Mohabbat Karunga Main, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Jab Tak Hai Jaan….The king of Romance Shahrukh Khan is back with the most-awaited Bollywood flick Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan has also brought together the award winning pair of legendary singer and composer A R Rahman along with the lyricist Gulzar, who has created melodious music for this romantic film and many more with the unforgettable Yash Chopra.
Yash Chopra directed this film which is written and produced by Aditya Chopra under their production banner Yash Raj Films; the film features King Khan with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma performing lead roles while other supporting cast includes Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh and Anupum Kher etc. It is worth mentioning that Jab Tak Hai Jaan is Yash Chopra’s last directorial venture before his demise on October 21, 2012, just three weeks before the release of the Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
The story revolves around an Indian Officer Captain Samar (Shahrukh Khan) who is on a mission in Kashmir where he meets an oh-so-pretty belly dancer Meera (Katrina Kaif) and fell in love with her at first sight. But unfortunately Meera gives her tough time for the fact that she wanted her dream prince to be a sleek and handsome looking gentle man instead of a rough looking stud. The tough guy could not bear this ignorance and shed his camouflage uniform and moves to London after Meera.
Following her ladylove, Shahrukh wander into the streets doing odd jobs and playing guitar. Luckily Kate comes across him and did not realize that she has met him before anywhere in the world… Let’s not forget the very beautiful Anushka Sharma’s role in the film where she plays Akira, not Muskaan as previously promoted. The story of the central character Samar will be narrated through the eyes of Akira and the documentary projected in the film is called “The Man Who Cannot Die”. “Hi. I am Akira in Jab Tak Hai Jaan. In the film, I work for the Discovery Channel. And I am on an expedition to discover the truth behind the compelling story of the documentary,” said the stunning Anushka Sharma on the release of her character in the movie.
The soundtrack of Jab Tak Hai Jaan begins with Challa, a song that has received mixed response ever since its first glimpse has been released. Where Rabbi Shergill’s voice looks a bit uncomfortable wile Shahrukh Khan lip-synching on him. No doubt, the music is indeed very catchy and peppy but the peculiar singing style of Rabbi does take ample time to digest. The way another song ‘Saans‘ begins, listener is taken into extremely slow pace and Shreya Ghoshal required taking her own time stressing on ‘saans’ before coming to the point. By the time ‘Ishq Shava‘ arrives, this Raghav Mathur and Shilpa Rao number is hardly that and could have been a part of just any film. Just when one thought that Jab Tak Ha0i Jaan wasn’t quite an album that one expected it to be arrives ‘Heer’ which is a beautiful composition by legendary AR Rahman. The title song Jab Tak Hai Jaan begins in the vocals of Javed Ali and while the start is slow, there is a rhythmic flow that it acquires as it proceeds.
Another Punjabi number, it has Harshdeep Kaur doing quite well in this happy-sad creation which has a sweet folk flavor to it. This is the song which has the capacity rule the music charts and get successful at the box office. The dance number ‘Jiya Re’ which is for Anushka Sharma and Ishq Dance still can’t be said with utmost certainty that it would turn out to be a chartbuster in the offering. Jab Tak hai jaan is expected to release on 13 November 2012 worldwide.
