Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part I –  – English
When the final book of the Harry Potter series was said to be adapted into the movie in 2 parts everybody thought it was a clear-cut money making move as there is not much story moves in the first half of the book and also when compared to the previous books happenings in this book were quite slow till it reaches the climax. So with one of the slow moving chapters what David Yates and his team offered us on the screen?
Voldemort grew in power with each passing day and the ministry of magic falls in the hands of him. With the dark lord’s rise, death Eaters were killing the muggles and the other wizards at will. Snape, a follower of the Dark Lord, becomes the headmaster of Hogwarts. With Dumbledore left Harry the task of finding and destroying the Horcruxes as it is the only way of killing Voldemort, he goes in pursuit of it along with Ron and Hermione. But death eaters were at large that the task become difficult and impossible. On their way they see a symbol which was around the neck of Xenophilius Lovegood, father of Luna Lovegood and the book presented by Dumbledore to Hermione. There they find that it is the symbol of deathly hallows. How many horcruxes were destroyed by Harry, were the death eaters were close to catching Harry forms the rest of the film.
Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) shares the most of the screen time and surprisingly all the 3 has given good performances. As always Emma Watson is looking gorgeous but I didn’t liked her acting in the last part. But this time she has given a strong performance. Rupert Grint was at his usual self giving some comic relief in an otherwise serious movie. Daniel Radcliffe has given a wonderful performance and I loved it. The only other characters which has considerable screen presence were Bellatrix, Lucius Malfoy and Vondemort. I missed Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) in this part. He was the only one I always think that a perfect cast.
The visuals of this movie is really brilliant with the dark tone suits well. Especially the visual of ‘The tale of three brothers’ was stunning. Its very creative. The bike chase scene is also good. The background score was nice which suits the mood of the scenes well. Steve Kloves has written the screenplay and he has done a better work by cutting down the unwanted portions and lets the movie run its length as he has the freedom of making it in 2 parts. Director David Yates whom I hated for killing the 6th part done well to remain faithful to the book this time and the result is better. They could have rushed the proceedings of the movie by reducing the parts of happenings in forest which many will feel very slow.
If you have read the book, you will like this movie for sure. If not this will bore you as there are too many dialogue which may seem irrelevant. Even though this movie ends at a point which is incomplete but this is a more satisfying experience and makes me so eager to watch the second part of the movie which I am sure going to be awesome.
