Promotions for Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan's latest film Jab Harry Met Sejal took place on a grand scale to say the very least, however, the movie has failed to live up to all the hype generated. Written and directed by renowned director Imtiaz Ali Jab Harry Met Sejal saw SRK coming together for the third time with the bubbly Anushka Sharma, but even their chemistry could not save the movie.

Shot all across Europe in Prague, Amsterdam, Vienna, Lisbon and Budapest Jab Harry Met Sejal follows the story of a Gujarati girl Sejal (Anushka) who loses an important ring somewhere in Europe. The distraught Sejal hooks up with tour guide Harry (Shah Rukh) a typical Punjabi to help her find the ring.

Harry is shown to be arrogant, cheesy and a womaniser of sorts who uses any and every logic to prove his point. Sejal meanwhile is stubborn to a fault, despite having the patience to listen to Harry's endless rants. As the duo travel across Europe searching for Sejal's missing ring, and exchange racy conversations in exotic hotel rooms, their relationship blossoms into something more than co-detectives. The exotic locations serve no more purpose than being a glorified background for their antics.

With the famous reputation of all three of the stars, Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Imtiaz Ali (who is nothing short of a star himself), and the extensive promotions by means of mini-trailers, trailers and songs great expectations were made for the movie. Sadly the movie is a major disappointment with the insipid storyline.
