Doors, Keys and Magic

“You’re a man looking at the world through a keyhole. You’ve spent your whole life trying to widen that keyhole. To see more. To know more. And now on hearing that it can be widened, in ways you can’t imagine, you reject the possibility.”  
- The Ancient One (Doctor Strange)


If you ask people to think of a number to get help when in trouble, the common answers will either be a 100 or a 911. But there will be a set of people (including me) who will get a number and a picture of a door in our minds. A black wooden door with a brass door knocker with 221B inscribed on it. 

Despite it being fictional, a feeling of comfort and hope rises in our mind on looking at this door. The fact that this door on Baker’s street stands for the assurance of justice provided by Sherlock Holmes, is an example of how doors being subtle, can still represent emotions.

If a purple door with a yellow picture frame around the peephole puts a smile on your face, you must be a member of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S fandom! Even in terms of doors, this door has been through a lot from being hugged by Chandler, slammed on Ross’s face, cut down with an axe and knocked down by Joey. Despite all this, it still continued to spread joy and laughter through all the ten seasons until it finally got its revenge in the last season, by grid locking Joey’s head on Thanksgiving. You don’t mess with Monica’s door.

Another fan favorite must be the three set of doors present in the NYC sanctum also known as the Rotunda of Gateways from the MCU. The device works magically by opening portals to any location present on Earth. Doctor Strange uses the Gateway to fight off the Dormammu’s disciples when they try to invade the sanctum. I must say it’s quite a creative way to fight your enemies and send them to the extreme ends of the world. 

Harry Potter and his friends escape from Hogwarts and follow a trail planted in his head by Lord Voldemort and try to rescue Sirius Black being held captive in the Department of Mysteries. And one must have known to not trust the Dark Lord in the first place but they reach the department in the Ministry of Magic to find it filled with hundreds of magical doors hiding its own Dark secrets in the mysterious corridor.

The scene is quite wonderful as the doors continue to change and making it impossible to find the exit. Meanwhile the Dumbledore’s Army run into some nasty surprises and a group of Death Eaters waiting to steal the prophecy that Harry takes off the shelf. It leads to a dangerous duel between the wizards and witches. Could have paid attention to your “extra” Potions classes, Harry.

So, I hope you enjoyed reading about the various portrayals of doors in movies and TV shows and next time, please do think twice before you slam a door shut. You don’t want to get in the bad side of one and get stuck in another world or just have it fall on top of you.
