Today it is 21 years since the first Harry Potter book was published by J.K. Rowling and it has been a world of adventures for kids and adults since then. There are probably a handful of 90’s kids who haven’t used a HP reference in their lives or been exposed to the world of magic through books or movies from the #HP series. Now, Harry’s story is over and Rowling has helped us understand the background of her magical renderings through the prequel story in her latest books.
We have to say, it is one of the best things that could ever happen. A world of fantasy that draws comparisons with Narnia or LOTR by J.R.R.Tolkien, cannot just be left to go into oblivion, right?
We are so thrilled to have seen the second edition of Fantastic Beasts on a large screen with phenomenal surround sound in the cozy comfort of Inox theatre. While you may have your tickets booked already for the new release today or for the weekend, here is a little dope on what to expect without being too revealing.
Drawing from where we left of in ‘Fantastic Beasts and where to find them’, the story starts with a series of events leading up to yet another adventure by Newt Scamander, obviously commissioned by none other than Albus Dumbledore. Fantastic Beasts 2 is however not so much about the younger Dumbledore, played by the phenomenal Jude Law. It is a story of untold emotions and memories, finding new creatures that will take your breath away as Newt sets on a journey to Paris to find Credence, the obscurus.
A few refreshing new faces add charm to the storytelling where you see Theseus Scamander, Newt’s elder brother come into the picture as a devoted yet headstrong Ministry Official. A turning point will come with the introduction of Leta Lestrange, played by the beautiful Zoe Kravitz. You may remember her from the role of Toast from Mad Max: Fury Road. The Lestrange family has been a key element of the plot even in the HP series and it is only admirable that the backstory is woven so well with Leta’s past having a serious impact on Credence’s questions about his identity. One more interesting addition is the character of Nagini, played here by the slender and pretty Claudia Kim. You know who Nagini is, don’t you? (Hint there)
The star-studded cast has Johnny Depp as Grindelwald who predictably does a marvellous job of being dramatic where its needed. Honestly we would have liked a little more of Jude Law as the charming middle-aged Dumbledore, but resting assured that there will be more of him in the next edition. That is all we are going to tell you about the story, period. Expect to have comic relief amidst the serious turn of events leading up to an unfathomable discovery of Credence’s true identity, as elaborated by Grindelwald which leaves us shocked and stunned. To tell you the truth, we still haven’t been able to digest, relate, emancipate or understand it. But we will leave it to you to believe or not.
Coming back to the wonderful movie experience at INOX, here is what we loved!
We watched Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald at Inox R-City Mall, Ghatkopar in Mumbai. It is a special theatre because of the beautifully lit lobby area which automatically transports you to a fantasy world. The interiors are absolutely gorgeous, especially the lighting design. Its a 7 star luxury experience of theatres, we would say.
So book your tickets now and go watch this much awaited fantasy film with your family, friends, kids of friends and everyone else at Inox!

Beauty regimes are terribly difficult to maintain for a person who has never been aware of the many products available, and emphatically lacking the knowledge of what to choose. It doesn’t mean we don’t have problems!
We are traveling like nomads, with packed and unpacked bags strewn around our house every week. To be honest with you, doing laundry is enough work already! Let alone packing skincare stuff in each bag. But like they say, where there is a will, there must be a way.
Himalaya Wellness has always been a basic go-to for us starting from shampoos, facewashes and even their latest face wipes which works wonders when you don’t have a setup to get ready on a crazy mountain hike. When they sent us a box of goodness with four variants of their #HimalayaFreshStart range facewashes, kid you not, I was elated. It gave me an opportunity to pack one each in each bag, just to avoid the hassle of transferring items from one to another!
The gel texture of the facewash does wonders to an oily skin. The one situation i suppose all of you can relate to very very closely. After waking up from sleep, or coming back from a tedious day on the road, this product does amazing in removing that dirty extra oil on my face. Believe it or not, even the man who doesn’t like using any other products than a simple facewash found this thing so very useful!
We love the flavours too – Peach, Blueberry, Strawberry and Lemon. So much so that ended up gifting the lemon to a friend who has chronic acne and oil issues with her face. She reported no breakouts or side effects from using this natural product.
There are many out there who are not as savvy as us when it comes to skincare regime and find it painful to choose from so many options available in the market. Himalaya Fresh Start Oil clear facewash is your one go-to if you don’t prefer using a lot of products. Having a clean face itself can add a lot to your skin health. Its a lot cheaper than fancy products and does it’s job really well, in keeping your face oil free. #StayOilFreeStayFresh this season with these fragrant and fruity range from Himalaya.
Price: INR 75 for 50 ml / INR 140 for 100 ml
Himalaya Fresh Start Oil Clear Face Wash is a special formulation with an effective blend of Blueberry/Peach/Lemon/Strawberry and gooseberry. It contains natural beads to help remove excess oil and impurities, leaving the face soft, healthy and fresh.
