Romantics across the world, rejoice! After breaking the internet with an enticing teaser, smashing charts with the title track ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, and the super hit ‘Bulleya’ making it to everyone’s playlist, we now have another reason to do it all over again. The trailer of Karan Johar’s much awaited love story – AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL – is finally out and has already raked in nearly 100,000 hits on YouTube within an hour of release!
Bollywood’s much awaited Diwali film of the year ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, with the exciting ensemble cast of Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan, promises a journey of friendship, heartbreak and love.
The film, written and directed by Karan Johar, follows the story of Ayan (Ranbir Kapoor), Alizeh (Anushka Sharma) and the entangled romance with the characters of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (Saba) and Fawad Khan. The keen eye of the director has made sure that every frame of the film — from beginning to the end —comes across as the perfect ode to music, mesmerizing audiences with picturesque locations in the UK and Europe and engulfing audiences through a whirlwind of emotions, with trademark Karan Johar panache.
If Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’s title track introduced us to unrequited love the way only Karan Johar can, its trailer dropped us in a vat of passion and coated us in love. The film’s title track by Arjit Singh has become the heartbreak song of the year while the sufi-rock number Bulleya has particularly caught attention for highlighting the crackling chemistry between Ranbir and Aishwarya.
With all the usual hit elements ticked, the refreshingly eclectic pairing is an added bonus and is expected to steal the show yet again with this film. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil personifies a new age relationship, the sort of contemporary romantic relationship never seen before on Indian celluloid.
Here are the reactions from the major press across India:
Times of India: Stunning spectacle of a trailer!
Filmfare: It’s vibrant, its peppy, intense and all things love!
Miss Malani: We can’t wait to see the film that Karan Johar has made now!
The ultimate Diwali film of the year, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil releases nationwide in cinemas through Fox Star Studios on 28th October. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is sure to light up your Diwali with love!
