Jab Harry Met Sejal – Just Like That


 

Director – Imtiaz Ali

Writer – Imtiaz Ali

Players – Shah Rukh Khan , Anushka Sharma , Chandan Roy Sanyal

 

There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who admire Shah Rukh Khan and the zombies. Oh, you are hurt… As if I care…

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a coming of age romance and one of the most honest performances by the lead cast. Shah Rukh Khan once again weaves magic on the 70 mm and Anushka Sharma proves that she is definitely one of the best leading ladies of the Hindi Film Industry.

Storyline

Fuck you 😀 I won’t tell you. It is the Bollywood’s answer to The Lord of the Rings without Sam, Frodo and Sauron. Imtiaz Ali delivers one of the uninteresting plot lines ever.

Songs

Why Imtiaz Ali Why? You could have paid decent script writers with all the amount you invested in making such lame songs. Ok Ok, they have been forced upon the script and mostly upon the audience. Well except, Beech Beech Mein..Because the film glowed only beech beech mein.

 Acting & Characterisation

Shah Rukh Khan is Badshah of Romance. He is the God. This film (actually all the films ) belongs to him. You will just love him for his effortless acting skills. Forget Raj, delete Rahul from your memory, Harry is real and hard-hitting. Are you sure SRK that you are not Punjabi? The accent, the mannerism and dialogue delivery- well you are just Chak de Patthey. Most of the men are like Harry, they like to play it rough and sleep with any one but lonely at heart. Harry is the next-door boy who is confused and perplexed with life. That is why Imitiaz Ali cannot be ignored, as he comes up with some of the most honest characters in Hindi Cinema.

shah-rukh-khan-anushka_640x480_71497960944Anushka Sharma …you are savage. I am fortunate enough to rub shoulder with few Gujju Baa, Bahoo and Ben..and you have provided one of the most honest portrayals of a Gujarati Woman. They are rich, they show-off a lot but they are very good and brave at heart…just like you Sejal. Chandan  Roy Sanyal ‘s portrayal as a Bangladeshi Immigrant is funny and gory at the same time. Sadly you have been over-looked by Bollywood directors.

I couldn’t see any other people on the screen. Jab Harry Met Sejal gives you the honest meaning of Star Cast.

Other

Imtiaz Ali is an honest film maker ..but he has given an above average performance in this film. Cinematography and background score is commendable. The film has some of the finest European locations, excellent acting and commendable characterisation. Enjoy the heart to heart conversation between Punjab da Puttar Harry and Gujju Chokri Sejal.

Do not miss the scene where Sejal provides legal advice for Harry’s break-up with his hot European Blonde. The film has been dragged behind limit…again why Ali why?

This could have been a great romance. I repeat…could have been. By the way, Harry and Sejal will be in your heart for ever and ever. At least this is a practical love story not the Utopian out of the world Bollywood romantic flicks. Lastly,  SRK can romance a rock and make it go weak on his knees..toh fir audience kya cheez hain?

The BedTime Story


I estate myself  over here,in my chaotic bed,

The bedsheet seems to be murky one,

Once it was as pure as dove, now spluttered with blue, black and drops of red.

The incorruptibility seems to diminish, I lay upon my bed.

I repose over here in my ecstatic bed,

I partake over here.

This is the place where I fantasize,

My bed is the substratum of my occurrence,

The sole reason of my cerebral sustenance,

I sit here to chase a dream,

To analyze my moves,

To make an intellectual scheme,

I ,the Tangible Me occur in my bed.

This is the evidence of my enigmatic lust

The nightly desire reaches its fate over here,

I release my pearl white stream over there.

I sit in my bean, only to get back over there.

Ah,there lies my cot.

The soiled bolster and the worn out paillasse

They are the dream broods of my crib.

The bed carries the encumbrance of my existence.

But one day I will doom you,

But that day is too far,

Let’s not think about that big ruthless day,

Let us keep all those parting words at bay,

I am eager to pounce upon you,

Now seduce me to sommeil,oh my dear bed.

there lies the bed

there lies the bed

messy-office
