Happy Jab Harry Met Sejal day! Shahrukh may not have a Diwali release this year, but that just means we get to keep up the celebration for his last film. I’ll be reposting some of my reviews, and the index of coverage, and of course the tweetalong starts at 2pm.
You ready for new discussion questions???? They aren’t that deep, just fun little things for us:
- List the songs in order of most favorite to least favorite
For me, “Radha” by a mile is my most favorite. Just so complex and perfectly filmed and perfectly lyriced (if that’s a word). After that, hmmm. I think “Butterfly”. And then “Yaadon Main”. Then “Raula”. Then “Safar” and then “Ghar”. And then “Beech Beech Mein”. So, I guess I really love the ones with Anushka and Shahrukh together more than the ones with him alone, and I don’t much like Disco.
2. What is your favorite scene for Anushka’s character?
I think the scene the morning after “Yaadon Mein” when she has efficiently taken charge of everything and is so happy and proud of herself.
3. What is your favorite scene for Shahrukh’s character?
I think the scene in the coffee shop with Klara. It’s his reactions to what the women are saying which really make it work.
4. What is your favorite scene between Shahrukh and Anushka?
Hmm. That’s tricky. They are all so good. Maybe their first real scene together? In the restaurant when she is happily describing her engagement and he is rolling his eyes.
