Mumbai: When Shah Rukh Khan gets back to doing romances, it's often cause for celebration to his immense fan-following. And when the director guiding him is Imtiaz Ali, the celebration is bound to grow manifold.
'Jab Hary Met Sejal' had caused a lot of justified apprehension among fans and others once the title had been released, after a painfully and near unnecessarily long scrutiny, but the teasers and music by Pritam had kept them hooked.
The trailer gives a fair idea as to what is to be expected from the film. Sejal (Anushka Sharma) loses her engagement ring, and Harry (Shah Rukh Khan), a somewhat lost and slightly old tour guide must help her retrieve it post a Euro-trotting session full of soul-searching and fresh romances.
Been there done that for all parties involved? Probably. But there still exists a certain freshness to the trailer which is what Imtiaz Ali is attempting to achieve with his casting choice and putting the most celebrated cinematic romanticist in his den and playing around him.
Will it work? One must wait until August 04 to know.
