so how long has it been since u fell in love at first sight? wen was the last time love hit u gently like a breeze, assuring u tat alls good in life if loves beside u ? wen was it last tat u saw a love story and came out thinking of that first itme u met ure partner??? if it was ages back , its time to relive those moments , yeah its time to catch the latest kareena shahid starrer jab we met!
its seldom tat love stories are made sans cliches , villians and explicit intimacy and in ure face sex? jab we met comes as a whiff of fresh air , and steals ure hearts away from the word go.
the premise is old, a talkative bubbly lively girl , and a silent introverted guy, meet on a journey , a comedy of errors ensues , and cupid strikes! wat makes jab we met different ,is the treatmetn , and ofcourse the fresh new kareena and shahid pair!
now now the lead couple have done films together earlier and ended up looking like brother sisters lost in the kumbh, but this is thier first outing in a out and out romantic film, and both make u go weak in the knees wid thier cute pairing. add to that director imtiaz ali ( socha na tha fame ) and jab we met is a winner.
performances wise kareena is in top form, the roles tailor made for her , and she uses the chance to make it into the career defining role tat eluded her all these years. slimemr , mature and more confident of her craft, she is the soul of the film. shahid too shines, and delivers the goods effortlessly. cute funny lines, witty dialogues , and innovative situations make the film delightfully entertaining.
a must watch for all this season , jab we met is recommended like hot coffee in winters!!!

the music is out ! fianlly!! after wiaitng for two long years isnce the announcement of the film , all us madhuri dixit fans heave a huge sigh of relief as aaja nachle songs hit the stores from oct 18th !
and wat a score it is !!
yash raj films , though known for good foot tapping albums for their films , seemed to have floundered in 2007 with less than average scores of tararumpum and jbj , as was wi9d the case of srk starrer chak de india! . so i personally expected less wen salim sulaiman were hired to give music for madhuri's come back vehicle. to add to tat , vaibhavi merchant replaced saroj khan , and singers like kavita and alka , traditionally madhuris voice, were given the cold shoulder for fresher voices of sunidhi and shreya. the results , though , surprise u !
sunidhi is in excellent form , at par with ehr dhoom rendition in the tittle ditty now doing th erounds of the promo circuits. aaja nachle rocks. and adi chopra is pardoned for choosing vaibhavi if the tralier is anything to go by.
6 of the total 8 tracks are dance numbers. show me ure jalwa koi pathar na maare and dance with me are easy on the ears and readily hummable. at the same time the romantic duo between shreya and sonu is feel good and fun.
over all the album is full of folksy yet contemporary urban sounds, much like madhuri;s image of being the darling of the masses and the classes at the same time.
the movie rests entirely on madhuri's name. so does the sound track. and in the process, salim sulaiman have shown that given the chance , they too can make music!
