Pre-climax scene where Shahrukh and Katrina meet each other at the church again is fantastic

Sequence of events leading to the interval point are the highest points in the entire film

Once the film moves back to London, the pace only slows down further which makes the second half seem even longer

It does taken 1.5 hours to actually come to the point where the film's title is established and the conflict brought to the fore

The basic premise of JTHJ though a little too far fetched, does manage to keep you keep you engaged till the first half at least.

JTHJ turns out to be a one time affair that can be seen but without any expectations of a would-be classic. Rating: ***

Music only slows the film down though the grungy dance sequence in the first half is simply brilliant

Quantcast

Akira (Anushka Sharma) is a spunky student out for a project in Ladakh when she chances upon the story of Indian army's bomb disposal officer Samar (Shah Rukh Khan) and decides to make a documentary on him: The Man Who Cannot Die.

The story goes into flashback mode as we learn about Samar's lost love. A hard working chap in London, Samar worked a couple of jobs to make ends meet but always looked at the brighter side of things. A chance meeting with the rich heiress Meera (Katrina Kaif) changes both their lives. While Meera wants Punjabi singing lessons from him, Samar barters it for English lessons from her. Soon, the two fall in love, though Meera is betrothed to someone else.

On the other side of the timeline, Samar is now a bitter, reticent army officer who doesn't even bother with a bomb suit while defusing explosives. Akira finds herself increasingly drawn to Samar and even he thaws a bit.

But why did Samar and Meera part ways? Will they meet again? And does Akira have a chance with Samar?

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review (Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Stills)

Shah Rukh Khan And Katrina Kaif (Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Stills)

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review: Script Analysis

Devika Bhagat and Aditya Chopra's screenplay manages to strike some wonderful romantic chords. Aditya Chopra has penned some really lovely dialogues. His story though, is not as flawless. While the love, romance and amorous feeling are beautifully conveyed, you feel more frustration than pity at Meera's pacts with "Sir Jesus". Neetu Kapoor's love story may sound romantic, but it doesn't make much sense.

Coming to the climax. There's no way to put it kindly: it is just terribly long. Watching paint dry would make more interesting activity and you just want to get the heck over with it.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review: Star Performances

The best performance of Shah Rukh Khan in the movie is when he has joined the army. As lover boy Samar, he's just hamming it. Katrina Kaif does well as Meera but falls short in quite a few places. Anushka Sharma is darn good and your heart goes out for the kid Akira. Neetu and Rishi Kapoor are cute in their guest appearance. Anupam Kher has very little to do as Meera's father.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review: Direction, Music & Technical Aspects

It would be very difficult to not view this film without knowing that it's the last by Yash Chopra and letting it colour your view a bit. But the auteur mesmerizes you with two love stories and gets to root for each of them. If only he had managed to trim the climax, the film would have really stood out. But, alas.

The picturesque Ladakh, Kashmir and London attest Anil Mehta's cinematography. Rahman's music is very good, though not as memorable as some of his earlier songs might have been. The music in Shah Rukh's entry sequences are power-packed. Namrata Rao's editing is good.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review: The Last Word

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is worth a watch, and that's not just to pay your last respects to the legend Yash Chopra. It's a movie that puts the mushy, filmy craziness back

Jab Tak Hai Jaan
By  Taran Adarsh, 13 Nov 2012, 15:49 hrs IST

After a wait of eight long years, the master storyteller, the most admired and revered director of our times, Yash Chopra, returns with his new motion picture. Regrettably, JAB TAK HAI JAAN happens to be the last film of one of the greatest raconteurs of our times…

Yash Chopra is synonymous with love and romance and also spellbinding drama and heartrending emotions. Is synonymous with harmonious music and exquisite poetry and also snow-capped mountains and mustard fields. Is synonymous with waterfalls and rains and also Switzerland and Punjab. And so much more… JAB TAK HAI JAAN encompasses everything that one has come to expect from a Yash Chopra movie. This time, it's a brand new setting, but the journey remains the same as his previous love stories -- just as the lead man and his lady love sprint towards each other from opposite directions, to cuddle each other lovingly, you're told that the romantic pathway is crammed with thorns and spikes [a quick clarification: all this talk of JAB TAK HAI JAAN being a present-day avatar of Yash Chopra's DAAG is absolutely unfounded].

