Jab We Met: Celebrating 13 Years Of Geet And Aditya’s Perfect Love Story!
About 13 years ago, Aditya Kashyap met Geet on a train and we had the best adventure love story of a lifetime! The movie stars Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor.
Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor’s jodi was once The Golden Couple of Bollywood. Their crackling chemistry made every girl wish for a beau like Shahid. Kareena and Shahid starred in many films together but one of their remarkable ventures together is ‘Jab We Met’. The beautiful romantic film was a blockbuster that was re-watched at least a dozen times by the lovesick. It is not just Shahid and Kareena’s chemistry as Aditya and Geet that made it a foolhardy romance, but also the story and the setup. A travel flick which has a heartbreak spiralling into a chance for second love, two magnanimous personalities and a wonderful family. There is so much to learn from this romantic film.
Watch the film here.
It is unbelievable that the film has completed 13 years, it feels like yesterday when we stood in the line to buy tickets for this film and also bought the DVD/CD to make sure we had Jab We Met marathons with friends. It never felt wrong to binge-watch the film even when the dialogues were fixed right in my head! Geet’s exuberant persona and extroverted character made each of us dream about becoming her. And also having an understanding and broody partner like Aditya. The heartbreaks of the film made us all stronger to bear our own.
While watching Geet reunite with Aditya and shove Anshuman out of her life, I believed that love stories – not the normal ones, but the fairy tale ones, do exist! It is a perfect romance that would make one go weak in the knees. Even if we binge-watch on chick flicks and romantic dramas now, nothing can ever beat the thrill of watching Jab We Met and dancing to the beats of Mauja Hi Mauja, because it’s not the end if it’s not happy!
Yes, everyone deserves a happy ending and that is what Jab We Met showed us. Geet’s impulsive nature and Aditya’s calmness is so well-balanced that it makes the heart fuzzy. The comedy scenes with the driver and the motel are just laughing riots. While the soulful music from Ye Ishq Haaye to Hum Jo Chalne Lage is the tune that is ever close to the heart. Once again, it never feels like Geet and Aditya are far away in the year 2007 because they are here in my heart.
