Young businessman Aditya (Shahid) is heartbroken to discover that his girlfriend has left him for someone else.

Totally dejected, he aimlessly boards a train where he bumps into Geet (Kareena), a talkative character who annoys Aditya to the point of leaving the train.

As their arguments intensify on the platform, they miss their connection.

Stranded penniless, Geet blames Aditya for this incident ordering him to figure out a way of taking her home.

And so begins a scenic journey through Indian villages as they reach their destination using various modes of transport.

With Geet's plan to elope with her lover, complications ensue as her family mistakes Aditya as her boyfriend, who by now has fallen in love with this lass.

Director Imtiaz Ali may have attempted a story with a predictable ending, but it is his unique and fresh approach of getting the two central characters to love each other as they travel together that makes Jab We Met engrossing to watch.

Shahid Kapoor gives a restrained performance as the dejected Aditya and flawlessly transforms the character into an outgoing personality under Geet's influence.

Kareena Kapoor gives her usual best as Geet, a typical Sikh girl with no inhibitions although in some scenes she goes overboard with her acting.

On the whole, Jab We Met (meaning when we met) is a good all round entertainer worth watching due to the on-screen chemistry between Shahid and Kareena. With an amzing UK box office total of £193.195, this romantic comedy is a definite must-see!
