Bhoora, Gora Gaye bazaar, wahan se laaye Bomb ka achaar
Bhoora Bola Mai Fussunga, Gora Bola Mai fussunga
Gore ne diya bhaav
Bhoora bola, assi major saab
Bhagwaan Ke liye mujhe ChHod Do
please Bhagwaan ke liye mujhe chHod do
These are legendary lines that have been spoken by various actresses throughout the time line of Hindi Cinema. Here’s finally a movie that justifies these words and makes you believe that everything happens for a reason.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan- the title could not have been more apt. It literally asks its viewers to bear it while their life and the sanity inside it can hold off from exploding like a bomb. Jab Tak Hai Jaan tells a tale of how God works in mysterious ways- Jab miya biwi raazi toh kaand karega paparazzi. Jab Tak Hain Jaan begins its love cum lust tale of Army Jawans and the reason why they are called jawaans. It tells you that discovery reporters’s short chaddis are the reason why they are still in the army and why they allow any 21 year old to call them by their first name as if she was their class buddy. It shows that we have so supremely talented guitar strumming poetry churning, and confident Bomb diffusing men in the army that they would allow a trainee reporter to swing her ass right next to the bomb while filming and chit chatting.

Your husband is reticent to the point of being self-evasive. You are an incorrigible extrovert. How does it work so well between the two of you?
That old Physics law of attraction of opposites! Besides, I need to have a listener, and Murthy is the perfect listener. I realised early on that he is a man of few words, and that I should make my peace with it. Marriage works well if you don’t have grand expectations from each other. I talk, he listens, and it works. Murthy may be economical with words, but he’s a very giving person.
But you like going out for movies, and he’s certainly not one for that…
I take my sister with me. But recently, and it took some doing (the fact that the hall was very close to home helped), I made him watch English Vinglish with me. He liked it. I think it was a brilliant movie, and many middle-class women in India will be able to relate to the subject. Sridevi was a delight to watch.
“A large number of people might see the film because a star is there. Numbers can be deceptive. To me success means when we as a creative team sit together to watch a film before it releases… (do we) feel …

Malayalam). The remake run continues with Ajay Devgn’s Himmatwala (the 1983 original). Sajid Khan, who is directing the film, says, “Mindless
action doesn’t work. It requires the right emotions.”
