Yash Chopra's last labour of love was his dream ever since his last outing as a director with Veer-Zaara.

Almost miraculously, the disparate elements add up to an improbably entertaining hybrid.

A sumptuous if rather soulless love story.

"Jab Tak Hai Jaan" serves as a fitting tribute to the career of Chopra.

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.

Shahrukh Khan has played this sort of role so many times and said the same lines over and over that there is nothing new to comment on.

Audience Reviews for Jab Tak Hai Jaan

I wonder why Yash Chopra decided to end his directorial career with this one. As if a decade old rejected project was being given a chance back with modifications to suit the time-lapse. There's nothing new or interesting so far as the storyline (love-life of a daredevil/death-defying army officer) is concerned. For the visual effects, it's fine, but that's all there's to it. The performances were okay, though. It'd have been better had he let Veer Zara (which again told the story of two separated lovers with a third actress playing a role in uniting them) be the last one. While Veer-Zara was no less conventional, at least it didn't come off as a hasty project. To each, their own. Check it out for yourself; you might savor it more than any of his other works. (To say the least, rest assured, the movie-viewing experience is far better & endurable than reading this amateur comment.) As a tribute to late Yash Chopra, THE ace (dominating!!) film-maker, I'm assigning this flick 1/5.

I coulda swore they were going to go for the chinese ending... WHEW. But, how do they make him look young again... I mean seriously

As always with Indian movies these days - first half is actually decent. They key is LEAVE during the intermission - because the director will suddenly realise they haven't packed in enough drama for the multiple-screenings-cinema-going-audience and will have to cram a centuries worth of drama into an hour.

On the plus side - SRK looking damn good for once in his life. The rugged look is working for him and makes him seem less plastic and more fantastic. It somehow gives him the appearance of being able to act - not just be Shah Rukh.

Watch the first half. Enjoy watching SRK diffuse bombs and Katrina do some underground dancing. Enjoy briefly ridiculous yet charming moments such as coffee cups being thrown around in dramatic angst. And then LEAVE. Leave during the intermission or soon after. Leave before the thing becomes Bollywood madness with cliched plotlines and and unnervingly unrealistic desire to waste your life.
