Major Samar Anand meticulously defuses terrorist bombs without using body armor. Why does this man have a death wish? Since he's Shah Rukh Khan, the answer has to be a woman. After a hiatus during which he tries to convince us he would be just as good as a superhero, a gangster or a mentally handicapped activist, SRK returns to his strength as the King of Romance. Jab Tak Hai Jaan is the final film directed by Bollywood legend Yash Chopra (who died only a few weeks ago), to whom SRK owes much of his global fame, and it is a satisfying return to form. Paired with it-girl Katrina Kaif, he kisses his leading lady for the first time in a 20-year film career. Is it my imagination, or is there a spark missing? He never had to kiss Kajol, Rani, Juhi or Priety to convince us he was mad about them.
