The humour of the movie is inevitably more visual than that of the book; no belly laughs, but a lot of smiles. This isn't as much freedom as they need and they fall a little short. There's not only a lot of plot to cover in this film, but an entire world to create. හහ් හා… අපේ සෙට් එකට ජය වේවා! Without going into the story I would certainly say Chris Columbus churns out a perfect pot-pourri of emotions, suspense and magic, delivering something appealing to all ages. The movie does include platform nine-and-three-quarters, though the way the kids disappear into the wall isn't as mysterious as I had visualized, and the sorting hat is there, minus the great poem explaining the differences between the four schools. For some reason the family has always mistreated him. Some of the magic spells and effects look awesome; others don't capture the imagination nearly so much.
කේ රෝලින් අතින් ලියැවුනු පොතක් තමයි හැරී පොටර් කථාව. He beautifully captures the deep soul and untapped potential of Harry Potter. In the minds of die-hard fans, any changes made to the story will be seen as desecrating the fantasy world that Rowling created. John Cleese as Nearly Headless Nick and Julie Walters as Mrs. The most ambitious point of the movie is the computer generated imagery.
The gently satirical aspects of Hogwarts School aren't in the movie at all. Not that I'm blaming the movie for omitting some details. It's the ultimate fantasy for young and old. David Bradley has a vicious Argus Filch; John Hurt's Ollivander is an eccentric treat, giving a wonderful introduction to the Wizarding World. Having read all four books in the series a few times each, I am overly familiar with the events in the story.
The problem is that the amusing details are much of what make Harry Potter such a special story. මේ කතාවේ හැරි පොටර් ළමයා තමන්ගේ මාමයි නැන්දයි එක්ක ජීවත්වෙන වයස 11ක් වෙන හැමදාම වැඩකාරයෙක් වගේ ගෙදර වැඩ කරන දුකසේ ඉන්න කෙනෙක් දවසක් මෙයාට ලියුමක් ලැබෙනවා. It's as if they took the image in my mind and transferred it to the screen. Overall, however, his restraint works nicely in giving the film the kind of believability the book possesses. Alan Rickman is wonderfully villainous as Professor Snape and Zoe Wanamaker has just the right touch of girls gym teacher as flying instructor Madame Hooch.
Some aspects of the story are fleshed out on screen and the additions are delightful, completely in keeping with the flavour of the world. The professors are uniformly excellent, though Richard Harris' Dumbledore comes off as disappointingly flat until the end. For instance, the lower-tech-looking Sorting Hat scene is one of the most delightful of them all. Perhaps some of the scenes would have been better with more conventional special effects? Some things from the book would not have translated easily to the screen, and it would have been very difficult to stick everything in. I have seen it several times and each time I am enchanted by the characters and magic. Tom Felton makes a stylish Draco; Matt Lewis' Neville character suffers from the acceleration, so the finale does come as a slight characterisation shock.
How-ever after watching the movie it did make me a Harry Potter movie fan. They soon learn that something very valuable is hidden somewhere inside the school and Voldemort is very anxious to lay his hands on it. Rupert Grint is delightful as Harry's sardonic buddy Ron Weasley and Emma Watson nearly steals the film as their overachieving friend Hermione Granger. The dialogue is intensely measured, the colouring is suitably epic, the selection of what to leave in is really tightly considered. There was so much anticipation leading up to its release, I simply enjoyed the experience of being there.
Released from the clutches of his desperately ordinary and non-magical Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia - and their deliciously obnoxious son Dudley - Harry takes his place in the wizarding world as a first year student at the venerated Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. So it could never have been the film that the hyper-literalists were hoping for, then, but it is as good as the practicalities of the real world could possibly permit. මෙච්චර වටින වැඩ කරන්ඩ දිගටම හිත්දේවා! Together, the trio try to set things right in the school. Furthermore, the directors have bowed to the inevitable temptation to show us things that cannot be communicated so effectively in a book. ඉදිරි දින කිහිපය ඇතුළත කතා මාලාවම සිංහල දෙනවා! He soon finds, however, that the wizarding world is far more dangerous for him than he would have imagined, and he quickly learns that not all wizards are ones to be trusted.
Columbus clearly understands that fantasy works best when it's played most real. ඉතින් මේක ගොඩක් අය බලලා තියෙනවා. The kids who play Harry's two best friends are flawless. The cast is outstanding, the special effects delightful, everything most believable. The voice acting is almost uniformly brilliant. To paraphrase the film's tagline, let the magic and box office records begin. It's all kept tasteful, classy and above the belt; there's nothing to cringe about.
This forces practical limitations when making a movie. Harry is snatched away from his mundane existence by Hagrid, the grounds keeper for Hogwarts, and quickly thrown into a world completely foreign to both him and the viewer. ඒ ගැන ආයෙ කතා මොනවටද? But on his 11th birthday, he learns he's a powerful wizard -- with a place waiting for him at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Every character brought to life on screen has done justice and leave an impression on you. However, it may not stand up to detailed analysis. Harry learns that his parents were wizards and were killed by an evil wizard Voldemort, a truth that was hidden from him all these years.
