Indians React to Hollywood Movies in Hindi: Jadui Jeev

We watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in Hindi and this is what we learnt


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.

From Smriti Nilopan to Adamyashakti, we expanded our vocabulary by leaps and bounds.

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!
