Slumdog Millionaire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Shot with a combination of film and video cameras, Slumdog Millionaire comes to Blu- ray with its distinctively stylized appearance intact. It's a unique looking movie with an abundance of moody, almost monochromatic photography, designed to depict the seemingly infinite mass of Mumbai residents in a style that never glamorizes their suffering. As a matter of fact, director of photography Anthony Dod Mantle's rich photography was honored with the Academy Award for achievement in cinematography just last month. Given the film's pedigree and award recognition, Fox has given Slumdog Millionaire a high bitrate AVC Mpeg-4 1080p encode, in the film's original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1, that captures the movie's groundbreaking style to perfection.

Slumdog Millionaire isn't a traditionally "pretty" film, rather, it's a gritty realization of the realities of slum life in India. Regardless, the film's unique landscapes and industrial locations take on a picturesque quality that becomes more and more visually appealing as the film unfolds, in spite of its desolate nature. The movie maintains a brownish color scheme throughout with washed out colors and intentionally tweaked contrast levels. Detail isn't particularly great throughout the film, but does occasionally reveal finer elements in the photography. Fortunately, the film is never hindered by edge enhancement, excessive digital noise reduction or other digital annoyances. Slumdog Millionaire is fully present in all of its unwashed and gritty glory on Blu-ray; the film is completely accurate to its intended look and is highly recommended.


Slumdog Millionaire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Slumdog Millionaire features a bizarre 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track, mixing English and Hindi dialogue, that serves as a lively representation of the bustling streets of the slums of Mumbai. The film's unique sound design was honored with an Academy Award in 2008 and has been faithfully reproduced on this Blu-ray release. As the film flashes between scenes of Jamal's childhood, incarceration and game show appearance, the soundtrack echoes the aural signature of each locale, creating a swirling surround experience that never fails to entice. I was very impressed with the film's use of discreet surround effects in the Mumbai scenes; the effects help to create a sense of heightened reality that infuses realism with sonic exaggeration.

My favorite aspect of the soundtrack to Slumdog Millionaire is its Academy Award winning score from Indian composer A.R. Rahman; it's a lively and raucous collection of eclectic Indian tunes that add a layer of authenticity to each scene, while remaining melodic and enticingly rhythmic. The score is beautifully presented on this Blu-ray release, practically exploding from the soundstage and dominating all 5.1 channels. Dialogue is crisply presented, though the cast's thick Indian accents may prove to be problematic for some viewers. Ultimately, Slumdog Millionaire's audio presentation manages to be both exciting and subtle when required, dutifully reproducing the award-winning sonic elements of this deserving production. Highly recommended!
