Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Review : Ranbir Kapoor steals the thunder from the two women
This week sees the release of two gigantic films in the form of SHIVAAY and AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL. Will the ‘divine intervention’ help the action packed SHIVAAY to outpower the mushy AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL or will it prove otherwise, only time will tell.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Review :
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil seems like more inspired from Fault in our stars and Kuch kuch hota hai.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Script:
The story is about Ayan (Ranbir Kapoor) and Alizeh (Anushka Sharma) Fawad Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachhan didn't have much to do with the role.
The free-sprited Alizeh (Anushka Sharma) meets a wealthy bachelor with his own private jet Ayan (Ranbir Kapoor) at a nightclub in London.
They dance raunchily and hook up briefly in the loft above the nightclub, but Alizeh writes him off swiftly because she claims he’s a lousy kisser.
Ayan doesn’t take that constructive criticism to heart, but they hit it off as best friends. Unfortunately for Ayan, Alizeh refuses to let him go beyond the proverbial first base with her. She holds on to that opinion until the end of the film, which is frustrating. Her belief that friends should never become lovers is exhausting for Ayan.
Ranbir Kapoor is like an adorable, angst-prone puppy. But he is thick-headed too. Being spurned multiple times by the same woman doesn’t make him any wiser and his relentless pursuit of Alizeh isn’t too convincing.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who plays an alluring poetess, her role doesn’t go beyond what you see in the trailer.
Also, loving Alizeh and Ayaan wasn’t instantaneous. It takes time to warm up to them. By the time you connect to them, Johar inserts an emotionally-manipulative, tragic twist to the entire plot.
Fawad Khan, isn’t given much heft to make his role special. His love story with Alizeh, which showed immense promise, seems to have been killed unceremoniously. What went wrong between Alizeh and his character is skimmed over and leaves you wanting more.
The endearing performances from the lead cast. Kapoor steals the thunder from the two women. His anguish and his propensity to wail when he’s dumped makes him immensely lovable.
Overall Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is a one-time watch. We at BollywoodGhanta rate it 2.3 Stars
