digitally remastered prints are much better. Audio fluctuates very occasionally but I guess that's acceptable compared to the original prints or what's left of them. However there's a better digitally remastered Blue-ray version (and it's DVD copy) of "Seven Samurai" available on Flipkart itself which is better than the one in this box.

Overall a great tribute compilation...won't go to the length of discussing the legendary Kurosawa here, that's best left to the viewers. Excellent overall quality of the entire set and needless to say excellent competitive pricing by Flipkart.

Amazing stuff....get this and make this your own. You won't regret it.

Spoken language switch to Japanese would have made this a must buy

Note: My rating is only for the company which mastered the movies for this particular collection. Kurosawa is beyond ratings :)

Great collection, but the spoken language in this set is English (mentioned here). This has stopped me from buying this.
Though I do not understand Japanese, I feel it is better to watch a movie in its native tongue (original), with English subs.
The DVD makers could have easily added an option to switch spoken language in the DVD.

For any one interested in the movies go for it, all of them are excellent classic movies, which have no expiry dates and never fails...

Great set of movies: 5 star for them, but for non availability of language switch 0 stars.

Must own for Kurosawa fans

A great DVD set of 5 of his illustrious works. Anybody who love his works or want to explore his cinema should consider buying this. When I bought this, the collection had the Macbeth adaptation Throne of Blood, instead of Drunken Angel. My favorite of the lot is High and Low, yes even over Seven Samurai. Good video and sound quality. Audio is Japanese, with English subs. The DVDs have one project film each made by famous FTII alumni as bonus material.

Superb Collection Of Kurosawa Classics!

The is a superb collection of Kurosawa movies..
Very good for someone new to Japanese cinema..
Delivery from Flipkart was as usual fast and hassle-free..

At Rs 500 this boxset is a steal for any cinema buff!

Now im waiting for another Kurosawa boxset by Palador with his other classics like Rashomon,Ikiru,Sanjuro,The Hidden Fortress and Ran..
That would also be a first day buy for me!

Thanks a ton Flipkart!

Amazing Collection

The first movie I've picked from box-set is 'Seven Samurai' (with a little help from Wikipedia after the director's bio). What a CLASSIC it is. Though we need a lot of patience & time, still this movie deserves a place in every movie-buffs heart. Kikuchiyo is my fav from this movie. I like his madness. Eager to watch other 4 movies.

Thank you Flipkart for delivering the goods on time as usual. You guys are rocking!
