Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Medium : English
Starring : Daniel Radcliffe, Michael Gambon
Director : David Yates, Producer : Warner Brothers

A friend of mine once passed a comment regarding my madness in watching films. It is a fact, since I won’t usually miss any films (to the maximum extend) which are releasing these days. If I have ignored watching any films, the reason is simple; the particular project would not have a life span of more than 5-6days. Some unavoidable engagements can also be the cause rarely. When it comes in the case of English, the decision taken by me will be on the basis of the interest. It is a fact that, I am not a regular viewer of Hollywood films. We are getting only a small percent of such films as releases here. “Practice makes things perfect…” is the motto, I am following here. The disappointment happening in following the English dialogues can be solved to certain extend due to this. Still I am not succeeded in it. So far I have watched only 1 or 2 films from the ‘Harry Potter’ series released so far. May be, it is a very popular literary work for the kids abroad, but such an interest have not reached me till date. Since, I am in the pool, no use in complaining, I have to swim…

‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’ starts when the three witches attacking the city. They are seen flying through the air in ultra speed. Those people wearing black costumes, destroys the building, bridges and whatever comes on their way and finally vanishes. Harry still studies in the magic school. There you are still having different games conducting in the air. We are also shown the friendship, love and hatred happening in between. With the help of the professor, Harry finds the destroyers. In the end, the old teacher is killed in the attack. The villains are let freed and the film ends where Harry looks farther to the sky in the hope of taking the revenge.

I totally disagree with the way in which the climax is shown. Maybe in the case of a book, it is relevant. But when it comes in the cinematic medium, there should be an end for every story. They might be interested in producing a sequel for this story, but what they have tried to discuss should have been in put a proper format. Every beginning should have an end there itself. Anyway, the film has not gone down from the usual standards of presentation.

Those who are interested in ‘Harry Potter’ series can watch ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’ also.

Rating : 7 / 10
