    A great comeback by the legendary director Yash Chopra. Flawless screenplay by Aditya Chopra. There is no doubt the Chopra's have directed only Shahrukh Khan since his arrival in Industry.
    A great performance by Shahrukh Khan. Has been long time since he has done romantic movies and has proved once again that he is still the King.
    Music was also very good. Also the choreography for the
    Ishq Shava song was simply great. SRK didnt seem that old dancing to that song. Expand

    ROMANCE.. Shahrukh's known for that.. and he has made sure that he will be known forever. One of the Best Romantic movies of all time in Bollywood.. DRAMA.. Who else can be more dramatic than SRK. The story unravels nicely. The movie keeps up with the high expectations of the JTHJ fans.. ACTING.. Srk, Katrina and Anushka, everyone has done a good job. Srk particularly has given a youthful, strong and masculine performance in various portions of the movie.. MUSIC.. A.R Rahman, The Maestro strikes the chord again. Most of the songs will go home with You.. Challa brings back Rabbi Shergill.. DIRECTION.. Very good.. Great Locales.. and one of Yash Chopra's best. The combination of Yash Chopra and Srk has always worked.. and this time it will become one of the highest grosser.. I am an SRK fan.. just like my girl.. so i give 10/10..

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan, the last movie by the great legend Yash Chopra is an outstanding movie. It can be considered as one of the best ever. The performances by Shah Rukh Khan,Katrina Kaif & Anushka Sharma are wonderful and really heart touching.Hats off to the one and only A.R.Rahman for the wonderful music.This is truely an amazing film.It is a treat to watch throughout the 3 hours. I really loved watching it.

    It is the story of Samar Anand(Shah Rukh Khan) who was in London in an simple but happy way.Meera(Katrina Kaif) comes into his life.While teaching her how to sing he falls in love with her.They like each other but Meera promises infront of god,that she will not be together with Samar because her father wants her to marry someone else.Samar faces an accident and Meera feels scared that his life will be lost as she promised god.She tells her that they cannot be together.Heartbroken Samar goes back to India where he battles with life and death everyday as a Bomb Disposer in Indian Army.
    Akira(Anushka Sharma) meets Samar and finds out about his story from his diary.Akira gradually falls in love with him.While Samar comes back to London to help Akira to complete her documentary he meats with another accident.He loses his memory.His memory is back to the time where he had a similar accident while he was with Meera.Akira meets Meera and tells her the situation.Meera acts as Samar's wife inorder to make him happy and feel better. But one day Samar disposes a bomb on a train and while doing that his memory comes back.Heartbroken Samar goes back to India.But Meera comes to India to meet him.He is finally able to get together with her after 10 years.Akira presents her documentary calling it "The Man Who Cannot Die. "

    For the performances Shah Rukh Khan is absolutely superb as Samar Anand.This is one of his career's most challenging roles which he does so perfectly.He does full justice to his role.He shows a wide versatile performance as his role as Major Samar Anand contrasts from his early life in London.He looks great with Katrina Kaif who also does her role extremely well.She gives a heart touching performance as Meera.As always she is able to charm the audience and she gives a great performance, looking wonderful throughout the movie.She looks sweet as the young Meera.The chemistry she shares with Shah Rukh is great to watch.The jodi looks fantastic in all the songs specially the heart touching Heer,Sensual Saans and ofcourse Ishq Shava is totally stunning.Anushka Sharma is bubbly,cool,gorgeous and she is simply wow.As innocent Akira she gives her best performance in her career till date.She looks great in Jiya Re. Mr.Yash Chopra have given us a wonderful movie,his final salute to us.The great legendary filmmaker who gave so many lovely movies, the king of romance will be forever remembered.Bollywood fans around the world will always remember you, Jab Tak Hai Jaan...

    A typical Yash Chopra's movie. Shahrukh has performed up to the mark and also Anuskha. Katrina's chemistry with SRK is superb. Its a come-back of SRK into romance. A.R Rahman has delivered his stuff.

    Even by the freewheeling, mood-swinging standards of Bollywood, the pronounced disparity between the pre- and post-intermission halves of Jab tak hai jaan is more than a tad jarring. Indeed, viewers may feel they've been treated to an oddly matched double bill -- a delightfully vivacious romantic dramedy, followed by an Old Hollywood sort of psychological melodrama.

    The film has a freshness that would never lead one to think it was directed by an 80-year-old while at the same time it has a sureness of tone, a certainty about itself even at its most audacious, that comes from the hand of a seasoned master.

    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.
