Posted by me on September 21st 2010: "Main apni favourite hoon," says Geet. And you are left stunned how can one be so full of life. Kareena Kapoor's performance in 'Jab We Met' is one of my all time favourite performances by any actress. In fact when you guys will watch the long interview that I did with her for 'Golmaal 3' you shall see how much we've spoken about JWM. I am embarassed to admit but I almost behaved like a fan when I talked to her about JWM and pleaded her to con Imtiaz Ali into working with her again (Kareena is a director's actress. And Imtiaz gets the best out of female actors in Bollywood today).
As she celebrates her 30th birthday today, I've tried to get comments from her fans. Many of you have sent their wishes. I have tried to take most of them. They are listed here below. And some have been jotted down in the comments section. So, feast on all the detailed analysis, lovely cards, memorable scenes, favourite films...only of Kareena Kapoor. Its her day...make it special...for her...and yourself! And yes keep adding your comments below...

My Favorite Kareena Characters!
Well, being a self confessed Kareena fan, I would love to talk about my top 11 Kareena Characters, and why , I've created this list by awarding points to each performance on the scale of 10. That point is also shown in bracket.
11) POO - Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (7.8/10)
Well, poo was her first successful character and most popular for that matter. She was this teenage spoilt brat who wouldn't like to wear dress at all :haha: Her comic timing was really good in this movie. People either hated or loved her, but nobody could ignore her, which told me that the character worked big time. She's funny at the same time irritating as POO(or Pooja), but she could never fail to evoke amusement.
10)Kaurvaki - Asoka(8/10)
User posted image
She looked so beautiful in this film. Infact, such attires look best on her. She acted the role of an arrogant yet soft princess. I can watch this movie 100 times again just for Kareena. Though the clothes were revealing, the kohl eyed look and slim body didn't make her look vulgar at any point, she had to be sensous at many points, be in the 'Raath Ka Nasha' song and 'San Sanana' song, but nevertheless she could hold the aura and sophistication required for a princess. It's too marvelous to look at the love struck face of Kareena. Her classic beauty was best captured in this movie I guess. Just for looks, I would give 9.5/10 for this movie.
9)Nazneen - Refugee(8/10)
Well, I fell in love with Kareena because of this movie. Nobody could believe that it was her debut movie. She acted like someone who has been in the movies for too long. She didn't have much make up in this movie. She played the role of a simple muslim girl, who doesn't even wear much jewellery. So, her face and eyes could create an ever lasting impact with this movie. We all love classic indian beauties, be it Madhubala, Meena Kumari, Rekha etc. They were not judged by their body, but rather judged by their face, that too not the external beauty, but their ability to express love on their face. That's why we called them classic beauties. You need nothing else, their face is more than enough. You can look at their poetic expression for too long. Their face reflected love, pain, coyness, grace and strength. in the 90's we had Madhuri and Kajol with such radiant faces. Indians could look at Kajol's deep eyes for hours and we could also destroy ourself at Madhuri's killer smile. Then we have been waiting for a heroine with that kind of an appeal on the face. And one fine morning, Kareena came before us with her nazneen. Have a look at her expressive face, you will know what I mean.
and let's reminisce some of the classic beauties of Bollywood, just with a magical face, deep eyes and sorrow on their face made us look at them for hours... and say "god, what a beautiful face..". Madhubala and Meena Kumari are the biggest examples
8 ) PIA - 3 Idiots (8.1)
3 Idiots was out and out a boys film. That everybody knew from start, because '5 Point Someone' was a well read book in India. However, the director, rajkumar hirani was kind enough to present Kareena in a performance oriented role in this film. She looked quite good with Aamir. She looked extremely beautiful in the wedding attire.
7)Avantika - Kurbaan (8.4)
She played this strong willed character Avantika in Kurbaan. She portrayed the helplessness and struggles of that character extremely well on screen. She realizes that her husband is a terrorrist, and from that moment her life is a horrifying experience for her. How she copes with her difficult situation, that's what the rest of the film, and kareena was effective throughout with her eyes conveying a thousand emotions.
