Ultimately Jab Tak Hai Jaan is nothing more than lovely fluff that could have been shorter, snappier but is definitely worth watching once for the man whose name appears against the bright blue sky – Mr Yash Chopra.

But then, sometimes, all we need is a Khan-song.

This film has all the elements you would want in a Yash Chopra film - gorgeously shot locations in the UK and Kashmir
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times 
Vintage Yash Chopra film that proves cinema is worth loving
Rachit Gupta, FilmFare
Jab Tak Hai Jaan', Yash Chopra's last directorial venture had created ample pre-release buzz and the anticipation in the theatre was palpable. 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' is yet another impossible love story made believable by the conviction of the makers.
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
But it just doesn't work that way. It shouldn't have to.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
Surprisingly, one aspect of Jab Tak Hai Jaan that isn’t quite up to scratch is the musical score. The AR Rahman-Gulzar combo that never fails to yield a cracker isn’t quite in its elements here. The love ditties sound nice while they play on the screen, b

The heroine’s sense of spirituality is problematic. If she were a simple girl in some rural spot then her constant and rather child-like dialogue with Jesus would have been more credible. Dialogues with the Maker have been features of previous Aditya Chop

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is poetry on celluloid. It is a movie marvel. It is a piece of cinematic history. It is a blockbuster… sorry, a super blockbuster. It will have a long and meritorious run in the multiplexes and cinemas.

"If I kiss you, will you slap me?" asks the hero of the heroine at a subway station. Then before the latter could answer, he says with a smile, "I don't think so" and proceeds to kiss her. (Really? Is that what we expect from a Yash Chopra hero?)

The basic premise of 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', though a little too far fetched, does manage to keep you keep you engaged till the first half at least. Yes, it does taken an entire one and a half hour to actually come to the point where the film's title is established and the conflict brought to the fore as well. However the journey taken till then follows a leisurely pace and while one wonders whether Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif would indeed meet, the wait is a rather long one to see the route that the second half takes to reach the (expected) point.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan makes life look easy. So easy that a self proclaimed 25-year-old, who looks 40, gets to kiss a girl who seems to have walked out of Vogue.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a film that has all the ingredients you expect in a Yash Chopra film but somehow, it does not work out this time. The film is way too long, painfully slow at times and the magic is missing between SRK and Katrina. Anushka is excellent

Jab Tak Hai Jaan may not be a flawless film but it still makes for a decent love story. Yash Chopra may have gone but he left romance in his works that shall be cherished forever; the man shall live forever!
