1921 Has A Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban Reference That No One Noticed

Disclaimer: This is one of those articles where after reading this, you’ll either want your precious time back or you’ll fall back in your chair, exhale and say ‘duniya kitni hi chu*iya hai yaar’.

Ok. So I watched 1921 yesterday.

Where this story leads is too muddled to be put in words and has something to do with the ‘rooh’ and the ‘badan’ struggling to unite.


Why? Because Amazon Prime Video added it.

To paraphrase Trump, they are amazing. Their video library is YUUUUGGEE! (Agar koi Amazon wala yeh padh raha hai toh feel free to give me some voucher for this plug. Thanks!)

Anyhoo, the movie starts with Karan Kundra trying to commit suicide. We never come back to this sequence and editing it out of the movies has absolutely no impact on the plot. I guess this sequence was important to start off the movie with a song.

Then the plot moves ahead and you see elements from different movies being put into this one thing.

Ab jump scares hai toh obviously inspired hoga hi. So there are multiple moments where the ghost is straight outta lights out.

Everything’s fine but then this happens.

Oh yeah, and there’s a ‘The Shining’ reference as well.


About 20 minutes before the end of the movie, 1921 introduces you to things like astroprojection, which is basically something we’ve seen in a lot of movie, most notably – Doctor Strange.

The movie basically ends with The Sixth Sense wala twist where Karan Kundra was always an astroprojection!(?)


But you’re not here for all these references. You’re here for the bit where 1921 tries really hard to not look ‘inspired’ by Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Karan Kundra is haunted by a light that he can see far off in the jungle.

If that sounds familiar, that’s because you’ve seen it before in the form of a patronus. It can also be compared to Snape trying to guide Harry and his friends when they get stuck in the jungle in Deathly Hallows.

This was a floating ‘light’ in the forest trying to get him to follow it.


This blew my mind last night. Did it do the same to you? Let us know in the comments below.
