Akira Rai: [Last lines] Samar Anand has diffused 107th bombs without a scratch on his body and right now as we speak he is diffusing his 108th bomb. This is not a story of courage, not a story of miracles, it is just a simple story of love. A undying love that a man had for a woman, an unflinching love that a woman had for a man and an unending faith that God had in their love.

A beautiful epic love story from Yash Chopra!
24 October 2012 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

My uncle has contributed in the editing of the film and is a friend of Shahrukh Khan too.I was able to catch a private screening of Jab Tak Hai Jaan in a theater in Mumbai.Frankly speaking, I was stunned by the movie. Simple plot but the twists and turns in the movie were amazing.I will not reveal the plot details because you will loose interest in it.It's slick,stylish and high on acting and romance.

The Chopras have proved once again that you can always count on them to provide the highest quality cinema. I'd first like to applaud Shahrukh for outdoing himself. His dialog delivery is so amazing, and many times that all there was in a scene, just his voice yet it had me busting out into tears every time. I am still letting this amazing experience sink in but all I can say is, if I ever could say one thing to our King Khan, it would be that, he has truly made me love my life and hope that the love of my life is out there somewhere.The story is so amazing that you want to cry! The climax is so amazing that you want to scream! Yeah,we did scream in the theater hall!What makes this movie so great is if you have no expectation of what is going to happen next. Katrina Kaif did a really good job.She and Samar have a really great chemistry. In the scenes they have together, you totally see how much in love they are with each other. Anushka role is as convincing as the other two leads.She gives a stellar performance! The background score composed by A.R Rehman fits into the scene perfectly and leaves an emotional impact on the viewer.

Undoubtedly,Jab Tak Hai Jaan will break several records upon released.It is a movie that needs to be watched by everyone.It seems like one of those few bollywood movies that are both critically and financially successful.

Consequently, you take what you expect from a Yash Raj movie. Scenerio is perfect and the scenes are memorable just like in Veer Zaara. This would be the movie which shows eternal love. Highly Recommended!!
