Jab Tak Hai Jaan - Movie Review - 3.85 / 5.00

Dear all,

Just watched the eagerly awaited movie Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Overall, like every Yash chopra film, this film also has yash chopra stamp in bringing the emotions of Romance. It is quite pleasant to watch.

Shahrukhan's Charisma is the life line for the movie.  

His entry in Royal Enfield bullet as Samar Anand of Indian Army - Bomb diffusing squad -was amazing.  Whistles went like thunder in chennai theatre where I saw - which was similar to a MGR / Rajini film.

Each and every frame - Yash Chopra had carved Shahrukhan at his best.

A simple story of an Indian Army officer - who had a past when he was a carefree young musician in London and how is his relationship with two women who come across his life - the story telling and the unfoldment of Scenes are precise and excellent.

Camera work is splendid and this is something which YRF always concentrates - The beauty of Ladak, Kashmir and also London suburbs - is a visual treat.

My Likes in the Movie

1. Shahrukhan get-up as Indian Army officer and Young guitar player - amazing contrast with realism.

2. The Role of Anushka Sharma - Akira as a bubbling young girl to achieve and it is her pep-up energy in her acting brings more life to the role. Frequently calling shahrukhan as  - "Hey soldier" is really quite nice to watch.

3.The twist of Shahrukhan getting into retrograde amnesia during second accident, and his impulsive recollection during the bomb alert in London Railway station where he diffuses the bomb with the instinct of his past skill is a DELIGHT to watch.

My Opinion in - either could be avoided or focused well in the Movie

1. Katrina Kaif, smoking scenes should have been avoided. This is not gelling with the movie.

2. Katrina Kaif, could have performed a bit more better on the --- dominant, assertive, in-decisive women character. Nevertheless, She manages.

3. Anupam Kher, Rishi kapoor, Neetu singh, have very less impact in the movie and story line.

My Dislike in the Movie

In my opinion, the biggest drawback, as I would like to put it is - Music by AR Rahman. Totally out of tune, banging the ears, and none of the songs have soul in it except some Artificial Rusty Rumbling sounds tearing your ear drums and thrashing the nerve cells of your brain.

Considering the songs of Darr, Silsila, Veer-Zara, the music of ARR both songs and background score is very below standards.  Why ARR was careless, God only Knows!

These are my opinions as a viewer after viewing the film.

I know, how difficult it is to make a film - which is the work of thousands and thousands of man hours dedicated work and passing judgement/criticize is very easy.

But still as an end-user of the product i.e. viewer, I felt that I too can register my impressions about the Film after watching it.  More like a feedback.

The workings of ratings (My opinion) - in the scale of 5.00

------ Shahrukhan's Charisma                                2.00
------ Yash Chopra Stamp                                    1.85
-------Camera - Visual extravaganza                      1.00
-------Twists in second half                                    1.00
Total                                                                  5.85

------Less: AR Rahman Music                              2.00

Dear Yash Chopra, we will definitely miss you as henceforth there is nobody like you to guide and prompt to focus emotions and carve it to films in a watchable way----Any way you will always be with us, through your master pieces you had created for us.

Praying, for your Soul be rested in the feet of God Eternally.
