The sprightly Anushka Sharma bounces upon a wealthy bachelor who owns a private jet. She meets this bachelor who is Ranbir Kapoor, in London. They enjoy in the nightclub but Anushka stamps him just as a friend. Her belief that friends cannot be lovers is something too much to take for Ranbir. He tries his best to convince her. And there is Aishwarya Rai as the alluring poetess in the film. How she gets into Ranbir’s life and what happens to the love angle of Ranbir and Anushka forms the rest of the film.

Star Performances

As per reviews Ranbir Kapoor has been given good rating for his performance. One will not be surprised if Ranbir gets an award for his outstanding performance as the anguished young guy in this film. Anushka Sharma is one spontaneous actress and she has come out with another noteworthy performance. Credit should also go the make-up department for making her look amazing in the movie. She also carries herself well in the movie. And as for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan she has stolen her hearts right from the trailers. She has essayed her role with utter conviction. Fawad Khan is also equally competent.


Director Karan Johar has proven it again that he is one of the super talented directors when it comes to romantic films. Critics say that the writing and execution of the movie deserve special mention. The movie doesn’t stick to a specific template and is quite bold.           

Critics after watching the movie say that it is connected to Karan Johar’s own venture Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Hollywood film A Fault In Our Stars.

What’s there?

  • Cinematography of Anil Mehta is stunning. The movie has been shot in Europe and England and the cinematographer has brought before our eyes the various dimensions with zeal.
  • Pritam’s music is soothing and is already topping the charts. And I also happened to listen to a couple of songs including the title track and Bulleya and I second the critics’ review.
  • The production values are outstanding.   
  • Editing of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is par excellence.
  • The dialogues are awesome.

What’s not there?

  • The relationship between Fawad Khan and Anushka Sharma could have been explored better.
  • Ranbir's unyielding pursuit of Anushka may test one's patience sometimes. 


The stunning performances of the lead cast make Ae Dil Hai Mushkil a one-time watch film.
