Charmed by wizardry

Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire airs at 9 pm on HBO on December 8. The movie stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Ralph Fiennes. It’s Harry Potter’s fourth term at Hogwarts’ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Harry, Ron and Hermoine look forward to the international Quidditch finals.

In the meantime, Harry dreams of spending time with the alluring Cho Chang. He wants to be a normal 14-year-old wizard but Harry is not normal.

For the first time in hundreds of years, a competition will be held between three schools of wizardry and contestants will be magically chosen for the very dangerous event.

Now, as Harry’s lightning scar burns with the presence of Lord Voldemort, the Goblet of Fire makes its final selection — Harry Potter. 

Into bride’s shoes again

Where there is reality, there is Rakhi Sawant. Apparently, Rakhi Sawant has been approached by Star Plus for the finale of the show Perfect Bride. It is surprising to see her on the show when her own relationship status seems unclear. The last time Rakhi was just a step away from being the perfect bride on another reality show, we wonder what help she can be to the would be brides on Perfect Bride. But with Rakhi’s presence on the finale, the show is surely going to be more fun.

The big question is will someone actually land up being the Perfect Bride or is this going to be another reality show on weddings where everything except the wedding takes place? Will Star Plus keep up to its promise of hosting a marriage for the first time on the television screens? Well let’s wait and wish all the best to the couples.

Perfect Brides airs every Monday to Friday at 10.30 pm and on Saturdays and Sundays at 10 pm.
