Editorial Reviews

Jab We Met (English: When We Met) is a 2007 Hindi romantic comedy film directed and written by Imtiaz Ali. The film, produced by Dhillin Mehta under Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd, stars Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor in their fourth film together with Dara Singh, Pawan Malhotra and Saumya Tandon in supporting roles. The film tells the story of a feisty Punjabi girl who is sent off track when she bumps into a depressed Mumbai businessman on an overnight train to Delhi. While attempting to get him back on board when he alights at a station stop, both are left stranded in the middle of nowhere. Having walked out of his corporate business after being dumped by his girlfriend, the man has no destination in mind, until the girl forces him to accompany her back home and then on to elope with her secret boyfriend. Released in the U.K., a day before its worldwide release of 26 October 2007, the film became a hit at the Indian box office as well as overseas.

JAB WE MET became one of the biggest hits in Bollywood cinema in 2007, and it's quite easy to see why. This is a very watchable romantic comedy and the two leads, Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, dazzle in this, their best acting performances yet. After having seen this one just now, and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (2DISC SET) recently, I am this close to buying a train ticket to wherever. There've been other cinematic romances on the rails, yeah, but surely they couldn't have been more fun than the time spent on and off the tracks by Aditya and Geet in JAB WE MET.

Aditya (Shahid Kapoor) hasn't had a good time of it of late. His father had passed away a year ago, leaving him the reins to his corporate empire. But now business is on the skids. Too, the girl he loves has just gotten married. Despondent beyond belief, Aditya just simply wanders away. He somehow ends up on a train, and this is where he runs into Geet (Kareena Kapoor), who will change his life. Geet is a cute Punjabi girl who just will not stop talking. She exudes this vitality and exuberance which at first grates on Aditya's nerves; he actually implores her to leave him alone. But she keeps talking.

So it sucks for Aditya that, when he dispiritedly disembarks from the train, the girl follows him (to tell him the train is leaving) and is herself stranded. Aditya is left with no choice but to do the right thing, which is to escort Geet to her Punjabi home, from where, she cheerfully tells him, she plans to promptly run away and elope with her boyfriend (some guy named Anshuman). Aditya's irritation at Geet gradually turns to affection and then to something more.

Well she didn't miss the train this time. Jab We Met fell into my lap from Amazon ad and I proceeded to read online reviews which had something to the effect of:
- boy meets girl
- boy helps "damsel in distress"
- boy takes girl home
- family mistakes him for her finance
- boy and girl try to prove them wrong
- finally boy and girl realize they are in love and the rest as they say "is history"

If you're familiar with Bollywood productions, I bet you can name quite a few movies with the same premise of which Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke is one. Maybe then you can relate with my initial cynicism about Jab We Met. But I got to see the movie, and I was smitten then I got hooked and the rest again "is history".

Okay so I'll try to move into the movie review. Well "Jab We Met" does have the above mentioned plot to it and seriously there's nothing original or suspenseful about it. You know where the story is going 15mins into the movie, but what keeps you glued to your seat really is how we get to the "last train stop". And yes, metaphorically, catching trains is the theme of this movie; a shade of meaning for not missing out on love.

Here it is: Aditya Kashyap (Shahid Kapoor) is a very rich young man who has just inherited his father's shares in a large Indian corporation. A number of things missing in his life (can't say coz u won't have fun watching the movie) cause him to walk out on a very important boardroom meeting. He mindlessly roams the streets and eventually gets on a train. In comes Miss Motormouth aka Geet (Kareena Kapoor). She just can't seem to shut up. She even talks about shoe-shopping in her sleep! One thing leads to the other and Aditya gets stuck with Geet and he has to take her home.

Playback singing in Jab We Met is superb. The female vocalist in the Ye Ishq Hai is wonderful. The background score is marvelous and unobtrusive with some occasional virtuoso flute music. The middle of the movie is a great song and dance fest that actually flows with the movie and seems completely unspoiled by western influence. It's difficult for us to stay in our chairs during Nagada Nagada and you know what? We don't.

The screen play is clever and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny both in what is said and what is seen. Directing and acting combine to produce many delightful scenes. You must be able to keep up completely with the subtitles, the expressions on the actor's faces and the flow of the story to fully appreciate the high quality of this film. There are no cheesy moments and no unnecessary scenes. There are no thunderclaps or lighting bolts to provide emphasis. There is no slap-stick, there is no silliness and there are no negatives.

Kareena turns in a performance that (in my opinion) is on par with Rani in the movie Black. Shahid is right there with just the right expressions on his face. A very good film.

"Jab We Met" was a delightful bollywood, heartfelt and entertaining. As a viewer only recently discovering the joys of bollywood films, I am learning the differences each film has to offer. In this film, as with most, music plays a key role; however, in "Jab We Met" the music is more of a background player, with less choreographed dance numbers. This allows the acting, story line, and especially the character development to shine through.
Kareena Kapoor does a fabulous job as Geet, an outspoken, independent, and spontaneous girl. The journey her character takes, and the breadth of her acting through was the highlight of the film in my eyes.
This film is a shining example of what a romantic comedy should be, and demonstrates what American Rom-Coms are lacking.
