Jab Tak Hai Jaan, was a movie that broke religious norms. Why, you ask? Well, just because Katrina's character in the movie has a relationship with "God", which results in Shahrukh Khan proclaiming Jesus his enemy and declaring war on him.
Samar (Shahrukh Khan) is a beggar-cum-fish seller-cum-janitor in London (how did he get the visa without a proper job anyways?), who sings in Rabbi Shergill's voice. During one such impersonation, he meets Meera. And then once again, in a rather shady alley where Meera is shown to be smoking. They don't specify, smoking what.
Meera tells Samar she is about to get married to a man of her father's choice, and she has made peace with it. But before she is married off to that random rich dude, she wants to sing for her dad, because, you know, he'll be lonely once she is married off. Apparently, even with all the riches that Meera has, she can't afford a proper music teacher for herself, so she asks this jobless hippie to teach her to sing and play the guitar. Looks like Rabbi's impersonation worked.
So, they begin their classes together, and slowly fall in love, but then Meera controls herself, 'coz, you know, limits and shit. But later, after a ridiculously choreographed 'street' dance together, Meera and Samar kiss. Whats with Katrina kissing on stations anyways? She did it again in Dhoom 3.
After some to and fro movement, which is too random for me to list down here, they finally have a relationship going. But, Meera had promised God that she won't make out with Samar, and she obviously broke that promise, so, Jesus punishes Samar, by hitting him with a car. Samar survives this. But Meera gets too scared after this, and breaks up with Samar. Samar somehow concludes all this happened because of God, and dares Him to kill him.
Samar comes back to India and soon becomes a Captain in the Indian Army. Screw you, admission process! He becomes an expert in bomb diffusion, and risks his life everyday, in order to challenge God. Really, they could have just settled it with a dance off.
Fast forward 10 years.
He bumps into Akira (Anushka Sharma, even more annoying than usual), who plays a Discovery Channel intern. Akira is a nosy, and curious little creature, who falls for Samar almost instantaneously, after reading his diary, and knowing about his past fling with Meera, and his ongoing battle with God.
So, she calls him to London again (how convenient), so that he can shoot for her documentary. There he meets with an accident (again) and loses his memory of the past 10 years. Inexplicably, the doctors decide that the best way for him to get his memory back would be if he is lied to, and manipulated by his friends, and ex girlfriend. But then, soon his memory comes back, and he manipulates them. A few dramatic scenes later, he and Meera are reunited. And God plays the 'good friend' bit.
The music of the film is good, but the lyrics are a little weird. Sample this- â€œSaans me teri saans mili toh, mujhe saans aayi,mujhe saans aayi, mujhe saans aayiâ€, which roughly translates to- If your breath mixes with my breath, then I get breath, I get breath, and I get breath.
Watch it if you are into blasphemy.
