On November 18, the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is based on JK Rowling’s book of the same name, was released in India. Potterheads all over the globe have been flocking to theatres. Bayside Journal’s Neerja Deodhar and Priyadarshini Patwa decided to watch the film, except they didn’t watch the version of the film that the rest of you did; they watched Jadui Jeev, the film dubbed in Hindi. It was quite an experience to watch quintessential English-speaking characters mouth chaste Hindi. Here is what our reviewers have to say.
This is the first of a series of reviews of Hollywood films dubbed in Hindi for a truly desi experience.
We encountered beasts of a different kind.
Acting, yay! Story, nay.
Harry Potter’s Wizarding world + Hindi dialogues = Ekta Kapoor serial
If after watching this you haven’t wished for Smriti Nilopan, wait for our next video!
