    1920-EVIL RETURNS devours CHICKEN KHURANA! Coming to last week’s releases, Vikram Bhatt’s horror flick, 1920-EVIL RETURNS, is on way to a clean hit as it has already netted close to 19 crore (to be validated) which is just superb considering its total landing cost of 8-9 crore. The other release of the week, Anurag Kashyap’s LUV SHUV TEY CHICKEN KHURANA, could not make mark except in parts of North and could only manage around 7.75 crores. LINK

  • An overstretched, archaic romance. Shah Rukh Khan is its minor saving grace

    This birth, next birth. This generation, that generation. That God, this God. Empty, rhetorical conversations with God, in the garb of life-affirming faith. Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ) has archaic ideas about love and existence, mostly concocted in its regressive characters’ heads. Unrequited love hopes for consummation in the next birth. The leading lady is a fatalistic believer in religion and self-denial. For a film spanning 3 hours, these antics, propelled by passionate love, are sore and laughable. The story of JTHJ, written by Aditya Chopra and Devika Bhagat, isn’t much of a story—just a patchwork of tried-and-tested situations, disclosing any of which will kill your thrill of guessing the next predictable turn of events. http://www.livemint.com/Leisure/F9q8y3TrDY1KqvjL2AtVEO/The-love-ward.html

  • Glamsham film review of Jab Tak Hai Jaan

    Glamsham film review of Jab Tak Hai Jaan By Martin D’Souza, Glamsham Editorial The late Yash Chopra is known for grandeur and an eye for detail. His last outing behind the camera is lavish on both counts. The splendor of Ladakh and London is captured beautifully – the detailing of scenes is impeccable. The late director infuses romance into every situation; capturing the mood of even the flowers in the vases! Every scene has a connotation to the ones preceding or the ones gone by. Only the length is a bit tiring as he labours to bring the love story to its ultimate end. FULL

  • jab-tak-hai-jaan-10-important-life-lessons-from-the-film

    ou probably know by now that ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ is a heavy duty romance triangle between Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma played out over a period of 10 years. If unrequited love isn’t your thing, this is a film to skip. But JTHJ is also a great example of how cinema can teach you not to be stupid in life or take it completely for granted. There are spoilers ahead so if you haven’t seen the film, please feel free to come back later. This was director Yash Chopra’s swansong and his hand is evident in every scene of the film, some beckoning you to postcard-perfect, snow-covered London and some to the rugged terrains of Ladakh. We pick the 10 most

  • My take on the word-of-mouth of JAB TAK HAI JAAN

    I returned yesterday night from a Kolkata screening of Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Out of four screens, three were devoted to Jab Tak Hai Jaan while one was given to Son of Sardaar. To top that, all three Jab Tak Hai Jaan screens were nearly housefull but the Son of Sardaar screen was practically empty (I could see because INOX does not have security outside every individual screen, at least for the one I went). I won’t give my review of the film here (you can look it up in my blog by today), but I will try to gauge the audience reactions. For one, there was no mass hysteria upon SRK’s entry in the film, which is unlike several other centres. Second, the one

  • Diwali Puja Witnesses Record Collections

    Diwali Puja Witnesses Record Collections This Diwali has seen record collections with a 21 crore nett approx combined total by Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar. Diwali day is always weak for business but has jumped 45% from last year when Ra.One collected 14.50 crore nett. If one film had come alone it had the potential to take the whole amount or at least close to it. The totals for the last few Diwali days has been as follows. FULL

  • Review: JAB TAK HAI JAAN Jerks A Few Tears, Earns A Few Jeers, Caps A Career

    J Hurtado, Contributing Writer It’s difficult to talk about Jab Tak Hai Jaan without putting it in its proper context. Not only is the the final film of one of Bollywood’s most beloved auteurs, and the author of the modern romantic cinema in which so much of India still revels, Yash Chopra, it’s also the latest film from one of the Hindi film industry’s biggest stars, Shah Rukh Khan. It couldn’t be lugging around heavier baggage. There is the temptation to sentimentalize about Chopra’s career and allow that feeling to seep into any kind of critical response to the film, a reaction to which I may not even find myself immune, however, Jab Tak Hai Jaan delivers exactly as it is supposed to on all

  • Review: Son of Sardaar is an unapologetic Bollywood entertainer , DNAIndia

    Film: Son of Sardaar Director: Ashwni Dhir Cast: Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Juhi Chawla Rating: *** This one is for die-hard fans of the Bollywood masala genre. There is larger-than-life herogiri, gravity-defying maar-dhaad, cheesy dialogue-baazi and a happy ending. Son of Sardaar opens with a song that lists the many virtues of the community. And almost immediately, the action moves to a London nightclub where our turbaned hero Jaswinder Singh Randhawa aka Jassi (Ajay) beats up the baddies with some help from a Pathan buddy (Salman Khan in a cameo). Déjà vu? Not quite! A vengeance drama that has slapstick comedy thrown in for good measure, Son of Sardaar uses every trick in the book to grab the eyeballs of its target audience.

