Jab Harry Met Sejal had no morning and afternoon shows.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is Shah Rukh Khan's second release of 2017 after January's Raees. He is seeking solace amidst his loud, chaotic daily business. On the other hand, Anushka Sharma is seen playing the role of a Gujarati chokri, Sejal Jhaveri.
The movie revolves around Harry and Sejal's journey across Europe in search for Sejal's lost ring. This means that audiences have to sit through trips to Lisbon where a cheer squad welcome Harry and Sejal and a wedding in Frankfurt.More news: Stock Getting Punished Mid-Session: Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Limited (NYSE:TEVA)

The music of "Jab Harry Met Sejal" carries the flavor of a romantic comedy and adds up to the experience. My favorite scene in the film has to be where Harry screams at the sea and caves, hearing his own echo, remembering the name of his beloved. He is no achiever sorts and fears commitment. She promptly misplaced it. Rupen sees her carelessness as an indicator of her lack of commitment, so she decides to stay back, find it in the haystack that is Europe and prove to him how much she loves him. Instead, they get into trouble with gangsters in Prague, get kidnapped in Budapest, and give out the notion that Europe is not safe for women travelers unless they are accompanied by formidable-looking men who will protect them. Objectively, there it might not be going forward at desired speed. What makes this film watchable though is the presence of Shah Rukh and Anushka both of who are in top-form in their Punjabi and Gujarati avatars. Despite having his style of mannerisms, he could play Harry like no one else.
A lot has gone right for the film; from the success of mini teaser and the trailer to the chartbuster tracks from Pritam, this is Imtiaz's safest attempt till date. He is, after all, called the King of Romance for a reason. Anushka, on the other hand also impresses easily. She looks stunning and does her simple, naïve girl act convincingly.
The locations are splendid and the cinematography is equally matching. Why it took so long for you to work with SRK? The film moves ahead in such a slow pace that sitting through it would become hard. "I hope everybody loves the Indian twang to what we have given to Diplo's production", said SRK, here, during the song launch at a club late Wednesday night.Imtiaz Ali, helmer of 'Jab Harry Met Sejal, ' too shared that collaborating with DJ Diplo was a dream-come-true. However, one should have an interest for such a genre. There is no big build up and no giant set-up where Harry does meet Sejal.
