Story-Line of Jab Harry Met Sejal
Harry is a Punjabi tour guide, who is seemingly an easy on the eye charming guy full of life. But he is lost and lonely on the inside. Sejal on the other hand is a cheerful young Gujarati girl out on a vacation to Europe with her family. When Sejal is just about to board her flight back to India, she realizes her engagement ring is nowhere to be found. She is determined to find her lost ring and sets off on a quest with the same tour guide (Harry) to all the places she had visited with her family on the vacation. The journey turns out to be the best journey they’ve ever had.

Buy yourself some quality time to know how love develops between the two. And not to miss, The Kiss!

Our Review
Jab Harry Met Sejal is shot in a light mood. The movie is a normal Bollywood rom-com with no extraordinary attempts. SRK has been ruling bollywood as the proclaimed ‘King’ and he proves this with his performance in his most anticipated film of the year. Anushka proves her mettle with her versatility in JHMS. SRK’s and Anushka’s chemistry in JHMS is flawless and highly enviable. While the first half of the movie is a charming tell-tale, the second part is a little too obvious to predict. And if you happen to be an Imtiaz Ali fan, you already know the climax!

Though the story of the movie is just average, all actors have delivered good performance. The movie however, has not reached the benchmark an SRK starrer has set for itself. Also, get ready to fall in love with the shoot locations!

We give it a 2.5/5 star rating!

Watch the official trailer


On 4th August 2017, Jab Harry Met Sejal is clashing with Shankar Raman’s ‘Gurgoan’ at the box office. The First Day collection will probably stand between Rupees 15-20 Crore with an expected lifetime collection of Rupees 150 Crore+.

The biggest USP of Jab Harry Met Sejal is Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan’s fans are already drooling over his mature yet tempting look with stubble in the movie. Anushka’s and Shah Rukh’s collaboration has never failed to impress the box office ever before. To sum it up, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is a good watch!
