JAB WE MET – Tab I Cry

Filed under: India, movies, my views — Tags: , , , — nitin @ 9:23 am

Jab we Cry
It gives me immense pleasure to share my views or rather frustation after watching “JAB WE MEET” movie…
Third class movie hain…I swear..cant say mat dekho..bcos sabne dekhi hogi..

Iss movie ko 4 kya ,main to ek rating bhi nahi dunga…

I literally wasted my 3hrs + brks in between for brushing my teeth..taking bath..break fast.. on a Diwali day…
wat is so wrong wid everyone? wat’s so grt about this movie?

There’s no grt emotional rosy romantic big drama.It doesn’t has anything to offer…its just like any other obvious love-story..

One Rich boy and One hyper active…they travel 2gether(PYAR TO HONA HE THA starring Ajay devgan& kajol)..end main love traingle..(KUCH KUCH HOTA HAIN..) yaad nahi hain kya public ko?

And again the craze with a punjabi family..and their weddings.

In Bollywood , Directors/Producers/writers (are in love wid punjabis) can only think of a plot wid Punjabi family style..Every movie  is composed of only Punjabi Family..with great grandparents, and a big joint family.All healthy ,wealthy and big hearted….Is it that only punjabi families has all fun and grt marriages?

There’s no identity to Indian family on screen  apart from giving a punjabi look and their traditional and super duper fatty marriages..?Or is this just to WOO the NRI’s in the west..Their’s a big market overseas mind you..

Karan johar ke sade hue movies waha pe kafi chalte hain..bcos woh NRI’s ko emotionally leta giving them memories about the sweet punjab and their traditions..

I accept that punjabis are really different and they have  great culture.. NO DOUBT .But viewing the same stuffs like punjabi dances & marriages in every movie by karan Johar..and other’s are making me feel all such film monotonous widout any creativity…

Lets come to the movie..The character played by Kareena can never be related wid real-life..Extra extrovert, still traditional and ready to fix up and run after an unknown stranger… ,blabbering her autobiography , kissing, hugging all free of cost..widout any efforts being put by Shahid to woo her.. are Bhatinda girls really so crazy that they hook up wid any stranger  in real life..(sorry am getting carried away)..
Finally the plot of the two meeting up was totally undigestable.

This movie was just some ordinary love story or a bhelpuri of all other love-stories ; which we have seen 300 times…
The story is so obvious ;If she loves another guy…The third guy  will  make appearance after interval..(same thing happened wid KKHH)..then love triangle..and then the dilemma to go  with which boyfriend.idhar -udhar and finally landing up wid the hero(Shahid)…wat the crap..

The only thing i liked is Kareena Kapoor and her Patiala..she looks grt.. 🙂

It’s sad that even critics have given this movie **** .or I am the only Sucker who didn’t like this movie even for a free download…???


  1. I saw this movie…it was quite stupid. But I did like one dialogue “Bachpan se hi na, mujhe shaadi karne ka bada shauk hai By God” 😀

    I think no one can be this stupid yaar…Esp. when Kareena goes to that Hotel Decent and doesn’t understand what the clerk is implying…Oh puhleezz…gimme a break!!

    Also, Shahid hardly spoke in the first 30 mins or something…I was like “Is he dumb??”

  3. Sorry brother… Blog ab tak padha nahi…blog ka title dekh ke yeh comment daal raha hoon…

    I have no idea abt the movie, but I presume that you are writing a lengthy blog on a “Shahid Kapoor” movie …coz u r obviously frustrated. Chal accha hain, after wasting 3 hrs of valuable time, its better to waste some minutes on taking out the frustration here, so that din mein kuch accha kaam kiya aisa lagega. U know what, even if the reviews say that shahid’s movie has 5 stars, I wudnt go and watch his movie. I am really not ready for shahid’s girly expressions and his not-so-worth-even-a-penny dialogue delivery !!!…He sucks. I hope he learns a bit a acting from apna toxic guys. 😛

    baaki kya…I know girls are crazy for Mr. feminine looks…Shahid kapur….but bhai apun toh usko “char aana”(25 paise) bhi nahi dega….uski acting ke liye…:P

    @Anup.. 🙂
    lol…Sach main.yaar..shot movie tha..TOXIC guys rock harder than shahid “the baccha”..isliye usko Kareena ne Dhaachu diya hain.. muje se badi bhul ho gayi bhai… i swear i will think twice before going for a shahid movie..

