It's yabba dabba doo times for all the little monsters tumbling out of school and spilling out into the hot Hyderabadi streets! Yes, kids, buckle up, grab that spidery broom and whoosh away to check out that geeky-wiz-Potter-boy! Chris Columbus's mega ballyhooed sequel Chamber Of Secrets is out, and is quite frankly for all those pre-pimpled-teens that haven't discovered the joys of Tolkien.

Unlike most kids his age, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliff) is dying to get back to that Hogwart's wiz school where there's more than just reading, 'riting and 'rithmatic. And when bumchum Ron (Rupert Grint) pulls up on his second floor window in a flying car, both of them soar away to sophomore year in school. Was it snatches of ET in that scene or was it just me?


But there's plenty of action happening at Hogwarts. Someone's let loose a seriously mysterious monster in the old Building, and any kid who's caught gawking at it gets turned to stone. And of course, it's Harry and his sidekicks who have bail out everyone out of their apparent angst and get the show on the road.

Well, that's the general gobbledygook about this shtick. The sequel does manage to infuse some great CGI moments and has plenty of eye-candy for those who're keeping tabs on the animation. One bit that seemed to go down well with the audience was the 'Howler' one where letters get transformed into an Origami mouth.


The central trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione is cute. I wish, though, that Ron would really grow up - if that shrieking around like a banshee continues, he may well play Hermione's part in the next flick. But Harry remains as wooden as ever. Am I missing something or is this bloke meant to be this way? He just doesn't have enough chutzpah to carry off the role.

As far as sequels go, I suppose this bit falls neatly into the groove made by its predecessor. BUT UNLIKE The Two Towers, wherein the sequel created a canvas that enlarged the scope of the movie, Harry Potter continues to work within the narrow confines of the world created in the first bit. There is nothing terribly new or expansive in the sequel. It almost falls flat in terms of adding to the original. It might be great for folks who want to keep up with Potter, but hey, I want to see something new - perhaps something that I wouldn't expect in a Potter flick. But I suppose the filmmakers, bound by the book, are confined in terms of expression.


In terms of plot, I personally liked the parallel plot better - the Slitherns out to beat the crap out of those who weren't racially pure... huh, Schindler's List anyone?

En Fin, Harry Potter is a thoroughly enjoyable flick... if you're 12 or are close to that age mentally and love frothy whimsical fantasies. But don't let me decide, you may well be quite surprised at what you might end up liking about his spiel.
