30 Best Kareena Kapoor Movies and Where to Watch Them

Published on

Kareena Kapoor has made her mark in Bollywood as a go-to romantic heroine with occasional forays in more serious dramas. If you wish to get acquainted with Kapoor’s stellar filmography, we’ve got you covered with a list that captures her many shades of stardom along with a convenient guide to know where to stream her best movies.

Where to watch Kareena Kapoor’s filmography?

Prime Video and Netflix house most of Kareena Kapoor’s movies while some more niche picks can be found on YUPP TV, Hotstar, Jio Cinema, Hotstar, Voot, Eros Now and more.

If you wish to delve deeper into Kapoor’s cinematic journey so far, here’s a look at her multi-decade career.

From Refugee to K3G: The 2000s

Born into the illustrious Kapoor family (including acting legends like Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor), she made her acting debut in 2000 with the cross-border drama Refugee and quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the industry.

Kareena's journey in Bollywood has been marked by versatility and a penchant for taking on diverse roles. She effortlessly transitioned from playing the girl-next-door in films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (shortened to K3G) to portraying complex roles like an optimistic sex-worker in Chameli and a mob enforcer’s envy-inducing wife in the Othello adaptation Omkara, showcasing her acting prowess in more niche movies.

The early 2000s witnessed Kareena Kapoor Khan's rise to stardom, and she became a leading actress in the Hindi film industry. Her pairing with popular actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, and Hrithik Roshan in successful films contributed significantly to her commercial success. The iconic character of Pooja aka Poo in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham not only became a cultural phenomenon but also established her as a style icon. The character’s sassy dialogues are synonymous with her star persona to this day.

At the turn of the decade, Kapoor displayed her interest in trying out different genres. So, while 2009 witnessed her starring as Aamir Khan’s love interest in the cult comedy 3 Idiots, she also starred in Kurbaan alongside her now-husband Saif Ali Khan. Set in the backdrop of global terrorism, Kapoor played a psychology professor who unknowingly falls in love with a radical fundamentalist. The two would reunite in Agent Vinod, an over-the-top spy thriller that doubled as a decent effort in the Indian espionage subgenre.

More Experimentation and Commercial Success: The 2010s

Kapoor’s projects in the 2010s reflect a more serious evolution in her career as an actress starting with Heroine and Talaash. The former found her playing the titular filmstar who undergoes an existential crisis with her meteoric rise in fame while the latter was a neo-noir horror featuring her in a career-defining performance as an ominous escort embroiled in a crime conspiracy.

More projects like Veere Di Wedding and Udta Punjab showed how apart from commercial validation, Kapoor was also bold enough to take on controversy-sparking, mature narratives. The bridal comedy Veere Di Wedding challenges gender norms while Udta Punjab is a commentary on drug addiction with Kapoor delivering an understated performance as an empathetic doctor.

Why is Jab We Met Kareena Kapoor’s best movie?

Despite her gritty roles winning her critical acclaim, it is Imtiaz Ali’s breakout romantic comedy Jab We Met that is a constant fan-favourite for Kapoor’s admirers. The slice-of-life road trip movie found her playing the perpetually chirpy Geet, a woman who falls for the more sheepish businessman Aditya (played with equal hilarity by Shahid Kapoor). Jab We Met solidified her status as a leading lady and while Kapoor has gone on to play bolder characters in future films, Jab We Met brought the best out of her smiling personality.
