Both #JTHJ and #SOS neck to neck. At places, #JTHJ is ahead. At places, #SOS. It's a joyous Diwali for the film industry!

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

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review (Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Poster)
Rating: 3/5 stars (Three stars)
What's Good: The well-played out love stories; the music; the direction and cinematography.
What's Bad: The tiring climax; some performances.
Loo Break: None.
Watch or Not?: Jab Tak Hai Jaan is worth a watchUser Rating:
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?
Shah Rukh Khan And Katrina Kaif (Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Stills)
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.
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.
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 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
