ADHM screen grab

When Karan Johar makes a movie, he makes it with all his heart. From the look of the just-released trailer of his latest directorial offering, "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil," the film promises to strike a chord with anyone who has ever been in love, seen love or felt love. Such is the magic of his craft.

An excited Johar shared the  trailer of his upcoming film with his followers on his social media pages. Incidentally, two of his main stars of the film, Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, do not have social media accounts. Making up for that is a very social media-savvy Anushka Sharma who posts regular updates all across her social media platforms. Sharma too shared the trailer link with her fans and followers with big love:

The trailer is everything and more than fans were anticipating after watching the teaser and songs. It is not surprising that the trailer is peppered with cheesy yet sweet and memorable one-liners. The trailer begins with Kapoor stating, "Love teda hai, lekin uss tede love mein bhi sukoon paana bass kuchh logon ko aata hai," which roughly translates to "Love is twisted, but very few know how to enjoy or seek relief in the twistedness of love."

Then Johar gives you a sneak peak of what is in store — from a grand Holi celebration to a grander wedding set complete with lots of henna scenes and dancing, and finally Sharma dancing in quintessential Bollywood style draped in gorgeous chiffon saris in snow-clad mountains!

Sharma has her share of effective one-liners. Don't miss the "Pyaar mein junoon hai, dosti mein sukoon hai" dialogue to Kapoor, where she seems to be emphasizing the importance of friendship by saying that "love is insanity and friendship relief."

There is Sharma's love-interest, Fawad Khan, who is introduced by her as "meri tabahi," or her destruction. 

An animated Kapoor on the other hand has used an interesting analogy to define love: "Kissi ne kabhi apko chaanta mara hai? Uss chaante ko ishq kahte hain" (Have you ever been slapped? That slap is love).

Then there is the gorgeous Bachchan. She is nothing short of a diva in the trailer: She's smart, she's flirty, and she is winking. Adding to her beauty is her sensual side saying, "Main kissi ki zaroorat nahi; khwahish ban na chahti hoon." (I don't want to be someone's need; I want to be someone's desire). She plays a poet in the film and is also seen mouthing immortal lines of famous Urdu poet, Faiz, such as "Mujhse pahli si mohabbat mere mahboob na maang." (Don't ask me for my love like yesterday).

Finally there is a line which gives away the much-speculated plot of unrequited love: "Asaan hai kya aisi mohabbat karna jiske badle mohabbat na mile?" (Is it easy to love when you know it's not going to be reciprocated)? This line and the overall feels of the trailer are making us wish for Oct. 28 to come already!
