7 Harry Potter spells in hindi that will bewitch you for life
The adventures of Harry Potter has been imprinted in our mind and hearts like nothing ever can. The spells have kept us enchanted and the journey is in our memories. The days of Diagon Alley, Leaky Cauldron and Number 12 Grimmauld Place might be over but the experiences and emotions are forever. And now when the series is over, I have soft heart for evil people of Harry Potter Universe such as Draco Malfoy, Bellatrix Lestrange and even Voldemort.
And any other ardent Indian fanboy of Harry Potter, I was introduced to the magical series in my early childhood. The days were really old when we still played Dave and listened to music on audio cassettes. So naturally, we got the hindi dubbed edition of the movie. And let me clear you, the out of the universe experience that the movie provides in its original edition was no less. The flamboyance of dialogues and magnificent aura of characters were even more intense if not less than the original movie.
If the translation is an important aspect of art and entertainment, we cannot ignore a popular belief, ‘poetry is something that gets lost in its translation’. We understand that English is not everyone’s cup of tea in India and therefore English films get translated in vernacular languages to reach a bigger number of audiences. Take the Harry Potter paradigm. It doesn’t matter if one has read the book or not because of language problems; one can still watch all its movie parts in Hindi.
But things take a hilarious turn when each and every word is translated in Hindi. The Potter series wasn’t that bad in Hindi, but the translated ‘Hindi Spells’ somewhere spoilt it, though in a humorous way. We wish that just like they skipped the translation Alohomora (the spell that wasn’t translated) in the Potter films, they should have left the other spells as well. We bring you the most mind boggling spells from Harry Potter that lost their charisma the moment they got translated into Hindi.
Original Spell: Lumos
The Wand-Lighting Charm is simple, but requires concentration. Take care not to accidentally set your wand alight as damage of this kind can be permanent. If in any doubt about your abilities you would do better to buy yourself a magic lantern. When the light went off in harry’s room during the night, he used the spell to look into his family’s album and relive the memories.
Probably we had the equally incandescent expressions as this Ron Weasley’s spell had which meant to create a glow.
पितृ देव संरक्षणम
Original Spell: Expecto Patronum
Maybe this salt of Sanskrit would have made Harry’s wand ticklish instead of obedient. This was a difficult spell but the only defence against the Dementors. It is evident from old woodcuts and scrolls that the Patronus Charm has been used since ancient times. Therefore, it is unknown who created it, or when it was first invented. The charm also has a long association with those fighting for lofty or noble causes (those able to produce corporeal Patronuses were often elected to high office within the Wizengamot and Ministry of Magic).
Original Spell: Confingro
Not that pretty, as you thought of!!! Configaro aka Pawakam burned waves in fire. Pettigrew may have used an extremely powerful blasting curse to decimate a street and kill twelve Muggles at once while evading Sirius Black, who was blamed for the crimes and Pettigrew’s alleged death.
Original Spell: Bombarda
Umbridge, your cruelty embellished when you said Loh-Bhasmam instead of Bombarda!!!
Bombarda is the incantation of a charm used to provoke small explosions; one use for this explosion is to blast open sealed doors or to blow bars off of windows. The incantation Bombarda Maxima is a stronger, more powerful variation of this spell.
Scorpius Malfoy noted that the explosions conjured up by Bombarda are rather noisy, and thus inconvenient for when trying to destroy something stealthily.
Original Spell: Imperio
Well, that spell was literally hypnotic, Bellatrix!!! The Imperius Curse (Imperio) is a tool of the Dark Arts, and is one of the three Unforgivable Curses. It is one of the most powerful and sinister spells known to wizardkind. When cast successfully, the curse places the victim completely under the caster’s control, though a person with exceptional strength of will is capable of resisting it.
The fact that the curse can be defended against makes it unique amongst the Unforgivable Curses. It is also unique in that it is the least harmful of the curses (unless one counts the complete lack of free will) except if performed improperly.
Original Spell: Expelliarmus
Drop you humour hammers and go Nirastra!!! This spell takes away the weapons from the target one. he Disarming Charm, also known as the Expelliarmus Spell or Disarming Spell (Expelliarmus) was a defensive charm which forced the victim to release whatever they were holding at the time. It is common to see this spell used in duels, to make an opponent release their wand.
Original Spell: Avada Kedavra
Voldemort, that killed us twice!!! Along with the Cruciatus and Imperius curses, the Killing Curse is known as one of the most terrible and sinister curses in the wizarding world. After the Wizards’ Council was reformed into the Ministry of Magic tighter restrictions were placed on the use of certain kinds of magic. The Killing Curse was deemed by the Ministry to be Dark magic and along with the Cruciatus and Imperius curses, were declared “unforgivable” in 1717, with the Killing Curse considered to be the most deadly of the three. Use of any Unforgivable curse on a human would carry the punishment of a life sentence in Azkaban.
