And, though she is a far from objective source when it comes to Shahrukh Khan, here is Anupama Chopra's review of the film:
In what world would a beautiful, fabulously rich girl who cruises around London in a chauffer-driven Bentley fall in love with a waiter? In Yash Chopra's world, of course!
It helps enormously that the waiter is played by Shah Rukh Khan with charm turned on high-beam. In any case, you don't go to a Yash Chopra movie to delve into realism or the messiness of relationships. You go to partake in a fantasy of swooning, idealised love - and Jab Tak Hai Jaan delivers plenty of that.
Here's a video from the red carpet, if you're really curious! (Or if you have time to waste.)
And that's it for me for the week! I'm heading to Austin tomorrow and won't be back until Sunday. The following week, I'll be leaving for Brazil on Thursday and will be gone for a week.
I should have access to the Internets, so I may check in from time to time but daily news will be on hiatus while I'm on vacation. AND IT'S A MUCH NEEDED VACATION!
If you are in Austin, Brasilia, or Sao Paolo and want to say hello, do drop me a line!
