    So after ten years & eight movies, the Harry Potter saga finally comes to an end. Having started off with two extremely bland adaptations, the series kicked in high gear from the third movie onwards and has never really looked back. Purists might argue that the movies have failed to remain slavishly faithful to the books but I feel in their own cinematic interpretation they have done reasonably well.

    The plot picks up right from the end of the last film with Harry and his friends still trying to locate all the Horcruxes. The Horcruxes as we all know contain pieces of Lord Voldemort's soul and with them destroyed a part of him dies too, weakening him greatly. All of this culminates in the mother of battles during the siege of Hogwarts. Plus there is the small matter of the prophecy which predicted that only one of the two, Harry or Voldemort will be able to survive, thus begins the fight till the finish.

    While the influence of the 'Lord of the Rings' movies is more than obvious, it's still quite an exciting experience to sit through the siege of Hogwarts. The rousing background score & the amazing effects coupled with familiar characters only add up to a palpable sense of anticipation of whats in store. The final battle contains many plots happening simultaneously and takes a backseat to Harry's attempts at destroying the Horcruxes eventually but still manages to be a highly entertaining affair.

    Other than the battle sequences the other stand-out is the early scene during the break-in to Gringotts bank. The sets, the rail ride, the dragon, everything looks amazing. There are smaller moments which capture the complexities of relationships in the books without an hint of exposition; particularly the relationship between Aberforth & Albus. Even the "twist in the tale" towards the end is explained so amazingly well.

    Complains against the movie would include probably the fact that it's too fast paced and at times assumes most of the viewers have read the book so it doesn't stop to explain things, plus the acting by the three leads is still nothing to crow about.

    So overall this is quite a worthy send-off to Mr. Potter, it's an exciting, rousing, emotional farewell to one of the most beloved fantasy series of our generation. Take a bow, Mr. Yates, take a bow.
