Jab Harry Met Sejal


One of the biggest releases of 2017, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ directed by Imtiaz Ali and starring ANushka Sharma and Shahrukh Khan in the lead roles are finally out for us to decide its fortune. The big question is whether the most awaited film of the year been able to live up to our expectation and unfortunately our answer will for sure disappoint you. When the combination of three comes together we are bound to make our mind that some masterpiece is in the making but we sometimes forget that a powerful script is the success factor of a film.

In a time less than three hours, Imtiaz Ali will take you on a world tour, it starts from Europe, seen Budapest, Prague, Berlin, Lisbon, Vienna, from the Amalfi coast to the Atlantic, from the Mediterranean to the North Sea. Next that made ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ a boring outing is the amount of songs put in the movie. It seems more than dialogue there are songs in the film.

‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is a film about two strangers Harry a Punjabi tour guide played by Shahrukh Khan and a Gujarati engaged girl SejalJhaveriplayed by Anushka Sharma. Sejal is engaged and while boarding back to India from her Europe tour with her family, she realized that her engagement ring is lost. She decided to stay back and only go back once she gets her ring. Helping her in her mission to find the ring is the honest tour guide, who suffered ample heartbreaks. Then follows the various incidents and an array of emotions flow which brings Harry and Sejal closer to one another.

‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ doesn’t offer anything new. Audience wants to see something more from the king of romance which the superstar fails to deliver over and again. After watching the flick, the impression of the cine-goers is like ‘Oh, the same....’ Shahrukh has survived 25 years in the industry but with this new release, King Khan proved that he has smoothing news in store to offer his fans.

The case with Anushka Sharma is also the same. Undoubtedly, Anushka is full of energy and is free-flowing. She pours soul to her character but audience wants to see her in different avatar. In ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, she is compared with Kareena Kapoor Khan of ‘Jab We Met’ and when comparison come votes gets divided.

Speaking about the ace director Imtiaz Ali, regrettably Imtiaz fails to brings alive the chemistry between Shahrukh and Anushka beautifully on-screen, thereby pushing the film far behind from box-office success.

But the other department of the film excels. K.U. Mohanan’s cinematography is A-rate and production values are also high. Pritam’s composition might help the film from drowning.

In the nutshell, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is quite a boredom. It turns out to be big disaster.
