Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in the protagonist roles, the 7th saga, ‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part I’, is a ride to remember as you are taken through darker alleys, murkier forests and isolated grounds.
Director David Yates comes up with his best this time to serve us a film so well-documented and racy that it leaves you panting and gasping. The story spins around the trio of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint who embark on their quest to destroy Horcruxes- the secret to the Dark Lord Voldemort’s immortality.
But the quest is not devoid of its many difficulties. Beside the swooping Death Eaters and the preying Ministry, an internal tension brews this time amidst acute weariness, hopelessness and a sense of defeat.
The various shades of Ron’s character come to the fore as he elopes midway after sparks fly between him and Harry. The entire tone of the film is bathed in horror and a thrill of breath-chilling magnitude.
Everything from screenplay to cinematography seems perfect and even though director takes some liberty with the script, the overall effect is drowning and intoxicating. Scary, thrilling, adrenaline-pumping, unnerving- the excitement shall reach fever pitch as you are thrown into a world where a humongous battle is to commence between the good and the evil.
Don’t miss out this one even if it costs you hundreds of galleons. If this was the beginning, it’s hard to imagine what’s en store for us on July 2011.
