Shahrukh Khan's Jab Harry Met Sejal will do business of more than 100 crores.
Jab Harry Met Sejal had done business of more than 60 crores in 4 days.
Shahrukh Khan’s film Jab Harry Met Sejal had done business of more than 60 crores in 4 days. The film will do business of more than 100 crores. But it will not be a blockbuster. Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma had done well in the romantic roles. But the direction of Imitiaz Ali had fallen short. He could not match upto the expectations of people who watched his previous film Jab We Met. Shahrukh Khan still retained his romantic looks after being in the industry for more than 25 years. But he has not left his comfort zone which was romance. While Salman Khan in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Tubelight had shown image breaking characters, Amir Khan had experimented in films like Dangal, Shahrukh Khan should re-invent himself to do challenging roles. Anushka did a great job.
Imtiaz Ali had shot the film in brilliant countries like Hungary, Holland, Austria, but could not show romantic landscapes. The music of Pritam was average. Only the song “banu mai teri radha” sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Shahid Mallya was melodious.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is a 2017 Indian romantic comedy film written and directed by Imtiaz Ali. It features Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles, their third collaboration after Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) and Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). Pre-production of the film begun in April 2015 and principal photography commenced in August 2016 in Prague, Amsterdam, Vienna, Lisbon and Budapest.
The film starts with Harinder "Harry" Singh Nehra (Shah Rukh Khan) working as a tourist guide. Harry is a cheap womanizer but a friendly and helpful guide.
After dropping a Gujarati family to the airport, Harry comes across Sejal Zaveri (Anushka Sharma), a member of the same Gujarati family, who has lost her engagement ring. Harry agrees to help her find her ring. Harry later tells Sejal that he had left his home in Nur Mahal village and came to Canada to become a singer, which did not work out.
Both Harry and Sejal travel to places where Harry had initially taken the family, in search of the ring. During this, Harry falls in love with Sejal but does not reveal it to her as she's engaged to someone else. They soon learn that a criminal named 'Gas' has stolen the ring. They go to Gas to retrieve the ring but Harry gets thrashed by Gas' men. Later, while looking for antiseptics in her bag for Harry, Sejal finds the ring and realizes that the ring was in her bag all along. However, she keeps this to herself.
The next day, they fly to Frankfurt for the wedding of Mayank, Harry's friend. After the wedding, Harry and Sejal get into an argument and Sejal decides to leave for India.
At the airport, Sejal shows Harry the ring and tells him that it was in her bag all along. Harry asks her to take care and bids her goodbye.
Sejal returns to India and Harry returns to work. Harry begins to miss Sejal and gets depressed. On Mayank's insistence, Harry flies for Mumbai to go to Sejal's wedding. On reaching the venue, Harry learns that Sejal's marriage was called off and finds Sejal sitting outside. They eventually share their feelings for each other, and go to Harry's village, Nur Mahal, where Harry reunites with his family and marries Sejal.
