Till My Last Breath (Jab tak Hai Jaan): Film Review

12:26 PM PST 11/14/2012 by Lisa Tsering
Jab Tak Hai Jaan Still - H 2012

The Bottom Line

Romance king Yash Chopra delivers a swoon-worthy Bollywood love story.



Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Anupam Kher


Yash Chopra

Director-producer Yash Chopra's film -- his final project before he died -- delivers not only the romance and human touch, but also reflects a modern sensibility.

EMERYVILLE, Calif. — The trailer for Yash Chopra's three-hour romantic extravaganza manages to pack in half a dozen explosions, a passionate scene in a London phone booth and a dance duet amid soaring fountains. So it's tempting to assume that India's most eagerly awaited film of the year, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, will be silly and overblown.

But the film, the 80-year-old director-producer's final project before he died Oct. 21, hits the right notes and delivers not only the romance and human touch that has made Chopra a brand name, but also reflects a modern sensibility: these are characters who have sex before marriage, break their vows to God, and set their own life paths.

The drawing power of Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma (who costarred with Khan in the charming Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi), combined with a wide Diwali holiday release, will ensure large, appreciative audiences despite competition from actor-producer Ajay Devgn's broad, crowd-pleasing comedy Son of Sardaar. Devgn unsuccessfully sued Chopra to try to change Jab Tak Hai Jaan's clashing release date, but his concern seems unnecessary as crowds are bound to discover Sardaar through positive word-of-mouth — there's room at the multiplex for everybody.

At 175 minutes, Jab Tak has a story line too lengthy to recap in detail, though it opens with a scene straight out of The Hurt Locker — Indian army explosives expert Samar Anand (Khan), his country's best bomb defuser, refuses to wear a protective suit and displays an almost pathological lack of fear as he disarms an IED to save his squadron.

Samar seems to be daring God to kill him, and the reason why is revealed in a flashback that takes up the first third of the film: as a struggling Indian immigrant living in London, Samar fell in love with Meera (Kaif), who reciprocated his passion but felt conflicted because of her own devotion to God — whom a jealous Samar scornfully calls "Mr. Jesus."

Later, working for the Indian army while nursing a broken heart, Samar meets vibrant young journalist Akira (Sharma), who inspires him to be happy — until Samar is felled by that most timeworn of Bollywood film conventions, an accident followed by a case of retrograde amnesia.

Yes, the film has its silly aspects, but audiences willing to suspend disbelief (why does military man Samar have sexily coiffed and moussed hair, even while camping out on a Ladakhi mountaintop; and aren't those Tibetan Buddhist monks put off by the scantily clad Sharma shaking her behind?) will find much to love.

Chopra, an icon credited with creating many of the most distinctive elements of the Bollywood formula over his 40-film producing-directing career, has collaborated with Khan on more than half a dozen projects. Here, too, Chopra has brought in Oscar winner A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire) for some energetic songs, thrillingly choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant with suprising eroticism.

Sharma is, as always, warm and expressive; while Kaif, though not an acting heavyweight, nevertheless delivers a charismatic and physical performance, especially in a riveting modern dance number set only to pounding drums. Khan is the star folks came to see: his performance, which veers between forced ebullience and convincing vulnerability, is one of the strongest of his career.

Supporting performances are also striking, including Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh and Anupam Kher; and Chopra makes good use of gorgeous locations in Ladakh and London.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is no Hurt Locker — it's a flat-out masala film with over-the-top emotions and situations. But its credit list includes both an explosives expert and a choreographer. Beat that, Kathryn Bigelow.

So is it Yash Chopra's movie or SRK's? At the age of 28, he fights the wrinkles with unusual elan but it is his 38-year-old persona of a Major in the Indian Army that takes your breath away. As a bomb diffuser in J&K, SRK shines as never before in his fatigue, his rugged beard, his hardened mannerisms and his outrageously brave courting of death. Yes, in the hands of Yash Chopra, he is a man that can never die, a romantic that brings back the heartbeat that tugs, the star that stamps his presence all over you. And thankfully for the movie, much of it pans out on this rakishly handsome Major who towers over your emotions as Discovery documentary film-maker Anushka Sharma tells you time and again.



Speaking about Shah Rukh's performance is nothing short of belittling the consummate actor's skills. If as Raj Malhotra he had managed to woo half the population of the country; as Samar Anand, this man can make many more smitten by him. The slight stutter, the little hint of a tear in the eyes, the arms-outstretched pose ' Khan knows how to make his ladies fall for him ' be it that they are almost half his age!


Katrina looks ethereally beautiful and Khan delivers one of the most incandescent performances as he plays a macho army man and a guitar-wielding lover with equal ease and aplomb. 


Shah Rukh imbues the part of solider Samar with a great deal of heart. Never since Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Devdas" has he expressed the pain of lost love so eloquently


But Shah Rukh Khan, Yash Chopra's go-to man over the last decade-and-a-half, makes Samar his own, lending the carefree lover an innate charm and the brooding loner an impenetrable intensity. He walks into our hearts as the ever-smiling street musician and marks a place in it as the man betrayed by life.


Shah Rukh Khan excels in his role as a lover boy in the first half of the movie and as an army officer in the latter part of the movie.


Mr. Khan is dashing as the lead, delivering a role that is worthy of award consideration. 


Khan is the star folks came to see: his performance, which veers between forced ebullience and convincing vulnerability, is one of the strongest of his career.


At 47, Shah Rukh, still strikes the right notes as the typical romantic hero.


Shah Rukh Khan without doubt, is one of the best ever romantic heroes that Indian cinema has seen. But now his age is showing, and while he still plays the different shades of his role well enough and with full conviction, he obviously comes off better in the 2012 portions. He is comparatively quite restrained and emotes particularly well with his eyes and is able to take you with the film to some extent.

  • Xclusiv: 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' leads by a huge margin in Overseas
