This DVD was just a charm from beginning to end in a lot ways and I'm not just referring to the actual movie but the whole package.
This DVD started on a good note from the get go when I was able to take the security tape off with ease, which seems to never happen with any other DVDs I purchase!
Usually I end up ruining the box one way or another and having glue from the tape still remind on the borders of the plastic of the DVD, making the DVD all sticky and one big mess! So I'm super glad it didn't happen this time around.
On to the actual box, I was really pleased with the graphics on the front and back covers. It didn't look cheap and actually looked better than some other DVD box graphics that I own from big budget Hollywood films.
Also all over the box the Warner Bros. appeared it was everywhere even on the DVD wrapping! Which makes me question, if Warner Bros. took part in releasing the DVD, why not the film in theaters? Hmmm...
Now as for the face of the DVD, I wasn't feeling it. Maybe it was meant to look the way that it did but it just didn't go with the good quality of the outside box. The DVD face was this bright orange and the image itself seemed really washed out, to the point you could barely read the words on it. But in reality it's something that really didn't irritate me too much since it's what's on that DVD that counts!
The DVD interface is really simple, but nicely done and the music which is from the soundtrack as the back drop music really adds a calmness to the interface.
Sometimes some interfaces have so much going on and you have to wait through different intros every time you switch through the different options of the DVD that after the first few times it becomes an annoyance.
The options you have on this DVD are as followed-- Play Movie, Set up, Special Features and Select Scene. The ones I listed below have other sub features to them:
You can dub the movie into French and change the audio for the English version of the movie...not sure as to what you can change it to, but there's no options to put English or French subtitles.
Commentary with director Vic Sarin and Actress Kristin Kreuk - Vic and Kristin spend most of the commentary talking about all the work that it took to make the movie as well as explained a lot of the meaning behind a lot of the scenes between all the characters, Kristin of course did all the talking for the Naseem scenes. It was really enjoyable and it was my favorite feature of the DVD.
Trailer - Same as the one you've seen on the official Partition movie site in English, there's also one dubbed in French.
Making of - Same as the one that aired on Movie Details, it's a good 48 minutes worth of the making of Partition, if you haven't seen it already you'll enjoy it even more!
Photo Gallery - There's a lot images in the gallery of the cast aren't found on the web.
As for the movie itself, I really enjoyed it, the story was very touching, and I learned a part of history I knew very little about. Visually the movie was insanely gorgeous and the message of the over-all movie is something I wish more people followed!
My only real complainant of the DVD is the fact there was NO SUBTITLES! How they overlooked that feature is beyond me, but they did!
Besides that I have no other real complainants to throw at the DVD, it was really worth it!
