Jab Harry Met Sejal Story

So, she requests Harry to join her to search the ring. Much against his will, Harry get stuck with her as she won’t leave the city unless she finds it.
Imtiaz gives a Sufi angle to the movie but due to the complicated contemporary love, the audience loses their connection with the characters. The plot is lost somewhere and the audience feels disappointing.
Shah Rukh Khan as expected has proved that he is the real King of Romance. In every frame he appears, he just mesmerizes you. Anushka too delivered a brilliant knock. Pritam does a phenomenal job in the music department and gives wings to the poetic lines by Irshad Kamil.
