A film that has crossed all barriers to excitement and euphoria in recent times, a film that coalesces geniuses, a film that is awaiting a path breaking release this November finally has a name. After much of speculations, permutations and combinations happening among fanatics each day with the net result being zero, there were enough reasons for them to cheer tonight.
A tweet from the Badshah of Bollywood who revolutionizes romance in the Indian film fraternity and is popularly tagged as the ‘Best B-town romantic hero’ set the temperatures soaring, eyeballs losing their capacity to blink as the news could come anytime soon! It did and how! Adorning a full page of a leading news daily today morning, Yash Raj Films released a full length poster featuring SRK, Katrina and Anushka who play pivotal roles in the film. Much to everyone’s astonishment, the name zeroed upon is ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and not a ‘London Ishq’, a ‘Yeh Kahaan aa Gaye Hum’ or a ‘Jai’ as per the rumoured speculations that were doing the rounds ever since its announcement!
A week back while the film maker was busy shooting for his film in Kashmir, it was also reported that the title has been selected and its called ‘Yaara Silli Silli’ but then again, Yash Raj’s head honcho Yash Chopra has given his eight year long hiatus a great gravitas rubbishing and putting all rumours to rest.
The title might be reminiscent of the epic song from Sholay featuring Bollywood’s Basanti Hema Malini and Gabbar Singh, but then again, with the poster comes an added message which gives an insight into what the film really has in store for his fans. Not just a romantic story, this film is an EPIC romantic saga woven by the prolific film maker who has spent 50 years in the industry and laced with songs by music maestro A.R.Rahman, embellished with words from one-of-a-kind lyricist Gulzar saab!
As per reports , the film is segregated into two halves, one where Shah Rukh is a carefree musician while he is a strong and stout army officer in the next! Similarly, the message that has been released along with the poster spans over two emotions, one of happiness and love and the other of remorse and disappointment.
The exact words go like this:
“Teri aankhon ki namkeen mastiyan,
Teri hansi ki beparwah gustakhiyan,
Teri zulfon ki lehraati angdaiyaan,
Nahin bhoolunga main,
Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
Tera haath se haath chodna,
Tera saayon ka rukh modna,
Tera palat kar phir na dekhna,
Nahi maaf karunga main,
Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Jab Tak Hai Jaan”
With lines so effervescent and a star cast that spells Power, Jab Tak hai Jaan is already grabbing tabloid headlines as it brings together the much reputed jodi of Yash Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan. Yashji who considers family had even stated that when he does a film, it is obvious that the film will be with Shah Rukh in the lead! ‘JTHJ’ also marks the inception of a duo as refreshing as Katrina and Shah rukh. Knowing of their off screen rapport, one is expecting fire crackers from the duo with this one. Add to it, the bubbliness and the casually chic yet smashing Anushka Sharma’s vibrancy and innocent charm! There you have a concoction of all the factors needed to make a good film. And ‘JTHJ’ bangs on all of them, stamping itself as one of the most hugely anticipated films of the eyar as the 46 year old actor returns to the silver screen almost a year post his ‘Don2′ and this being the only release of SRK over the year, an earth shattering response is welcomed this Diwali at the box office! The film’ teaser was released along with YRF’s magnum opus ‘Ek Tha tiger’ and the trailer is slated to release this September 27 when Yashji celebrates his 80th birthday in pure style and grandeur!
