Simply Superb!
29 July 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One of the best movies ever made in India. If you are a Harry Potter fan, this is a must watch - it will make you appreciate the books even more. Superb acting and music - Himesh has put his best performance ever.

The child actors have been a revelation and indeed have a 'magical' future ahead.

The game of Quidditch was so exciting that it didn't look like a movie sequence. The only problem with the movie is that it was too short - should have been a couple of hours longer. It would have made the experience even more enjoyable.

Overall, a fantastic movie.

Must watch for all.
