Two bits of good news and one bad.   
Jul,25,2008
 

First the good news.

Folks!!! Its finally released! The DVD of TZP is out in the market!

I wanted to be totally sure before I spoke about it on my blog because there were too many false alarms in between. So today we went to Darsheel’s school and Darsheel’s principal Mrs Bajaj was kind enough to do the honors.

The other bit of good news is that Disney has decided to release the DVD in the U.S., U.K., Australia, New Zealand and Canada. I was very happy to know that they liked the film enough to want to distribute TZP in home entertainment for these 5 countries.

Now for the bad news…… and I know I am going to be slaughtered for this one. Disney has a lead time of at least 3 months. They want to do a mainstream release in these 5 markets. So while the DVD has released in India and outside India as well, in these 5 countries it will be a few more months before it comes out.

Now, before those of you living in these 5 countries kill me, please understand that I have no control over this. The only other option would be to not go ahead with Disney’s offer. But I felt that I would like the mainstream audiences in these places to also have the option of seeing this film. If I’m not mistaken this is probably a first for any Indian film except for Lagaan which was released by Columbia Tristar, but that was more because Sony TV India had originally bought the film. Sawaria which was also Sony I am assuming also got a mainstream release, but that was also produced by Sony. So I think this the first time that an Indian film has been picked up by a major distributor independently for a mainstream release.

More importantly, how many films are made on child care? So I want as many people as possible (no matter which part of the world they live in, including people who are not normally exposed to Indian Cinema) to get the chance to see this particular film.

My sincere apologies to those of you living in these 5 countries, and who have been waiting patiently for the DVD to come out.

I am dying to tell you what all in this DVD pack, but first y’all digest this info. Have worked really hard on this DVD and I sincerely hope y’all find it worth the wait.

Warmth.

Hi Aamir
Well TZP was an awesome movie and it is but natural to want your
kid to be good in whatever he/she takes up and in that rat race
we tend to overlook little things which actually may not be the
little ones fault. I think you are a very good person and
thankyou for bringing out such movies with a wonderful message.

looking forward to much more .

Radhika

I'm posting a little late (already 2 more post ahead). But i
couldn't help myself... You're apologizing because this other 5
countries will get the dvd a few months later, but i will be
lucky if i get my hands on it in a few years! Here, in
Southamerica (Argentina specifically), we don't get almost any
indian movie. I was lucky enough to come across fanaa in Austria
(you sound pretty good in german). so you have a big market
here, have you thought in doing something? i would love to find
your movies here
