Jab Tak Hai Jaan Runtime – Almost 3 hours

Katrina, SRK still from JTHJ

JTHJ Runtime is close to 3 hours

Yash Chopra’s last film Jab Tak Hai Jaan, has been passed by the censor board, without any cuts. The film has received a U/A certificate.

The runtime has also been revealed.

  • 1st half – 1 hour 28 minutes
  • 2nd half – 1 hour 29 minutes
  • Total – 2 hour 57 minutes

Runtime of 3 hours would mean, lesser shows at multiplexes and lower opening day figures. It’s good news for the single screen audience though, who prefer longer films (anything less than 2 and a half hours is not considered to be ‘paisa vasool’.

What do you think of the Jab Tak Hai Jaan runtime? Too long? Perfect for an Yash Chopra Romance? Tell us in the comments section below.



  • In my honest opinion.. it’s a little too long for today’s audience. Also lesser shows at plexes. Opening day and weekend records out of reach now.

  • i dont mind watching film 3 hrs..lik lagaan but thing story shd be captivating to stay in cinema hall..hope movie do hav bit of comedy for audience 2 relax

  • Veer-zara was 192 min long n was the highest grosser movie of that year,real cinema lovers will definitly love dis

  • watching jodha akbar in theatre is really painfull evn though performances r gud still it is too long to be in theatres!

  • Lagan was almost four hour as weel as gadhar was more than 3… If content is not good than it can break all heart…. Srk kabhi record k liye movie nahi banata…….

  • And best actore award will go to srk for this movie, he looks very great in song ishq sava…… And all song are fantastic… View more than 40 lacs by on youtube……

  • cant anything about audience.. they make copycat or lifted scene film lik barfi to become superhit…but still 3 hrs too long if barfi become superhit why not jthj

  • JTHJ will be least effected but alternatively SOS will get lesser no. of shows at plexes to ensure more no of shows to JTHJ (managers of plexes have enough mind to give more space to legendary yash chopra’s masterpiece)

  • Its yash chopra’s movie,people want to see yash chopra’s magic for last time,so its length wouldn’t matter

  • 3hrs way too long esp romantic movie if it is path breakin lik lagaan or 3 idiots but no chance romantic candy floss

  • If u want srk to break record then ask ajay to postpone and then i assure u that JTHJ will definitely break d record of ett….if not on 1st day then definitely on 2nd day or 3rd day…. bcoz u respected sallu fans are forgetting that ett got 3300 screens but JTHJ can get maxm 2500 screens at best case scenario….then how can u talk about breaking records…

  • Leave srk, even if akshay gets 3200 screens for his eid release ouatim2 it will easily cross 30 cr…so records are just dependent on d conditions and release size….so it will be shamefull to talk about jthj breaking opening records as there is no fair comparison

  • 3 idiots also 3 hour long movie
    and record collection at plexes wid repeat value then y not Jab Tak Hai Jaan !! people love to watch good romantic movies n 3 hours very good :)

  • This is the real filling of an hestotic romance king of Bollywood to say to audience what he want say to audience the great director of Bollywood who gave his 50 unprice year to Bollywood and for the audience his is real director who know what’s audience choice I really salute mr yash chopra coze I can’t say him late sorry coze I had and now and ever love his movie thanks

  • Almost all ATBB movies runtime are more or less close to 3 hours.

    Maine Pyaar Kiya
    Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
    Kuch Kuch Hota Hain
    Raja Hindustani
    Gadar Ek Prem Katha
    3 Idiots
    and now
    Jab Tak Hain Jaan.

    Best of Luck SRK.Sure ATBB.

  • 3 hours of JTHJ is a bit too lengthy. I hope its not another “Jodha Akbar” even though acting of all stars was good in that movie.For a movie to last that long hours, the content should be very very good,irrespective of the acting.3 Idiots was socially very good in its content with a strong message also. But JTHJ does not carry that kind of message. so it should be very very different in terms of a Yash Raj movie to last that long hours. But one must also not forget JTHJ will be having a huge sympathy factor and it might beat the other movies. But still nothing can be predicted.
    I just hope both movies releasing on Diwali should do good buisness.
    Movies should be good even if they do not break other movies records. Cant understand why so much fuss about breaking other star’s record.

  • Oh thank god its 3 hrs.. now my opening day record for ett will be safe… but don’t know how will i stop JTHJ from grossing over 200 crores at the box office.. its simply unstoppable at the moment… sos is also fading away day by day.. god help me.
