Jab Harry Met Sejal Review: SRK, Anushka’s Stellar Performances Will Leave You Dreamy Eyed
Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma
Director: Imtiaz Ali
Music Director: Pritam
When Shah Rukh Khan’s romantic mode is on, it’s difficult to get your eyes off him. And after experimenting a lot with various film genres, he is back with a full-fledged romantic film, and how!
Jab Harry Met Sejal is a journey of self-discovery for both Harinder Singh Nehra a.k.a Harry a.k.a Shah Rukh and Sejal a.k.a Anushka Sharma.
Harry is a tour guide in Europe who reluctantly helps Sejal find her lost engagement ring. But in the process, he finds himself. And Imtiaz Ali, whose love stories are never as simple, discovered a new side of lover-boy SRK.
Harry is very unlike Raj and Rahul. He is not trying to play young and cool. His character is rather matured, and at the same time very lonely. His entry wasn’t grand and there was no signature pose of his, and there were no close ups of his dimples too. And despite all of this, he still creates magic. His eyes express his feelings just like the dialogues penned by Imitaz do. He is complicated and wears too many layers – of intensity and humour. He is romantic, chivalrous, sleazy and cheap – all at the same time. And there are several moments you will find him very adorable.
Sejal on the other hand is a talkative, confused yet cute Gujarati girl. She has confidence issues and her immaturity is what makes Harry very protective of her. And she too, halfway through discovers who her soulmate really is.
The chemistry Harry shares with Sejal is hot! They look extremely good together and there is a certain amount of freshness in their characters. You will not hear either of them saying ‘I love you,’ but the vibes they share with each other, they way they look at each other says it all – you will not be able to take your eyes off them!
Shot in the very picturesque Europe, the backdrops of all the scenes are amazing. The film’s music has a good mixture of love songs and party numbers.
In short, the film is a very happy, romantic and emotional comedy that will take you on the beautiful journey of love. It is a must watch!
Filmievents give it 4/5.
