Twenty years ago, on June 26, 1997, people were introduced to the magical world of Harry Potter and things changed forever. One stormy night, a boy who lived with his evil Aunt and Uncle was told that he is a wizard and like him people were first shocked and later giddy with excitement. The seven book Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling went on to become a classic and eight spectacular blockbuster motion pictures brought the enchanting words alive on screen.
Embark on this magical adventure as &pictures, Naye India Ka Blockbuster Movie Channel showcases the entire The Harry Potter Film Series in Hindi starting 17th September, every Sunday at 11 AM. Taking the entertainment quotient a notch higher, &pictures has also roped in one of Harry Potter’s biggest fans Darsheel Safary to present the film series.
The Harry Potter Film Series, also featuring Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, follows Harry's quest to overcome his arch-enemy Lord Voldemort. The franchise has won several prestigious awards including Best Actor, Best Visual Effects, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Makeup amongst others and captivated the imagination of millions across the globe. Movie after movie, people feel the magic course through their veins as the ‘boy who lived’, Harry Potter along with his best friends Hermione and Ron go on mystical escapades.
A die-hard Harry Potter fan, Darsheel Safary says, “Like any other kid, I have been a huge fan of the Harry Potter series since childhood and everyone should experience this one-of-a-kind magical extravaganza on &pictures. There was a time in school when I would enact casting spells with my pencils and wooden sticks. All actors have a dream role and mine is my childhood dream of being a part of a wizardry school. I really admire the chemistry between the three friends – Harry, Ron & Hermoine & hope that someday Harry Potter is made in India and I get to play Harry’s character.”
The Harry Potter Film Series will kick-start with ‘Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone’ on Sunday, 17th September at 11 AM. Harry Potter is an orphaned boy brought up by his unkind Muggle (non-magical) aunt and uncle. On discovering he is a wizard, the 11-year-old Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn magic where he befriends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson). But instead of running into trouble, trouble seems to find them. At the end of their school year, Harry, Ron and Hermione, stumble on a deadly secret and overcome the challenges that guard the mythical Sorcerer’s Stone. After battling their way through, Harry comes face-to-face with his family’s oldest foe, Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).
Taking the weekend excitement to an all-time high, the story unfolds every Sunday at 11 AM only on &pictures.
