"Ek tarfa pyar ki taqat hi kuch aur hoti hai ... auron ke rishton ki tarah yeh do logon mein nahi bat'ti ... sirf mera haq hai ispe"

Primarily encompassing the premise of the film is this deeply rooted meaningful dialogue, powerfully strengthening the mightiness of one sided love, the plight of which is unmatched and the unforgiving heart-wrenching pain of whose is relentless, yet the power of which, is rather seemless.
While the heart-wrenching pain of that unattainable love is felt by the audience, the film in terms of the viewership is a tragic saga of these three sentimental and emotionally exhausting characters.
It treads on the thin line of friendship, love and lust, wherein it puts forth the dilemma in terms of the distinguished love and lust. What the protagonist considered friendship wasn’t true, and the moment he realises it to be true love, is when he realizes the hollowness of life without it. As a result of rejection and sheer dejection, Ayaan tries to find consolation in lust while running away from his burning desire of love. This unfulfilled love and its pain is what typically drives Ayaan to be the famous rockstar, which is more than just clichéd and a hackneyed plot in this portion of the script.
With dialogues such as ‘Pyaar mein toh junoon hai,par dosti mein sukoon hai’, it showcases the overpowering love of friendship over that of two lovers. The story teaches you to live your life, leaving behind your inhibitions, to love with your heart and soul and be unrepentant if the love is unreciprocated.
The storytelling conveys the latent pain and longing for love of the writer, which is hidden under the guise of the so called ‘true’ friendship. The story would find audience with different perspectives. While some would differ on account of their understanding of the core theme of the movie which plays on the sentiments of true love where the lover is wriggling in pain to get his soul mate, who he is not ready to forgo in guise of true friendship, the others might just relate to it at a great extent.

Ae dil hai mushkil projects a failed lover whose sole aim is to find solace in the arms of his soulmate. The theme can be summarized in the lyrics of the song of the movie Bulleya; Meri rooh ka parinda phadphadaye [The bird of my soul writhes] Lekin sukoon ka jazeera mil na paaye [But it is unable to find the island of peace] Main ki karaan? [What should I do?]Main ki karaan?
From London to Lucknow, from Paris to ‘unusually’ Vienna, the chosen locations are extremely exquisite and superlatively tasteful.
Having said so, what couldn’t go unnoticed and ought to be mentioned is the acting of each and every actor throughout the film. The leads, Ranbir , Anushka and Aishwarya have done complete justice to their respective roles. Anushka Sharma, portraying the character of a vivacious bubbly enthusiastic girl, loaded with zeal and optimism in life, yet witnessing her life’s weakness when her life comes full circle the moment she sees her long lost love. Aishwarya doesn’t fail to impress each and every time she shows on screen with her mesmerizing presence.
Ranbir’s sporadic arrival in the films off late had already created a stir amongst the audience, and considering this film and his acting as a moping lover, I would definitely say his is a performance worth remembering.
The songs are melodious, lyrically beautiful and extremely meaningful, my favourite amongst them, being ‘Bulleya’. The director Karan Johar’s creativity and direction seems absolutely flawless and worth the eulogy.
He has tried to portray the passion in love, capturing the emotions of the eternal love while doing it at an amazingly impressive scale.
I would give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
