Ae Dil Hai Mushkil - Trailer Review


Trailer Appeal - 2/5 | Release date: 28th Oct 2016

KJo loved geometry in his school. That's why makes love triangles, quadrilaterals and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil looks like a Pentagon. Don't expect anything new in the plot except people oscillating between Fraandship-louuuv-Fraandship-louuuv-Fraandship

Ranbir Kapoor looks totally wasted in the film and not pushing his boundaries. His character looks no different from Bachna Ae Haseeno, Ye Jawani hai Deewani and Roy. Anushka Sharma getting inspired by Rani Mukerjee and shedding copious tears (again a trademark of KJo films). In Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, cumulative tear count was 11.5 gallons which is still a world record. 

For a change, Aishwarya Rai looks amazing in the film. Her character is intriguing and I loved her dialogue "Main kisi ki jaroorat nahi khwahish banna chahti hoon". She looks sensual and drop dead gorgeous. Looks like the same Aish which came in Pepsi commercial 2 centuries back. Wow! Great she found her mojo back. It was audacious for KJo to cast her in a role like that which usually goes to Nargis Fakhri. 

Fawad Khan looks good, though I doubt he has too much screen presence. SRK wasn't shown in trailer but has a cameo presence. Let's see how much of crowd pull he generates with his brand name attached. 

Song released till now "Ae dil hai mushkil" and "Bulleya" by Pritam are awesome. Music album might be a bigger hit than film. 

It is scheduled for release on 28 October 2016 on the Diwali weekend. Good luck KJo and hope it was just a poorly made trailer and you have something up your sleeves to wow us. Though, it is quite an optimistic ask!
