Sony Wins The DVD war?

Has Sony finally won the much known DVD war? Today, Toshiba announced that it is dropping the high-definition DVD battle and hence will stop production of its HD DVD players and recorders. And this may signal a victory for Sony's Blu-ray format. Recently Warner Bros', WalMart, UK retailer Woolworths US chain Best Buy, and US online retailer Netflix have backed Sony's Blu-ray format and hence could have forced Toshiba into it's decision.
Blu-ray’s was backed by Sony and Philips while HD DVD was baked by Toshiba and Hitachi. This may be good news for consumers in that they have only one format to choose from, but it will also make consumers that bought the HD DVD players anger, since they will have less choice of films to watch on their player. What do you think?

Movie Synopsis:
Jodhaa Akbar is a love story between the Mughal emperor, Akbar (Hrithik Roshan), and a Rajput princess, Jodhaa (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) during the sixteenth century. With great power and balance of strenght and wit, Emperor Akbar soon extended his empire to extend from Afghanistan to the Bay of Bengal, and from the Himalayas to the Godavari River. And on the way made friends with the Rajputs, the most belligerent Hindus. But unware of the storm that was going to be brought into his life when he married Jodhaa, Rajput princess. Which started Akbar on the new adventure of his life, the adventure of true love.
Movie Review:
Another great film from Ashutosh, following his previous successful movies like Swades and Lagaan. This is Ashutosh's biggest film so far with a strong star cast, a well written screenplay and great music by the master musician AR Rahman.

The movie contains many great scene and interactions between the protagonist couple. Both Hrithik and Aishwarya are perfect for the role Akbar and Jodhaa respectively. This may be the most Some memorable scenes includes the sword fight between the couple, when Akbar catches Jodhaa sight transfixed on his bare torso, then when the emperor tames a wild elephant, one-on-one combat scene in the climax.

The film also have been very well shoot by cinematographer Kiran Deohans, which can be seeing in the battle scenes and the visualization of the songs Khwaja mere khwaja and Azeem-o-shaan-shahenshah.

There have reports that the movie is not true to history, but if you go and see the movie for a Bollywood love story, then you will be pleasantly surprised. A must see movie for 2008. It's a big budget movie and the elaborate sets, locations and customs’ shows were the money was spent. The movie may be a little long for the current times, but it's a movie that is enjoyable and a worth watch.
