Good for those who haven't watched Harry Potter yet
23 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie and I was totally shocked. This movie was 'so-called' inspired movie from Harry Potter films and Amitabh Bachchan's movie called Jadugar (i.e. Wizard). The film is shot in 3-D and it is full of special effects.

But the problem lies in the script. The film itself looks like that it is doing advertisement for stationary companies. The story for the movie is that a young kid named Shaanu, whose father is dead, lives his mother, Shivani, wins a contest sponsored by Parle-G and Camlin. And he wins the prize of going to magical school (isn't it is funny), Aabra Ka Daabra. And in the school, he becomes friend with two girls (one of them is Hansika Motawani). The headmistress of the school is evil. He also becomes friend of Limbu, keeper of keys of Aabra Ka Daabra. Then he comes to know that his father is not dead. Throughout the film, he tried to save his father from the evil headmistress, who has captured his father.

Special Effects? Lol. Nothing special. Visual Effects? Nothing visual. All VFX and SFX looks like animation. Nothing realistic. Acting was fine.

So, I personally don't recommend you to watch this film. It is poorly handled. Of course if you have no work, then definitely it is a fine time pass.

5 out of 10.
