Shah Rukh Khan in Jab Harry Met Sejal

Shah Rukh Khan in Jab Harry Met Sejal

Shah Rukh Khan as expected has proved that he is the real King of Romance. Shah Rukh's Harry, with his unabashed cheesiness and "cheapness", plays his part with an arrogant aplomb that seems borrowed from his superstar persona of Aryan Khanna in Maneesh Sharma's "Fan". "This self indulgence comes with a shocker in the character of Sejal (Anushka Sharma) which initially shows traits of a good girl from a good family in her innocence and curiosity starts exploring the dark side of life (SOCHA NA THA, ROCKSTAR) but her unusual and sudden flirting with Harry by asking him whether she is that 'layak" (means physically attractive enough) like those firangs who Harry dates with is unconvincing.

The film starts with Harry, a self-confessed womanizer, trying to help a "neat and clean" Sejal in finding her engagement ring. Disappointed, dejected and defiant, she opts out of the group to search her ring. She refuses to board the flight back to India from Amsterdam till she gets her ring back.

Director Imtiaz Ali is known for his romances and his focus on love and the various nuances of a couple experiencing love. We have seen them in two films earlier but this is by far their best. The film has turned out to be a little less satisfactory than his previous works. It is also being said Shah Rukh Khan asked Imtiaz not to keep the story too dark but light hearted. The Butterfly Song comes at the very end, so you can guess what happened. This old style of romance has been done to death.

Amod Mehra told the tabloid that since there have not been too many good films in the recent past, the audience is not shying away from splashing money for this much-awaited film.

' Actor Siddharth Malhotra also wished Shahrukh all the best for the film.

Microsoft launches Surface Plus upgrade plan
For an extra $US8.25 per device per month, Surface Plus business buyers will also get the Office 365 suite. If businesses choose the 24-month term, they can upgrade their devices after 12 months.

Imtiaz Ali, the maverick film maker famous for his different, non-conformist style of storytelling within the framework of commercial mainstream Hindi cinema, is ready with his latest offering on Box Office. This aspect has outstandingly made the film overrated. The movie is set to become the third biggest opener for Shah Rukh Khan after Happy New Year and Chennai Express.

But did Jab Harry Met Sejal have any surprises - good, bad or ugly in store for us? Here is a man who will do what he wants, say what he wishes and apply any logic no matter how politically indecorous, to prove his point. Some of the audience could not even get tickets.

Just imagine if Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone met again in an exotic land and chose to play....ummm... a cranky closet-misogynist tourist guide and a fast-taking vacuous but charming Gujarati tourist.

Imtiaz Ali has done it again.
