Yash Chopra's Last Offering Of Love

By MovieTalkies.com, 13 November 2012 4 / 5

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review In Short :
A story about love, loss and destiny... told in typical Yash Chopra style


Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review Verdict
:
Without a doubt, the movie is a must watch for many reasons- the Yash Chopra touch, Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback as a romantic hero and the two lovely leading ladies...


Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review Story Plot:
Major Samar Anand (Shah Rukh Khan) is ‘The Man Who Cannot Die’, an intrepid Army officer attached to the Bomb Disposal Squad, who tempts fate with every operation in Jammu and Kashmir and seems to go out of his way to challenge Death. Akira (Anushka Sharma) is a young and chirpy documentary film-maker, who runs into Samar while on an assignment and gets drawn to his stoicism and mysterious aura.

As Akira delves deeper into his past, she discovers a different Samar- a happy-go-lucky youth staying in London, who fell in love with Meera (Katrina Kaif) before losing her in a strange twist of fate. Things get complicated when Samar has to go to London to help Akira with her assignment and his past life intrudes in his life with a painful jolt-quite literally.

How things unfold and whether Samar gets re-united with the love of his life is something that watching the movie will help you discover...


Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review Performances:
It had been reported many times in the past that Jab Tak Hai Jaan is Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback to romance and the King Khan proves that he is still at the top of the game. As Samar, Khan plays the romantic lover-boy and the stoic soldier with equal ease. His charming and dimpled smile is as impressive as his intense scowl, not to mention his undeniable screen presence. As far as the leading ladies go, Katrina Kaif looks like a million bucks - as always and the actress, who is often accused of being weak in the emoting department, might manage to surprise you with efforts that she has put in the role. Katrina’s character has that ‘tragic beauty’ aura to her, which is simply attractive. On her part, Anushka Sharma as Akira too is good enough and her brash, flirty and bratty ways are like a breath of fresh air after all that ‘heavy duty romance’.


Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review Direction:
Well, its a Yash Chopra product, so you know what to expect. The man knew his love stories and the associated emotions and his master craft is on full display in his last flick. Every scene and frame has a beauty of its own, whether it be the pastoral locales of Kashmir or the cobbled streets of London. The late Chopra effectively manages to weave a larger than life love story that shall be remembered- Jab Tak Hai Jaan.


Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review Music:
Right from the pleasant 'çhalla' to the melodious 'saans' to the peppy 'jiya re', the music of the film wil make you fall in love.


Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review Final Word:
There are no two ways about it... Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a must watch for everyone from Shah Rukh Khan fans to fans of Yash Chopra to fans of larger than life love stories...

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 13 October 2012 3.5 / 5

Three masters of Bollywood - Yash Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan and A.R Rahman - to come together is the rarest of rare phenomenon which is quite similar to a dreamcome true as the magic unfolds in Jab Tak Hai Jaan. This rare event has turned in a marvel with Gulzar saheb's brilliant work. This Yash Chopra venture is more of A.R Rahman as the two masters come up with a memorable outing.

 
The album starts with pleasant beats of Challa that mixes smooth guitar with Rabbi Shergill's sufiana voice while creating perfect magic. Poetic lyric that blends with Rabbi's voice and his guitar explore the depth of universe together. The track has amazing chorus, drums, high notes and all of that is enough to mark another milestone in Rahman's journey of excellence.
 
In the next track Saans the elegance of Yash Chopra fuses well with master work of A.R Rahman, hence resulting in a soft and melodious rendition. The violin and piano in background accompanied by musical troupe creates a perfect aura with rich flavor of music. This number has a lot of A R Rahman in it that shapes up as a light and relaxing number. The 'reprise version' of this song is quite similar to the previous one with only difference in beats that slows down as the track proceeds ahead.
 
The album moves ahead with a duet track Ishq Shava (in the vocals of Raghav Mathur and Shilpa Rao) and it brings a strong essence of Arabic music fusing with Bollywood style of music. This track aims at indulging a sensual feel in order to aptly support its genre. Though this one seems to be a situational track, overall feel is not so catchy and it turns out to be a dull average track.
 
Thegrief of parting away from the beloved comes out very well in the track Heer. The track opens with a touch of Punjabi folk that is strongly carried forward by very similar musical arrangements that complement each other quite well. The rhyming lyrics here have a depth of sea as the background poetry explores the depth of ocean, hence resulting in a soft, sad and soothing number that hasbeen delivered well by Harshdeep Kaur. The track will make you feel lighter as you start feeling the song with your closed eyes, lying down on the couch in the corner of the room with a sense that would be further enhanced by lights going dim.
 
A semi-classical solo track in the vocals of Neeti Mohan comes up in Jiya Re which seamlessly blends techno instrumental music along with an unusual female rap that smoothens down in the later portions to result in a pleasant and soothing effect. This one is a cool outing where sound of claps dominate the music further, hence refreshing the mood of thelisteners.
 
A lot off saaz accompanied by a beautiful aawaz comes up in the track Jab Tak Hain Jaan which has the vocals of Javed Ali and Shakthishree Gopalan. The track starts on low notes and takes off with soft melodious voice that slowly climbs up the ladder of musical scale. The lyrics of the track are quite inspirational whereas the melody is the centrifugal force as everything else rotates and revolves around it. A typical Rahman creation, it has its trademark intact as the track changes the course of musical stream in the middle. 
 
The 'poetic version' which is also the title track has been delivered, excelled and recited himself by the King Khan. This poetic piece is a true symbol of love, a beautiful heart and a mad lover who desires to love and die for his belovedtill eternity. Shahrukh has created an inspiration for love birds that scores a 'ton' on the green lush pitch of love.
 
Rahman has been the maestro of instrumental music and he recreates the magic in the instrumental music of Ishq Dance. The track opens up with Spanish beats as the master plays his heart, brain and talent out in the track. The music invites you to dance for your beloved riding on the cloud nine and holding her hands while forgetting the worldly rituals.
 
Overall, this one is an amazing experiment by masters of this wonderful cine-world. Each track offers something different and is unusual which makes the album quitespecial in its' own way. So hear it and fall in love.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan TRIVIA

While shooting in London for Yash Chopra's film, Katrina Kaif was in a fix when she had to wear shorts, skirts and tube tops when the temperatures fall. The option was to push the schedule, instead Katrina Kaif sipped hot ginger tea between shots and continued shooting despite of the temperature.
