1.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Anita Iyer Khaleej Times

‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ is shot in the beautiful locations of Prague, Berlin, Holland, Amsterdam. So, while you are lost wondering where the movie is heading, the scenic beauty keeps you hooked. The movie goes through its ebb and flow, and all you can do is enjoy the good bits, till they last. So, if you are a fan of the leading actors or have a Sufi heart, go watch this movie.

 

2.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Manjusha Radhakrishna on Gulf News

However, the cinematography that highlights the beauty of a handful European countries is pleasing to watch. But we wish that all that energy and love was devoted to developing a cracking love story. Watch this film if you are strictly a Shah Rukh Khan or Anushka Sharma fan. Others will hesitate to put a ring on this romantic comedy.

3) Rating: 2/5. Review by Manju Ramanan’s on Masala.com

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a film you want to like but when you see the ‘Babe becoming Babita’ formula repeated yet again, you wonder why a filmmaker, known for his progressive, unusual films succumbs to clichés like this one.  I go back to the sublime Rockstar that ended with a Sufi quote – ‘Beyond good and bad, there is a field, I will meet you there’. This film espouses the beautiful thought of  ‘Home is a Person’ . Wish the script went beyond these one-liners and took us on a unique journey with a Geet or a Jordan instead of this been-there-done-that European tour. 

 

4.) Rating: 3/5. Review Meena Iyer on Times Of India

The plot is wafer-thin and it’s been done to death by none other than Imtiaz Ali in each of his earlier films—be it Jab We Met, Cocktail and Tamasha. It’s the routine girl is engaged elsewhere story but she discovers half-way through that her soulmate is someone other. In this case, Sejal is engaged to Rupen but actually ends up falling for Harry. Let’s give the devil his due, Imtiaz’s films do coax and cajole you to take a journey inwards instead of just doing the peripheral one. But in this film, the actual soul-searching bits between the leads don’t quite add up. What makes this film watchable though is the presence of Shah Rukh and Anushka both of who are in top-form in their Punjabi and Gujarati impersonations. In fact, SRK is like old wine, the more he matures, the better he romances. Boy, when he seals it with a kiss, he’s irresistible!

#JabHarryMetSejal: Unimpressive 👎👎👎
Good performances… Stunning locales… Bland and boring screenplay… Too many songs

 

 

6.) Rating: 1/5. Review by Ananya Bhattacharya on India Today

It wouldn’t have made any difference to Bollywood if Jab Harry Met Sejal wasn’t made. Shah Rukh, Anushka, Imtiaz – all have flop films and bad choices in their filmographies, but Jab Harry Met Sejal beats all of them together and by a huge margin. Maybe Harry should have stuck to his Safar-ka-hi-tha-main-safar-ka-raha stance. Meeting Sejal was not the best thing to have happened to the rest of us. Serendipity? ROFL.

7.) Rating: 1/5. Review on First Post

Jab Harry Met Sejal is occasionally funny, but not half as funny or cute or ruminative as it clearly thinks it is. Hats off to Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma for managing to raise the Centigrades in this  otherwise pakau disaster.

8.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Sukanya Verma on Rediff 

Jab Harry Met Sejal’s titular characters wander aimlessly from one place to another from inside a bubble, holding on to a dream that’s playful yet unreal, surprising but hollow.  And so it’s only befitting when Sejal begs him in her best fangirl face to train her fiancé in the art of affection — ‘Meri life ban jayegi.’ I only wish it’s for a better love story.

9.) Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express

Finally, it comes down to counting the momentary pleasures of this disappointing film: a bit of the sparring between Harry and Sejal, the breathless awareness that the other exists, and the realization that without the other, it’s simply not worth it.

10.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Saibal Chatterjee  on NDTV Movies

Jab Harry Met Sejal is cinema’s equivalent of a shiny bauble that glitters wholly in vain. Watch it only if you fancy a vicarious romp through Europe with a megastar trying hard to get going.
