Jab Harry Met Sejal JHMS review marks the release of the Imtiaz Ali directorial Jab Harry Met Sejal which stars Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma as the lead pair for the 3rd time after Yash Raj’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Known to make films that have influences of Rumi’s poetry, Imtiaz Ali’s JHMS is no different and the tag line for the film ‘What you seek is seeking you’ is testament to the same fact. The director has tagged this particular film of his as being ‘light’ when compared to his previous films like Rockstar and Tamasha that dealt with more complex issues that tugged at your heart.
But like most of his previous ones, JHMS also is the tale of self-discovery and the complexities of love. Shah Rukh Khan plays Harry (Harinder Singh Nehra) who is a tour guide in Europe far away from his the prying eyes of this family back in Punjab. Anushka Sharma plays Sejal who is an affluent gujarati girl who is engaged to marry someone else. She travels to Europe and ends up losing her engagement ring. She then confides in her tour guide Harry and seeks his help in finding the ring, without which she refuses to leave for India. And as we can guess, Harry falls head over heels for Sejal in the process of finding her lost ring.
Harry has his set of issues in life and Sejal unknowingly in her quirky ways, helps him in accepting things that he has been running away from all his life. JHMS can be termed as Imtiaz Ali’s most box office friendly film till date because of its breezy, light and funny tone. It is definitely not as hard hitting as his previous flick Tamasha. Anushka Sharma nails her part as the adorable self assured gujju girl and Shah Rukh Khan shines under Imtiaz Ali’s style of filmmaking. This was a director-actor combo that was highly anticipated and both of them deliver on the expectations.
Make Harry Met Sejal your weekend watch for its incredible performances and direction. Beautiful cinematography that shows Europe in a different light which is as refreshing as the film’s actors. The bonus to all this is ofcourse, the chartbuster music rendered by Pritam that is already on top of all music charts.
