Review for Jab Tak Hai Jaan NR Drama/Romance 3:00
by  John Thielking

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a blockbuster Bollywood drama/romance/musical movie by a famous (recently deceased) director that chronicles the developments in the lives of two women who are in love with a man who is defusing bombs for the Indian Army. At first, everything seems like a normal romance where a man and a woman make a deal that if the man teaches the woman to sing a Punjabi song she will teach him conversational English. The woman has the unfortunate habit of making deals with God to get what she wants in life. One time, after a tragic accident, she makes a deal with God that if her Beau survives she will give up seeing him forever. After hearing of this deal, her Beau decides to put the pact between her and God to the test by joining the Indian Army to defuse bombs while not wearing a protective vest.   At the end of the movie there is a tribute to the deceased director. In Hindi or something with English subtitles. Four stars.

This movie ranks as being nonviolent because there are only 16 violent scenes in almost 3 hours. These include: A man defuses a bomb about 6 times, a woman is drowning, a woman throws a drink in a man's face, a man drops a glass, a man gets hit by a car, there is a brief battle scene where there are 4 explosions, a bomb goes off (twice), a ball breaks a camera, a man gets hit by a car a second time and there is a story of an accident.  There is some smoking in this movie.

The previews include: a violent commercial and a nonviolent preview for Mere Dad Merratti.
