Having nothing to do on Sunday evening, I thought I might as well watch the movie, Jab We Met (telecast on Sony), since I remembered reading good reviews about it. But I have never liked Shahid Kapoor. So I started watching the movie, not sure of how long I will have the patience to watch Shahid and Kareena. Besides, these days, I seem to have lost the patience to sit through the long breaks in between. 20 minutes into the movie, the first break came and still I wasn’t bored of the movie. In fact, I seemed to like it!
Though this movie reminded me of so many other movies like Pyar To Hona Hi Tha and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, yet there were a lot of scenes aided by good dialogues that made for nice moments throughout this movie. The bonding between Shahid and Kareena that starts with Kareena chatting away endlessly while Shahid, forget about uttering a word, does not even changes the sad, serious expression on his face and ultimately ends with them both tying the knot is shown beautifully. But it’s beautiful only till the point where Shahid succeeds in getting Kareena reunited with her ex-lover. From that point onwards, the movie becomes boring and the scenes that follow pale in comparison to the earlier ones. But anyway since the movie ends soon after that, it isn’t that bad after all. The songs weren’t that bad either. There were some beautiful sunsets and sunrises shown to mark the end/beginning of many days throughout the movie.
On the whole, it was a nice movie. After a long time, I liked a Hindi movie that I watched on TV….
