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. It is well known for introducing the concept of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl' to modern Hindi cinema.

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. The distributors of the film, Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd, announced that Jab We Met would be remade by corporate entity Moser Baer in four other Indian languages: Tamil (dubbed into Telugu), Kannada and Malayalam.[3] The Tamil remake of the film was released in 2009 as Kanden Kadhalai. The film inspired the TV show Love U Zindagi.[4]

Plot[edit]

Aditya Kashyap (Shahid Kapoor), the son of a recently deceased reputed industrialist, demoralized by his mother's affair and subsequent departure, becomes even more depressed after attending the marriage of his girlfriend. Feeling ashamed, he walks out of the wedding, boards a train at night, and appears on the verge of committing suicide. While on board, he meets Geet Dhillon (Kareena Kapoor), a lively and talkative young woman who is leaving Mumbai to go to her hometown, Bhatinda, Punjab.

Initially, Aditya finds Geet very annoying. She discloses her plans of eloping with her boyfriend Anshuman (Tarun Arora), as she fears resentment from her parents. Geet annoys Aditya to the point where he leaves the train. In trying to get him back on board, she ends up missing it and finds herself stranded on a desolate station, Badnagar, with no luggage or money. She confronts Aditya and tells him that he is now responsible for getting her safely to her house in Punjab. They begin an idyllic journey through the exuberant north Indian heartland, travelling in buses, taxis and camel-carts to reach her house. Through spending so much time with Geet, Aditya begins to feel good about life again.

On arrival, Geet's family (Pawan Malhotra, Dara Singh and Kiran Juneja) mistakes the two for lovers, but the pair quickly assures them that there is nothing of the sort. Aditya tells her family he is a musician to avoid being recognized as the famous industrialist, and her family accepts this. A few days later, Manjeet, an old childhood friend of Geet's who wants to marry her, arrives as her suitor. Geet, however, does not want to marry him. While he is there, Geet leads him to believe that there is something intimate going on between her and Aditya. Later that night, Geet runs away from her home, with Aditya, to marry Anshuman in Manali. However, Geet's sister sees them running away and informs the entire family. The two hurriedly make their escape, but this confirms the suspicion in Geet's family that they are lovers. The two escape to Manali and then part to continue on their separate ways.

Upon returning to Mumbai with a new conviction and positive outlook on life because of Geet's influence, Aditya guides his company to extreme success. Around nine months later, he launches a new product, a calling card named "Geet", as he has fallen in love with her. Geet’s family sees this launch on TV and runs to Mumbai to meet Aditya. Aditya is shocked to learn that Geet has not returned home. He takes it upon himself to find her and return her to her family. He returns to Manali, where he expects her to be with her new husband. Instead, he finds that Anshuman had turned her out and refused to marry her.

After chastising Anshuman for what he did, Aditya leaves and finally tracks Geet down in Shimla, shocked to see what she has become: a quiet, reserved, and miserable schoolteacher. Convincing her to face her circumstances, he manages to bring her back to normal life, and things start to look up for her again. However, Anshuman arrives and tries to patch up with her, claiming he realized he was a jerk. Initially, Geet does not want to accept him, but Aditya pushes her to be with him, even though he loves her. All three travel back to Bhatinda to unite Geet with her family and to announce that Geet and Anshuman are together. Upon their arrival, the family again assumes that Geet and Aditya are together and, in all the confusion, there is no chance to right the family's misconceptions. While trying to clear the confusion, Geet realizes that she is in love with Aditya, not Anshuman. She confesses her love to Aditya, and the couple gets married. Finally,it is seen they have two daughters

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Pre-production work on the film began in early 2007 when Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd announced that director Imtiaz Ali would be directing the then real life couple Shahid and Kareena Kapoor in their first "full-fledged romantic drama".[5] When Ali began casting for the film, Kareena Kapoor was the director's first choice to portray the role of Geet Dhillon whilst Shahid Kapoor was cast to play the role of Aditya Kashyap, after Ali met him and discovered the actor was more than a poster boy. On the two lead actors, Ali commented, "I wanted a girl who could look natural in scenes where she misses the train. She had to be without make-up, someone who could be hyper, talkative and interesting but not irritating. I was never a fan of her [Kareena] and hadn't seen too many of her flicks, but I just knew Kareena was perfect as Geet [...] [On the other hand], When I met him [Shahid], I realised he wasn't the forgettable actor that he comes across in several of his movies. He has gone through a lot in life and that maturity had never been brought out. He was perfect for the role of a young, mature, quiet guy."[6]

