My thoughts on Jab Tak hai Jaan : The Death of “Raj”

Throught the film ,yash chopra says srk is the “man who never dies”. I think the “Raj” of srk-yrf is dead in this film.He is killed by the same ppl who once created it.The Raj of yash chopra was known to be the Ram of bollywood.But the Raj here is not someone who used to “respect” women or was a family man. He is a horny pervert and is 20 years too old to do the shit he’s been doing in the film. After 20 years in bollywood ,srk may be hated for his romantic roles but atleast they had dignity.This is a sleazefest.There are scenes ( the whole saans song especially)where it looked like just another mahesh bhatt film starring emraan hasmi.I thought rockstar was hornystar but this is atleast 10 steps ahead of that.As i had said earlier too, this was a role for ranbir.I cannot believe Yash chopra okyaed this and what is wrong with srks script sense?

If at all there is a “story” ,then its laughably bad.srk seems to have some curse that he will meet with an accident whenever he is horny lol!
His memory is like a recycle bin. you can retrieve any data as and when you want it. πŸ˜€ I dont want to give more spoilers,watch the film if you can for more funny scenes . πŸ˜‰
All roles are poorly written and all 3 of the actors are in aweful form. Katrina is terribly exposed in this film.srk has sleepwalked through the film. Anushka was below average but her role is just of a sidekick.The army angle is ridiculous and a pure gimmick to give it some masala. srk said in some interview that this will popularise army? Hahahahahahahahahah

There is only one scene in the climax, a small srk monolugue where i saw glimpses of the srk that we knew.

The film is never ending. The first half is so long that atleast thrice I had decided to walk out in the film. My friend wanted to me walk out just after interval rofl.I told him wait till the climax. I want to know if srk dies or not. πŸ˜€

and finally ,let me categorically state this – This is yash chopra’s WORST film in his career without any qualification.and this is not an exaggeration by any means. watch the film for yourself and read this again.

Rating – 0/5

    has to be the most funny review!!!

    seriously, the great man chopra cant make such bad movie!! i got some feedback which said it was ok, but if this is true it is shocking!

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      there are too many kisses
      its an emraan hasmi film
      after a point,whenever srk came near any of the women,i felt he is going to kiss them.srk never depended on sleaze to establish love in his 20 years
      seems he finally failed to the trend.

      • sneha 10 years ago

        So he is is no more the IDEAL FAMILY GUY wch SRK fans rave every no n then rite ??? πŸ˜›

        • Baba Ji 10 years ago

          yes he has killed “Raj” of the old yash chopra world for better or worse.

    • aryan 10 years ago

      To me, a zero means they put up a blank screen in front of you and you truly get nothing from it. You should give some 1, or 2 or something.

      • Baba Ji 10 years ago

        aryna – i ddint find a single scene worthy of any merit. there is a scene in climax were srk acted like old days but the lines were not very good. I didnt like the BGM was either challa playing in BG or saans.

  4. sputnik 10 years ago

    hmm.. so you did not go in expecting a cheesy romantic melodrama the way you went prepared for the genre of SOTY πŸ˜‰

    And what happened to Jab Tak Hai Jaan being copied from Surya-Menon’s Vaaranam Aayiram πŸ˜‰


    Seriously from whatever I heard of the story the twist and the “……” loss thing sounds ridiculous.

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      sputnik – if this was like soty ,i would have give it 3/5 . you will be shocked to see how bankrupt the film is in every department, watch it. i am not exaggerating anything. I guarantee you , you wll say almost the same things that i said above provided you are true to your self which I am sure you are.

      • Baba Ji 10 years ago

        sputnik – one aspect of that film is copied in jthj. hero pissed off at herione and joins the army.

    Yeah @Baba ji May be agree with your review because at loyal twitter feedback is matching Up your review.
    & also heard that It has More Action than Romance!

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      the film has neither much action nor romance. definitely not the yash chopra romance. may be the imtiaz ali one is there. πŸ˜‰

  10. mate 10 years ago

    First I think Baba ji wrote it just for fun without watching it. Really Is it your genuine review, have you really watched it. If yes then is it too bad to give it 0 rating. I can accept it as your impartial or even partial thoughts, if it would’nt receive rave reviews from all the critics, even the reviews would have been bad, still giving 0 is just ridiculous. A movie that is 8.6 / 10 on IMDB same as Barfi, getting such low from your side, says it all. Though I am yet to watch the movie, this is totally un-acceptable.

