Peace or passion? Love or friendship? Lust or obsession? Karan Johar is the magician who weaves the matters of heart into unforgettable cinema.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is the story of a lovable misfit Ayan (naam to suna hi hoga). From his Mere Baap ki Arzoo, read MBA, class to his mercenary girlfriend, he is living a life decided by others.
Anushka Sharma’s Alizeh Khan (and she is not a terrorist) is his liberation. They complete each other but they don’t know it. When a third enters this relationship, it falls apart.
Rahul, the boy, leaves Alizeh. Rahul, the man meets Saba (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). And that is what ADHM is all about — people and relationships coming of age.
Karan Johar deals with the complexities in relationships, struggling relationships and just the chaos of being in such relationships in his Diwali release 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.
As is evident from the film’s trailer, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma play close friends. But things go wrong when Fawad Khan returns in Anushka’s life, leaving Ranbir with no other option but to back out.
In the midst of such complex relationships, Ranbir comes across the gorgeous and charming Aishwarya Rai and falls for her. But what happens next?
It’s precisely this suspense why the viewers will be interested in watching the film. If everything looks so simple why is it a story of unrequited love? It is the element of suspense which is an instrumental way to keep the narrative’s engine fueled.
