Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has undoubtedly been the most talked about film of the year. But its journey - ever since its promos were released and a ban was levied on the Pakistani artistes following URI attacks – has been laden with difficulties.

Even though Ae Dil Hai Mushkil - which has Pakistani actor Fawad Khan playing a key role - was slammed after Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena clearly stated that it won’t permit the film’s release as the makers had roped in a Pakistani artiste, it finally hits the theatres today.

Much like his past projects, Karan Johar deals with the complexities in relationships, struggling relationships and just the chaos of being in such relationships in his much-awaited Diwali release too. Whether it is about the feeling of being in love or the attempts to struggle with unrequited love or the experience of being in agony-filled situations, the ace filmmaker has managed to get all of it in his film, at least that’s what the promos suggest.

As also evident from the film’s trailer, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma play close friends. But things go wrong when Fawad Khan returns in Anushka’s life, leaving Ranbir with no other option but to back out. In the midst of such complex relationships, Ranbir comes across the gorgeous and charming Aishwarya Rai and falls for her. But what happens next? It’s precisely this suspense why the viewers will be interested in watching the film. If everything looks so simple why is it a story of unrequited love? It is the element of suspense which is an instrumental way to keep the narrative’s engine fueled.

Whether it has been about the film’s promotions, social media buzz, stars’ passion or its soul-stirring music, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has been a clear winner so far. But will it be the highest-grossing film too? Will the film, which is grand in scale, also be powerful in terms of persuasive stories, enthralling characters and the impact of dialogues?

Divya Pal of News18 is inside the theater to get you all the answers.
