Harry (Shahrukh Khan) and Anushka (Sejal) played their role perfectly and the whole film was entertaining.

"Jab Harry Met Sejal" is shot in the attractive locations of Prague, Berlin, Holland, Amsterdam. Earlier both worked together in Yash Chopra's Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

After a lot of buzz and extensive promotion strategies, Shah Rukh Khan And Anushka Sharma starrer "Jab Harry Met Sejal" finally opened at the box office this Friday.

In India, the film is released in 3500+ screens, and considering the number of release centers, "Jab Harry Met Sejal" will make its way to the elite 100 Crore club in its opening weekend itself.

If you are content to simply bask in the company of a middle-aged Shah Rukh Khan and half-his-age Anushka Sharma, the two attractive leads who star as Harinder Singh Nehra aka Harry, a Punjabi, and Sejal Jhaveri, a Gujarati, then this romance is for you.

Anushka Sharma's inconsistent Gujarati accent is slightly irritating, but her refreshing presence and natural performance works for the film. It is produced by SRK's wife Gauri Khan under the banner of Red Chillies entertainment.

Shah Rukh and Anushka will be seen helping Chakor (Meera Deosthale) and Sooraj understand how love is a precious feeling and they should not let go of each other. The comradery between Harry and Sejal is fun and adventurous with some of the most attractive locations in the world.

When the trailers were out, it seemed a no-plot film and turns out it is exactly what was showed initially.

Jab Harry Met Sejal is expected to witness a substantial growth in the evening shows today. We are aware of the negative reviews the film has been getting, but Jab Harry Met Sejal is not everyone's cup of tea, it is bound to get troublesome reactions. However, as we all know, the film targeted the urban audience, so in the urban centres and multiplexes, the occupancy has been 70 per cent plus. They seem more like a beautification trope for the film's weak story.

What makes this story mighty interesting, however, is the second layer to the otherwise black and white story.

Harry has had his share of bad relationships and is literally hiding away from his past while Sejal, who on the pretext of searching for her lost ring, ends up trying to gawkily seduce the guide into falling for her. Jab Hary Met Sejal overseas earnings mere from the selling of distribution rights comes to 40 crore rupees.
