Ajay Devgn's “Shivaay” and Karan Johar's “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” finally hit the silver screens today after much hullabaloo.
The release of ADHM was in trouble when the producers’ association, theatre owners and MNS workers demanded a ban on the film. However, Karan offered to donate Rs 5 crore to the army welfare fund and managed to get the release back on track.
On the other hand, “Shivaay” has been in buzz for showcasing scenic locales of Bulgaria, Mussoorie and Hyderabad and portraying Ajay a larger-than-life superhero.
Now, let’s see how audience has reacted on micro-blogging site Twitter after watching these films on big screens.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Saw Ae Dil Hai mushkil. Ranbir Kapoor is freaking amazing. @AnushkaSharma is killer. Aishwarya never looked so beautiful! Well made movie!— Kamran Musstafa (@kami3012) October 27, 2016
Ajay Devgn managed to impress all with his jaw dropping performance in the film. But, the story line is not so appealing. “Shivaay” is not the light, fun, crackerjack Diwali film you'd like to sit through this festive season.
On the other hand, KJo’s "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is clearly a multiplex film which portrays the story of love, friendship and breakups. The film gets full marks for its locations and actors, especially Ranbir for his intensity.
But, if you are a Fawad Khan fan, then his meager presence and sketchy role would infuriate you.
Both the films have released in almost 3000 screens and with the way the films are making a buzz among the audience, both the films are expected to post good figures at the box-office in opening Diwali weekend.
