Jeet (Hindi:जीत, Urdu: جِیت) "Victory", is a song and video clip released in 2018, written and composed by the Indian techno musician Ritviz.

The song's lyrics speak about the importance of seizing the present moment, of enjoying the "now".
The meaning and grammar of the lyrics are a little unclear, the words mostly contribute to provide an ambiance.

In the video clip, three young women who perform very humble jobs (a street seamstress, a fruit seller, and an auto-rickshaw driver), make a pause in their tasks and go together in an evening outing, enjoying their friendship and the simple pleasures of life.

At the end of the video, they resume their work, and the rickshaw driver picks up Ritviz himself.

The three women are played by the actresses Rytasha Rathore, Dimple Paul, and Veronica Vanij.
