"In the end, they both manage to catch that train, together." Arre vah! What an outstanding review of one of my favourite films. You've done a fantastic job of highlighting WHY it was such a seminal film. And I chose that word carefully. I really think JWM will be THE filmi romcom from the 00s looked back on as a classic the way we look at back at gems from the 60s now.

Gah!!! Loved it! Loved reading this! You even gave me goosebumps a couple of times. Thank you! I wish I could ever find the words to describe just how much I love this movie, like you have done here, but I probably won't. And now that you have done it so well, I don't feel that I have to try anymore. :)

Btw, can I just say how much I love that you said "Kareena is magnificent as Geet." twice? :) <3 It sure bears repeating!


Thanks to you both. It took me a week to write that, and I know there was so much more I could have said. So much, in fact, that I can now see some places where I can connect this film to others and revisit it from different angles at some point.

And, yes, I know I wrote that twice. I actually thought about pulling or rephrasing, and then decided, you know what? She *is* magnificent.

And now I think I need maybe to write about something that won't take me a week to put a post together.
