Jab Harry met Segal : Ordinary or Plagiarized

Here are the some of the plus points about the Jab Harry Met Sejal film. Sejal's reasons for staying back, her pile-on behaviour, Harry's back story, her carelessness as she wanders lonely streets and darkened nightclubs in alien lands - none of it is credible and frankly, neither Sharma nor Khan appears convinced of why Sejal and Harry do what they do.

Though first half boasts of a fun vibe attached to the narration, however, since the film does not have a well-defined plot, it is hard to relate to the otherwise fascinating characters. Earlier, a trade expert Sumit Kadel predicted, "Jab Harry Met Sejal may surpass Raees and Dilwale given the condition that the content has been liked by the audience". The film has been shot in some exotic locations that add more colour to the love story. Though they are completely opposite in nature, they start falling for each other. Known for films with a unique subject and different story-line than what we usually see in a Bollywood films, Imtiaz has played safe cards here.

Amod Mehra told the tabloid that since there have not been too many good films in the recent past, the audience is not shying away from splashing money for this much-awaited film. "In the end, it's all about what you choose".

That is just one of the "WTF" moments, by the way! Isn't it too soon? My favorite scene in the film has to be where Harry screams at the sea and caves, hearing his own echo, remembering the name of his beloved. Anushka leave Harry for her fiance? or She breaks her engagement for her love? Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge was more sensitive to the woman's character and did not portray her as the merely one-dimensional damsel in distress. This makes her mysterious, despite her near-comical collision with Harry.

Prince Philip: Life In Pictures
The Telegraph published a pre-written piece with the headline "HOLD HOLD HOLD Prince Philip , Duke of Edinburgh , dies aged XX". He has given almost 5,500 speeches, made more than 600 overseas trips and served as patron for almost 800 organizations.


Also, we see glimpses of flashbacks of Punjab, where Harry comes from. Though both the lead actors are ace performers, Shah Rukh does not seem to get out of his comfort zone. This looks like a shallow attempt at giving his character some depth. If you are thinking that he has come up with a successful and interesting rom-com, you can not be more wrong.

Jab Harrry Met Sejal is released in 3500+ screens in India and good number of screens in overseas.

Harry (Shah Rukh Khan) is a tour guide in Europe, busy in taking tourists from one beauty spot to the other.

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a lost cause from the word go.
