Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma's Jab Harry Met Sejal is all set to hit the screens across the globe on August 4. Fans have been going gaga about the film ever since the makers launched its poster with utmost glory. Although, the short teasers or the 'mini trails' were not that impressive but, the trailer proved that this film is going to be something different from all those romantic flicks that Bollywood thrives on. The trailer of the film actually gives a breath of freshness giving the king of romance a degree of cool quotient.
Initially, the film faced a lot of criticism because of the title 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', which is similar to the American romantic comedy named 'Harry Met Sally'. But, then it got all sorted and now it's only three day left to witness the magic of Imtiaz Ali clubbed with the romance of Shah Rukh Khan. So, before you step into the hall to enjoy Imtiaz Ali's new film, here are the 5 things that you can expect from Jab Harry Met Sejal.
A pure love story
The trailer introduces the two lead characters named Harry and Sejal to the audience and for the first time in his 25-year-long career, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen playing a Sardar, while Anushka dons a Gujarati avatar gracefully. The tagline of the film says, "What you seek is seeking you" and it goes without saying that this line binds the lead characters together.
Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has always been famous for his quintessential lover boy image that comes as the legendary Raj and/or Rahul, spreading his arms, in most of his films. But, in Jab Harry Met Sejal, the audience will get to see the other side of the actor. Shah Rukh a.k.a Harry, a tour guide in the film describes himself, as a 'cheap' human being and a womaniser.
When it comes to the actress, Anushka Sharma, who made her debut with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, is all set to portray the character of a geeky, newly-engaged Gujarati girl. Anushka is generally known for her 'bindaas' characters but in this film she will be seen showcasing some different emotions. Both Harry and Sejal have a layer of shades in their characters that would surely create curiousness among the audience to know more about the two.
Music is one of the best things that you can expect from an Imtiaz Ali film. And, this film is not an exception. Reports said that 'Radha', 'Butterfly', 'Beech beech mein', 'Safar', 'Hawayein' all of these songs have topped the music charts within weeks of its release. Apart from the soulful scores, the fun and peppy music breathes life into the film.
The magic of Imtiaz Ali
When it comes to making a romantic film, Imtiaz Ali is a class apart. His films are always realistic and he never focuses on fantasy-romance. One can always relate to Imtiaz Ali's films as the director always keeps his story real. After films like Rockstar, Tamasha or Highway, Jab Harry Met Sejal is expected to bring the ace director back to the light-hearted genre with this upcoming family entertainer. The trailer has already displayed a sea of emotions and some powerful dialogues that evokes humour with dark undertone.
The sizzling chemistry between Shah Rukh and Anushka
Shah Rukh and Anushka's on-screen chemistry has always been appreciated be it Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi or Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The duo is back on screen with Jab Harry Met Sejal. After the trailer, one can easily vouch for the sizzling chemistry between Anushka and Shah Rukh and hopefully it will not fail to meet up the expectations of the audience.
And, if these things are not enticing enough for guys then the lush locales of the film would surely excite you. Be it the picturesque location of Prague, Amsterdam and Budapest or the rustic beauty of Punjab, Imtiaz Ali has unfolded the scenic beauty brilliantly through the lens.
