IMDB: Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016) - IMDB
IMDB Rating: 5.8
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 4.2
Inconsistent tonality, uneven pacing, and far too many self-referential winks dilute this tale of unrequited love before it even has a chance to fully develop.
The Guardian -
What's odd is that the movie itself turns out not to be some incendiary provocation, but squarely Bollywood trad, a globetrotting weepie unlikely to offend anyone but the most entrenched.
Everything leads to a third-act twist that is absurdly shameless, even by Bollywood standards. Unfortunately, Johar doesn't appear to have intended it as another joke.
The Hollywood Reporter -
Despite the iffy script, two of the film's performances pack a punch.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)
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.
