Is "Jab Harry Met Sejal" The Worst Movie Title In Movie History?

WTF IMTIAZ. WTF SHAH RUKH. WTF BOLLYWOOD.

Posted on

Hello, friends. I am a Bollywood buff. This is usually an incredibly rewarding trait. It gives me joy and meaning.

Yash Raj Films

Like every Bollywood fan, I've waited for Imtiaz Ali's next (which was untitled for EONS) with the excitement of a child. It involved three great talents in the same movie — Anushka Sharma, Shah Rukh Khan, and Imtiaz Ali himself.

Even Salman Khan was hyped.

And it was (or so we were told) up to us to decide the title. The movie was rumoured to be named either Rehnuma, Raula, or The Ring.

Well. Yesterday, Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma finally revealed the title on Instagram.

And... I mean...

It's obviously a mash-up of two iconic romcom titles...

And at least *one* person is into that...

I just want to state that JAB HARRY MET SEJAL is a fucking great title. Self-referential + Tribute

But most fans are BAFFLED.

And, even pre-release, the movie has been nominated for this award.

Is there a Filmfare Award for Worst Movie Title? Imtiaz Ali stakes his claim. #JabHarryMetSejal

Shah Rukh, I love you with every bone in my body. But, Ranbir Kapoor would not want ANY CREDIT FOR THIS UNORIGINAL CLUSTERFUCK.

So help settle this, fam.
