Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a long movie, the full movie is nearly 3 hour long Bollywood flick about a man that works for the Indian Army and is a Bomb disposal person. The difference is that he defuses the bombs without the safety of a suite or anything of that nature. The story finds us immersed in his journey and we go back in time after a reporter finds his journal and is interested to find out more about this man.
The movie then leaves the Bomb plot line for about over an hour to take us back to how he became a bomb specialist. Who or what caused him to take on such risk? It all cam down to as always the love of a women. They had an epic love story and the dude challenges God to allow him to see the women again if he lives dies bla bla. You will be enthralled by watching the movie online and fall in love with the story and characters. It does have the Bollywood songs as well but nothing stand-out as the big hit song for me. This is Yash Chopra’s last film before he passed away and as always it has that high quality and all the elements you expect in a Yash Chopra masterpiece. A movie you have to free download if you are a Sharukh Khan and Yash Chopra fan whenever these two get together they have made movie magic. Totally worth to watch. Young kids should watch this with parents as the bomb scenes can be a bit far fetched as in what is reality and what is not. Totally recommended.
Stars : Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma
While many elements of the story feel very, been there and done that in term of Bollywood romance movies, it is still an entertaining watch. Some parts of the story are pretty over dramatic and hokey and the movie moves at a sluggish pace in the beginning parts. However, it builds up to a final act that packs a pretty emotional and sweet punch. The movie also succeeds in honoring the late Yash Chopra in its final moments, and it certainly adds to the movie's effect as a whole. As a whole, it isn't a life changing movie, but it is overall a good one that fans of this type Indian romance should check out.

No todos estan acostumbrados al estilo de Bollywood, cuyas cintas duran cerca de 4 horas, involucran una historia de amor entre una mezcla de generos y son adornadas con extravagantes numeros musicales y elaboradas coreografias. "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" es una buena introduccion ya que presenta una historia muy accesible y entretenida y a un grupo de actores muy carismaticos. El argumento parece salido de una telenovela (con toda la ingenuidad y cursileria que uno esperaria) pero al final la pelicula nos deja con una sonrisa a pesar de durar casi tres horas. "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" es una propuesta hindu muy simpatica. Recomendable.

Watched portions of 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' (mostly the songs) at home on blu-ray (very high quality rendition) again after the screening in the theatre in Hyderabad. Plus, I have been playing AR Rahman's score in my car for the last two+ months. As inane and hackneyed as the storyline is, one must admit that late Yash Chopra's passion for and prowess in putting a visually rich romance together still manages to shine through it all bright and warm as ever. Agreed that Anil Mehta's cinematography, Gulzar's lyrics (especially 'Challa', by Rabbi Shergil), Vaibhavi Merchant's choreography (especially the tough 'Ishq Shava'), and Rahman's music and score that keeps growing on you will all be there for us to enjoy more of, from other projects, but alas we all will miss Yash Chopra's unique touch of love for life and love for love :-(
