Bhoora, Gora Gaye bazaar, wahan se laaye Bomb ka achaar

Gore ne diya bhaav
Bhoora bola, assi major saab

Review

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.

Cut to the past and JTHJ shows Jesus was the first person to be knighted by the British empire–Take that Israel !! It gives an important message to the all those desis trying to make it big in the US- If you are an Indian- perform on the streets, and strum the guitar even if you dont know a thing about it–sir jesus will take care of the music n all…and if you are a Pakistani– Well befirend that Indian

In JTHJ, PKD (Pyaar ka devta OR srk) pataos pseudo punjabi gori chic and asks her, aap meri pappi pe tappi toh nahi maroge…10 seconds of co-salivation later..tussi tappi ni maari…hun saanu ik vaari hor pappi chaidi..
So Our Meera because of the pehla pyaar now gets into ANAND (quite literally)..and we see exactly why JTHJ is a family movie.. The husbands started their own meeras draped in white satin over their naked bodies and wives started noticing how their husbands are adjusting themselves in the seats and the teeanged kids saying, ‘hell now we’re talking’.
There are a lot of songs worth of pre-smabhog moments and then because of that one of the 7 sins- Jealousy takes the centerstage and Sir Jesus says well, you know what enough fondling, Ab mere liye isey Chhod do…

JTHJ gives hope to Indian youth and tells them, well you know what, after you have done it all, you can always fall back on the Indian Armed forces, because we are waiting for you to come and diffuse all our bombs, after Army me jaana mushkil thode hi hai,,,Mushkil toh pyaar karna hai.
If all this prem manthan not enough, there’s more for you in JTHj…it takes Ghajini to a whole new level…It borrows from the title track of Shaan – Pyaar karne wale, pyaar karte hain shaan se etc etc..So PKD says …mmm meera ne kaha london chhod do… akira ne kaha army chhod do..ab bhagwaan keh raha hai memory chhod do…ye memoryloss toh retrograde hi hoga…mmmm

The best moment of Hindi cinema and the most defining moment of Queen Elizabeth‘s life comes when the British finally paid of the Indian Karz of years of ruling and exploitation. The British official allows an unidentified desi to walk into a train having a bomb and allows him to diffuse it –It shows how much the British trust the Desis especially with bombs and all..

JTHJ is an accomplished love story,,,it can make you restless and impatient with its soul shaking moment– You may seriously face identity crisis and shake the soul inside of you questioning–why did I come here to watch this movie? Its extremely emotional and very Cent-i-MENTAL. I shed a lot of tears while watching this movie… It happens to me whenever I am feeling sleepy and trying to keep my eyes open and yawning 15 times in half an hour. I can very well say my tears can be attributed to the YAWN shoshan courtesy JTHJ
JTHJ is sort of a redefining the meaning film– It redfines the meaning of Boredom, patience, time, love and most importantly Bad.
