Jab Harry Met Sejal which is a treat of Shahrukh Khan this year stars Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma and is directed by Imtiaz Ali. It is one of the biggest Bollywood releases this year. Here is the most expecting Jab Harry Met Sejal movie review.
Jab Harry Met Sejal Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Chandan Roy Sanyal
Jab Harry Met Sejal Director: Imtiaz Ali
Imtiaz Ali’s latest offering Jab Harry Met Sejal, starring King Khan and the PK girl touches those high points only very intermittently. Thus making this movie a sadly missed opportunity. Ali’s inclination towards creating mood and perky dialogue, and SRK magic and the chemistry of King Khan and Anushka, all have worked well together. But, somehow missed the mark of expectations!
If you are seeking recent Bollywood reference points then Jab Harry Met Sejal is a cross between Imtiaz Ali’s own Tamasha, Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobaara and, somewhat more vaguely, Dear Zindagi. If you are able to digest the whole sole romantic drama then this movie is just for you with a cherry on the cake, that’s SRK- King of Romance!
Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie Review
Jab Harry Met Sejal is quite predictable as the story floats, like most of the Bollywood movies are. Yet, some manage to entertain and this movie to some extent. Tour guide Harry (Shah Rukh Khan) makes a living as a tourist guide by tagging people along with Indian groups on holiday in Europe. His job is to click photos for them and he hopes to earn that intangible ‘something’ that he is missing. He is actually in search of ‘TRUE LOVE’.
Harry meets Sejal (Anushka Sharma) when the latter loses her engagement ring. However, her whole family takes off to India. She has deceptively told her parents that she will come back to the India only when she finds her engagement ring back.
Thereafter, the journey begins with a ‘tour guide who is lost’ seeking true love, the missing thing in his life and the Gujarati girl who is in ‘need of guidance’ for her engagement ring.
Imtiaz Ali has done something that he has already done earlier. Somehow he has given us the Dharma Productions film like a story that is packed with a thousand songs and romantic dialogues and some of the grating characters on the horizon.

What’s good in the Movie – Jab Harry Met Sejal?
However, what makes this romantically confusing flick watchable is the presence of the Romance King- Shah Rukh and the bubbly Anushka. Both of them are in top-form in their Punjabi and Gujarati avatars.
In fact, Baadshah of Bollywood is now like an old wine. The more he matures, the better he performs the romances with his heroine, no matter if she is his half aged. He’s just irresistible!
Although everything has been enacted brilliantly, you will leave the theater with a feeling of emptiness.
Jab Harry Met Sejal Review: Star Performance
Shah Rukh Khan has proved that yes, he is the KING of ROMANCE. It can be asserted that no one else could’ve played Harinder Singh Nehra better than him. In this film, you’ll get to see the old version of Shah Rukh Khan, the perfect package of Comedy, romance, drama. He perfects each department.
Actually, the credit goes to Imtiaz Ali who always makes the viewers fall in love with his characters and no wonder, Harry is one of them.

Anushka Sharma is looking at her beautiful best in this movie. She has excelled with her Gujarati accent and made everyone love that cute language.
Still, concluding the Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie review, I feel that her character in the movie is a bit stereotyped, no matter whatever reason anyone of you may have after watching it.
If you are going to watch this movie then it is an overall package, a treat for every cinema lover.
