1. Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor
Our Number 1 jodi consists of two debut actors with a dream first film. Both from filmi families, the two grew up together and are fast friends which contributed to their connection on screen. The dream movie was Saawariya, one of the most highly anticipated films of 2007, directed by the genius Sanjay Lee Bhansali. He put the two through rigorous preparation for their roles, and, though the film did not set the box office on fire, their chemistry shone for all to see. Each time they were together on film you could literally feel their wanting, and in the end … well, in case you have not seen it, I will not give anything away. Not only were their performances brilliant, especially for a debut film, they also looked perfect together. The performance of the two was so superb that Amitabh Bachchan compared them to a Beethoven symphony, “Ranbir is the storm. Sonam is the soft breeze. Ranbir’s presence is a storm, and Sonam is the graceful, calm, gentle breeze that flowed around him. The narrative is almost like a Beethoven symphony, where the thunderous sound of the orchestra is always followed by the soft thin flute – a symbolic interpretation of gentle desire and overpowering destiny.” We know that both of these amazing actors are only going to continue to grow and hone their craft, and we will be eagerly anticipating a film that pairs our Jodi number 1 yet again!
All of our couples were exceptional in their varied roles and we applaud each and every one of their performances. We are sure we will see these bright lights of Bollywood on our lists again, perhaps together or perhaps in a new jodi! We will have to wait and watch to see whose jodi make our hearts go thump in 2008!
