The story of six young Indians who assist an English Woman to film a documentary on the extremist freedom fighters from their past, and the events that lead them to relive the long forgotten saga of freedom.
Depressed after the passing of his father (Dharamraj) and a ditching by his gorgeous girlfriend, Mumbai-based businessman Aditya Kashyap takes a BEST bus, goes to the Chatrapati Shivaji Train Terminus, and boards a train. There he meets Geet Kaur Dhillon, who is returning home to Bhatinda, and who pays for his ticket. At Bar Nagar, he decides to leave, but she follows him, missing her train. They manage to get a ride to Ratlam, miss the train again, but eventually make it to Bhatinda. Once there, he gets to meet her family, her pretty sister Roop as well as her to-be betrothed, Manjeet Singh Mann. Before the engagement can be finalized, she manages to convince her fiancé that she wants to marry Aditya. Before Aditya can take stock of these new developments, she elopes with him - not to get married but to re-locate to Manali where her true love, Anshuman, awaits, and to whom she hopes to get married.

At the station when Geet buys a water bottle, she takes a very small sip in the beginning; however, after a chat with the shop-owner, a considerably larger amount of water is missing from the bottle. See more »
Geet Kaur Dhillon:
You are so selfish. You are thinking only about yourself. What about me?
Aditya D, Kashyap:
What about YOU? This is YOUR life. It's YOUR plan. You are going to elope. What am I doing here? I mean, I am taking the risk of running away with the girl, people are looking for me to murder me, and I don't even GET the girl!

Jab We Met is definitely one of the best movies I've seen so far. Everything is very nice about this movie, totally perfect.
My Reviews: Kareena Kapoor - She really impressed me with this movie. I love how the way she portrayed the lovable & talkative Geet to the sensitive & sad Geet on the second half. She is the life of the movie, no doubt.
Shahid Kapoor - We all know that Shahid is a good actor, but in this movie, we saw something different. We are used to see Shahid in chocolate, college stories, but Jab We Met proved that he can do serious roles without any problems.
Music: Mauja Hi Mauja would definitely my favorite. They saved the best for the last. Mauja Hi Mauja is the best song for the film. But for some reason, it reminded me of "Macarena" (a popular Spanglish song) and "Simarik" (a famous Turkish song).
Story: It's really a very predictable story, but I can say it's refreshing. Why? Most Bollywood movies have heroines that are very "damsel-in-distress" and have no relevance in the story. Jab We Met, on the other hand, has a female for a lead. You can see a woman's pain when she's heartbroken, which I can say is very realistic and I can totally relate to it.
Overall, 9/10 is my rating. Good movie, good actors, good story, good music. Very good. :)
