    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 t...

    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 :)

    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 mov...

    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!
