JHMS Review by Gulf News
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.
JHMS Review by Taran Adarsh
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 Hindustan Times
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
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
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.
