In what marks the third movie these two have done together, Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma team up again for another romantic comedy. I thought he’d moved on from playing the bachelor type after Dear Zindagi (2017). But it doesn’t look like it.
This film was originally named ‘The Ring’, but a last minute change happens. Now they’ve just ripped off When Harry Met Sally (1989), but least we know it won’t be a remake of this, as this was already done with Hum Tum (2004)
The story follows Sejal, on the search for her engagement ring around Europe. I really don’t know what this means, are they looking in shops, or on the ground because she lost it. We’ll have to find out.
Normally, we are given one trailer or teaser as a first preview. But instead, we’ve been give three short scenes.
Jab Harry Met Sejal releases in Australia on Friday the 4th of August, 2017.
See the mini trailers here:
The first scene is a weird conversation between Shah Rukh and Anushka, it seems like they have just met and Shah Rukh is going on about being a womanizer. This probably isn’t the best thing to be doing at this stage of a friendship. But this could be an attempt to make the character vulnerable for the viewer, saying that he doesn’t do what he is doing in life.
In the second trailer, we see that the two of them of living or travelling together. Anushka sets up a legal contract, of sorts, that prohibits anything sexual between each other. Of course this contract is going to be broken, have we not seen enough Indian movies to realise this. Also, Anushka’s Indian accent is very annoying, she better continue with her Hindi.
The final mini trailer is the most confusing of all. Something about an excuse followed by the two of them fighting. I think it’s an attempt to be funny, but it’s not working.
