Hari Puttar’ looks like ‘Harry Potter’ inasmuch as the latter as Godzilla sails on a 3 feet by 3 feet raft. “He is only a kidâ€¦” is something that is heard ever too often. But when a kid displays the valor and wit that is no child’s play and the presence of mind that belies his age, it certainly is no kidding matter. Hari Puttar is the awe-inspiring story of one such kid!
