Where did you watch this movie?

'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' is an offbeat love story that delves into concepts of interesting and uninteresting, attractive and unattractive, and illumines a magical journey filled with laughter, tears, joy, pain, music, dance and a lot of love; a journey that makes us believe that there is an extraordinary love story in every ordinary jodi. Amritsar-based Surinder Sahni, employed with Punjab Power, is a simple, repressed man leading mechanical, dreary life. Through a serendipitous quirk of fate, he gets married to Taani, a vivacious and lively young lady who does not approve of him. She remains cold and aloof, and both do not even communicate. When she expresses a desire to participate in a competition called Dancing Jodi, Surinder permits her. He then decides to win her affections by posing as a macho man named Raj Kapoor, enrolls in the same competition, gets to be her partner, and befriends her. Unfortunately, this overture fails, she ends up detesting him even more, and plans to elope with Raj without realizing that he's really her husband. How will Taani react when she comes to know that Raj and Surinder are one and the same? With the both of them find true love and understanding in each other?

Goofs:
Continuity
Raj shows Taani "I LOVE U" written all over the Amritsar town to express his love for her. The next shot shows a close-up of Taani and one can see the reflection of "I LOVE U" in her eyes, but the it's not a mirror image as it should be.

Continuity
As Raj and Taani have a competition to see who can eat more number of gol gappas, Taani's nail polish colour continues to change from red to pink.
Trivia:
The phrase "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte," repeated many times in the movie, is actually a combination of three Bollywood movies that starred the three big Khans: Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke with Aamir Khan, Phir Milenge with Salman Khan, and Chalte Chalte with Shah Rukh Khan, who was the lead in this movie.

The dancing jodi motif seen throughout the film is the famous Raj Kapoor logo, which was designed after a scene between Raj Kapoor and Nargis in the film Barsaat.

The film has no songs performed by Abhijeet and Udit Narayan, two of Shah Rukh Khan's favorite playback singers. Instead, the male singers are Sonu Nigam, Roop Kumar Rathod, Sukhwinder Singh, and Labh Janjua.

The song "Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte" pays tribute to the legendary Bollywood actors Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Dev Anand, and Rajesh Khanna. Each stanza of the song contains lyrics that represent the titles of songs filmed with those aforementioned actors.

As part of the film's promotional campaign, the film's teaser trailer was released on November 2, 2008, Shah Rukh Khan's 43rd birthday.

Sonam Kapoor did a screen test and was strongly considered for the lead role.
