Jab We Met - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

An entertaining first half that establishes the characters and an emotionally charged second half keeps you interested in a rather regular love story. The story is as far from reality as can be, but then, that is what escapist cinema is all about, right?
