Bio (7 text screens)
Not as bad as the first two CalcuttaWeb DVDs that we reviewed (Jana Aranya and The King of Diamonds), but, of course, far from perfect. A stable image (no flick on bottom indicating bootlegged from Video), nice clean, although occasionally inaccurate, subtitles. The image is washed-out , a shade dark, but much sharper than the other 2 with very minimal scratches and damage showing. This is the only available DVD version of this entertaining film, but we hope another comes along soon. out of
