Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Movie Review: Magic Is Back on the Big Screen!
A still from Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

Potter style magic once again. Whoever has read Harry Potter series would be familiar with the title Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. It was a book that almost all students of Hogwarts read at least once. And now the book is all set to come alive on the big screen.

Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander, a magizoolist who comes to New York with a case full of mystical creatures where an accident releases them into Manhattan and spark a simmering conflict between the Maj (Wizards) and No-Maj (Muggles in America) populations.
While the wizards fight to get the mayhem under control and juggle wizarding world politics, Scamander takes the human Jacob Kowalski on an amazing journey into America's magical world.

The film takes Rowling's magical world to America, thus opening a whole different era and dimension to the magic and wizardry familiar to Potterheads. A big task lies ahead for the makers and Rowling as Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is the starting of a whole new five films series.

Will it be accepted by the huge Potter fan-base? Will Newt Scamander be able to connect to audience same as the Chosen One. Will Eddie Redmayne play another character role to perfection? Shomini Sen from News18.com is inside the theater to find out.
