Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

Medium : English
Starring : Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson
Director : David Yates

The seventh
movie of Harry Potter series has been released. Around the world, the little magician character in the famous literary work has got many fans like any other super heroic characters. The producers want to take the maximum advantage of such a fact, hence they have divided the death hallows section into two parts and the current release is titled 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1'. Most of the characters in the other versions are coming here also.

I was always wondering to see the big crowd coming to watch the Harry Potter series of movies. This may be due to the fact that today's young generation knows every thing about Harry and are more attached to his heroism. Since I have not read any of the stories of Harry Potter, the movie (and any of its sequels) had not created an extra interest in me so far. More over the grayish and light bluish tint given for the frames for the 'Harry Potter' set of movies didn't gives an attractive sight for me, hence in every sense it is like any other ordinary movie for me. For the latest movie also, the environment inside the theater was filled with the positive sounds and big claps, when each characters were introduced. It came especially from the teenagers. I was happy to realize the fact that more than 75% of such people still spend some time for reading, even if it is a work of extreme fantasy.

The story starts with the three friends Harry, Ron & Hermi (Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint & Emma Watson) goes on a mission to destroy the evil destructive programs of Voldemort. On the way, they have to face many dangers and threats. The Ministry of Magic is prepared to take actions against those who are opposing them. Harry was hoping is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort reaches them. Thus goes the journey in 'Harry Potter and the Death Hallows Part 1'.

The opening scenes were attractive, especially the magic sequences in which many Harrys are created and the chasing sequences at air gave a good energy. Then came dialogues and dialogues, which created an elongated lag. In the middle, you have got an adventurous lap like a python attack, transformation to other bodies, running shots etc. The magic and visual effects sequences used in the movie are excellent as expected. But, there are many areas which can make viewers fed up for minutes. A romantic salsa dance by Harry with the girl, in between a tense situation created a negative howling reaction from the crowd (they know very well that where should they react). Since the sequel version is releasing within an year, the revenge episode is pending.

A regular follower of Harry Potter series can watch 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1'.