  11. @anup..
    I think you are high..wat made u make such comments in this post? hehehe

    Hiii..Welcome here..
    Our thought’s about this movie match like carbon copy…Even my main pain was the unrealisitic characters…which i have mentioned in my blog and also about the big hype and hoopla about punjabization…

    Hey.. I thought am the only one out there…screaming to the world that this movie is a crapppp…Nice to find you here…

    Comment by nitin — November 11, 2007 @ 11:18 am

  12. @Nitin

    Thou I haven’t watched the movie yet, I say it’s a crap. Aur tension mat le, duniya ko scream karke batane ka jaroorat nahin hain. Iss movie mein Shahid hain…duniya ko implicitly pata chal jayega ki it’s a flop. Girls are exception!

    Fantastic lines.. baat main gheraiye hain..hahhaha

    usse accha tom and jerry dekh.. hahaa

    Comment by nitin — November 12, 2007 @ 7:02 am

  17. hey..I liked Shahid Kapoor’s performance..and I loved the movie..and I think if the essence of both characters were retained and setting be changed from Punjab to another place (to remove the cliche), the movie would still be fun… 🙂

    The only time I felt bored in the movie was when Imtiaz Ali wanted to show Kareena’s volte face (change of mind)on her new love interest. It dragged at that point. But I would still give the move a 3, much better than Om Shanti Om that I watched yesterday.

    BTw, Ruhi mentioned a dialogue in the first comment..true such dialogues have no place in real life but they were hilarious in the movie.:)

    Comment by Poonam Sharma — November 12, 2007 @ 11:27 am

  18. Yaar Nitin, cool it!!! Itna kharab bhi nahi tha..

    yes, it was yet another love story. Yes, it was a vhelpuri of amny love stories.. But hey, how diff r saawariya or OMO for that matter..

    At the end of the day, audience want to watch a well packged movie.. which i think Jab We Met is…

    Yaar, sometimes i dont understand why do we get so critical about trivial things like movies.. after all, its justa movie.. acutally, may be i too get critical..after all, i too wrote a blog on saawariya vs. OMO…

    But i liked the start and the end… after all, dont u think life shud b unpredicable like that! u can always argue over the point that how cud he marry a gal whom he knw only fr 3-4 days..ya.. both of them were v much in love with 2 other ppl at the point they met… phir bhi chalega!

  20. @ Vaishno..

    Madam…k chill.. kuch cheeze digest karna kafi mushkil hota hain..And u said “But i liked the start and the end… after all, dont u think life shud b unpredicable like that”

    Maam if u read my post carefully, I have talked about “Pyar to hona he tha” and “KUch Kuch hota hain”…and trust me,I knew wats all going to my 6th sense on Indain movies is very strong..It was quite obvious..for me to guess the end infact..Kitne movies main last main aisa love triangle dikhaya hain..

    any way.. Everyone has their opinion and their own taste..Public has short memory..

    Who’s going to listen to you anyway…

  22. the fact of the matter is …ladkiyon ko Shahid baccha pasand hain…But, shahid tabhi hit ho sakta hain jab woh koi ‘Ladki’ ka ka role karega…
    aur same for Kareena…she is best for her exaggerated expressions…

    Comment by Anoop — December 7, 2007 @ 11:44 pm

  23. Hey I totally agree with what you have said, the same old bhelpuri love story and those love triangle and non-real setups. Too much influence of the Punjabi family. After watching bollywood movies either the bollywood actors and actresses are filled with people from Punjabi background or half of the India is Punjab. When I heard the title of the movie I felt like watching it, now after your comments I don’t feel like.

  24. Heyyyyyy Srini…welcome to WordPress finally..

  25. hey who had written it ……….. how stupid whoseso ever had written it i must say ‘yaar tere choice bade gandi hai itne achi movie tujhe bekar lage ‘ i just love the movie i know the story line is only common but in the story there is difference comedy , a good chemesty between shaid & kareena , the twists in film ….i think the film is not actually bad fom 5 i will give the film 4 & half…………..

