The magical world of Harry Potter strikes the old New York as the jolting story by J K Rowling hits the silver screen with a bang. For all the Harry Potter lovers, you won't be seeing the scarred foreheaded boy (who grew up later #minordetails) in this movie. This adaptation is a subdivision of the magical world taking you back in time, way before the Hogwarts as you know it existed.
As the events of the movie gradually unfold in front of your eyes, you realize that dragons are the centerpiece of destruction along with the dark powers right there. You sit on the edge of your seats gazing eagerly with your attentive eyes for the protagonist to unwind his heroistic persona and seize the beasts.
Steve Kloves has returned for the role of the producer twisting his magic wand to innate his usual light touch in the movie. The sole credit of screenwriting goes to Ms Rowling. Hence, if something about this movie comes out as familiar then it shouldn't be surprising. You won't be seeing a boy gradually entering the adulthood but a man oscillating between boyhood and manhood.
The movie is based on the thinly drafted 2001 bestiary created by Rowling and it expands from there.
Our hero, Newt for a reason finds himself in New York where the elevated train tracks are the medium of commuting. Unpredictably, free-ranging and dangerous beasts manage to slide right through his suitcase, entering the magical world and pushing the real world in absolute chaos.
Now, it's on the shoulder's of Newt to save both.
It is a joyous and entertaining ride to watch the events taking place and falling together, filling the gap of the puzzle. Where Harry Potter movies have been on the heavier side, this series will give you the cherishable lighter moments.
