Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has all the classic elements that make up a Karan Johar movie. The beautiful locations, beautiful clothes and beautiful performances by Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai and Fawad Afzal Khan. But does the movie reflect this beauty?
The emotional turbulence in the movie starts when Ayan, played by Ranbir Kapoor, wants to be in a relationship with Alizeh, who's depicted by Anushka Sharma. These honest feelings are what make the movie worth a watch. The emotional weight make the gloss and glamour shine even brighter in this latest Karan Johar installment.
Manish Malhotra's costumes and Pritam's music are another noteworthy aspect of the flick. Praise aside, the curveball thrown into the last act of the movie may leave a bad taste in the audiences' memories. If you're a fan of romantic movies and a die-hard Karan Johar fan, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is still a watch. Controversies surrounding the movie aside, ADHM will be a good addition to the movie collections for the broken-hearted.
