Besides one scene with Harry's tour group colleague Mayank (Aru Krishansh Verma), the only actors you see throughout the first half are Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma who prattle on about nothing at all.
The Imtiaz Ali film was expected to be highly entertaining with the add-on magical essence by the ace director. However, Sejal laughs it off and is adamant that he should accompany her in finding her lost ring. After visiting Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Jodhpur and Jaipur, the team went all the way to Varanasi and promoted their film with great pomp and show.
Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma today visited Varanasi to promote their upcoming movie "Jab Harry Met Sejal". The actress smiled and revealed, "There's a scene right in the beginning of the film where she (Sejal) is sitting in the vehicle with Harry".
"Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have acted really well, both of them are the only highlights in the film".
However, the movie at run time 144 minutes is a bit too long and could have been much shorter. It is a delighting story, with lovely performances by Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka. The two actors look just ideal and comfortable enough with each other and their chemistry takes you to an altogether different world of dreams.
Generally, urban rom-com's don't take huge openings at the box office and same is the case with JabHarryy Met Sejal. Jab Harry Met Sejal (JHMS) follows the same route with Harry, a womaniser, falling in love with Sejal, a highly energetic lawyer who's clear she won't break off her engagement.
Last week there were rumours that the film would not release on Thursday in Dubai and UAE. Sejal hires the tour guide Harry (Shah Rukh) who took them along Europe to fetch her ring and what happens in between is everybody's guess.
Most SRK fans had booked their tickets in advance while others queued outside theatres to get them.
Its a "depressing" time for the Hindi film industry as Bollywoods bigwigs like Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have failed to translate their star power into promising box office collections. She has tried her best to get into the Gujarati accent but is often seen faltering. Harry doesn't want to be with her and she won't leave him. Shah Rukh Khan has already had a release this year but the gangster drama Raees managed to earn about Rs 133 crore in its entire lifetime. The trailers are slightly misleading in terms of the expectations, but the movie eventually offers much more and make you enjoy their travel.
