You can read my review of the music of Jab Tak Hai Jaan in the link below :-
A part of the review is given below :-
A. R. Rahman is a curious case. On the one hand, his musical compositions can soar to unbelievable heights, as it did in the superb Dil Se… and the epic Jodhaa Akbar. On the other hand, it can descend to the depths of painful atrocity, as it did in the Oscar-undeserving Slumdog Millionaire or the failed experiment Blue. So I mean no offence when I say that I am not in awe of his music, considering him a tad over-rated. However, Gulzar is arguably one of the greatest lyricists in Bollywood, and his words flow like poetic melodies which are immensely enjoyable even today.
With that said, what does one expect when such people come together with the late Yash Chopra for a film? Its actually hard to say. But the general perception is that brilliant music is in the offing, and the enthusiasm is very infectious. Soon, all of us were waiting with bated breath for what some were calling as “the soundtrack”; expectations were sky-high and nothing less than spectacular would have worked.
And then came Judgement Day. So what’s the judgement? Well, suffice it to say that the music of Jab Tak Hai Jaan is not what we expected.
