Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Review From An Ordinary Man

Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Expectations

(You can read this post without hesitation. I’ll not post a single spoiler.)

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is the latest movie from the veteran & recently died veteran director Yash Chopra, famous for movie like Silsila, Dewaar, Darr, Dil To Pagal Hai & Veer Zaara. This movie is starred by romance boy Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif & Anushka Sharma.

When Veer Zaara was released I was too young to understand it. When I saw it for the first time it looked to me like a garbage. However, I saw this movie after 4/5 years and I became so touched & was emotionally attached to this movie like none other films at that time. I’ve watched this movie probably 20/30 times after that. Likewise, the dialogues, the cinematography, the climax, the plot still touches me like the first time. This magic happened because this was a YASH CHOPRA movie, the man who has his own kingdom of love on celluloid.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Excitement

So this movie was released on 13 November 2012. I was impatiently looking for a good prints. (As no Bollywood films release in Bangladesh yet). I found some cheap camrips but they didn’t look appealing. I was eagerly waiting for a DVDScr rip. ALAS! It still hasn’t come after 5days of releasing! So yesterday I downloaded a filtered camrip & watched this awesome, mind-blowing, YASH CHOPRATASTIC movie. Again, I’ve fell in love!!!

Jab Tak Hai Jaan has the most decent crew onboard. Oscar winner AR Rahman as music director, Oscar winner Gulzar as lyrics writer, 17 Filmfare award winner, romance king Shahrukh Khan, gorgeous & beautiful Katrina Kaif & the young lady Anushka Sharma. Besides, who can forget the one & only king of romance on-screen? YASH CHOPRA.

Coming to the review of Jab Tak Hai Jaan


Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Review

It’s YASH CHOPRATASTIC! YES it certainly is. It has all the elements you’ll ask for a YC film.

The movie starts with Samar Anand (Shahrukh Khan) An army officer who works in bomb disposal of Indian army. Shahrukh has played a marvelous, tremendous & outstanding job in this character. YES. It stands upright to previous legends like Veer Pratap Singh & Raj. So certainly both SRK & Yash Chopra deserve ‘THANKS’ for this,

Katrina looked real nice in the whole film. But her performance has brutally failed to me. Her expressions weren’t as real as it should. We all know Katrina mainly plays a barbie-doll role & first time she tried to do some acting & failed. But you’ll not be regretting for this since the other heroine Anushka Sharma has done a fine & excellent job. Anushka was so lively in the whole movie. Moreover, she rocked along with SRK in the whole movie. From my view, SRK+Anushka was better than Katrina+SRK,

The cinematography should get real praise. The background music was grand too. The dialogues were touchy too. (like Veer Zaara, Dil To Pagal Hai). The only negative thing I found is the 2nd co-incidence in the 2nd half. It was kinda unrealistic. Except this & Katrina’s performance, the movie was rock solid & has it’s own ground like previous YC film.

Some Unforgettable Moments

Where can I start & where can I end? I’m in love with SAMAR ANAND. This army officer has his own view of life. He doesn’t wear a suit to defuse bombs. (You’ll know why if you see the movie). His angry looks, less talking won my heart. Besides, there are couple of scenes in the movie which will be remembered for by me.


On the whole all I can say is the film will be remembered… The performances will be remembered… Yash Chopra will be remembered.… Jab Tak Hai Jaan will be remembered… Jab Tak Hai Jaan!!!

Rating: 8.5/10
