JHMS Review by Gulf News

Rating: 2.5/5

The cinematography that highlights the beauty of a handful European countries is pleasing to watch. But we wish that all that energy and love was devoted to developing a cracking love story. Watch this film if you are strictly a Shah Rukh Khan or Anushka Sharma fan. Others will hesitate to put a ring on this romantic comedy.

Harry seeks 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 takes off. 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 an off-colour megastar trying hard to get going.

‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is shot in the beautiful locations of Prague, Berlin, Holland, Amsterdam. So, while you are lost wondering where the movie is heading, the scenic beauty keeps you hooked. The movie goes through its ebb and flow, and all you can do is enjoy the good bits, till they last. So, if you are a fan of the leading actors or have a Sufi heart, go watch this movie.

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a film you want to like but when you see the ‘Babe becoming Babita’ formula repeated yet again, you wonder why a filmmaker, known for his progressive, unusual films succumbs to clichés like this one. I go back to the sublime Rockstar that ended with a Sufi quote – ‘Beyond good and bad, there is a field, I will meet you there’. This film espouses the beautiful thought of  ‘Home is a Person’ . Wish the script went beyond these one-liners and took us on a unique journey with a Geet or a Jordan instead of this been-there-done-that European tour.

Sound advice here would be that you actually buy yourself a tour ticket to Europe and soak in the sights for real. But, if you want to settle for a cheaper option of touring the continent inside a cinema hall, buy yourself a JHMS ticket and get transported to the land of make-believe captured indulgently by cinematographer K U Mohanan, with the added advantage of a Punjabi `munda’ playing your friend, philosopher, lover and guide.

One Word: Unimpressive. Good performances… Stunning locales… Bland and boring screenplay… Too many songs. With SRK-Anushka, Imtiaz Ali could’ve hit the ball out of the park with a solid script. Sadly, he loses this golden opportunity.

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a film where I wanted to give out few spoilers so you should read and go watch the film. But, I can’t. Take this as a sign and don’t miss this beautiful journey of life with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma. Overall this film is something shouldn’t be missed especially by people who digest romantic dramas well.

JHMS Review by Bollywood Life

Rating: 3.5/5

Imtiaz Ali’s vision and SRK’s passion for romance is truly a lethal combination that lights up every single frame of the film. Jab Harry Met Sejal is all heart and deserves a watch for Shah Rukh and Anushka‘s crackling chemistry that takes the film to another level. Imtiaz Ali’s this journey is definitely worth the price of your ticket.

JHMS Review by Hindustan Times

Rating: 2/5

Jab Harry Met Sejal is absolutely banal with some hummable tunes. It’s a big disappointment to see Shah Rukh Khan returning to his comfort zone and yet not performing at the top of his powers. Pritam’s songs can do some patchwork, but nothing can rescue this 143-minute of lethargic storytelling. I haven’t found what I was seeking, looks like you won’t either.

JHMS Review by Mid-day

Rating: 2.5/5

Jab Harry Met Sejal’ has a few genuinely ‘cool’ encounters between the lovers. But these are too spaced out and too far in-between to engage us in the couple’s destined marriage. What clutters the corridors of this posh-looking touristic ‘vilaayat-darshan’ are the winking flirty exchanges which lead nowhere. A big disappointment for both the fans of Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali. They both need to think about what to do next. In separate rooms, please.

JHSM Review by Bollywood Hungama

Rating: 2/5

On the whole, JAB HARRY MET SEJAL has its moments. But the film is riddled with cliches and flaws that takes the film down, thanks to the poor script. At the box office, the film might have a good weekend but will struggle in the weekdays and in Week 2.

  5. Awesome movie …..critics are wrong…ain’t got their paycheck I think….go for it lovely movie

  6. Maza a gaya sare jabra fans come me fan ko to cross karo hakla fans

  7. Now where is vishal 11 August ko theatre is out because Akshay is arriving to rule August just like he ruled in 2008 by Sik, 2016 by Rustom

  8. Just saw the movie yaaro saridon tablet leke jao bakwas movie except performances,cinematography and locations save yo money srk plz dont try such kind of movies from next time kya hua aap ke movie selection ko another flop for srk and buget is too high so recovery is impossible tuesday se collections will be down may gain some collection on monday due to rakhi otherwise disaster hoga….

  9. Great movie..good direction and awesome acting in the movie.
    Since this movie is a romantic genre people expecting collection like masala movies which totatly unfair.
    Masala movies are adventurous in nature which give thrills whereas romantic movies are emotional in nature which take time to grow.
    Masala is like whiskey..Romantic is wine.

  10. Good reviews are comming very sad to to few critics who give positive revies to HNY bashing JHMS film may not commercial but worth watching, Masterpiece for class lover

  11. I will never follow or care of critics.any person when watching movie in theatre they are the right deciders to say about any movie.actually these critics are responsible of destroying bollywood.they are part of mafia just demanding money for writing good rating.like krk.taran adarsh.komal nehta and some others.just one word.outstanding movie

  12. Going from the reviews, apparently it seems that Imtiaz Ali ruined it and SRK is equally responsible (or even more) for selecting such movie. My final view about movie after I watch it tomorrow.

    maine kaha tha ki yeh movie thik nahin hain…. the last movie i saw for SRK was Chak DE india which really really derserves for SRK ,,,but after this SRK stardom is going down and down….

  14. Its a huge disappointment for Imtiaz Ali. His worst film ever. No specific characterization of any character. No good story and screenplay. Performance is fine but its like a designed cherry on a tasteless cake.

  15. bollywood arena aur bhi nagative reviews aaye hai usko bhi add kijia iss me like indian express 1.5/5
