STAR GOLD -Is it genuine GOLD ?
STAR is one of the most renowned brands in Asia and has a real good footprint in UK.STAR Gold is the channel which caters to viewers appetite for Hindi movies and comes under the big banner of STAR network.
I got STAR gold through Sky and made sure the entertainment bundle includes this. The channel has been named as GOLD as it believes that Bollywood movies has its stem deep rooted in old classics and this channel presents them before you. However off late I have also seen movies which are just released around 2 to 5 years back.
There are interesting segments like 'Blockbuster of the Month' which are normally from the mega Bollywood hits collection. STAR GOLD has another important fragment called Superstars Thursday which brings in movies of your superstar like -Amitabh,Sahrukh,Dharmendra and the list goes on as Bollywood has never been short of Superstars.' Sunday Popcorn' is another area where STAR brings in remarkable movies. With most of the movies screened at prime time you can really enjoy them at ease.
I would say the picture quality and voice clarity is definitely there for most of the movies but what bothers me is the genre of movies and repetition. STAR GOLD has failed to impress me as it keeps on playing the same movies over and over each week.
I found STAR GOLD in India quite rich in collection however it is not the same in UK.I would also like to note that if STAR GOLD has to establish a stronger hold on Asian population in UK it has to maintain the rich heritage across the border not only in India. Remake and regional dubbed movies might add to the repository of STAR GOLD but it will not gain wider acceptance.
I wish someone from STAR would read my review to improve their service in UK.
