Thursday, January 26

Cost: Free
The story of two characters, Alizeh and Ayan, as they navigate life, love and heartbreak.

India | 158 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Karan Johar

It is the journey of two characters, Alizeh and Ayan as they navigate life, love and heartbreak--often together and sometimes apart. Alizeh is a fiercely independent girl, still reeling from the effects of the collapse of her relationship with a former love. Ayan is a straight-edged, preppy boy, with no remarkable experience in love or heartbreak, but nurturing a hidden desire to sing. They meet one night in New York, and a mutually life-changing bond forms between them, that is ridden with humor, angst and a shared love of everything Bollywood. (Rotten Tomatoes, abridged)

"[Director Karan Johan]'s unabashed preference of style (often over substance) and lavishness over logic has come to define his brand of cinema, so much so that audiences not only let him get away with it, but even look forward to his inflated-in-every-way productions by now." - Anisha Jhaveri (Indiewire)
