The Music Room

 (1958)

The Music Room Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Biswambhar Roy is a zamindar (landlord) and the last of his kind. With the title, he has none of the perquisites, inheriting diminishing lands that are being eroded by the neighbouring river. But he must maintain the lifestyle of his heritage. This ostentation is most apparent in the grandest room of his mansion, the music room. Here he inports the finest musicians and dancers to perform, and invites the area's most important commoners. His wife's entreaties to control spending are ignored, and the puberty party he throws for his son bring him down to the last few sacks of family jewels. Then, struck by tragedy, he locks the music room and slips into lethargy - until a final grand soiree consumes the last of his funds.

For more about The Music Room and the The Music Room Blu-ray release, see the The Music Room Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Chhabi Biswas, Padmadevi, Pinaki Sengupta

The Music Room Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Satyajit Ray's The Music Room arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 4K Datacine from an original 35mm fine-grain master positive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's Phoenix system was used for small dirt, grain, noise reduction, and scratches.

Telecine supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Color correction: Gregg Garvin/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles."

Considering the fact that the original camera negative of The Music Room was destroyed (though a second-generation fine-grain master positive was made directly from it), the quality of the high-definition transfer Criterion has used for this Blu-ray release is indeed very impressive. Detail is consistently strong, clarity very good throughout the entire film, and contrast levels well balanced. Color reproduction is also very convincing -- the blacks are rich but not boosted, while the grays and whites are stable and looking fresh. Edge-enhancement is not an issue of concern. There are only a few scenes in the film where extremely mild traces of sharpening are visible. There are no traces of heavy denoising either. Naturally, grain is prominent, though not always evenly distributed and well resolved. There are various small frame transition issues -- skips, jumps, etc., -- but none of them are overly distracting. Small scratches and cuts are also visible, but it is obvious that they could not be removed completely without affecting the integrity of the image. All in all, this is a strong, very convincing presentation that does the film justice. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Music Room Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Bengali LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the original 35mm soundtrack print. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

I noticed some very small dynamic fluctuations, mostly during the performances in the music room, but I assume that they are inherited from the soundtrack print. On the other hand, the dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow. There are no distortions, pops, or annoying hiss either. The English subtitles are excellent and easy to read.
