Free Outdoor Screening in Japantown Peace Plaza

Bollywood Classic RAB NE BANA DI JODI (A Match Made by God, रब ने बना दी जोडी)

Have you ever stopped to wonder if the most ordinary, uninteresting, unobtrusive man you know might have a love story to tell?

Join us for a free outdoor screening of Bollywood Classic RAB NE BANA DI JODI in the Japantown Peace Plaza. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll want to dance!
Film Overview: Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi Have you ever stopped to think if the most ordinary, uninteresting, unobtrusive man you might see on the road or around you might have a love story to tell?

Maybe not! How can an ordinary man have a breathtaking, goose flesh igniting, awe inspiring love story of all things to tell?

But guess what – love does not differentiate between the ordinary and exceptional, the uninteresting and interesting, the unattractive and attractive. Because love knows no distinction. It can happen to anyone and once it does it engulfs us into it completely and gives us those miraculous experiences that only love can yield.

This is what happened to Surinder Sahni (Shahrukh Khan) – a simple, clean hearted, honest man working for Punjab Power, leading a humdrum life, when he meets his total opposite and finds love in the flamboyant, fun-loving, vivacious – Taani (Anushka Sharma) for whom the whole world is her canvas and she paints her own life with the colours of rainbow all until unforeseen circumstances changes it all and brings them together. What follows is a 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.
