We Just Met is a unique twist on the romantic comedy genre, fusing the elements of friendship, affection, betrayal and emerging diverse cultures with a classic "American Hollywood" love trope. Set in New York City, the story captures what it means to surrender to love through the metaphor of a foreigner (Liam) thrust into a totally unfamiliar, unforgiving, and quintessentially American urban environment, where he is forced to adapt.

an unpredictable film throughout with some great surprises.
I really LOVED this movie!!! It was SO cute! :D but i'm kinda new to this style of film and now am totally experiencing withdraw since I don't know where to get more comedy and romantic short films.
This is an interesting short romantic and funny movie from Muneeb Hassan. Muneeb is going on in his improvement to produce every time a better movie. And it should inspire all the directors of his genre. The scenes have been mostly shot at outdoor spots like Central Park, Columbus Circle, Washington Square Park and Bow Bridge, and this entertains us as if we are experiencing ourselves a real tour of New York from this crazy girl Stella who dances too. Watching studio scenes made me fed up and my brains. And thats why it's a nice pick up as a short student film.
Although the storyline is not that new with the old movies as a boy meets girl and slowly fall in love but the way Muneeb presented each and every scenes are worth to watch. From the beginning to the end I personally enjoyed the whole film. Great music by Katrina and the waves.
Dan Adams (Liam) was amazing and his acting is just so phenomenal, totally a Hollywood material. Natasha Perkins (Stella) was amazing throughout! Great dancer and very BEAUTIFUL! I have been following her on IG.
In short it was an unpredictable film throughout with some great surprises.
