The movie [Jab Tak Hai Jaan] was a terrible disappointment. Three hours wasted. Add another hour for the formalities in the multiplex and the intermission.
At my age I shouldn’t expect anything great from Bollywood, I know. But I wanted to enjoy my Diwali break with my wife who loves movies. Even she felt bored. May Yash Chopra Rest In Peace.
It’s an ancient story told in the most boring way possible, except for the bikini shot of Anushka in the beginning, and the skimpy dress that both Katrina Kaif and Anushka are asked to wear in quite many places. Add Anushka’s Delhi spirit, and you have the salt and pepper.
Delhi spirit means superficiality at its best. Confidence at its best too. Yash ji was merciful enough to give some depth to Anushka’s character for the sake of the movie. I think the movie would have been far better if the real Delhi spirit was explored. But Bollywood is not interested in any spirit, except the commercial one.
What Anushka’s character says in the movie about the contemporary young generation is quite true, however. That’s the only worthwhile thing I found in the entire movie. For the rest, it is balderdash. Accidents and loss of memory and such rubbish. Don’t spend your money and time is my recommendation.
