Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3.25 on 5 (Anushka All The Way)
A story about unrequited love – the shapes it takes, the ways it changes us and the exhilarating and often heartbreaking ride it takes us on. It is the journey of three characters, Ayan, Alizeh and Saba, as their lives intertwine and they navigate life, love and heartbreak.
Kjo films have always centred around relationships and emotions, which are woven together with larger than life opulence with music playing an integral role. #AeDilHaiMushkil also falls in the same space. It offers little in terms of story and fails to get the audience empathise or feel for the characters and events in the movie. KJo, who is known for extracting exceptional performances from his starcast, does the same with ADHM as well. The chemistry between Anushka & Ranbir is very authentic. But it’s Anushka who walks away with top honors, delivering a performance that doesn’t miss a beat. Chemistry is one thing in the movie that feels real and will certainly remind you of your best friends. ADHM is portrayal of modern-day relationships and KJo, the master story-teller has ensured to re-visit Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Na Ho & Dil To Pagal Hai and a dash of hollywood film: A Fault in Our Stars. The locations: London, Vienna, Paris and Lucknow sets the mood of platonic, passionate and unrequited love. Music by Pritam is already a superhit and the background score is equally good and helps the film. #AeDilHaiMushkil is for lovers and all those who believes in the power of it and has been through a heartbreak or even close to it.
PDF Verdict: ADHM is high on cinematography & melodrama but low on realism.
