Jab We Met | Has It Aged Well?
Manage episode 355212395 series 2542885
Continuing our Valentine’s month on #HasItAgedWell, this week Abbas and Urjita sit down with comedian Shreeja Chaturvedi to discuss everyone’s favourite modern rom-com ‘Jab We Met’. Both Shreeja and Urjita are hardcore JWM fanatics whereas Abbas falls somewhere in the middle, which makes for some great talking points where the two fans put up a formidable defence for the film. Topics covered include: The character of Geet, and why she’s iconic, the ‘manic pixie dream girl’ argument, whether JWM has faced a backlash of late? Shahid Kapoor’s stoic performance, whether JWM has affected our real life romances, the ‘road movie’ aspect of the film, the brilliantly written and acted side characters, what’s with the running joke of Geet being a prostitute? Imtiaz Ali’s filmography and much much more.
