Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
Yash Chopra's final film, "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" ("Till My Last Breath"), raises the stakes on Bollywood romance to potentially explosive levels. The superstar Shah Rukh Khan plays Samar, an expert bomb defuser who hides behind sunglasses and nerves of steel in India, where he has fled after Meera (Katrina Kaif) breaks his heart in London.
How his past romance all went down is explained through a prolonged flashback involving amnesia, pacts with God, a hit and run, and a percussive warehouse-party dance number. Along the way there are sideline gigs as a busker, a fishmonger and a waiter. Once the film catches us up, a fresh complication arises when a sassy young intern from a TV show, Akira (Anushka Sharma), gets hooked on Samar while shooting a documentary on his work.
A love triangle develops that is as intricate and death-defying as a prisoner's dilemma. Even though the film drags, the magic of Bollywood is that this story's muddle of twists only clarifies the urgency behind the undying desires of all concerned parties. And beyond showing the requisite London landmarks, Mr. Chopra pans over earth and heavens in typically spectacular shots of Samar in Kashmir as he goes about his dangerous business. (Mr. Chopra, a Bollywood giant, died in October at 80.)
Mr. Khan charms and swaggers about, holding onto marquee status even in a post-amnesia hospital-bed scene that has him wearing an absurd nipple-tight shirt. Would that his co-star Ms. Kaif, who has great fun with a "Rent"-dress-code warehouse dance, didn't have, at key moments, the expressiveness of pudding.
But when Akira flirts with Samar while he defuses a bomb on a bridge ' from which they hang in harnesses ' "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" reaches some new acme of oblivious romantic folly.
