Dum Maaro Dum Hit The Screen With Dolby Surround 7.1
Bollywood much awaited movie Dum Maaro Dum, directed by Rohan Sippy, finally knocked the door of theatres with Dolby Surround sound 7.1, an upgraded version of sound system.
The film stars Bipasha Basu, Abhishek Bachachan, and Rana Daggubati, also got well recognition on the course of using first time such upgraded version of sound system in the Indian film history and paved the way for other movies to use it.
On the other side it is said that audience might not be able to get wonderful sound effect as only few multiplexes are fully installed with such feature, so this might distort the actual sound effect as well.
Sound engineers also supported the fact and given their reaction by saying that the movie can be enjoyed only those cinema halls which are well equipped by Dolby Surround 7.1, rather then the Dolby 5.1 surround sound equipped theatres, available in India in large number.
An audio expert, engaged with installing sound systems in various theatres in the country, revealed that the new experiment might not be so effective and visitors would be deprived from the actual effect of the sound system as we have very few theatres that use the sophisticated Dolby 7.1 surround sound and most of the cinema halls are using older version of Dolby 5.1 surround sound technology.
Such halls are completely unable to deliver the real experience of the newly introduced sound system. On the other hand he also stated that the new system can only be effective for that theatres having limited number of seat.
If we take a look of our theatres, most of these are known for offering seating capacity for more than 500 people, so it can be a great hurdle on the course of installing the new sound system. He also emphasized on the fact that the better experience of such sound can be experienced in enclosed room or mini theatre.
On the other hand it can be good news for the viewers, residing in Mumbai and Pune or at hand of such cities can get the auditory sound effect of the movie as most theatres are equipped with Dolby 7.1 Surround sound.
