Jab Harry met Sejal

I give this movie 2.5/10.

It starts funny but by the time it ends, either you have an obligation to sit through the movie or you are already out of the theatre.

I found the beginning to be funny, Anushka Sharma is amazing in the movie but it is cringeworthy to see her romancing Shahrukh Khan, I just did not see them as a couple in this movie, post interval you can barely tolerate it, there is unnecessary drama, a movie that could have easily ended in 90 minutes is dragged and dragged.

Imtiaz Ali, is he really the director who gave us Jab we met and rock star? he seems to have lost his path or his art because this in no way feels like the fun meaningful movies he makes.

Anushka Sharma is amazing in JHMS, her acting skill is what keeps this movie bearable, she has nailed the Gujarati accent, she is funny and gorgeous,she is the star of this movie, her character, Sejal is hilarious in the beginning, she sticks to her character so perfectly, you would believe sejal is her by the end of the movie.Sejal is a fun character, strong but difficult to identify with.

Shahrukh has acted well I believe, he is, after all, an amazing actor, but their pairing is weird, not even considering the age gap, the romance felt forced.

There were some scenes that were unexpected, but the climax was predictable and it is too long, they dragged it for no reason to add emotional drama which you don’t feel at all while watching, you just want the movie to end.There are too many songs in the movie and although they have shot at so many locations, I wish there could have been better cinematography to show more of these gorgeous cities.

the beginning of the movie is quite funny, their banter and interactions are hilarious, but 20 minutes into the movie and you stop understanding whats going on, why is Sejal acting a certain way, everything in the movie stops making sense.The story of the movie is pretty stupid, Sejal and Harry’s romance seems forced, why could it not have been about friendship? why could they have not been friends instead? or the movie could have been better understood by me if there was a younger actor playing Harry. I just do not see SRK as a romantic actor anymore, it’s really not worth watching.

It’s

Phillauri – Movie

My rating – 8.5/10.

A good movie after so long.I really liked the concept of the film, its different and hilarious.Its a funny movie.The music and background score is good, not cringeworthy at all. Sahiba is a really good song.The poems esp the Mohabbat one leaves the theater with you.

Anshai Lal has directed the movie really well. Suraj Sharma plays Kanan, he is the only thing bad about this movie. He cannot act, his acting and performance are annoying.

Mehreen pirzada plays anu. She is pretty.Suraj and mehreen have no chemistry.

Anushka Sharma plays shashi.She shines through this movie just like her ghost.her performance is great, and she looks gorgeous, innocent and dignified. Diljit Dosanjh plays Phillauri.Diljit is handsome and acts wow.His and Anushka’s scenes are dreamy, their chemistry sizzling.Manav Vij’s performance is commendable as the brother.The supporting cast of biji, parents, friends holds well.

The execution of the movie could have been better.Their story is conveyed, some scenes, we understand what they are trying to portray but not every scene is enjoyable unless it has anushka or diljit.The casting should have been better, suraj sharma is what makes me dislike this movie.

It is fun to watch a past and present reality together. Everything has been conveyed well.It is a beautiful movie, totally worth watching. The new comers do not leave an impression but anushka and diljit are amazing. Anushka’s production house truly makes good worthwhile movies.
