Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1

Harry Potter mania has struck once again !! Or has it not ?? Well, thats the question i have been asking to  myself for the last two days. I was quite lucky to get a couple of tickets of the latest Harry potter flick just an hour before the show this sunday. Would you believe that ?? I mean just 2 days into the release and at a place where tickets are pre-booked quite fast , you dont actually fancy your chances of getting tickets at the counter at the last minute.

As always i would not be revealing the whole story here but  let me be honest here, its really hard  to  leave even the small bits and pieces of the story that makes a review complete and interesting. Now, With Dumbledore Dead, You-know-who has taken over everything. Harry, Hermione and Ron take the task of finding the remaining horcruxes and destroying them. Thats the Plot. I have not read the Book so cant relate much with real version of the story. Although i did feel that the story was little discontinuous here and there.  Like the previous 2 parts this  movie too starts and clings on a serious Note. You can see a lot more of emotion involving the three lead characters which from my point of view did make a sluggish impact at the middle . It looked as if the whole drama was being stretched to its maximum just to ensure that the movie is big enough so that the best could be saved for second part. Nevertheless, there were other things in this  part that were quite Enjoyable .

Visually the movie was as good as it gets. Most of the viewers would agree that the Animated visuals that were shown depicting the Deathly Hallows Tale were quite exceptional. Something out of the box that no would would have actually anticipated in a Movie that has been on talk for its extensive Special effects rather than animation. Sound effects , as usual, were good too. We, in the theater, were almost taken aback at a particular scene where Hermione and Harry take on a Huge Python .

Personally speaking, Dobby’s entry made a lot of impact on the later part of the movie.  The crowd broke into an applause when Dobby snaps  and says -“Dobby has no master. Dobby is a free elf. Dobby has come to save Harry Potter and his Friends ” 😛 . Something that i have never witnessed in the earlier  harry potter movies. Performances were good though not exceptional . Ron was at his Witty best delivering the humor content amidst, possibly the most serious situations 🙂 . Contrary to last year’s Harry Potter And the Half Blood prince, Director David Yates was able to strike the chord with the viewers much better with this year’s Installment of Harry Potter and the deathly hallows – Part 1 . It was pretty much evident from the reactions of the viewers. Overall the movie was Good , a bit lengthy , which might have been the effect of no intervals . But it Does leave u on a high note, asking for more action which has been left for the next and the last version of the Harry Potter Series.

First Question that u ask yourself when u leave a cinema hall is – Whether the movie was really satisfying and worth your money? Well, i would give a  definite Yes for that question. So What are you waiting for ??

  1. I really did enjoy the movie. I can’t wait for the 2nd installment. =)

  2. I’m yet to watch it… Will go in some time…

  3. you know what.. you must really really read the books.. the movies are no match to the books.. books are toooo awesome.. but I loved this movie too 🙂

    • Yes , Actually the only reason i avoided harry potter books were because i watched the movies.. I know the books would have been amazing if i had read it before .. but thing was i started watching the HP series as movies first and i wanted to keep that way ..
      i did read 3 parts after i saw the movies and i liked it but there was no suspense , so somehow i did not enjoy it as much as you would have enjoyed . ..
      But I am sure one day i am gonna read all the parts

    • I was going to comment the same thing! u know the huge python is Nagini, voldemort’s pet and in fact one of the Horcruxes.

  4. i got to see it TONIGHT .. wednesday it is … 🙂 yayyyyyyyyyyy

    thanks for the great review and as mentioned above its the books which are more magical … 🙂


  5. I was going to watch it tomorrow, but tomorrow is the first Ashes test so I don’t think i am going to watch it, and also don’t miss the ashes song on my blog..!! 😀

  6. Overall I really enjoyed the movie, it has a runtime of about 145mins but I went into the theatre and it felt like the movie was about 20min long. I would encourage anyone who enjoys the Harry Potter series to not hesitate, and go watch this movie and not wait until it finally releases on DVD. Overall rating 9/10.-advertising

  7. I guess I am the only soul on this earth (at least on the blogosphere) who has not read a single HP book or seen a single HP movie!! I don’t know why, I don’t want to watch them! I used to enjoy fantasy when I was younger, but not anymore I guess… maybe Ill change my mind if I watch it? 🙂

  8. Seems like I m the only person who hasnt watched this movie yet. Will go soon as everyone is going gaga over the movie. But my love for books is so much that I cant really enjoy the movies much 😦

  9. Me too enjoyed this movie much and as you say Dobby got appreciation from audiences and he is the hero of this part I guess 🙂 🙂

  10. BTW, I am tagging you on the topic ‘My top three movies of all time’ – Please do if you find time.

  11. I’ve adored Dobby right from the time he was first introduced in the series. I must catch this movie soon 🙂

  12. What a GREAT review !!! I love the “Harry Potter” movies, and this one is no
    exception. However, this flick is a little too dark at times, and probably my least favorite of the series to date. “Prisoner of Azkaban” is the best of the bunch (in my opinion) !!!

  13. hey hi dude seems like your super back………started following ur posts again

  14. You have a very well organize blog. Keep up the good work

  15. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the second one.. Hope it will provide some stunning visual 3d effects before the voldemort goes.
    Can’t wait for 15th july
