  • It is the best romantic film made in this generation.

  • ...resonates an oft-repeated fact: Love stories will come and go. But no one will make them like Yash Chopra.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Yash Chopra had mentioned that this would be the last film he would direct. He has left a lasting impression with this one.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Watch Jab Tak Hai Jaan not just for the obvious sentimental reason but for the fact that it shows, for one last time, what Bollywood will miss now that the undisputed master of romantic sagas is no more.

  • ...has the stamp of the man who made some of the best romantic fare in Bollywood.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a middling effort. But then, sometimes, all we need is a Khan-song.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...may not be a flawless film but it still makes for a decent love story.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Despite its many script problems, it's a consistently watchable film that oozes with feeling and real emotion. A fitting swan song.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...watch Jab Tak Hai Jaan for Shah Rukh, who can still convey love and passion in a fleeting look or a dimpled smile; and for Yash Chopra who gave us some of the most enduring romances of all times.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • You may chaff at the exaggerated sentiments, but you sit through the film, completely involved in the story. Despite the flaws, the film is recommended for Yash Chopra’s magic.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is too tangled to transport you. At almost 180 minutes, it also requires enormous patience. But I recommend that you see it. Because only Yash Chopra could make heartache so attractive and ennobling that his characters wear it like a badge of honor.

    Critic rating (?)

  • You may not be completely satisfied this time, but there are several super moments which leave a lasting impact.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The most personal of Yash Chopra’s films, this is an elegy to love.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...fun first half; emotional despite its numerous flaws; and the ending did have me on edge; but … overly long and dull second half; incongruous casting; disappointing music.

    54

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is nothing more than lovely fluff that could have been shorter, snappier but is definitely worth watching once for the man whose name appears against the bright blue sky – Mr Yash Chopra.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...what the title manages to say pithily takes the fllm nearly three very long hours, and the pay-off isn’t as sweet as it should have been.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...may not be his finest, but even here we are treated to his willingness to tinker and update his own previous work and beliefs in the telling of his concluding romance.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a romance that does woo you at times you least expect it. But for most parts it doesn't let you forget that it is after all a film.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • As a Yashji film, it completely misses the point. Where is the romance, the tension, the brooding, the reverberance, the poetry?

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • We’d rather not point out more flaws in Yash Chopra’s swansong. Instead, let’s celebrate what has been a singularly important career.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • It is perhaps a testament to Yash Chopra that he shepherds us past this material without making it look entirely ludicrous. Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a sturdy instruction manual on how to handle melodrama in the classiest possible fashion.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Way too old-fashioned for comfort, riddled with absurd twists: it's abrupt, hurried and awkward.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • It is strikingly out of tune with the age, and real emotions. Even seen as a film about extreme characters, there is no originality in the story or its treatment to make it timeless.
