Shivaji aka Sivaji, a Rajnikanth's 2007 blockbuster hit movie is gearing up for its 3D release on December 12 2012. AVM Studios have taken a lot of efforts to conver the original movie into a 3D movie. The studios have spent the last few years in converting the movie from its original format.
The coolest thing about the Sivaji 3D is that the movie will release on Rajnikanth's birthday on December 12th 2012 and it will also represent the unique date as 12-12-12. This will be the first movie to release in Dolby Atmos.
What is Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos is a new surround sound technology announced by Dolby Laboratories in April 2012. The technology was first used in Pixar animation's 2012 movie Brave. It will be first implemented in commercial cinams and later will be available for home theater systems.
Dolby Atmos can play back standard 5.1 or 7.1 mix using arrays along with giving each loudspeaker its own unique feed. So it will enable many new front surround sounds and ceiling mounted channels. The sound of helicopter or dropping rain can be heard in a whole new way with Dolby Atmos. There are only handful of movies that will be release with Dolby Atmos technology such as Brave, Life of Pi, Taken 2 and Rise Of the Guardians.
Sivaji 3D release will make it a first Indian movie to adapt the technology. Now I wonder if the technology will be available in Indian theaters or not but that's a whole another story.
