Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is all about love, friendship and emotions.This Karan Johar directorial starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will surely reinstate the fact that ‘hum ek baar jeete hai and PYAR bhi ek hi baar hota’. The movie ADHM proves that Ranbir Kapoor is back in action and the flop of his life has just disappeared.
Karan Johar’s ADHM, opens to a scene where Ranbir Kapoor the famous singer is giving an interview and is asked a question on love. Telling about his love Ayan (Ranbir) goes on to tell is story, how he fell in love with Alizeh (Anushka). Alizeh, however is head over heels in love with her ex-boyfriend Ali (Fawad Khan), who plays the role of a DJ. In this course of the movie Karan Johar takes you back to moments from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kal Ho Naa Ho multiple times. The central theme of the movie is love and romance and it revolves around Ayan (Ranbir) and Alizeh (Anushka). ADHM is a movie that belongs to Ranbir and Anushka completely. The characters have done justice to their roles and they look quite promising. Although you need to wait quite long too see Aishwarya and Fawad, but that’s okay, as Ranbir is the show stealer. The picturesque landscapes will leave you mesmerized. The soothing and refreshing music makes you fall in love with the movie over and over again. The expressions, the emotions, the soulful music and obviously the performance by Ranbir Kapoor will leave you mesmerized and also in tears if you are sensitive like us. The firsthalf of the film is quite lengthy and light and it’s only in the second part of the movie that catches your interest completely. The second part of the movie opens at the airport where Ayan meets Saba (Aishwarya) who plays the role of a ‘Shaayar’. The two share a really good bond and after returning Ayan finds his companion in Saba. Bound by the Karan Johar’s love stories Saba falls in love with Ayan who loves Alizeh. A heart-broken Ayan finds love or you can say lust in the arms of Saba. The sizzling chemistry between them is a master piece of direction that Karan has delivered. Emotions get more complicated in the second half when Alizeh and Ayan re-unite. Ayan and Alizeh enjoy their emotions of love and friendship at the same time. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is a composite and long love story. It is also indulgent yet relatable to situations we all have been through. Coming to the direction, Karan Johar does wonders as always.
Thumbs Up Moments
Karan Johar’s take on emotions, love and relationships is deep and is impressive in bits. The performances are outstanding with Ayan being the best of all. Ranbir’s responses and the sync in acting with his co-actors make his performance more appealing. Fawad Khan with his good looks and charm manages to impress us. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks are so damn hot and her moments with Ayan have intense sensuality and passion. Alizeh played by Anushka, is a role done complete justice to. The charming girl keeps us involved in the movie till the end. The cameos played by Shahrukh and DJ Alia Bhatt also add to the grace of the movie. The dialogue delivery and heavy soulful words add to the brownie points for the movie. On the whole, a well directed movie with amazing screenplay, awesome cinematography and heart melting music.
Thumbs Down Moments
The first of the movie is bit lengthy and doesn’t has much engaging plot. Lisa Haydon’s cameo is funny (boring) we must say and the actor makes you wonder why you are even trying if you cannot act. Imran Abbas hardly makes a difference with his appearance.
We would say, ADHM is a movie full of emotions, love and friendship and will leave you with a thought that love only happens once. As we say, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will strengthen your belief that ‘Pyar Ek Hi Baar Hota Hai'. ADHM is must watch for this weekend. Go out and enjoy the feeling of love.
