Have you all watched Jab Tak Hai Jaan? Well i did in November and i still can't get over the fact it received better critical reception than Talaash from some critics as well as movie goers. Well i gathered these five important reasons why i believe JTHJ sucked! I have really admired Yash Raj movies over the years and some are really one of my all time favorites but JTHJ honestly seemed to have missed it by a long shot.
1. LAME SCRIPT:
Seriously what's up with the script? It was like too pat and puerile. You get hit on your head, then you again get hit on the head, that time i really wished 'one more hit and kill that man please so that i can go out'. And his girlfriend leaves him because she thought Sir Jesus was trying to kill him. What? I have seen way worse bollywood movies but i never expected something like this from Yash Raj, especially when its his last.
2. WOODEN ACTING:
The movie stars Katerina Kaif. Enough said.
3. USELESS DANCE NUMBER:
I liked that dance number but not in the movie. It was useless and no way helped the movie and made me feel like the movie was dragging slowly and slowly and not towards something good. And so many songs! And they were all not that great.
4. SUPER LAME EDITING:
175 Minutes! Couldn't they find an editor? Give it to me, i could have done it better and for free if i knew movie was such a torture!
5. NEGLIGIBLE ONSCREEN PRESENCE OF SOME ACTORS:
Anupam Kher, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh! Couldn't they give some more time to these brilliant actors on the screen? And Anupam Kher i thought was there only for like 1 minute. WTH?
But after the movie ended i did not feel completely cheated because something in the movie definitely stuck in my mind that i liked that saved the movie from being a total disaster.
So what saved the movie?
1. ANUSHKA SHARMA:
This marvelous, vivacious and sexy actress has got all what she needs to go to the top. I know she was there for less time than Katerina Kaif but her spirited acting and charm completely overshadowed Katerina. It was sheer delight to watch her! Give her the best supporting actress award hands down!
