Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Review
Karan Johar’s latest outing is another story about the rich and glamorous people and how they deal with love, friendship and life. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has a stellar star cast in Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma and popular Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is a product of age old storyline, borrowed sequences and lots of music camouflaged in a typical Karan Johar package. There is parties, songs and picturesque locations of Paris, Vienna and London.
Ranbir Kapoor as Ayan, the filthy rich wannabe singer has delivered a terrific performance. He oozes pain, crumbles, cries and is lively. He is the USP of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Anushka Sharma plays Alizeh who is in love with Ali, played by Fawad Khan. She is outgoing and full of life. The realistic chemistry between Alizeh and Ayan is what is shown in the first half.
In the later half, we are introduced to Saba, a happily divorced woman who is in look for a love. The gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan sparks the scenes with her looks. But she did not have much of a screen space just like Fawad Khan.
The performance of all the lead artists are commendable and they hold together the movie. There are some interesting cameos, songs and all that we get to see in a Karan Johar movie.
The way the plot moves forward seems very outdated and not engaging. It becomes too predictable after a particular point of time.
If the director had invested more time in the writing portions and tried to infuse some freshness to the plot, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil would have been a much better product.
