Trivia

Katrina Kaif was often spotted smoking cigarettes with Shah Rukh Khan on the sets of the film, which led to some public controversy. See more »

Goofs

In a flashback scene, Katrina is shown as a British child praying in the church. It might have been deliberate to show that in real life Katrina is from a British descent; however unless she was adopted, in the film it doesn't make sense how she is a White-British but her parents are Indians.

One of the year's best.....!!!!
13 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Jab Tak Hai Jaan - In a time dominated by South Indian remakes and illogical stunts comes a movie that is so refreshingly different from those mindless sagas. A movie that connects to that Old World charm and beauty of a special feeling called Love. A movie that will make you feel good about life and gives you hope about love. Though an Love Story on the surface, the movie has its own layers of emotional undercurrent running from its inception till the last frame.

And The Great Yash Chopra is not called a LEGEND just like that, he justified his legendary status yet again with a MASTERPIECE.

And there is no match for SRK when it comes to intense roles. He excelled in a role tailor made for him only. When MR Bachhan calls his' act as "THE BEST" after Swades, who are we to comment on that. Still, I believe this movie will not appeal to all, as not everyone is born with a good taste and we can't help it.
