Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Full Summary Part 7: The Part With the Friendly Appearance

Okay, I need to hurry through this to be finished by Shahrukh Week, starting on Wednesday (this time-posts on Shahrukh movies in which he mentors young women!).  I am all the way past the Interval of ADHM, and my posts are slowly increasing in length, so I think I should be able to finish this thing off soon.

Box Office: Rock On 2 Does Terribly, Not Because of Demonetization, But Because It Is Terrible!

Woot!  Global box office is out!  Which is completely unaffected by the demonetization of India.  Which means the Rock On 2 producer’s arguments that it is only doing badly because people can’t buy tickets don’t hold up at all.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Full Summary Part 4: Including the Missing Song!!!

Part 4!  I am just zipping along!  Sort of!  Not really!  But to be fair, I am also doing really short posts.  I could probably have knocked this whole thing out in 4, if I did longer lengths.  But then I would get all tired and resentful and wouldn’t have the energy to post about anything else.  So, part 4, still not up to Interval! (part 1 here, part 2 here, part 3 here)

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Detailed Summary Part 2 of ???: Lisa Haydon is the Best!!!

I saw ADHM for the second time last night and, just as I suspected, I enjoyed it much more on a second watch, when I knew what was going to happen and I could focus on just appreciating how they built it up.  And this also means I have a much clearer memory of the details, and can come back to my full summary in multiple parts, all renewed and refreshed!

Deleted Song from ADHM released! But Where’s the Other One?

Just like Happy New Year and “Sharaabi” or Dilwale and “Premika”, Karan Johar is keeping the buzz going and celebrating a successful first week of ADHM by releasing another song.  But he must be sitting on another song video, because this is not the one I was waiting for!

Discussion of ADHM by Someone Smarter Than Me (also Box Office)

You know I shouldn’t be your primary source for Indian political and other hard news, right?  Because I don’t have a strong background in that, and more importantly, I’m not a journalist.  If anything, I’m an analyst.  I take news other people have already reported and put it together in interesting ways.  Anyway, moviemavengal just tweeted me an article that does all the hard news work of the ADHM protests for me.  Check out this link.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Full Summary!!! Part 1 of ?

I’m just assuming this is going to turn into multiple parts.  Shivaay I’m going to knock out in one looooooooooong post, but this movie is a lot more interesting than that one.  If you aren’t down for a detailed shot by shot moment by moment discussion, you can check out my quick spoiler review and No Spoilers review I already wrote for ADHM.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil NO SPOILERS Review

I put up my Spoilers review first, for once, because I wanted a place for people who had already seen the movie to discuss it.  But now it’s time for a review for people who haven’t seen the movie yet, and are curious what other people think about it.  But NO SPOILERS.  Because the plot is very carefully constructed to build point to point, and if you do decide to see the movie, you should try to go in fresh.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil SPOILER Review: Seriously, Don’t Read if You Haven’t Seen, the Ending Should Surprise You

Normally I’m not that careful about spoilers on this blog.  I flag them when I put them into a post, I put up spoiler and non-spoiler reviews, but I don’t care if you read the spoiler review before you see the movie, or if you put a spoil in a comment, or whatever.  However, in this case, I’d like to try to keep the experience that Karan carefully crafted for the audience.  So I’m putting up this review early, so everyone who has seen it has a place to think about and talk about the film as a whole.  And then the other review will be for people who haven’t seen the movie yet, but are planning to.

New ADHM and DEAR ZINDAGI Trailers!!!!

So much more excited about the Dear Zindagi trailer!  Partly because it is just the second one, whereas ADHM is now on, what, the 513th trailer?  Remember how excited I was back when there were just a couple ADHM trailers?  Yeah, that’s worn off by now.
