OneWordReview… #JabHarryMetSejal: Unimpressive. Good performances… Stunning locales… Bland and boring screenplay… Too many songs. With SRK-Anushka, Imtiaz Ali could’ve hit the ball out of the park with a solid script. Sadly, he loses this golden opportunity.
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.Watch or Not?: Absolutely! Overall this film is something shouldn’t be missed especially by people who digest romantic dramas well
If there is anything we know about Imtiaz Ali’s love stories, it is that they are not for everyone.’Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is shot in the beautiful locations of Prague, Berlin, Holland, Amsterdam. So, while you are lost wondering where the movie is heading, the scenic beauty keeps you hooked. The movie goes through its ebb and flow, and all you can do is enjoy the good bits, till they last.So, if you are a fan of the leading actors or have a Sufi heart, go watch this movie.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is a film you want to like but when you see the ‘Babe becoming Babita’ formula repeated yet again, you wonder why a filmmaker, known for his progressive, unusual films succumbs to clichés like this one.I go back to the sublime Rockstar that ended with a Sufi quote – ‘Beyond good and bad, there is a field, I will meet you there’. This film espouses the beautiful thought of ‘Home is a Person’ . Wish the script went beyond these one-liners and took us on a unique journey with a Geet or a Jordan instead of this been-there-done-that European tour.
Khaleej Times (2.5/5)
It breaks my heart to write this, but Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, the rakish matinee idol who could romance a stone with an inherent sexiness and suaveness, has become rusty. As far as stories go, there’s not much for the actors to hold on to, but the pair manages to keep us hooked in the first half.But the second half spirals into this cloyingly intense and melodramatic territory.
The script is wafer-thin and it’s been done to death by none other than Imtiaz Ali in each of his earlier films—be it Jab We Met, Cocktail or the recent Tamasha. It’s the routine girl is engaged elsewhere story but she discovers half-way through the film that she is actually attracted to someone else. In this case, Sejal is engaged to Rupen but actually ends up falling for Harry. What makes this film watchable though is the presence of Shah Rukh and Anushka both of who are in top-form in their Punjabi and Gujarati avatars. In fact, SRK is like old wine, the more he matures, the better he loves. But the chemistry between Anushka and him is not crackling for sure
