    Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts

    ★★★★★

    I wouldn’t say watching this was nostalgic as I’ve never stopped watching Harry Potter films, but this was a well made documentary, a tearjerker throughout. I got a complete sense of what everyone felt, their emotions when they made this saga of eight films. I missed Maggie Smith though in this sweet get-together and I believe, so did the whole unit. Minerva was always one of my favourite characters when I read the books and I completely loved Maggie Smith…

    ★★★★

    Making the audience hook to the plot within first five minutes of the movie is an art and Mr. Ray is a Rembrandt of it. 

    The dialogues and the performances of the three main characters forms the strength of this film. Especially I liked how the character of Mr. Gupta is written and portrayed.

    Though it’s not a celebrated film of Satyajit Ray, this one should not be missed.
