Yesterday I watched Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and you know what? I enjoyed it. No, I ‘m not going to be all trendy and bash the movie and Karan Johar, because I really, truly enjoyed it.
The thing is, I don’t go for a movie with any other expectation other than to relax, except if I consciously decide to watch a movie like “Pink”.
I loved the songs and the craziness! Ranbir’s character Aayan loves to cuddle all the time. So what? There are teddy bear guys like that in real life and you would be so lucky to have someone like that in your life.
Anushka Sharma’s character shoots her mouth off. Maybe we are not yet ready for a girl making fun of the way a guy kisses, but I loved the way she acts so care a damn honest.
Ash looks Hot! And all of you who want to say, “Oh but she has Mickey Contactor to get her in shape!”, truth is she has got back into shape and is looking even more gorgeous than ever. There is a maturity about her that wasn’t there before.
And as for the falling in and out of love or lust at the drop of a hat, what’s wrong with that? We accept it in “Friends” and “Sex in the City” and other such firang stuff, so why not here? And don’t give me that “oh but we are Indians”, bullshit. Or is it that we’d rather accept rape in out moves than consensual sex? I think it’s time we grew up.
Coming to the unrequited love part, well, life doesn’t always come with happy endings. So that’s fine. If hearts didn’t break, there’d be no stories.
The only jarring note really, was the ending. It looks like the plot ran way by itself and they didn’t know how to tie the bow. It should have been left untied. Ideally the movie should have ended when Fawad and Ranbir meet again accidentally in London. But I suppose we are not yet ready for untied bows either.
