See all my film reviews here.
I was very much looking forward to watching the Indian language film Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017) but the film turned out to be something of a disappointment.
Jab Harry Met Sejal has all the makings of a good romantic comedy but it just doesn’t make it. The film is based around the two lead actors, Shah Rukh Khan (Harry) and Anushka Sharma (Sejal) as they wander around Europe looking for Sejal’s lost engagement ring. I sensed that both lead actors – two highly accomplished actors – were doing their level best to move the film along but the script is bitty and disjointed. The story line is flimsy. Now, for any romantic comedy, you have to suspend belief from time to time, but this film asks too much of the audience. This is a pity because the film could have been so much better.
I give this film the PhotoNomad 6/10 award.
