Movie Info

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is a story about love--the shapes it takes, the ways it changes us and the exhilarating and often terrifying ride it takes us on. It is the journey of two characters, Alizeh and Ayan as they navigate life, love and heartbreak--often together and sometimes apart. Alizeh is a fiercely independent girl, still reeling from the effects of the collapse of her relationship with a former love. Ayan is a straight-edged, preppy boy, with no remarkable experience in love or heartbreak, but nurturing a hidden desire to sing. They meet one night in New York, and a mutually life-changing bond forms between them, that is ridden with humor, angst and a shared love of everything Bollywood. As they steer through life, their encounters and experiences shape their understanding of life, passion, love--and what it truly means to have a soulmate. How Alizeh and Ayan, two people who connected and separated over love, find closure in the romantic and unromantic forms the crux of the film.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil offers little in terms of story and fails to get the audience empathise or feel for the characters and events in the movie. What it does offer is brilliance in the name of Ranbir and Anushka.

Jun 4, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Anushka Sharma plays the most well-rounded character with abandon; she's remarkable. Ranbir's portrayal of the clumsy, turned-down one-sided lover is heartbreaking; his honesty comes through yet again.

The very fact that this film successfully portrays love and its various facets with such deftness and control is its true success