6) Aaliya - DEV(8.7/10)
One of the most powerful character ever on Bollywood celluloid. She was the victing of the riots and she's not afraid of giving a testimony against those people ignited this bloody riot. There are few powerful scenes where she sparkled on screen even in front of Amitabh bachchan and Om Puri.
I loved her simple looks in this film, as I always want to see her in de-glam avatar so that I can see her radiant face and eyes more clearly.
5) Dr. Tanvi - Kyonki(8.8/10)
Well, Priyadarshan is my favorite director and Kareena's favorite too as she always wanted to work with him. He's known for presenting his heroines in most beautiful getup in his films(Mani Ratnam too is known for this). I've been waiting for them to do a movie together, and finally they did the hit comedy Hulchul. Kareena had nothing much to do in that movie, then they came up with Kyonki, which was a remake of Priyadarshan's malayalam film talavattam(which was again inspired by One few over cookoo's nest). Kareena had ample scope to be expressive in this role of an asylam doctor who falls in love with the patient. She looked quite beautiful in a saree. On the look wise, will give 9.5/10 for this one too. Unfortunately the film flopped, doesn't matter, the movie was good, well a tragic love story for that matter.
4) Geet - Jab We Met (9.1/10)
Well, people just loved Kareena's character in Jab We Met. Infact Kareena's most loved character, and she's considered as number 1 with the release of this movie. Geet was so lovable as a character, and she could play geet to the perfection, all the praise and awards vouch for that fact. People said, "Jab We Met did to Kareena what Kuch Kuch Hota Hai did to Kajol". That was true.
3)Mira - Yuva (9.2/10)
Well, being a Mani Ratnam heroine is every actresses dream. Not only does he make them look like dream, he also presents them in most powerful roles. All his heroines are powerful and at the same time hopelessly romantic. Same happens with Mira. Though kareena had tough competition from Rani and Esha deol in the same movie, he held her role very high in terms of performance. Mira was constantly fighting for her love, the one who she loved wasn't a perfect husband/boyfriend material. He wasn't serious about life, he was irresposible and he was flirtatious; and Mira had to fight all these if she ever wanted to be with him, and she successfully accomplished her goal at the end. Kareena was fantastic in this role. One of the most natural and restrained Kareena performance ever.
2)Dolly Mishra - Omkara (9.3/10)
Well, what else to say. Look wise I would give 9.5/10 again for this movie. She looked amazing in this movie, after all, Othello's desdemona was one of the most beautiful women and her beauty lead to her destruction. Rightfully, Vishal Bharadwaj presented her in such light, she turned out to be an irresistable beauty with poise and grace. The climax and the one scene where she pours her heart to Konkana remains my favorite. Well, she can proudly show this film to all her grand children, as she quoted once.
AND NOW THE NO.1 PERFORMANCE....
1)Chameli - Chameli (9.4/10)
A prostitute with a heart of gold, we have seen julia Roberts in Pretty Women in such a role, and she became America's sweetheart over night after the movie. Here Kareena couldn't be that because Chameli wasn't a big hit, but those who have seen the movie will realize that she was extremely lovable.
The bright colored saree and blowse and over the top make up of a street prostitute only added to the beauty of that character. She was so lovable, as she meets this business man on a rainy night, and they are forced to spend time together in a bus stand. The movie depicts the happenings of that one night, their encounter with police, and her pimp who forces her to sleep with an aids patient. The businessman played by Rahul Bose realises that behind that tough avatar she's an extremely lovely girl and she is dealing with a thousand problems in life. Yet, she's happy, she's not whining about her troubles. He falls in love with her character towards the end...but they go seperate ways in the morning because both have to live their life.
Kareena's character was one of the best characters ever written for a female protagonist in Hindi cinema. Chameli wasn't hard hitting, she was playful and funny, at the same time strong, an extremely complex character, which Kareena played to the perfection.
