Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Boy meets girl. An almost love triangle. Retrograde amnesia. Happy ending. Beautiful locales, haunting background score

Son of Sardaar: Remake of a south Indian hit. A house full of sardaars. Family feud sorted after years. Exaggerated action, frontbencher music

Five minutes into the film
Jab Tak Hai Jaan: You catch your breath. Leh can leave you speechless

Son of Sardaar: Takes you back to Daler Mehndi’s Bolo ta-ra-ra-ra days

Surprise factor
Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Neetu and Rishi Kapoor. In a vineyard. Sigh

Son of Sardaar: Salman Khan. Dance to Aaoji Bauji. ’Nuff said

Say whaa...aaat?
Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Even if you’re challenging death, why would you defuse a bomb without any protective gear?

Son of Sardaar: Tanuja attempting Punjabi. You’d fall off your seat laughing. And holding your tummy


Kind of people in the hall
Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Love story lovers, sob story lovers. Those who love happy endings

Son of Sardaar: Those who stand on their seats and dance; Poor cousins of Rohit Shetty

What you take back with you
Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Closing credits. When you see the King of Romance capturing the Badshah

Son of Sardaar: Sonakshi’s thumkas. She ought to get to talk more, you know. Really.