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      watch the film and let me know the merits of the film if you find any. i am ready to discuss.

      • mate 10 years ago

        Baba Ji, I usually don’t trust on these ‘paid’ critics, but like Utkal (NG), I am a follower of IMDB for long. Not throughout, but more or less their rating is in accordance with the quality of a movie. Hardly I dislike any movie that has great reviews on IMDB. Often If I intend to watch a movie, first I follow IMDB then watch it, and ends upon liking or disliking it according to the rating. So IMO IMDB is a very useful parameter for judging a movie.

  11. Rex 10 years ago

    Lol, baba’s review is on expected lines πŸ˜€ HAPPY DIWALI TO U BABA & ALL MY ESTRANGED FRIENDS ….HAVE FUN.

    OK i just came to know that the twist are of this types :

    1) Kat makes promise to god that u cure SRK and i wont she him again.
    2) I wont make out with him GOD.

    3) SRK loses memory on accident while returning to london!!

    If this is true…. its hilarious…

    • Shinji 10 years ago

      better title

      Broken Promises πŸ˜‰

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      its true . πŸ˜€ there are other funny moments too. the scene where srk ki yadasht suddenly wapas aa jaati hai.

      • Shinji 10 years ago

        lol i can understand the anda for the movie now…. such twist makes SOS feel like a better movie….. as that one uninhibited, that it is masala movie leave ur brain at home.

  15. Ritz 10 years ago

    ” srk said in some interview that this will popularise army? ”


    Rooney style rating baba – is it that bad?

    Btw from public reactions also those who have said nice things are just saying it sheepishly.

    • Shinji 10 years ago

      nope Ritz dont compare him to me, if i dont like it, and if i feel that bad, than there are negative ratings from my end πŸ˜‰

      • Ritz 10 years ago

        Oho…so u r rooney. Lol. Ok sir, when r u seeing JTHJ?

        • Shinji 10 years ago

          Not anytime soon, and indeed i am rooney, i have usedthe same mail id… but my gravatar of united shirt was not coming thru…

    1) Respect to u man

    5) best wishes.

      • Shinji 10 years ago

        and most important thing, i was able to read all the comments meaning two fold

        1) the color texture is also smooth to eyes. I often find that many a blogs dont pay much attention to eyes of the reader, whether intentionally or not, i feel comfortable reading in ur blog.

        2) there are many sensible comments and u kind of keep the things in control.. way to go

  17. Baba Ji 10 years ago

    Utkals review of JTHJ . basically he was written the same things i wrote. the difference is language. i wrote more explicitly πŸ˜€ but goes to show there is somehting deeply wrong with the film.

    Utkal Ranjan Mohanty
    2 minutes ago near Bangalore, Karnataka Β·
    Just back from Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

    Well, I did have a suspicion it would be bad , but not this bad.

    ClichΓ© piled upon clichΓ©, it was impossible to believe Yash Chopra actually made it.
    Poor struggling young man falling in love with a rich man’s daughter, whose father wants her to marry another young dude. Promise made to Jesus. Memory loss and memory regained. In this time and age? For god’s sake, how could you do this to your own legacy, Yashji?

    And all this desperation on Sharukh’s part. Mouth to mouth kiss. Lovemaking scenes. And dancing salsa. This Khan just can’t. Why does he even try? And Katrina, who w s showing some signs of learning bit of acting, has regressed ten years in this film. The songs are dated and boring. Not one leaves a mark. Though Katrina was wonderfully spicy in her Ishq Shava number. But the sequence was stretched way too long. And Sharukh spoilt it with his pretense that he can dance. And his romance by numbers has passed sell by date a long back, he should realise that.

    The only this that made it somewhat tolerable as Anoushk’as perky presence. Her performance as faultless.

    The script and the direction is so bad that Idon’t want tow aste any more timewriting about it after wasting 3 hours on the film.

    If a film could be senile and puerile at the same time this is it.

    • Shinji 10 years ago

      baba, ami and utkal… 3 negative reviews from trust worthy people, one positive from millind which is taken for a srk movie…

      btw jogniders tweet

      “Final verdict. Only one of the two new releases this Diwali has any chances to cross 100cr and that too just about.”