    Comment by srishti — December 16, 2007 @ 11:35 am

  26. hey u said ki Directors/Producers/writers are in love wid punjab ……..lagta hai tumne kabhi punjab nahi dekha ya koi aur punjab dekh liya hai …i m frm punjab i can say punjab ek aisa jagah hai jiss se pyaar ho jayye….but actually jo pictures main dekhate hain punjab ke barre mein vaisa to yahan pehle hi hota tha imean to say 10 or 15 years back ( khet, haveli itna rishtadar and all that bhatinda) bhatinda city mein konse khet hain kyon ki bhatenda to ab city main devolp ho chuka hai city ke baha r zaroor honge jahan tak mere knowlage hai but whatever i like the film and the acting of Shahid

    Comment by srishti — December 16, 2007 @ 11:47 am

  27. @Srishti

    I respect your choice an your views.But it didnt change my views..I am really sick of punjabism in Hindi movies..pata nahi aap log kyo bore nahi hote..Pls look at the broader picture..

    I certainly feel the movie has a fresh look..but it feel disapointed by story line and usual stuffs..Agreed the presentation is bit different..

    Wat about Bhatinda gals?? kya woh kareena ki taraf behave karti hain?

  29. I am sick of Mumbai-zation and Hinduzation of Bollywood. Hate the mumbai-based gundagardi or Bihari based movies going on for decades. The Punjab themed movies are relatively few but a breath of fresh air. I liked this movie…very positive/optimistic, just pure entertainment.

  30. Hi all great information here and good thread to comment on.

    I am an adict to training and really want to get to my best this year!

    Can I ask though – how did you get this picked up and into google news?

    Very impressive that this blog is syndicated through Google and is it something that is just up to Google or you actively created?

    Obviously this is a popular blog with great data so well done on your seo success..

  31. Hi,
    Yes, it was predictable…we all know what ws gona happen………..
    I mean anyone who knows anything fo bollywood…knew!!!

    But that doesnt mean it wasnt nice.I loved the movie….It was no classic as already said,BUT it was fun.When i’d seen d promos i wud hav bet its useless….repetition but now……hats off!!!!

    Mythology based soap operas,ramayan,history,….prithviraj chauhan…..we all know d story still luk @ d TRP!!!!

    Why, do we watch only what we dont know???????(then u r talkin abt thrillers mayb,but this wasnt any)

    We watch it for how its done….
    The dialogue was gr8 through out…..

    It might not b realistic……in normal terms…..but we all r insane in some way or the other….jumping into d water….was somethin u wud never kno if u dint do it…..sometimes, u need to leave ur rationality….to b happy

    It shows us too much of seriousness is gona ruin u, a bit of craziness is required….

    Yes she was hyper-active ….but sometimes its good to go by instinct……n whatever happened wid her also showd too much of implusiveness is no good,either

    It showed that today’s women make d choices for themselves n r even happy to bear d consequences….
    Thankgod not another Indian gal sacrificing for family!!!!
    NOW That wud hav been typical….!!!

    All the dialogues showing us…todays youth
    r so realistic….
    The movie talkd of optimisim(going beyond the expected NORMS…as shaheed did in his business wen he went back),strength of character, the ability to bear consequences…..

    n also true love(no mushy scene…m sry,but REALITY is not abt corny stuff)…
    but pure unconditional luv aftr 9 months..wen u knew d gal ws someone else’s,n still u try to hook her up wid him!!!!
    (Kajol had salman in KKHH…n not such luv in Pyar to hona hi tha…..kajol’s bf dumped her n she fell for ajay…..)

    The tiny little things that matter so much…
    not leaving ur passion for anything…

    (ab music…..nai…
    kyu tumhari life khatam hogayi hai kya?
    blunt,gr8 yet at d best timing!!!)
    bolna padega or can u read my mind?…wht dialogues!!

    I agree wid d punjab extra!!!!but leaving that… was mauja hi mauja!!!Its punjab maharastra or gujrat or simply south, they dnt evn care 2 say tamil or telugu, lol….
    but thats bollywood, thay hav to make money too….

    its easy tos ay abt cultural biases, go do something

    If this ws punjab extra wot ws singh is kinng??

    And pls , here there was no college ,dating buraeu stuff………like other bollywood flicks…KKHH too….but v all luvd it,dint we?
    col luv wasnt shown at all

    U talk of crap?This aint any!!!!
    These movies mark a difference…..only if u have d outlook!!!
    I felt optimistic wid d dialogues , d tone,wenever i saw it….
    it punches in some life into u….
    some impulse, some vibe,….n some crazy fun,…..d dare to take risk!!!!
