    I have a standard 16:9 screen and when watching Monsoon Wedding I had to watch it in 4:3 mode with big black borders on all four sides. This is because the subtitles are put at the bottom below the picture and if you zoom in the non-anamorphic pictures they will not be visible.

    This is not of very high quality and actually disappointing.

    Why a high def. master was not created in this day and age is a mystery to me.

    It should have been done, especially for such a good film.

    Good thing you added DTS, but without a great video transfer, it seems like you went only half way.