      • Ritz 10 years ago

        Well , just read the cliches(spoilers) from Ami’s take on film and they are seriously funny πŸ˜€

  18. mate 10 years ago

    Hope Utkal still worship his favourite IMDB as for Aamir Khan movies. πŸ˜‰

    • Ritz 10 years ago

      @mate – IMDB is not much reliable for BW movies as say HW movies but still it has a merit. Wait and watch – ratings normalize and show truer picture after a year or so.

      In fact within 2-3 months of a film’s release, u will start seeing the trend.

      • mate 10 years ago

        Ritz, I disagree that IMDB is reliable only for HW movies. I suggest you to pick any BW movie, but not of your hated star/actor due to ‘obvious’ reason, and check it’s rating, you will find it very near to your own likes/dislikes. Or you can say, whatever be the general perception for a particular movie, the IMDB rating almost matches to that perception.
        However I agree about the ratings normalize and show true picture after some period. But earlier rating indicates where it goes on, especially when number of votes crosses triple figure. For example Barfi rating was 9+ with rougly 2000 votes, and now its 8.7 with 10000+ votes. So I don’t think there is much a difference after 2-3 months or even a year in that case.

        • Baba Ji 10 years ago

          imdb is not 100% reliable for ANY film. the hw movie ratings are mostly dominated by west public and they are biased to their stars and filmmakers. They will rate craps also 8/10.There are many examples and they underrate the asian (not bollywood) films.There is a good level of fanaticism out there.
          As for bw on imdb,the voting participation is too low. it is just like any fb poll.

  19. Shinji 10 years ago

    “That’s not to say Shahrukh provides the only unintentional laughs in the film – Anushka Sharma’s entry itself is funny enough to dislocate your lower muscles – the opening shot is the camera lingering on her bum, after which it roves around to her crotch and then firmly affixes itself to her boobs. She then takes a semi naked dive into a lake in Leh, and then screams that the water is too cold. Perhaps she expected centralized heating in Ladakh lakes.”

    from mihir’s review!! ROFL…

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      LOL! that was a real cringeworthy scene. There is another scene where the camera is fixed into the buttocks of anushka and she is walking in those chaddis.

      the name is Rooney… MKSRooney

  22. stewie griffin 10 years ago

    so salman khan is the only remaining actor who hasn’t compromised his principle of never kissing on screen no matter how hot ur co star is…srk has bowed down to the pressures of maintaining his stardom..that definitely makes salman the coolest star πŸ˜€

    by thhe way baba hilarious review…planning to watch jthj tomorrow and sos too…it seems most critics have given an extra star or two out of thheir pocket due to sympathy for yash chopra’s sad demise..otherwise how can critics like miss chopra and rajeev masand give 3 stars to jthj if the premise is what you guys have said it to be?

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      thanks stewie. πŸ˜€

      yes you are right that most critics are sympathetic towards jthj. they are simply hiding the whole WTFness of the film using “except some flaws” etc type words. But the public who goes and watches knows the truth. film dekho,poori pol khul jaayegi πŸ˜‰

      • stewie griffin 10 years ago

        baba lets see i i tilt towards ur view or milu… πŸ˜€

  23. stewie griffin 10 years ago

    any other film with similar story and these two critics would have raped it

  24. Serenzy 10 years ago

    ” There is only one scene in the
    climax, a small srk monolugue
    where i saw glimpses of the
    srk that we knew. ”

    Yes Baba… That’s the Kind of Intensity SRK Can Bring to a Movie.
    Note the Sequence where he tells Katrina to Choose between him and God.

    That SRK Was Missing in the London Part of Samar.

    Another Part, I Liked was Anushka Interviewing SRK after his Memory Loss in London, Anushka and SRK Under the Bridge Defusing the Bomb and SRK’s Parting Note with Anushka at the Airport.

    I Also Liked the Ishq Shava Sequence.

    The Whole Neetu-Rishi Angle, SRK Memory Loss, Numerous Meetings btwn Anushka-Katrina was Not Reqd.

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      Katrina was fab in Ishq shava but ordinary otherwise. her role was too one-dimensional.

