Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2



Harry Potter is still in the hunt to find the remaining 3 horcruxes to defeat/kill his archnemesis once and for all. The movie starts right off from where it ended in the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part -1. He needs to find and destroy the horcruxes which contain parts of Voldemort’s soul. Harry,Ron and Hermione break into Gringotts bank’s underground vault and back to Hogwarts itself to destroy the remaining horcruxes.

The series has come a long way since the first installment of this epic series. Harry is no longer the innocent and charming boy- next- door we saw in Harry Potter and The Philosophers stone. He has grown into an adult with the responsibility of saving the wizarding world  weighing down on his shoulders! And Daniel Radcliffe has been at his best in this film when taken a look at all the earlier films in the series.  Rupert Grint and Emma Watson has shorter screen space in the movie and Alan Rickman may have even toppled the duo when it comes to the importance of supporting cast due to the fact that Severus Snape is a pivotal character in the finale . Alan Rickman surprised the audience with his truly marvelous depiction of Snape’s previously unknown emotional side just with some short words and a tear drop. There are some truly delightful character moments from Neville Longbottom and Professor Mcgonagall which not only brings some relief to the tension in the plot but also moves the audience into applause.Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort is epitome of evil!

Harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2 can surely be called as intense battle movie.David Yates take on Gringotts “bank job” surpasses any Harry Potter fan’s imagination. The overall dark and murky treatment of the visuals of the film is consistent Yate’s earlier potter works.Unlike part 1 , the script work in this movie is more pacy and the momentum picks up by each and every scene.*Spoiler Alert*. The scene in which Harry meets his dead dear ones before his walk towards impending death is unarguably[for me] the greatest scene in the entire harry potter series. And the director requires special appreciation in portraying the scene like every HP fan would have wanted*Spoiler Alert*. The special effects and the set direction team requires a mention as the intense battle scenes in the grand castle of Hogwarts was truly jaw-dropping. The battle scenes are filled with some really sick special effects which quite efficiently utilizes every single thing digital “magic” has to offer.

David Yates, since his first harry potter flick[Order of Phoenix] has had a history of  deviating from his source material and through this movie, he takes it to a whole new level. The movie has a completely different climax except that the final outcome of the climax stands true to the book’s one. The kings cross station scene was not up to  the mark, as it was not quite engaging as it was in the book.But nevertheless the final harry potter[possibly] film satisfies even the HP illiterate because the fight between good and evil transcends languages and boundaries.

The end,the bittersweet moment was truly rewarding for every Potter fan! David yates has created a visual extravaganza which easily becomes a fitting finale to the whole harry potter phenomenon!
