Imtiaz Ali taps into something really special that brings out the actors' intensity and creates some memorable moments
Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma‘s Jab Harry Met Sejal has hit the screens and we have to say we can’t keep calm.
Our reviewer – Tushar P Joshi went for the first day, first show of Jab Harry Met Sejal and the first half has completely blown him away.
So much so that it’s getting difficult for him to decide what’s hotter – Shah Rukh Khan’s charisma or his chemistry with Anushka Sharma?
Here’s what Tushar has to say during the interval, “Jab Harry Met Sejal is the Shah Rukh Khan film fans have been waiting for years.
It is SRK’s return to the true form in a long time. When I say form, I mean the romantic form and characters we have been missing from the actor.
Imtiaz Ali not only taps into Shah Rukh’s potential of bringing alive hardcore romance on screen but he also lets the actor do his own thing. And boy does he go for the kill!
The first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal has tons of moments that will remind of Shah Rukh’s charisma, that unending gaze and stare, the dimples and that brooding look he gives when he wants to give you those goosebumps.
A lot of these scenes leave an impact because of his insane chemistry with Anushka Sharma, who is unbelievably good in the film.
Shah Rukh plays Harry, a cocky, attractive tour guide who admits that his sex appeal and flirtatious way with girls hold no limits.
Anushka plays Sejal, a Gujarati girl, who loses her engagement ring during an European tour she took with Harry’s company.
What follows is these two characters finding out things about each other, getting to know each other better, a lot of dialogues, chat and banter that Imtiaz builds so beautifully.
The first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal is light, fun and has some really engaging scenes.
The highlight, of course, is the crazy chemistry between these two actors.
We have seen them on screen in the past too, but this time around Imtiaz taps into something really special that brings out their intensity and creates some memorable moments.
Shah Rukh is looking at his best, perhaps the best he’s looked in a really long time and he’s using his charm and natural swag in full throttle.
The pace is also good and there are multiple scenes in the first half that will make you invest in these characters, wondering what the journey ahead will be like.
Totally impressed with the first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal and now anticipating the second half.”
