Legendary director Yash Chopra’s last venture is an epic love story spanning across a decade. Borrowing intermittently from some of his other films, I found Jab Tak Hai Jaan generally likable despite its slow pace and some very patchy & almost absurd writing, especially in the second half. SRK is wonderfully controlled, Katrina’s character loses steam in the second half while Anushka grew on me as the film went on. The music was a bit patchy but the movie’s absolutely gorgeously shot. At 3 hours running time, it tests your patience but if you’re willing to sit it out, it rewards you with a slow but pleasant enough film.
My score: 6 on 10
