Read it and Weep

Oct 12, 2012

In a faraway land called India, the rules are different. People drive on the wrong side of the road, eat curries that actually taste like something, and make movies that are blatant rip offs of other movies.

One such film is Aabra Ka Daabra, a bizarre mash-up of Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Casper. Wizards are real, but the only way to get into wizarding school is by finding a golden ticket inside a biscuit. Once you get into this magical school, life isn't easy. You're picked on constantly and if you happen to lose at magic carpet flag ball, you might get expelled.

Then there's whole other weird debacle about a magician who is actually a wizard and was dead for a while but isn't dead anymore because he created the fountain of youth but he won't give it to Dumbledore-Snape (in this, the same person and played by a woman). She puts her soul into a bird and is defended by a purple skull bat that is the evil equivalent of the character that looks like Casper but acts like Tinkerbell. It's a mess.
