Friday WatchAlong: Jab Tak Hai Jaan! 3pm Chicago Time! Snow and Churches and Everything CHRISTMAS!!!!

Woo-hoo! Friday WatchAlong!!! Grandpa’s family funeral weekend, and yet I am maintaining normalcy! Also, I’m pumped to watch this movie with y’all.

Gonna let Grandpa introduce it with his review (he asked for Indian movies to watch so he could understand my interests):

Jab Tak Hai Jaan   Obviously a Bollywood production. Well done and a good love story mixed with some moderate action. The hero by working hard goes from part time jobs to owning and operating a successful restaurant. His love interest who is engaged to another takes a church vow of separation if his life will be saved after an accident. He goes off to Afghanistan and a dangerous position in the army. There another girl is involved. It is a good story and the scenes as filmed were interesting and sometimes spectacular. The two ladies were good actors and surprising to me very good dancers. As is usual in these films all of a sudden there are a whole bunch of people doing a elaborate dance routine. It was two minutes short of three hours and I view it all in one sitting.

Let’s see if we can be as good as Grandpa and view it all in one sitting! At 3pm Chicago time, I will put up an “and PLAY” comment on this post and we will all comment along together from there. Yaaaaaay!

  1. “wait for your time” is a great message, and I would love the idea of an older couple who finally get engaged after years apart. But only if THEY WERE APART FOR A REASON!!!

  2. I’ve been happily married for 14 years now – fairly certain a bomb would keep my husband from coming back to me, especially since someone has to watch the kids. That romantic intensity is um, hard to maintain with children. And actually hard to swallow, in general. Lovers parting isn’t half as traumatic as a childhood injury.

  3. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Yashji!!!! If you don’t remember, he died during filming this. So they turned the love song into a tribute to him, his love for SRK, his love for film, his son’s love for Yashji (since he put this song together), and now we all CRY!

  4. Oh drat, I missed it – Saturday morning with much to do.

    I hope your Grandad get’s a good send off this weekend and you have a great celebration of his life.

  5. Wasn’t able to join in but I’m going to go back and read the comments. I won’t need to watch because I will know what every frustrated and sarcastic comment will be referring to. 🙂
    Srk was so yummy, some of his scenes are superb, but the rest is a disaster.
    The film is such a wasted opportunity!

    • We had two people who hadn’t seen it before! So they were going along all “oh, this is nice, I see, first love but then better love later in life and…AMNESIA?????” Great fun to read. And we tried to warn them!
