The seven-edition saga by J.K. Rowling finally gets justice cinematically. When Warner Bros. declared that the last & final stroke by J.K.Rowling will be split in two halves, lot many questions were asked but after watching "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows-Part 1" I confidently say that WB took the right step.

If you have read the book you must be aware that Deatly Hollows is so big in itself that wrapping all those aspects in one movie would have either resulted in a disaster or a highly confusing story. Almost every new scene opens in different location, it has got so many characters, so many emotions- sacrifices, determination, friendship; that it would have been unfair if David Yates would have compiled all that in one go. So the idea of breaking the seventh masterpiece, not only will cover all the aspects of the book but also gives more scope to the characters to show their potential.

Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) Ron (Rupert Grint), Hermoine (Emma Watson) needs no introduction at all! we all have seen them, appreciated them and in this one they team up once again to bid Harry Potter series a grand good bye. In Daethly Hollows, the trio maks an attempt to finish Voldrmort (Ralph Fiennes) but the irony here is the fact that he can't be killed until his seven horcruxes are destroyed. Now the big question is how to find the Horcruxes?

Alright let's not reveal everything in the review as Part 1 of the movie contains only one-eight part of he book. This installment reveals the Repressive tenor, Bigger risks and Grandiose aspirations of Deathly Hollows before it reaches the finale.

Harry Potter is not only the most famous but also most well-defined series & David Yates with writer Steve Cloves makes this version even more gripping. So many sets, ear piercing sound sequences and intense action sequences have added a dark momentum to this edition.

I will not say that film is perfect is every way as there are few places where David Yated could have done better. Firstly movie becomes slow in between and as a viewer you will feel that movie is stretched a bit. Secondly, the most famous theme of Harry Potter is missing and thirdly, ending of this part is abrupt but can't really say much on this as part two is still to arrive.

Footer: Harry Potter 7 is the darkest film of the franchise and the way David Yates showcased it, has added a suspenseful element to it. Do watch out for Grint's comic timing as he did a wonderful job. All in all Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows lives upto its expectations and is best of the lot so far.