  25. stewie griffin 10 years ago

    i felt anushka tried to be way too bubbly…she is naturally bubbly like preity but if these two actress try being bubbly it ruins the whole thing…..otherwise she was good…about katrina i think you guys are being harsh…she has come a long way and is a very competent actress these days…srk as army guy was the carefree londonwala guy was ok…movie was too long…not even a single funny scene to tickle ur bones..hardly any scene that made u smile…ya some army sequences between those three army guys were good…the main drawback for this film is if u want to make an epic intense love story which hardly has any humour in it..then it should be able to make you emotional..which it did in 1 or 2 scenes only..the lack of humour makes this 3 hr lovestory feel like ages…and i am convinced now that most reviewers have given an extra star or two out of sympathy

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      Yash chopra showed a small towny syndrome in katrina’s character before the song ishq shava. Like Imtiaz in rockstar or cocktail, a herione can become an independent and free women only if she parties and dresses sexily.

  26. Serenzy 10 years ago

    ” not
    even a single funny scene to
    tickle ur bones..hardly any
    scene that made u smile…ya
    some army sequences between those three army
    guys were good…the main
    drawback for this film is if u
    want to make an epic intense
    love story which hardly has
    any humour in it..then it should be able to make you
    emotional..which it did in 1 or
    2 scenes only..the lack of
    humour makes this 3 hr
    lovestory feel like ages ”

    Perfect… Just Perfectly Put.

    Heck, Even 3I, Singham, Dabangg had Huge Number of Cinematic Flaws if We Scrutinise them but they were Such Engaging and Entertaining Fares that One tends to look Beyond the Minor Loopholes and Enjoy the Movie which has Strong Performances and Some Apt Editing.

    JTHJ was a Never Ending Torture Devoid of Any Really LOL Humorous Sequence and the Worst Part is,
    Even the Romantic, Emotional Portions were Not Connecting.

    btw, Stewie Griffin… U Some1 from NG?

  27. stewie griffin 10 years ago

    dennycrane or joey whichever id u know πŸ˜€

    by the way watched sos and boy it was very entertaining..some sequences were hilarious…and ya sanju babas brothers were hilarious πŸ˜€

  28. Serenzy 10 years ago


    SOS Better than Golmaal/HF Series, Ready, BB, ATB etc.?

  29. stewie griffin 10 years ago

    ready is a salman film and i might be a bit biased though i did enjoy that film immensely and much more than bodyguard….of the rest i found sos much more entertaining than hf,golmal and atb..of course u have to overlook some scenes like the basketball scene..but for jthj even after overlooking the great battle between jesus and samar it was still boring..and if there is anything worse than a bad movie it has to be a boring movie..and sadly for jthj its super boring movie

    when talash releases it could be trouble for jthj wheras sos could still survive for a week more till khiladi comes

    • Baba Ji 10 years ago

      Talaash comes on 30 Nov which is two weeks from now. Both films would have already done major chunk of their business by then.its k786 that can eat into talaash’s BO with only one week gap.

      • Shinji 10 years ago

        What is the print count for talaash ?

        • Baba Ji 10 years ago

          talaash is releasing on 2000-2500 screens.First day should be above 14 cr. It should make 50 cr weekend atleast. and 130 cr lifetime.This is weekend record so far.

          1. Ek Tha Tiger (6 days) – 120 cr
          2. Bodyguard (5 days) – 89 cr
          3. Ra. One (5 days) – 84 cr
          4. Jab Tak Hai Jaan (6 days) – 80 cr
          5. Agneepath (4 days) – 67.5 cr
          6. Son of Sardaar (6 days) – 65 cr
          7. Dabangg – 48.5 cr
          8. Rowdy Rathore – 48 cr
          9. DON 2 – 46.5 cr
          10. Housefull 2 – 42.5 cr
          11. Ready – 40.5 cr
          12. 3 Idiots – 40 cr

          • Shinji 10 years ago

            Thanx Babaji, incredible that u remembered the question!

            I feel prints are a bit on the larger side, and compare to this it feels idiotic a masala movie like SOS only got 2000 release…

      • stewie griffin 10 years ago

        or if talaash is good then khiladi could have problems in multiplexes…don’t u think so?

  30. Aditya007 10 years ago

    So for Talaash willn’t affect Khiladi786 due to Screen Space Issue !

    1- @krishikalulla : that’s not true we have our booking done all in place for #khiladi786 [Producer of @ ErosNow]
    2- ”Exhibitors are keen not to make the mistake of signing a two-
    week deal with Aamir and Akshay’s film after the SOS and JTHJ
