The highly anticipated film Jab Harry Met Sejal is all set to release this Friday. From its title to trailer, fans have been talking and discussing about the film endlessly and it is evident from its grand buzz on social media.
Let’s look at the positives and negatives of Jab Harry Met Sejal before coming to its box office predictions:
Shah Rukh Khan
SRK is undoubtedly one of the biggest names of Bollywood so the crowd is naturally going to be massive for his film. His films attract enormous footfalls, especially in first 3 days. So, JHMS can take a strong opening due to the brand that is Shah Rukh Khan. His previous film Raees, despite being clashed with Kaabil, managed to collect 20 crore so you get the idea about his box office dominance.
Moreover, Shah Rukh is a king of romance and with JHMS, he is bringing back his signature charm back.
The romantic pair of SRK-Anushka is one of the most popular ones in recent times. Audience has loved their on screen pairing be it Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi or Jab Tak Hai Jaan. So, that is another plus for the film.
The buzz for Jab Harry Met Sejal is incredible, thanks to its songs and trailer. Although its mini trailers failed to create the buzz, its music pretty much made up for it.
Imtiaz Ali is a highly respected director and he has a credible reputation so film community will trust him with his story. Also, he directing Shah Rukh is a highlight of the project.
Jab Harry Met Sejal is a romantic flick but it is not necessarily a film for mass population. Its story has an upbeat feel, appealing for metro cities. The multiplex audience will be showing a big crowd for it but small towns and single screen theaters might not turn up in big numbers for it.
In a nutshell, Jab Harry Met Sejal has more merits than drawbacks. It can take the opening of around 17-19 crore. However, it still needs extremely good reviews so that there is a strong sustenance over the weekend and weekdays as after 1 week, another big releases Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will be grabbing the screens.
