Shah Rukh Khan as Samar Anand continues his charm of romantic roles and wooing girls who are already engaged. Samar Anand is a smalltime labour in London and Meera (Katrina Kaif) belongs to a millionaire family. They fall in love with each other and when everything seems to be going in favor of them, an accident separates the lovers. After many years, a documentary filmmaker Akira (Anushka Sharma) meets Samar, who is now a bomb-squad officer and also falls in love with him. When Samar comes to London for helping Akira, another accident changes his life.
The first half of the movie is all about love and romance between SRK and Katrina, filled with songs at regular intervals. Second half of the movie starts with amazing performance by Anushka as modern generation girl. Her performance keeps the audience involved in the movie.
Shah Rukh as always lives up to expectations as a romantic hero. His charm in the first half wins hearts of every girl. Katrina also tried to impress audience with her romantic avtaar and succeeded in her attempt also. Anushka's charm wins heart of audience and her acting can be rated as best in the movie.
The film's structure is like Yash Chopra's earlier movie Veer-Zaara, where the lovers remain separated for many years, didn't get married and then another woman helps in bringing them together. This Yash Chopra's love story is essentially desi at heart with some advancement.
On the whole, first half of the movie is bit stretched and sometimes can make you bore due to regular inclusion of songs, but second half keeps audience involved due to good story. We give Jab Tak Hai Jaan 3.9+ stars out of 5.
