writer JK Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter book in 1995 – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. About a dozen publication houses rejected this manuscript. In the end, somehow the world famous publication Bloomsbury agreed to print it because Alice Newton, the eight-year-old daughter of the chairman of Bloomsbury, read and enjoyed the manuscript. The forced father printed 1000 copies of the book in front of the daughter, half of which were sent to the libraries. JK Rowling got only 1500 pounds. If someone wants to buy one of those rare 1000 copies by going to the market, then he will have to spend about 20000 pounds per copy. JK Rowling’s net worth as of today is 82 billion and 24 crore rupees. This is the magic of Harry Potter.

Watching this documentary is a pleasant experience. Everyone who has read Harry Potter and then watched the movies will find this to be a very touching experience. Everyone has grown up in 20 years. There are also actors who agreed to do this film because when they told their friends and acquaintances that they were getting work in Harry Potter, their inquiries suddenly increased manifold. As Ralph said in the role of Voldemort, his children danced happily as soon as they learned that he would be playing Voldemort. The same happened with some other artists as well. Hundreds of children would gather outside the bookstore every time a book was released, with their parents standing in line throughout the night in their place. Something similar seemed to happen even after the release of these films. Once upon a time, when we had Amitabh’s films or Rajinikanth’s films in Tamil Nadu, there was a festive atmosphere. Harry Potter spread his magic to every corner of the world and inspired people to believe in magic. In the film, Harry’s school principal and his undeclared guardian, Albus Dumbledore, say that Harry, you are the most powerful and will remain because you have the power to “love”.
This is a must watch for every Harry Potter lover. Those who have read the Harry Potter books, watched the movies again and again, will take every moment of this documentary to the beautiful moments of life where Harry’s magic, makes him dream and try to make dreams come true. used to inspire.