The film's shooting started on 20 March 2007 in Chandigarh, Punjab and later headed to Shimla[7] and Manali, Himachal Pradesh,[8] where the crew filmed a song on the Himalayas[9] and the Rohtang Pass.[10] Manish Malhotra served as the costume designer during the filming.[11] While shooting the last schedule of the film in Mumbai, sources had indicated that the lead pair had broken up. Though the media projected it as a publicity stunt for the film, it was later confirmed that the couple had indeed broken up.[12] The title of the film was decided by a popular vote; moviegoers had a choice between Punjab Mail, Ishq Via Bhatinda ('Love via Bhatinda') and Jab We Met.[13][14]

To promote the film, the actors appeared separately on different television shows. Kareena Kapoor appeared as guest judge on the singing talent contest Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007 whilst Shahid Kapoor appeared on Amul STAR Voice of India and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa respectively;[15][16] they later appeared together on the television show Nach Baliye.[17] Apart from this, the producers also painted two full local trains in Mumbai from the Western and Central lines with Jab We Met imagery, where Shahid Kapoor chatted up with fellow passengers and informed them about the movie.[18] On the night of 23 October 2007, a special preview of the film was organized at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai for those associated with the film and their families.[19]

Release[edit]

Reception[edit]

The film opened to positive reviews on 26 October 2007 with a fairly good opening of 70% all over India and later increased to 90% during the weekend.[20] Making a total first week net business of 11.75 crores from 350 cinemas,[21] the film went into the second week with very strong collections[22] and saw a massive increase with 40%-50% increment in shows worldwide.[23]

Continuing its strong march in week two with collections of over INR90 million (US$1.5 million) and a two-week total of INR210 million (US$3.4 million),[24] the film was declared a hit.[25] During its third week, Jab We Met managed to add another INR20 million (US$320,000) to its collections[26] but suffered a setback due to the arrival of Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya, which resulted in the number of shows for the film being reduced.[27] Due to popular demand and the poor performance of the latter, the following week saw an increase in the number of prints for the film across the country,[28][29] and resulted in a 50% increase of the film's collections.[30] Completing fifty successful days at the box office on 14 December 2007,[31] the film received a hit status by BoxOffice India[2] and continued running successfully in cinemas with greater number of shows than the much later-released, Om Shanti Om.[32]

As of February 2008, Jab We Met has made a net business of over INR300 million (US$4.9 million),[33] and has emerged as one of the biggest hits of the year.[2][34] On 30 January 2008, it was announced that to celebrate the success of its 100 days run at the box office, PVR Cinemas in Delhi would have a special screening of the film on Valentine's Day.[35]

Meanwhile, Jab We Met also opened well overseas especially in the U.K., where it was released a day before its worldwide release of 26 October. Debuting at number 10 in the U.K., the film grossed £11,488 on its previews night and £144,525 on its opening weekend, collecting a total of £156,013 from 31 screens.[36] The film continued to do strong business and garnered excellent collections during its second week, making a two-week total of £325,996.[37] Over the next five weeks, Jab We Met collected a total of £ 43,529 from 54 screens[38][39] and made a grand total of £424,681.[40]

Reviews[edit]

Upon release, the film opened to positive reviews. Critics praised the film for its simplicity, its romance, saying that it was "one of the finest romantic films to come out of Bollywood in 2007".[41][42] The film's direction and performances were particularly appreciated. Taran Adarsh from indiaFM gave the film a 3.5 out of 5 rating saying it is "as refreshing as an ice-cold watermelon juice in scorching heat."[41] Subhash K. Jha wrote, "...Jab We Met is the kind of cinematic experience that is hard to come by in this day and age of smoky cynicism and borrowed rage."[43] Rajeev Masand from CNN-IBN, who gave the film 3 stars out of 5, described it as "a film bursting with the kind of lovely little moments that'll bring a smile to your face.[44] Khaled Mohamed, of the Hindustan Times, gave the film 3 out of 5 stars, saying the film, "is quite a delight, particularly for its the chirpy-chirpy-cheep-cheep girl and the retentive, moan-groan boy. Directed with a flair for garnishing even the most abject of circumstances with humour and irony, here’s a feel-cool movie. Wonderful.[45]