For the hardcore romantics, this one's a treat. But those who *don't* swear by love stories, I am certain, will be able to connect with this film, since the twists and twirls in the screenplay are sure to allure those yearning for something captivatingly distinctive.

JAB TAK HAI JAAN is a poignant voyage of three characters. Thankfully, not once does the script or the writers [Aditya Chopra and Devika Bhagat] permit any penetration of superfluous or redundant characters or sub-plots that would've only led to puzzlement. Every episode transpires for a persuasive reason. Besides, the drama is absolutely intriguing, with an undercurrent of emotions running through the length and breadth of the film, thereby adding intensity to this passionate love story.

JAB TAK HAI JAAN is not your typical love story. It has the old-world charm written all over it, with twists and turns plenty. It would be a disservice if one were to reveal the journey of the three principal characters -- Samar, Meera and Akira -- since the plot changes from conventional to unconventional in its second hour.

JAB TAK HAI JAAN is attention-grabbing from inception till conclusion. The drama only soars higher and the complex love story gets more and more gripping as the conflict between the characters come to the fore. Mind you, JAB TAK HAI JAAN is not the usual 'love triangle', with two women fighting for the same guy. Nor can you compare it with any Yash Chopra film of yore either.

Yash Chopra's brilliancy and vividness is apparent in a number of sequences. And it echoes throughout the film. The poignant moments keep you on the periphery, while the culmination to the narrative may meet with extreme reactions. However, I strongly feel, the conclusion is most befitting for a film that doesn't take the beaten to death pathway. The only hiccup is that it gets too slow-paced at times. Also, the screenplay could've been tighter at places. A few sequences in the post-interval portions could've been spruced up for a stronger impact.

When Yash Chopra, A.R. Rahman and Gulzar join hands for a film project, the expectations are gargantuan. Its music has to meet the lofty expectations. Chopra Sr.'s music has had an eternal impact, but the songs here aren't of that towering calibre that you would anticipate from a Yash Chopra movie. Yet, the melodies that merit a mention are 'Challa', 'Saans' and 'Jiya Re'. While on music, the music piece and its choreography in the first hour deserve brownie points.

The DoP [Anil Mehta] and the production designer give the film a radiant look that befits a classic. The cinematography is surreal, grandiose and simply overwhelming. The vibrant frames add to the magnificence of this already spectacular looking film. The costume designers too come up with a wardrobe that's brimming with stunning outfits.

Event films such as JAB TAK HAI JAAN are, generally, embellished with seasoned actors. That's one of the fundamental reasons why these films appear so tempting. In addition, assembling such accomplished names [in lead roles as also supporting characters] is a rarity and there's a strong possibility that one may not see them sharing screen space ever again.

One can't imagine anyone else but Shah Rukh in the role of Samar. An individual with an emotional baggage. Although Shah Rukh has been an integral part of several romantic movies, he enacts it resplendently in JAB TAK HAI JAAN, brushing off any condemnation that he may have encountered for replicating himself in movies of parallel genre. The role gives the actor abundant opportunity to exhibit his talent and I must add, Shah Rukh transforms himself into the complex character with dexterity.

Katrina is the classic Yash Chopra heroine. An enigmatic beauty, who doubles up as a seductress [watch her in the 'Saans' track or the music piece]. She looks ethereal and enacts her part with elegance and restraint. As a matter of fact, she glides into her part with effortlessness and acts out some of the difficult moments with flourish. In view of the fact that a major portion of the story focuses on SRK and Katrina, one might assume that Anushka's role is more of a supporting one, but that's entirely fallacious. She's an integral part of this story and it must be said that she walks away with some of the best scenes and lines in the movie. Her performance is full of grit.

Rishi and Neetu Kapoor are endearing in a cameo. Anupam Kher, also in a cameo, pitches in a neat performance as Katrina's father. Sarika is first-rate in a pivotal part.

On the whole, JAB TAK HAI JAAN resonates an oft-repeated fact: Love stories will come and go. But no one will make them like Yash Chopra. Just don't miss this heartwarming love story!
