And the 53rd Filmfare Award for best actress goes to…
Jab We Met (Hindi: जब वी मेट, English: When We Met) is a 2007 Hindi romantic comedy film. Directed and written by Imtiaz Ali, the film, produced by Dhillin Mehta under Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd, stars Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor in their fourth film together. Dara Singh and Saumya Tandon, prominent actors from the north Indian film industry, played the roles of the lead character’s relatives in the movie. The film tells the story of a feisty Punjabi…she is a very intelligent girl. She is a girl who is sent off track when she bumps into a depressed Mumbai businessman on an overnight sleeper to Delhi. While attempting to get him back on board when he alights at a station stop, both are left stranded in the middle of nowhere. Having walked out of his pressurised corporate job, the man has no destination in mind, until the girl forces him to accompany her back home and then on to elope with her secret boyfriend.

Kareena performing at the Filmfare Awards, looking bilkul like the award:
I think Kapoor is worthy of the award because she showed her character, Geet, could go from one extreme to the other. You know, like those comedy and tragedy masks of theater. Here’s visual proof of her great acting: A bubbly, chatty, happy Geet and a super sad Geet crying real tears: (yes, I cried too.)
Enjoy this little clip about the 53rd Filmfare awards. I especially liked Shahrukh Khan saying he’d give his award to cute little Darsheel Safary, since he deserves it, but then he removes his offer, because he too deserves it as he’s older, thus he decides to keep it:
Opps! that video was removed. I’ll try and find it again to repost.
Like the last video posted, here’s playback singer Shreya Ghosal, with “Ye Ishq Hai” from Jab We Met. The music is by Pritam, with lyrics by Irshad Kamil, and the song is picturized on the 53rd filmfare winner for best actress, Kareena Kapoor:
Thanks for the video rawnee1983
