YRF’s ‘Gunday’ to release in Dolby Atmos

MUMBAI: Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) and Yash Raj Films today announced that the much-anticipated movie Gunday will be releasing in Dolby® Atmos™—the latest in cinema sound technology. Dolby Atmos unleashes the potential of sound in storytelling by giving filmmakers the creative freedom to easily place or move sounds anywhere in the movie theatre to create a lifelike cinema sound experience. Gunday will be released across theatres in India and worldwide on February 14, 2014, by Yash Raj Films (YRF).

Gunday, a Hindi action movie is written & directed by Ali Abbas Zaffar and produced by Aditya Chopra. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and Produced by Aditya Chopra, the film stars Ranveer Singh & Arjun Kapoor, as Bikram and Bala, along with Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan, in lead roles. Set during the most turbulent times in the history of Calcutta, from 1971 to 1988, the story revolves around Bikram and Bala, who rose from being small time wagon breakers and coal thieves to becoming the biggest and most powerful black market mafia-men. As their notoriety became the stuff of legends, the people of this sprawling city started calling these two carefree and inseparable rebels as Gunday.

“I have always strived to make breakthroughs in my movies, from storytelling to production,” said Ali Abbas Zafar, director of Gunday. “Dolby Atmos is a wonderful tool that enables us to do just that. It allows us to present an even more realistic story with an amazing audio experience that not only excites the ears but also touches the heart. He further added, “We are really looking forward to the release of Gunday in Dolby Atmos, which will transport the audiences to the onscreen action of the movie presenting them with a more realistic entertainment experience.”

Gunday has been natively mixed in Dolby Atmos by rerecording sound mixer Anuj Mathur at YRF Studios. Dilip Subramaniam is the movie’s sound designer. Mixing in Dolby Atmos can simplify workflows because a native Dolby Atmos mix can be used to create 5.1- and 7.1-channel surround sound versions.

Commenting on the announcement, Pankaj Kedia, Country Manager, Dolby Laboratories India, said, “Dolby Atmos brings a natural lifelike audio experience to movie theatres, giving filmmakers the creative freedom to place and move sounds anywhere in the auditorium, including overhead, for added realism and impact. With Gunday in Dolby Atmos, moviegoers will get to be a part of the most realistic cinematic experience amplifying each action sequence, emotion, and music of the movie. As we move forward, we are committed to offering the Indian audiences the best cinematic experience.”
