User Rating:

Story of Jab Harry Met Sejal is not as complex as we have seen in previous films of Imtiaz Ali. “A tour guide who is lost” this is the plot Imtiaz tried to explore and define love in a new way. Harinder Singh Nehra aka Harry (Shah Rukh Khan) is a tour guide in Holland who is looking for something he has lost. The philosophical twist to this is, he doesn’t knows what he has lost. Then enters our breezy, always saying what’s in her heart Sejal Zaveri (Anushka Sharma).

She was a part of the group Harry tour guided and misses her flight way back to India to find her lost ring. This is her engagement ring she lost and her fiance is pissed about it. At first it will seem stupid, as who misses their flight to find a ring? But as the story develops you’ll ask yourself, “Emotions samajte ho? Emotions?”.

The first half  of Jab Harry Met Sejal will blow the feelings of your heart like a breath of fresh air. Amongst the fun and games of finding the ring, Imtiaz smoothly develops a dark and unilluminated track for Harry’s story. This will raise many questions in you and you’ll wait for the second half. Imtiaz has no need to prove he’s the master of this genre. Watch the movie to know if he has done the justice to a superb base that he sets in first half.

Jab Harry Met Sejal Review: Script Analysis

Jab Harry Met Sejal has its moments; thanks to Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma they make you live those moments in the most passionate way possible. It has a lot of similarities to Imtiaz Ali’s previous films like Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal, Rockstar, Tamasha. In fact, some scenes will take you back to those films.

By the way, Anushka also gets to relive the evergreen ‘Palat’ moment with Shah Rukh Khan. It’s the second half where things fall down the cliff. Not saying it ruined the experience, but with such first half, anyone will expect an extraordinary second half. Imtiaz tries to rush and hence the climax just doesn’t click. Everything has been performed brilliantly but you leave the theater with a feeling of incompleteness. Still, if you see the movie as an overall package, it’s a treat for every cinema lover.

Jab Harry Met Sejal Review: Star Performance

Shah Rukh Khan nails it and proves why no one else could’ve played Harinder Singh Nehra better than him. This is the film you’ll get to see the vintage Shah Rukh Khan. Comedy, romance, drama – he perfects each department. Imtiaz Ali, always, makes you fall in love with his characters and Harry is one of them. King of romance? Yes! SRK proves why he is labeled as one.

Anushka Sharma has looked at her beautiful best in this film. No matter what she says, you can’t just get your eyes off her. She has excelled with her Gujarati accent. Still, in the end, I feel her characters was a bit stereotyped, no matter what justification anyone has. You’ll enter the cinema hall with your heart but come out losing it to Harry and Sejal.

Jab Harry Met Sejal Review: Direction, Music

Years down from now, people will look out at Imtiaz Ali’s films and remember his greatness of narrating stories in a way you can never forget. He says he still does not get the meaning of love but there’s no other than him who can define what love is. He has done his job brilliantly barring few loopholes in the script. I just wish, the second half could’ve lived up the hopes first half set.

Music director, Pritam, is the silent hero of this film. The way songs are binded with the story only tells what this man is able to pull off. Makers have not revealed a lot in the promo, even the entire music album was released yesterday holding some very good songs for your surprise. Penned by Irshad Kamil, the songs are life of this film.

Jab Harry Met Sejal Review: The Last Word

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a film where I wanted to give out few spoilers so you should read and go watch the film. But, I can’t. Take this as a sign and don’t miss this beautiful journey of life with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma.

Three & a half stars!

  1. Watch dis film if u r strictly a ShahRukhKhan or AnushkaSharma fan,others wil hesitate 2 put a ring on dis romantic comedy

  2. why koimoi always support SRK so much..I have seen this movie as well and this is totally BAKWASH movie..and movie has not got the great reviews from critics except you..so stop being biased and review the movie correctly…SRK KE CHAMCHE !!!

  3. Seems like a paid review coz it’s an awful movie.
    Koimoi please do not cheat the people or else this is your pathetic skill of reviewing a substandard garbage.

  4. Just returned from the movie. Man, the movie is so terrible. Except the Punjabi & Gujarati accents of the lead pair, there is nothing remarkable about the movie. Story is all ghisi-piti. Even all the one liners fall flat. Yet another bad movie. Movie will max reach upto 80 Cr.

  5. Yar 1 bat btao ap koimoi walo Salman bhai ki movies itni superb hoti hy but unki movie ko 1 star or 1/2 star milta bs am a also fan of srk but in this time in ki movies utni achi nai jitni bhai jaan ki hy so srk ki movie ko 3/5 star how?rrrrr

  6. Just watch it totally bakvas ghisi piti story time n money both wasted koimoi plz gv genuine reviews srk k chamche

  7. Koimoi srk k tatte chaat lo jaake … Ek aur ghatia flop movie srk se… Behnchod koimoi vaale chutiye h hakle ki tatti ko bhi 4 star dedete hain…

  8. Third class movie with first class artist and director. Giving one star only because some of the sound tracks are good. Watch this movie only if you want to see the exotic location of different parts of Europe which includes Budapest, Prague, Purtgal and many more.

  9. This is heighest rating from all critics..May be intelligent or idiot review….Umesh punwani….
    Taran adarsh-2
    Komal Nahata-2.5
    NDTV-2
    India express-1.5
    TOI-3…..
    Totally mix review….

  10. Mr Umesh Punawani … the first line I read in ur reiew that ” shahrukh can do anything ” …. and then I did not get motivation to read further. … thnx for a being a part of srk active pr agency

  11. Imtiaz Ali is just rehashing his movies. Same old recipes in some new turnarounds and far fetched ideas to make a movie “which makes you go back to his other movies”. So where the hell is the originality? However, I prefer watching movies from Akki, Ajay, Sanjay Dutt and Shah Rukh only. They put themselves in the character’s skin – natural acting. As for Salman Khan, he is still afraid to work opposite talented female leads because of his insecurities and over the top crappy acting.

  12. You just lost my respect with this review. Either you took a hefty price or your judgement is really bad. What a shame cuz I used to love reading your reviews on movies.

  13. Dear Reviewer,

    I am not going accuse you for this review or you have taken money for this.

    but i could not understand , rated 3.5 and cast include SRK / Ansuka still couldn’t do 50 cr over weekend.

  14. It certainly be a good film if director takes a little rest on content. Here are some stupid points that imtiaz can’t overcome .
    1. Same repeated old n faded story like tamasha , jab we met.
    2. Very plain climax
    3. If srk feels lonliness then why did not he ever remember family n relatives.
    4. At least 2 nonsense songs can be deleted n focus on family emotions of anushka n srk in climax
    5. Very plain story telling n no supporting casts
    6. Too much judgling on searching of ring.

  15. I wanna kill the koi moi reviewer. Wasted my hard earned money and precious time reading the review. Really disappointed. Next time I will be careful for sure
