Instead of the VP debate, I'm sitting here watching the International Channel. There's a show on about a young, famous director from India. They keep showing clips from his films. I got to be thinking... it'd be very cool to actually own one of these on DVD. I'm aware that there are, for example, very crappy editions of the Apu trilogy on disc. I've seen those films and enjoyed them, but they're not what I'm thinking about. I'd love to own one of the 10000 musicals they make every year. Preferably, something less than 5 years old or so. It'd be great to have a solid example of modern Indian cinema in my collection. Questions: have any of these been released over here in region 1? If there aren't any R1 versions, anyone know of a reputable place to order other region releases of these online? Hmmm... actually, I bet India uses PAL like the UK, so that would be an issue for me, too. Finally -- anyone have recommendations of particularly good films that shouldn't be missed?
