Where did you watch this movie?

Subtle and ebullient, this upbeat love story revolves around the trials and triumphs in the life of Mumbai-based businessman Aditya Kashyap, who is heartbroken after the death of his father, combined with the ignominy of being unceremoniously dumped by his gorgeous girlfriend. At a crossroads in life, he finds himself stepping into a BEST bus, travelling to Chatrapati Shivaji Train Terminus, and boarding a train. This is where he meets Geet Kaur Dhillon, who is returning home to Bhatinda, and who pays for his ticket. At Bar Nagar, he decides to leave, but she follows him, missing her train. They manage to get a ride to Ratlam, miss the train again, but eventually make it to Bhatinda. Once there, he gets to meet her family; her pretty sister, Roop; as well as her to-be betrothed, Manjeet Singh Mann. Before the engagement becomes final, she manages to convince her family that she wants to marry Aditya, and they welcome him with open arms. Before he can figure out head or tail of the situation, he finds himself going along as Geet elopes with him - not to get married - but to re-locate to Manali - where her true love, Anshuman, is waiting, and whom she hopes to marry. How will Aditya respond to this whirlwind sequence of events? How will their respective futures unfold?

Crew/Equipment Visible
Microphone is visible in the reflection of the mirror when karina's mom is asking karina about how she has been, when she came back to home after 9 months!

Errors in Geography
Shahid leaves Mumbai in Punjab Mail from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST). Punjab Mail takes the central route and reaches Delhi via Itarsi, Bhopal. But in the movie, the train takes the Western route via Ratlam, Kota.

Factual Mistake
The train 2137 Punjab Mail runs between Mumbai and Firozpur (Punjab), not between Mumbai-Delhi as shown in movie.

Continuity
At the station when Geet buys a water bottle, she takes a very small sip in the beginning. However, after a chat with the shop-owner, a considerably larger amount of water is missing from the bottle.

Continuity
Right before the scene when Geet and Aditya hitch a ride on the truck, Aditya is carrying the backpack when he signals to the truck. In the next shot, however, Geet is holding the backpack

Continuity
In the song Mauja Hi Mauja, Kareena'shirt strap disappears in one shot, and is seen throughout the rest of the song.

Continuity
The security person on the railway station on the bridge when Shahid run to catch the taxi is the same who was at the reception of the hotel.
Trivia:
As part of the film's promotion, the producers painted two full local trains in Mumbai from the Western and Central lines with imagery from the film, with Shahid Kapoor present to chat with fellow passengers and inform them about the movie.

Kareena Kapoor was writer/director Imtiaz Ali's first choice for the role of Geet, as even though he wasn't particularly a fan of hers and hadn't seen her in many movies, he knew she would be able to look natural without makeup, be hyper, talkative and interesting but not irritating.

Writer/director Imtiaz Ali only settled on Shahid Kapoor for the role of Aditya after meeting him, as he previously viewed him as a "forgettable actor", before realizing that he had "gone through a lot in life and that maturity had never been brought out" and that as such he was perfect for the part of a "young, mature, quiet guy".

The number of prints for the film across India was increased in its fourth week of release due to popular demand and the lower-than-expected performance of Saawariya.

Dehli's PVR Cinemas held special screenings of the film on Valentine's Day 2008 to celebrate its 100 days run at the box office.

A private screening of the film was organized at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai for those associated with the film and their families on October 23rd, 2007.

Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor who play lovers in the film were also dating in real life - until they broke up whilst making the movie.

The title of the film was decided by a popular vote. The other choices were 'Punjab Mail' and 'Ishq Via Bhatinda'.
