Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in a still from 'Jab Harry Met Sejal'
Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma's 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', directed by Imtiaz Ali, has received negative reviews from critics and audience alike.
The Bollywood romcom has drawn flak from reviewers who have called the film mushy and churned out from the same oven having typical 'SRK romance' and bereft of any storyline.
The two-hour-twentyfour-minute film revolves around the two characters and how Sejal (Anushka Sharma) bumps into tour-guide Harry (Shah Rukh Khan) and together they set off visiting the exact same spots that she and her family visited -- in the hope of finding her lost engagement ring.
Some Twitter users wished Harry hadn't met Sejal at all!
Here are some reactions of people who aren't pleased with the film:
People are saying that first half is good but second half is very bad, can't say if Jab Harry met Sejal or SRK's career.— EngiNerd. (@mainbhiengineer) August 5, 2017

There is no other way to say this. #JabHarrryMetSejal is a huge huge disappointment. Had such high hopes from it!— Lekha Menon (@LekhaMenon1) August 3, 2017
Disappointed with the screenplay so far. Srk's presence is not used that well. #JabHarryMetSejal— Shreya âÂÂ¤ï¸ÂÂ Ranbir (@Shreyabajaj16) August 4, 2017
#JabHarrymetSejal. I am a diehard SRKian but have to admit SRK need to be selective in Scripts. Disappointing stuff. 1.5*/5. Imtiaz sucks— Madridista Sameer (@saymeair) August 4, 2017

Some Twitter users, however, loved 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' and this is what they had to say:
