The story goes like this:
Aditya (Shahid Kapur) is a businessman who is going through a rough patch. His business hits rock bottom and the girl he loves is getting married.
Unable to face the failures, Aditya decides to leave Mumbai and aimlessly boards a train. As destiny has it, he meets Geet (Kareena), a pretty but annoyingly talkative girl who is on her way to Bathinda, Punjab. After reaching home, she has plans of eloping with her boyfriend.
Geet's constant blabbering irritates Aditya so much that he gets off the train. She tries to get him back, but before she can convince him, the train leaves and the two find themselves stranded in an isolated station with no money.After that they embark on a unique journey through the exuberant north Indian heartland. They make their way through buses, taxis and camel carts, across deserts and lakes, and finally reach Punjab.
When Geet reaches home, her family mistakes the two for lovers. Before this misconception can be cleared, Geet goes away to her boyfriend in Manali. Aditya too leaves with her.
The trip to Manali rejuvenates Aditya morally and emotionally and he decides to return to Mumbai and put his business back on track. And he succeeds. Everything goes fine till Geet's family confronts Aditya.
He is shocked when he is told that Geet has not returned. He takes it upon himself to find her and tracks her down in a Himalayan town. After that the two start another journey to reach Bathinda.
How their separate journeys become one is what 'Jab We Met' is all about. Unlike other Bollywood films, 'Jab We Met' is mainly shot in India and the director has tried to capture beautiful hill stations in Himachal Pradesh and the vibrant colours of Punjab.
Ali's directorial debut 'Socha Na Tha' was a nice entertaining film, but it didn't do well at the box office. And now the Kareena-Shahid break up is posing a threat to his second directorial venture.
Shahid's 'Vivah' was a huge hit but Kareena hasn't had any big hit so far, therefore the film is important for everybody associated with it.
