The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono, and the dialogue is in English, with optional English language subtitles but no multiple language options. Bonus materials include a short documentary by James Ivory on Indian intellectual Nirad Chaudhuri, entitled The Adventures of a Brown Man in Search of Civilization, and an interview with director Ivory and producer Ismail Merchant.
