9 Life Lessons To Learn From *Geet* Of Jab We Met!

By- Shreya Sharma

We all have seen Jab We Met and it is one of those movies we can watch anytime and we know the dialogues by heart. Haven’t you delivered the dialogues while watching the movie? We all could relate to the character of Geet because this is what our hidden self is made up of- fun, chirpy, risk taking and over enthusiasm. Kareena Kapoor Khan aced the character and we cannot imagine someone else in her role. Well, this brilliant film by Imtiaz Ali is not just a story, it teaches us a lot about life. Here are 9 life lessons to learn from Geet of Jab We Met.

  1. The “Sikhni hoon mai Bhatinda ki” swag

Geet knew how to get things done. She was fiercely herself when she said “Aur ab tum mujhe ghar chodoge! Aur woh bhi mere poore samaan ke saath!” Though Aditya was in the suicidal mood, but she managed to convince him to get all the things done for her.

  1. Baring your heart out, even when your only listener is you

Geet was one over enthusiastic soul who knew that how to speak without filters. When you want to speak, you should, no wonder you are with the stranger or you are sleeping.

  1. Consumer Awareness

In the station scene, Geet had the guts to fight with the local vendor for overcharging her for pani ki bottle at midnight on that shady platform. She made it clear that we should be vigilant and must check MRP.

  1. Risk taking

Aditya: Kyun khel rahi ho apni zindagi se Geet?

Geet: Kyunki yeh mera favorite game hai, Zindagi! Jaise logon ka hota hai na Badminton, Cricket, mera bhi hai, zindagi!

Geet was one real unapologetic risk taker because she knew that to live her life, she need not follow the rules. Life does not come with a rulebook, so playing unplanned is the key.

  1. Thinking about others

“Batao tumhe main kaisi lagti hun? Achi Lagti hun? Fataak? Mast? Agar tum mujhe like karte ho, toh meri sister ko bhi like karoge! Roop, meri Cousin. Bilkulll meri jaisi hai”

She tried her best to help Aditya in the train with tickets and knowing where he wants to go and then helping her deal with the feeling of the breakup. She was in a complete mess situation where she lost her bag and was considered as a call girl but she still managed to think about her cousin Roop.

  1. Being practical no matter whatever be the situation

Entering into a hotel with a complete stranger without your luggage and then bargaining like a pro is just a way to teach us the importance of money and bargaining. It does not matter what others think of you or consider you as maal.

 Hum room per ghante ke sahaab se hi lenge!”

  1. “Mai apni Favorite hoon”

This is the perfect dialogue we have come across to use for our haters and to keep ourselves motivated. Being your own favorite is important to keep negativity at bay.

  1. Happy ending is important than settling

Her boyfriend dumped her. She lived in a miserable state. Aditya finds her; she falls in love with him eventually. And then comes Anshuman and this is when she realizes about who makes her truly happy. So rather than settling with the guy, she thought as true love, she marries the guy she wants to.  Do not settle for things. Go for your happily ever after.

  1. Adventure is important

Being serious all the time will kill your life. Adventure and non-sense talks are important to live your life to the fullest. Go adventurous just the way Geet did by holding Aditya’s hand and jumping into the lake without a second thought.
