Movie Info

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is a story about love--the shapes it takes, the ways it changes us and the exhilarating and often terrifying ride it takes us on. It is the journey of two characters, Alizeh and Ayan as they navigate life, love and heartbreak--often together and sometimes apart. Alizeh is a fiercely independent girl, still reeling from the effects of the collapse of her relationship with a former love. Ayan is a straight-edged, preppy boy, with no remarkable experience in love or heartbreak, but nurturing a hidden desire to sing. They meet one night in New York, and a mutually life-changing bond forms between them, that is ridden with humor, angst and a shared love of everything Bollywood. As they steer through life, their encounters and experiences shape their understanding of life, passion, love--and what it truly means to have a soulmate. How Alizeh and Ayan, two people who connected and separated over love, find closure in the romantic and unromantic forms the crux of the film.

Everyone's solid work gets undone by a clumsily handled plot turn that suggests a failure of nerve around the central relationship.

...after a while I lost interest in its rigmarole of relationships, the many datings and matings, break-ups and patch-ups, marriages, divorces, friendships...
