Blinded by the Light is a 2019 British comedy-drama film directed by Gurinder Chadha, inspired by the life of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor and his love of the works of Bruce Springsteen.
The film tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father (Kulvinder Ghir). But when a classmate (Aaron Phagura) introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice.
VIDEO QUALITY /AUDIO QUALITY:
BLINDED BY THE LIGHT comes to Blu-ray with a blaring and quintessential Dolby Atmos audio track. The film will rock your home theater set up or sound bar, and does a fine job on even simply tv speakers. Our set up was both a soundbar and also a 5.1 Dolby Atmos set up. The Boss would approve of this stellar sound track. Dialogue is also clear and for the blu-ray the picture quality was fine too. A few instances of film grain but they looked on par with the setting for the film. Recommended.
