‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ ~ Diwali Release starring Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif and Anoushka Sharma ~What a Loooooooooong Movie ! We began seeing it just past 10 pm ,Wednesday Night,November 14,2012 at Inox at Nariman Point on Hindu New Year Night a few hours earlier and the Movie ended at 1.30 am on Thursday early morning ,November 15,2012!
It’s a Movie on Love and has quite a few sob moments ~ The Film is shot in London,Kashmir and Ladakh ~ Interestingly Shah Rukh Khan had never been to Kashmir in his Life as a choice before this ! Seems his Grandfather had told him to see at least three places in the World ~ Istanbul,Rome and Kashmir and that while he could go on his own to the others,he would show or rather show off Kashmir to him ~ he passed away before he could do so and SRK had deliberately not gone to Kashmir all these years in deference to his grandfather and had never accompanied his wife or children when they went holidaying there ~ However he gave in to Yash Raj to show him Kashmir while shooting this film there as he considered him a father figure
There are some mellow lovey dovey utterances ” Hur Ishq ka koi waqt hota hai…aur joh abhi waqt naa hoh,iska yeh matlab nahi ki Ishq nahi hai…aur jab waqt aataa hai toh khuda bhi ishq ko nahi rok sakta toh waqt kya cheez hai !”…this flowed from Rishi Kapoor who plays a cute cameo couple role with real life life partner,Neetu Singh Kapoor, when asked by Katrina how he could havewaited for her mom for Eight Years with firm belief that she will come to him and become his companion for the rest of her life despite being married and with a child ~ Neetu Singh too says a classic to Katrina to explain why she left her husband and Katrina’s father for Rishi Kapoor ” Joh khud Khush nahi hota woh doosroh koh kabhi khushi nahi dey sakta”
Kashmir and Ladakh Locales are heavenly ~ we had our Honeymoon in Kashmir and we complete 25 years next year and the demand and sentiment is strong to relive Kashmir next year !
Katrina is simply sizzling hot in the dance Number and the rhythm wants you to get up and dance in the aisles ! ~ thought SRK is a bit aged for this role but as the bubbly young modern generation Anoushka tells him that in her generation she will never find a man like him…..
The Movie opens with Anoushka ,to win a bet,in just a bare bikini diving of a rock in the middle of the Lake in Ladakh into freezing waters only to be rescued from certain death by SRK who essays the role of Major Samar Anand ,a legendary Bomb Defuser in the Indian Army
