Jab harry met Sejal : Review 

Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma

Director: Imtiaz Ali

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

First half: breezy and unabashedly banal.

 Second half: riddled with toe-curling romantic mush. 

Sum total: a wayward, winding journey without maps that weaves concentric circles around sweet nothings and empty prittle-prattle. That, in a nutshell, is Imtiaz Ali’s perambulatory rom-com Jab Harry Met Sejal. It leaves you wishing they hadn’t met.

Harry is in search of true love. Sejal, too, is on a voyage of discovery. Do they get what they are looking for? Not a chance in hell. So flabby is this flighty film that it moves only in hops and skips. It never really gets off the ground.


Verdict : Jab Harry Met Sejal is cinema’s equivalent of a shiny bauble that glitters wholly in vain. Watch it only if you fancy a vicarious romp through Europe with a megastar trying hard to get going.
