Ae Dil Hai Mushkil REVIEW- Cliche Bollywood Story?

A story of unrequited love. Yearning for love; albeit lost and dumbfounded. 

Every human being on this planet yearns for love, companionship, a need to be needed. A wanting to be wanted. But above all that we seek a bond. A bond which only one other person in this world will ever understand and love, flaws and all.

PLOT: This story begins with  Ayan (Ranbir Kapoor) having an interview about love which introduces the cliche love story of Ayan meeting Alizeh (Anushka Sharma) whom is already heart broken over Ali (Fawad Khan) who ditched her and moved onto another. Ayan is slowly beginning to fall for Alizeh who then bumps into Ali and they get married. Ayan meets Saba (Aishwarya Rai), a poet who becomes his rebound girl and who leaves their relationship after falling for Ayan who is still besotted for Alizeh. Also, there is a guest appearance of Shahrukh Khan who is Saba's ex husband.

Fast forward two years, Ayan follows his singing career which leads to super stardom and bumps into Ali who informs Ayan that he is now divorced from Alizeh. Ayan finds Alizeh and she has stage four cancer and is dying. The story ends with Ayan completing his interview and singing the beautiful famous song "channa mereya mereya channa mereya mereya".

Analysis: I found this film very similiar to Ranbir Kapoor's 'Rockstar' in which he must truly feel heartbreak to be successful in his bid to becoming remotely famous. Alas, his unrequited love gets married to another and has a terminal illness which is very similiar to this film. However, I love the humour in Ranbir's character in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, it is relatable and endearing. He has a huge charm appeal in this film which adds to his emotional persona.

Anushka's role as his love interest is mediocre, I don't think her acting was amazing as well Aishwarya. She played a good seductress but again, quite mediocre.

Overall, I would say I loved Ranbir's acting and the cameo scene of Shahrukh Khan which expectedly, did cause an excited hubbub in the cinema. I liked this film and cannot fault Karan Johar's ability to cause one to cry numerous times whenever watching one of his films. I cried like a baby and it is definitely a film to watch for all my Bollywood fans or film fanatics!
