Nirmita Dee,
from what you have said I presume that this audio description will be
available in general DVDs also?
If that is the case, then I must pluggin the dvd player to listen to that?
If you could tell me what is the sign of audio described movie apart from
dialogs means where actually we can come to know that it is audio described
movie so that I can quickly look at the dvd of it.
I think in the starting itself when the names of producer director casting
director etc comes so at that time if it is described then it is audio
described movie?
any other member who has seen the dvd of MNIK after 24th febuary when the
press release came?