Most critics agreed that the main highlight of the film was the leading pair and Shahid and Kareena's chemistry. Rajeev Masand further explained, "The real magic of this film lies in the performances of its two main leads who seize your attention from the moment they first appear on screen."[44] Taran Adarsh commented, "Shahid delivers his career-best performance in Jab We Met... Kareena is in top form as well. Jab We Met is a turning point in her career [personally as well as professionally]. Fantabulous -- that's the right word to describe her work this time. The confidence with which she handles the contrasting characterization speaks volumes. This film should do for her what Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) did for Kajol."[41] Subhash K. Jha approved the chemistry as well, "...there are sparks...and the ones between Kareena and Shahid are so unselfconsciously genuine that you end up looking at the characters rather than the two actors going through a series of brilliantly conceived and energized incidents..."[43] The Times of India gave the film 4 out of 5 stars concluding, "The film belongs to Shahid and Kareena who pitch in memorable performances and lend a whole new meaning to the boy-meets-girl story."[46] Moviestalkies.com gave the film 3.5 out of 5 stars and described the movie as "a wonderful film in spite of the fact that its basic premise is extremely simple and has been witnessed several times in the past; in fact there isn’t a single unexpected twist in the tale. However, it is Imtiaz Ali’s treatment and the performances of Shahid Kapoor (undoubtedly his best performance till date) and Kareena Kapoor that transforms this simple script into a romantic film which falls into a class of films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai."[47] Joginder Tuteja from indiaglitz.com gave the film 3.5 out of 5 stars, described it as "Shahid-Kareena's DDLJ", and concluded that "...it would be a pain if any of the two actors do not get awarded and rewarded for their performances..."[48]

Reviews were favourably directed towards the director, Imtiaz Ali, as well. Indiatimes wrote, "After his much appreciated Socha Na Tha (2004), Imtiaz goes bigger and better and the result is nothing but flying colours"[49] while Bollyvista.com noted, "The plot of the film has been done quite a few times before in India, as well as internationally. What sets it apart is the excellent writing and direction by Imtiaz Ali."[50] Movietalkies.com went on to say, "Jab We Met is one of those rare films which is not lifted by its screenplay at all. It is only Imtiaz’s vision of making a simple love story with a breath of fresh air, his ability to repackage something we have witnessed several times before and make it feel new that saves the screenplay. It has been a while since we have seen a fresh love story and we should thank Imtiaz for reminding us that sometimes it not what you say but how well you say it."[47]

Legacy[edit]

Jab We Met remains one of the most popular romantic films in Bollywood. The film helped bring Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor's acting careers to a whole new level. The couple was named onto Bollywood Hungama's list of the top 10 best romantic couples of the decade.[51] According to Hindi Film News, Shahid Kapoor's performance as Aditya Kashyap is ranked number 2 for the finest performance by a Bollywood actor for the decade.[52] Hindi Film News ranked the scene where Aditya and Geet part ways as number 5 in the critic's top ten and number 3 in the popular top ten for the most romantic Bollywood scene of the decade.[53] The film was also ranked by the same source at number two for the best Bollywood movie of the decade. It was behind only Kaminey, another film that Shahid Kapoor had acted in, but ranked ahead of other popular Bollywood movies like 3 Idiots, Lagaan, and Swades.[54] Yahoo! Movies India listed the film as one of the Bollywood's top 10 most romantic movies.[55]

Kareena Kapoor, who had before enjoyed only some success in her previous films, had catapulted herself to becoming one of Bollywood's superstars. Her character, Geet Dhillon, has become one of the most popular and recognizable heroines in Bollywood.[56] She later went on to say about her role, "To play a character like 'Geet' doesn't happen all the time; it just happens. When you begin working on a film, you of course know about the story and your character. However, no one knows how audiences would eventually react to it. 'Geet' did strike a chord with the audiences and became a household name."[57] Kareena Kapoor, for her performance, was ranked at number 66 in Filmfare Magazine's 80 Iconic Bollywood Performances list.[58] According to Hindi Film News, she was number 5 in the critic's top ten and number 4 in the popular top ten for the finest performance by a Bollywood actress for the decade.[59] She was also named by Rediff as one of Bollywood's most beloved characters.[60]
