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.

This is a comment on "Abhayaftii"s post. People in Europe dont
say Kino, when they mean films or movies. Kino means theatre or
cinema. But I'm not quite sure, if it's the same meaning in every
european country, but in Germany we say Kino and mean cinemas.

Hey aamir!
Firstly Congrats!!!!!!!!!
Tzb will fetch us an oscar, n we'll be the best in
sports(olympics) n entertainment!
tzb was a master peice in itself.
please google up epilepsy that indian kids suffer from. They r
beaten up while having seizures. No awarness is probably the
problem.
anyway i really wish u tons of luck...
ur 1 hero!!!!
love, x
Shenaz.

Dear Aamir, I have an interesting concept for a film that only
you can do in India, as only you in the industry have guts, and
creativity to do different stuff. If you like the concept, and
take it up, trust me, it will do a lot of good to India
(hopefully). In case you are keen i can discuss this with you at
your convenience on phone, in case you are travelling to New
Delhi in near future, we can meet for only 15 minutes. I want to
do this for India. I need no money, no name, no fame, just as a
service to my motherland which i know has potential but still not
there, getting there now, a bit slow though. If you are keen i
would love to discuss this with you. Something like this has not
been seen on Indian or Hollywood screen yet.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Warm Regards
Sharad Vats

I am writing from Dubai, UAE and was eagerly awaiting the release
of the TZP DVD. On my recent trip to India, I bought the
collectors' pack for Rs499 and it specifically mentioned Region:
Universal on the cover. But imagine my surprise when the DVD
couldn't be played on my DVD player in Dubai. I wrote to the GM
at T_Series, Mr Arun Kumar and he got back to me saying that the
DVDs can be watched only on a DVD player bought in India. A huge
disappointment for me. Now I have to find means and ways to get
T-series for misleading me with incorrect information and selling
me this dummy.

Greetings from 'down under' in Sydney!

Read TZP has been chosen as India's entry for the 2009 Oscars!

Good news to hear & well done! I'm sure it's going to be the
winner!

Kind regards
Diana
