Technical milestone
9 September 2007 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This film is a technical milestone for cinema because it's one of the first films shot with a 4K digital cinema camera, the Dalsa Origin. The result when projected digitally in 4K is an extremely clean and sharp picture that looks like grainless 70mm film. It's wonderful. Clearly a glimpse into the future of film making when such cameras become easier to use and more widespread as digital cinematography replaces 35mm origination more and more (in sync with digital projection replacing traditional film prints). If you have a chance to see it in 4K do so. It looks like 8 Megapixel still frames coming alive. The story is about Indian culture being lost by Desis in US to the degree that a white man has to remind an Indian of his roots and how to solve a problem the way his Indian heritage and culture would deal with it.
