Default 'Om Shanti Om' -- pre-release buzz

Okay, so it's not Paramount going Blu. But leading Bollywood indie Eros Entertainment has jumped into high-def with its first Blu-ray exclusive title, the international hit 'Om Shanti Om'

Supplements include only trailers. Tech specs are 1080p video, and audio still TBA.

Retail is $24.95, and street date coming up fast -- January 22, 2008.

[EDIT: EROS NOW SAYS THIS RELEASE WILL *NOT* BE COMING TO BLU-RAY:

I'm new posting to this site, but i read your reviews ALL the time!

This is really interesting news. looks like i really need to get a bluray player now! i have an HD player at the moment, but with all the current news, it's only a matter of time before HD becomes obsolete.

Eros going Bluray is awesome.

This is absolutely awesome news!! I've already pre-ordered Om Shanti Om on Amazon. I'm sure it will be an amazing transfer, given that it's such a recent movie. Can't wait for High Def Digest to review it!!
I really hope some catalog titles start coming out (Sholay, Qurbani, Khal Nayak, Devdas, Disco Dancer etc). I hope the studios completely restore and remaster any and all older titles that may come to Blu-ray. Enjoying the beauty of Bollywood cinema the way it was meant to be.
Wishing for some, Songs Only, Bollywood Blu-rays to come out; especially Madhuri Dixit's dances!!!

Besides this and Sawariyaa are there any other Bollywood films currently on or scheduled to be released on Blu in any region?

And are these going to be readily available, like in Best Buy and Wal-Mart?

I may have to rent one of the new Indian movies. I haven't watched one since the VHS days.

I really doubt that but who knows right now. Even the regular sources like Indian video shops may not carry them. My uncle has a shop in Vancouver, I'll ask him soon.

My wife is all over this movie but I dont want to buy this...she's already playing a bootleg way too often and the 15 minute music scene grates on me!

Im in Vancouver as well but I can't picture the local shops being able to beat amazon $17.95 price. It was actually part of the 2 for 1 bogo at amazon. Even though it wasnt in their main list when you add it into the card it then said it was bogo and to pick one. I had it in my cart but wasnt sure I wanted this film and when I tried later the bogo sale was over.
