Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil finally reached the theatres, after much hullabaloo and jingoism. The film is directed by Karan Johar after Student Of The Year, that was four years back but the director just strikes back with some more solicity to romance.
The film deals with relationships, friendship and the complexities of human lives that are way beyond one’s control because it’s the call of two different souls. The story revolves around best friends Ayan and Alizeh, played by Ranbir and Anushka respectively. Things change when Anushka gets involved with Ali, played by Fawad Khan. When Ayan gets distanced from her, in steps Aishwarya aka Saba.
It’s not just a love triangle but the kltuzy dilemma surrounding them that makes ADHM as intriguing as Aishwarya’s stunning blue eyes. The actress makes a power comeback as Ranbir’s love interest. After Jazba and Sarabjit, this one makes her shine in the true aura, even in her extended cameo. When you look at Aishwarya, you can’t really blame Ayan for sidelining his puppy love.
Ranbir in his role is fit to the T and delivers a performance last displayed in Rockstar, maybe much more vulnerable than that. Anushka has done similar sort of role in Jab Tak Hai Jaan but the powerhouse actress manages to bring the essential spark of the stuck-in-between Alizeh.
And to talk about the controversial part of Fawad, well, the man might have sparked an outrage in the nation but watching him on screen makes it all worth it. The hype is all due to his dreamy looks and even more bang on acting skills.
The film is an enigma of romance, which was long missing from Bollywood and there’s no doubt, it’ll make up the collections shoot exponentially.
Cameos by SRK, Alia and Lisa Haydon add up the star value and keep you binded just as the locales. This one is right for a Diwali release, it’ll spark up the screens for sure.
