I realized that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is actually the first film directed by Karan Johar that I have seen on the big screen. Sure, I've seen Johar/Dharma productions, like Kapoor and Sons, on the big screen in the two plus years that I've been watching Indian cinema, but this is the first totally Karan Johar film. I went to the first day, first show, at my local theater and they were NOT prepared for the Diwali crowds. The theater was pretty full, and there was a long line at the ticket window. Interestingly, I was not the only non-Desi there. There were two women who were fans of Aish from Bride & Prejudice, but didn't even know what the title of the film meant or who SRK is. (!!!) This will be as spoiler free a review as I can make it. We know the film is about unrequited love. If you think about it, many of Karan Johar's films are about unrequited love, be it from a lover or a parent.
