5 reasons to watch Jab Tak Hai Jaan tomorrow

It’s been a long journey and we’ve covered it all here on Indicine. Right from the rumoured title ‘London Ishq‘ to the poster on the front page of Times Of India that finally revealed the title of ‘SRK’s next’ as Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The tremendous excitement the trailer generated, to the song promos and music. First look, movie stills, runtime.. we have published more than 100 articles on the film here!

On September 27th, the director of the film, the legendary Yash Chopra celebrated his 80th birthday. He spoke about his journey, right from the inception of Yashraj Films to Jab Tak Hai Jaan, which he announced on the same day as his last film.

Amidst all the celebrations and excitement as the film’s release date got closer, Chopra tragically passed away on October 21st.

The makers have organised a grand premiere to celebrate Chopra’s life and his last film, which finally releases in theatres tomorrow.

Below are 5 reasons to watch Jab Tak Hai Jaan first day first show (if you manage to get tickets)!

SRK with Katrina Kaif - Jab Tak Hai Jaan

SRK Katrina Kaif – Jab Tak Hai Jaan

  • Yash Chopra Romance, one last time: A 60 year long journey comes to an end with the release of Jab Tak Hai Jaan. While his classics will be watched and loved for years to come, this is the last time you’ll get to watch an Yash Chopra film in theatres.
  • Shahrukh Khan: His first release of 2012 and the last too. There was a time, not too long ago, when SRK would have 3 releases every year. Now, it’s reduced to one, sometimes two. For fans around the world, an SRK film is a festival.
  • Katrina Kaif: She is the most popular actress in the country. Period. While her star power has rarely been tested (due to the presence of male superstars), almost all her films have opened well, even smaller releases like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Also, it would be fun to watch Katrina as a Yash Chopra heroine. From the promos, she is looking gorgeous!
  • Story: Yashji has always experimented with his characters and story line, Darr and Lamhe are two examples. Jab Tak Hai Jaan promises to be different. It’s unlikely to be a run-of-the-mill love triangle.
  • The entire cast and crew: The absolute best in the industry are coming together – Yashraj Films (top production house), Yash Chopra (director), Aditya Chopra (story), Shahrukh Khan (lead star), A R Rahman (music), Gulzar (lyrics), Anil Mehta (cinematography) – all legends of Indian cinema. Apart from Katrina and Anushka Sharma, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh and Anupam Kher have special appearances too.

Those are our reasons to watch Jab Tak Hai Jaan tomorrow. What are yours? Tell us in the comments section below.



  • I was lucky to catch a advance preview screening of Jab Tak Hai Jaan.I have watched many ‘Indian’ movies for the last 35 years or so and this must rate as one of the best Indian movies ever. I’ve listened to the songs before i’ve even heard of which movie it originated from and absolutely had goose-bumps watching the movie and hearing the songs which I had already considered my all-time favorites! I have never come across any other movie which had so many romantic melodies in one. The climax to the movie was totally unexpected which is different from so many of the mainstream ‘Indian’ movies where the ending is totally predictable.Shahrukh Khan has once again proved why he is called the King of Bollywood!

    This movie was truly great and very romantic.It was pretty enjoyable from beginning to end.This is one of the best movies ever from Yash Raj films,a total quality movie all the way.The direction by Yash Chopra was truly excellent.The screenplay is commendable.This music was very nice my favorite one being Ishq Shava and Heer.The other tracks like Saans,Jab Tak Hai Jaan,Jiya Re were also excellent. This movie is beautifully shot with rich sets and costumes..The scenes are well executed.The acting was top-notch. SRK was superb in his role and was quite convincing.In my opinion Katrina has given her best performance in this movie. Anushka was just perfect in her role.

    Yash Chopra has given us one of his best films till date,may his soul rest in peace.Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a powerful and beautiful movie and a must see. 10/10
