We got a glimpse of Jab Harry Met Sejal in the mini trails, but now's the time to witness the face off between Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in a musical way. BollywoodLife had the opportunity to catch this song ahead of the rest so we knew already that it's Punjabi versus Gujarati. Shah Rukh aka Harry tells Sejal (Anushka Sharma) a small story in the very beginning of this song. He reveals why Punjabi's sing so loudly. The reason according to Harry is because most Punjabi people ride a tractor and while doing so if they sing, they're unable to hear themselves. Harry then breaks into a song in full Bollywood style. Sejal is taken by surprise, but not to be left behind she manages to surprise Harry at the end of this number. So much that despite being the "hot" types Harry gets a very "sisterly" vibe from Sejal.
Anushka and Shah Rukh both look pretty good individually and together. Theirs is an easy chemistry and rapport that looks natural. The locales are shot beautifully and will make you want to go on a romantic vacay right away. The song manages to stay with you even after it's over. There's also a scene where we see SRK lift his T up and challenges Anushka to do the same, we like how she coolly does so and proves a point. Imtiaz saves the best for last, when you're left wondering how's a Gujarati girl with such heavy Gujju accent
An Imtiaz Ali fan would have seen similar locales, shots before in his films with Ranbir Kapoor. The song has a very strong Tamasha hangover. You might end up feeling like you are seeing an SRK and Anushka version of Ranbir-Deepika Padukone's Matargashti track.