  • Movie Review: ‘Logic is the biggest casualty in Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ by Piyasree Dasgupta, FirstPost.com

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan makes life look easy. So easy that a self proclaimed 25-year-old, who looks 40, gets to kiss a girl who seems to have walked out of Vogue. You also believe that the latter, despite all her Mercedes and Gucci glory, can’t keep her hands off a waiter who has an annoying habit of speaking like he is perpetually in an art of living class. Life’s so easy, that an aspiring documentary-maker, can walk straight into an army camp in Ladakh in barely visible hot pants and prance around shooting, presumably stuff, while there are people detonating bombs all around her. Also, if you have legs like Anushka Sharma’s, you belong to a curiously privileged class who can dance around in beach

  • Son Of Sardaar First Day Business-BOI

    Wednesday 14th November 2012 11.30 IST Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network Son Of Sardaar collected around 8.50 crore nett on day one as per early estimates. Again like Jab Tak Hai Jaan the film was hit by Diwali Puja, actually it was affected more by Diwali Puja as its best business was in circuits that are hit hard by Diwali festivities like East Punjab, CI and Rajasthan. The clash with Jab Tak Hai Jaan also hurt the film especially UP where the lack of good single screens meant business remained behind Jab Tak Hai Jaan when it should have been going by trends in MP where the release was balanced and Son Of Sardaar came out of head. The film will show a huge jump today but

  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan First Day Business-BOI

    Wednesday 14th November 2012 10.30 IST Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network The first day collections of Jab Tak Hai Jaan are in the 12.50-12.75 crore nett range as per early estimates. The collections were hit hard from 1 pm onwards due to Diwali Puja but circuits like West Bengal and Mysore came up with fantastic collections both comfortably crossing the 1 crore nett mark. The collections are short of the figures recorded by Ra.One last year which is due to the clash with Son Of Sardaar. The business of the film in single screens was much weaker than multiplexes as the opening was not that strong in single screens especially mass pockets. Jab Tak Hai Jaan will show a big jump in business today though again the

  • 2/5 – Jab Tak Hai Jaan Official Movie Review by UpperStall.com

    All in all, JTHJ is not the ideal farewell for Yashji, just sporadically having traces of his signature. It is more appropriate that we continue to remember him for his older masterpieces instead. One so desperately wants to applaud Yash Chopra’s swan-song for all that he’s given to Hindi cinema down the years. But try as one might, one can’t help but feel that Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ) is not quite the epic love ballad that Yashji wanted it to be. Sure, there’s the A1 mounting with stunning locales, there’s the strong cast and brilliant technical crew with money spent on the production like water but ultimately the weak and (highly) illogical storytelling lets the film down ending in a 179 minutes dreary experience that just seems to go on

  • Sanket’s Review: “Jab Tak hai Jaan”- amidst its long run-time, it has moments in it.

    Cast: Shahrukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif Director: Yash Chopra Length: 2.55 hours approx. One has to agree that Yash Chopra have made this film with sheer heart. The sparkling moments that the film has got, says louder. He has two set of love stories in one film, and both has opposite texture- One is a larger-than-life, and another one is more of modern, contemporary which has a bohemian type girl who reflects today’s girls. The film starts off breezily and has good moments. Some scenes between Shahrukh and Katrina are so good that you instantly feel for them. Specific mention about the scene on station, just after the “Ishq Shava” song. Although the film is predictable, it still manages to keep you hooked. But

  • Just back from Jab Tak Hai Jaan

    Just back from Jab Tak Hai Jaan. A bunch of us , 11 in all, 4 men and 7 women, ages ranging from 12 to 56, went together to see it at the 1.40pm show. We thought if we delay it , and the movie was bad, the bad word of mouth may make it impossible for us to catch it ever. And we can kind of sit through it if it was bad as long as we were in a group. I did see it before reading any review. And I am writing this before readinga single review. Well, I did have a suspicion it would be bad , but even in my dreams I could not think it would be this bad. Cliché

  • Movie Review: ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ – 2 stars

    Story The hero (Shah Rukh Khan) is a poor man. The girl (Katrina Kaif, as always playing the overseas Indian to justify an odd Hindi accent) belongs to the rich, stuffy upper class. He shows her the pleasures of being in the uninhibited lower-deck. She gets to let herself loose, value the fun things of life. They hit it off. This premise is probably as old as Titanic and only as recent as Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar. The lead couple are in love. They realise it almost at the same time. There is the slight issue over the girl being already engaged to someone else. But it’s not the kind of problem that can’t be overcome. These are freer times. Neighbourhoods and relatives don’t get to

  • Review: Jab Tak Hai Jaan’s breezy romance has weak story

    Sukanya Verma feels Jab Tak Hai Jaan is nothing more than lovely fluff that could have been shorter, snappier but is definitely worth watching once for the man whose name appears against the bright blue sky – Mr Yash Chopra   A rookie documentary filmmaker discovers a diary storing a ten-year-old romance of a man who cannot die and decides to shoot a movie on him. The man in question has lost his heart to a flawless beauty while shoveling snow outside a grand cathedral in United Kingdom and now diffuses bombs in the Indian army .
