The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

 (2011)

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

For a disparate group of English pensioners, retirement takes an unconventional turn when they abandon their homeland, enticed by advertisements for THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, a seemingly luxurious sanctuary for “the elderly and beautiful” in Jaipur, India. On arrival, they discover that the hotel falls somewhat short of the romantic idyll promised in the brochure, but they are gradually won over by the ever-optimistic young manager Sonny, and tentatively embark on a new adventure, finding that life can begin again when you let go of the past.

For more about The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Blu-ray release, see the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

"Nothing can prepare the uninitiated for this riot of noise and color," says Judi Dench of India at one point in the film, and that's a pretty good summation of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel's Blu-ray presentation as well. 20th Century Fox's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is true to the rather grainy 35mm source material—there's been no DNR smearing here, no visible edge enhancement either—and the image does frequently burst with the lively color of Hindustan. The turquoises and pinks and intense greens of shanty-like local homes and storefronts. The vivid purple of saris. The burnished orange of marigolds in heaps. Once the film leaves dreary old grey/blue England, the palette changes immediately, with a warm cast, punchy colors, and creamy highlights. Black levels are as dense as they need to be and contrast is spot on, carving out a picture with plenty of dimensional presence. The thickness of the grain in the film stock somewhat limits clarity at times, but the image still displays a good deal of fine, high definition detail, particularly visible in facial and clothing textures. Some of the grain in the darker sequences has a blue speckled quality, but I didn't spot any overt compression or authoring issues. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel looks wonderful.


The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The hectic clamor of Indian streets is convincingly reproduced in the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which, if not quite a "riot of noise," at least offers carefully considered sound design and a good sense of immersion. Far from front-heavy, the mix extends to all six speakers—yes, there are a few instances of mild but appreciable subwoofer engagement—and the rears often come alive with environmental ambience and cross- channel effects. The tweeting and fluttering of birds and the buzzing of insects. Tuk-tuks zooming between channels. The rapid chug of a train. The "storm of car horns and vendors," as Dench's character puts it. Backing up the ongoing drama is a fantastic, locally-inflected score by Thomas Newman, the multiple Emmy and Grammy award-winning composer who's probably best known for his work on The Shawshank Redemption and American Beauty. The music is rich and layered and clear, emerging from all sides. Throughout the film, dialogue is consistently balanced and easy to understand, even in the craziest thoroughfares and marketplaces. For those that might need or want them, the disc also includes a generous array of dub and subtitle options.
