Multiplex owners in four states have refused to release the film after right-wing groups demanded a ban on ADHM because it featured Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

In the end, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had brokered an ‘extortion deal’ worth Rs 5 crore between Karan and the militant outfit MNS, headed by Raj Thackeray.

It’s still the first day first show and not much has been written about the film. But in one of the first reviews, Gulf News reported, “Kapoor steals the thunder from the two women. His anguish and his propensity to wail when he’s dumped makes him immensely lovable. Fawad Khan, who is written on the credit rolls as “special appearance” isn’t given much heft to make his role special. His love story with Alizeh, which showed immense promise, seems to have been killed unceremoniously. Reserve this for a one-time watch.”

A short review by Indian Express’ said, “Rahul, the boy, leaves Alizeh. Rahul, the man meets Saba (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). And that is what ADHM is all about — people and relationships coming of age. The chemistry of all the couples is palpable, so is the hurt. Love comes in all shapes and sizes — sometimes it comes with violins, sometimes it shows you the middle finger. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is the latter, maybe that is why it feels so real.”

Twitter users, meanwhile, have been posting their feelings about ADHM from inside theatres.
