And as promised just an hour ago, Dharma Productions dropped a full one minute and a half teaser of Karan Johar‘s latest directorial project Ae Dil Hai Mushkil [literal trans. Oh the Heart is Difficult].
*Check it out after the jump—>
I personally found this teaser to do exactly what it was created to do— Make me want more. It certainly feels like an emotional journey and the teaser teases the title quite well. For the phrase can deviate into several concepts within the imagination but this does not seem to be use its words in jest, lazily or lightly.
At the very end, Aayan says, “There is nothing like the power of unrequited love,” and goes on to say that with such love, it isn’t shared but experienced solely. Completely alone. So much can be said about that one line but I look forward to Aayan journeying to this realization. For at times, there are sentiments we understand and recognize immediately and intuitively but take us much longer to reconcile, accept and embrace. And unrequited love can certainly damage great potential if not dealt with properly.
From what we see, he appears to have intense relationships with both women, not to mention the other entanglements our ladies find themselves [Oh hello there, Mr. Fawad Khan!] One thing I found quite interesting about the connections within this snippet is while there are misty eyes and companionship laughter or heady and volatile moments, I didn’t spy much traditional filmy romance.
After seeing this, I can say I’ll be keeping tabs on this one. Until Diwali, that is.
Dharma Productions has been on a roll with back to back intriguing releases and a current dance tour with Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra, stars of the upcoming release Baar Baar Dekho. And while I am interested in that time boggling feature as well, what has caught my eye more is the teaser for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Released earlier today were the first three poster stills for the film that claims to encompass love, passion and intense friendship.
Karan Johar will helm this film three years after indie submission Bombay Talkies and I am personally getting a strong Khabi Alvida Na Kehna vibe from the project. In my book, that’s a good thing because hopefully this story will be as emotionally complicated as its title vaguely suggests.
The film is set for a Diwali premiere but the production house has promised yet another sneak peek tomorrow…
Guess we’ll just have to wait and watch.
Anticipation can be exhilarating and waiting for this film has been just that. For with every additional chunk of news concerning this film has just made me want more. The promotion for this film has been going on for awhile, but it has spread far enough that in the end, it’s been just enough, right when I needed it. And unlike most promotional material, I was just as excited as the first time, right up until it’s premiere.
