One of the most anticipated movies of 2017 was Jab Harry Met Sejal. The movie buzz was so huge that the promotional events were easy to reach out to people in advance. However, the drama and the magic of Imtiaz's touch were not on par with this movie and it seems like the same rom-com drama prolonging no new addition to its sector.
The movie that has Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead seems to get brushed away by the audiences in the theatres. One of the reasons that made audiences not go with director’s vision is the plot of the movie where A 50-year-old man romancing a woman half his age. The movie shows a girl who lost her ring asked for help from a complete stranger in an unknown country that is so over the line and not real.
The movie reflects a lack of answerability by the director and the script writer who does not give two boos about professional critics calling them out for reusing the same female character in every single film. Jab Harry Met Sejal is a shadow contrast to its original Hollywood movie ‘When Harry met Sally’. The movie has a plot that is so unreal and needs more balance of dialogs and actually a line of story.
The film, which on the whole uses cliches, is a symbol for the industry it is a product of. Imtiaz who is one of the finest movie directors of our nation has not fully advanced the movie plot to go wow for. It seems that the mega stars are not enough to run a movie, no matter what, the plot and story play a major role to attract audiences.
Repeating the same plot and odd combinations of stars on the screen will not create excitement to earn the profit. We think Jab Harry Met Sejal should have been made better with more story than unnecessary drama.
