      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    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 :)

    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 mov...

    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.

    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!
