What REAL Harry Potter fans don't like...

I'll make this post short and sweet, SO unlike my usual posts. That's because I want those morons who think they're Harry Potter fans, to read this and get over with their fantasy!

1. FAKE HP fans.
Those who like the HP world because so many people across the world are crazy about it. They haven't read the books, they don't know the central meaning of the whole story, BUT they'll watch the movies to gel in with the crowd. I personally don't think those who haven't read the books understand the depth of the story, the reason for Harry's survival, the deep meaning about love and kindness and power of goodness that's hidden in the written word. The movies don't even show everything, since it's not possible and hence it becomes 'just a magic story' kind of movie; and those who only follow the movies don't understand the real meaning. Dear such people, you are only aware of the magical names and terms BUT you don't know WHY and HOW things are going the way they're going. Follow my advice, read the books, OR DON'T blabber that you know everything about it. I'll quiz you once on it and you'll fall off straight away! Save yourself the misery.

2. Movie Ticket grabbers - just because a movie is in 3D!!!
Patiently waiting a whole year to watch the "End" of Voldy, I go out all set to watch the movie. Reaching the counter after spending a half hour in the queue, I'm cheerfully told the tickets are sold out!!! Hello??? What happened? Every single time I've gone for HP movies (which are the only movies I make the effort to go out for) not even half the number of tickets were sold. How did it become 'sold-out' now??? I'll tell you why. Because morons rule the world. Most people (and mostly kids) want to watch it just because it's in 3D. Yes, so lame. I mean, do the 7 year olds even understand what's happening? All they will understand is that there's a war and they'll love it in 3D, love the flashes of light. That's it! I feel so sorry for people like me!

3. Crazy Co-movie watchers.
We get the tickets, the movie starts. Whispers follow. On closer inspection, I find people whispering to each other. In between the movie! Spoiling the fun for others! Some will be showing off their HP knowledge by carefully explaining about the events in the movie to their friends, who don't know the story. Some will be saying out loud what's going to happen next (yeah, book readers find it hard to restrain themselves, sadly. Such people, wake up! You're not the only ones there. We know much more than you and you would do better to just shut up). Some kids would be stuffing their mouths with popcorn and saying, "Mummy, Harry ke peeche kyu bhaag re hai sab?" Of course, they don't keep their voices down either. You try to ask them to keep quiet and the angry protective mom stares at you. Sad!

4. (People may disagree with me here, but what I'm saying is completely my own personal thought).
People who want to watch the movies - in HINDI!!!
That's just so ewww. HP in Hindi is completely incomprehensible (I'm excluding those who've read the Hindi versions of the books). It would have been okay if they didn't change the names of different stuff. Gryffindor becomes "garudwar", Deathly Hallows becomes "maut ke taufe". Hello? There isn't any relation of the title with any 'taufa' or gift!
I'm not including those who've read the Hindi versions; because at least they understand. They KNOW what's happening.

5. People who don't like HP.
99.9999....... % of the times these are people who haven't even read the books. Guys, please DON'T judge the book by its cover! If you don't like magic, stay away from it; but don't criticize HP. For heaven's sake, it's the best next thing to the word 'magic' in fiction. A whole new legendary world created via imagination. Hats off to J.K.Rowling! Millions of kids have spent their childhood/teenage/both with Harry and his mystical world. They owe HP their reading habit, their improved language skills and knowledge. For those who've read the books but still don't like them, I would like to say just three words - GET A LIFE!!!

6. People who wonder why some people ( like ME) are crazy about HP...
Either read the series yourself or STOP wondering. :p

Personal note - Anybody who says anything negative about HP (without any knowledge themselves), in front of me, is inviting trouble. I'm an HP MANIAC and have read each book at least 7 times (and counting), plus the supplementary ones. (I've only ever got *The Tales of Beedle the Bard*. Still searching for *Quidditch through the ages* and *Fantastic Beasts and where to find them*. Exactly. Where to find them? The books, I mean. They don't seem to be in any bookstore :/ )

Contrary to what I promised in the beginning, for this to be a short and sweet note, it became a long one. Though it's okay, HP is some topic I love to talk about! HP fans, and I mean REAL HP fans, do tell me if you agree with me or not! I would love to discuss HP further.

Ending with Dumbledore's lines (to Harry) that I love, "You've got a power of which Voldemort is ignorant. The power to love. This is ancient magic, understood by few."


  1. I've read 'Quidditch through the ages' and 'Fantastic beasts and where to find them'. They are Ok. Not upto the levels of 'Tales of beedle the bard'.

  2. Hey Usama... I agree with you. I loved 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard'. A friend helped me find out Fantastic beasts and Quidditch..... but I still haven't read the whole thing. It isn't as good as Tales... :)


I would like to hear what you have to say.. :)
