Jab Harry Met Sejal - Preview

wogma rating: Even the keen, wait for DVD (?)
quick review:

A few lovely, honest moments; good performances but zero story doesn't work for this “boy meet girl” film.

An engaged girl meets a boy on a Europe trip. She resists, he doesn't insist. Yet, the inevitable happens? Where have we heard that before?

From Anoushka Sharma's Gujrati accent to Shah Rukh Khan's supposedly non-chalant charm – everything seems annoying. There are a few refereshing lines that brought a smile in the trailer, but it feels like there won't be too many more of those in the movie.

This is a first time in a long time that I am extremely skeptical of a romantic film, that too an Imtiaz Ali one. I guess I am relating this more to Jab Tak Hai Jaan than to Jab We Met or Love Aaj Kal. Jab Harry Met Sejal doesn't seem to have the same texture or intensity as Tamasha, Highway, or Rockstar and I sincerely hope there isn't an attempt to touch When Harry Met Sally.

Jab Harry Met Sejal releases on 4 August, 2017.
