Mausam Movie Review



Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
Pankaj Kapur's 'Mausam' is an unfortunate mess of a movie about a pair of young lovers who spend more time apart than together, because they don't know how or where to reach one another when they're repeatedly separated. To be entirely fair, 'Mausam' isn't without its moments. The film's first 30 minutes are fresh and enjoyable. I'm going with two out of five for director Pankaj Kapur's 'Mausam'. As you leave the hall exhausted from the sheer length of this misguided enterprise, you cannot help but note that despite its many flaws, this is a noble failure. The film doesn't work, but not for lack of trying.

MAUSAM has an old-world charm, no two opinions about it however the transition from Season 1 [in Punjab] to Season 2 [in Scotland] seems most unreal. Unfortunately, MAUSAM suffers for the very reason that one may have assumed would be its biggest strength -- writing. The screenplay, to put it bluntly, is unengaging and what makes it worse is the fact that it seems like a never-ending saga. The film just goes on and on and on, moving from one city/country to another, till the viewer gets jetlagged and exhausted by watching this saga unfold on screen. With a running time of close to 3 hours, MAUSAM has a few sequences that do stand out, but the weak script blows the efforts away. Shahid Kapoor surpasses all his previous performances.On the whole, MAUSAM is a colossal disappointment!

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:TimesOfIndia
Yes, the allure of the first half of Mausam lies in the vintage love story which proceeds through unsaid words, unexpressed feelings, stolen glances and lots of melody (Pritam Singh). The affair which begins in 1992, before the demolition of the Babri mosque has an oriental charm to it and makes for some moments of great viewing.But in second half Pankaj Kapur seems to lose his grip, at least partially, on the story which crosses continents and slips on the natural charm and high emotional quotient that made the first half eminently watchable. Don't be dissuaded however, for Mausam has lots to offer to the viewer who doesn't mind his cinema languorous, laid back and moody, with loads of beauty. The film tries to strike a balance between art and mainstream cinema and succeeds partially.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Raja Sen Site:Rediff
Mausam starts off significantly fresh, making up for slightly overdone cutesiness with heart and flavour. The setting is enchanting and real, the characters are likable, the supporting cast stays pretty solid throughout, and Shahid revs up the energy while his classically gorgeous heroine Sonam Kapoor does what she does best, skipping around looking breathtaking. It is when the film changes gear from romcom to melodrama that both Kapur and his son struggle, going from light and likable to irritating and implausible.‘But no lovely little nuance could forgive Mausam its preposterous bad-action-movie climax, completely bringing the guillotine down on the already too-long film. As manipulative masala tearjerkers go, it's a film that tries relatively earnestly and certainly one that occasionally looks striking, but disappoints overall.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Saibal Chatterjee Site:NDTV
Mausam is nowhere near flawless. Its first half is visually scrumptious and eminently watchable; the second is a touch erratic and unconvincing. Yet Kapur’s well-honed sensibility serves to ensure that the film never loses its grip on its heart even when its narrative flow borders on the dreary. Mausam is overlong and tends to meander rather listlessly in parts, but the debutant director deserves plaudits for daring to put a mighty new spin on his cross-community love saga that spans across several tumultuous decades.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Komal Nahata Site:Koimoi
What’s Good: The music; the performances of the lead actors.What’s Bad: The slow pace of the drama; the inclusion of too many events in the film; lack of emotional appeal; too many coincidences in the lives of Shahid and Sonam.Verdict: Mausam lacks the heart-warming quality of a love story. However, it will do above-average business at the box-office. Watch it for the songs and the performances of Shahid and Sonam.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Martin D Souza Site:Glamsham
I feel, Pankaj Kapoor has tried to mix in too many turbulent elements of the past, intersperse them and in the process has ended up burning his fingers. Kapoor has linked events of Operation Blue Star, trouble in the Kashmir Valley, Ayodhya and the bringing down of the Babri Masjid, Bombay Bomb Blasts, Twin Tower strike in New York and Godhra in Ahmedabad. Through these events he links a love story that stands the test of time. Like an overcooked dish, MAUSAM, towards the end leaves a soggy taste in your mouth. Sad. Because as a director, Pankaj Kapoor has shown his class. It's just that he was playing with too many ideas in one go. Give him time and he will be one of our best.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Supergoodmovies Site:SuperGoodMovies
The first thing that comes to my mind after watching Mausam was that why on earth did it take so much time to complete. Coming to how it is, well you do not expect this Khichdi from a veteran like Pankaj Kapur.Pankaj Kapur in his directorial debut tries to tell a beautiful love story but if only he would have stuck to that, the film would have been a better experience. He touches the Kashmir, Mumbai, Ahemadabad riots and even the 9/11 twin tower blast in America but only from the surface. The plot was excellent only if the focus was maintained. Though the first half is still watchable, the second merely disappoints and the climax is outright stupid.

  7. yes if taran adarsh said mausam is bad means the movie is good...

  8. its just difficult for critics to understand the merging of commercial and art cinema... pankaj kapur is brilliant and i am sure Mausam is too, its being misunderstood by the critics...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Taran Adash is great critic and I think he knows very well that which movie is going to do a marvelous business..whenever Taran Adarsh give movies 3 or 4 stars then that particular movie does a record breaking business..BODYGUARD is the latest example..(Taran had given bodyguard 4.5 stars and the movie has broken many records and still its doing well)..On the other hand almost all critics had given bodyguard 1.5 star or 2 stars..If a movie is doing a huge business then its good but if its not doing good business and becomes a flop or a disaster then whatever claim u make but the result matters..Always check Taran Adarsh reviews on site BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA and then check the movie business..U will understand why Iam saying all this..

  13. mausam is a movie that comes once in decade.its purely mere work of art and brilliant cinema.but people have changed their tastes.they are liking remakes of stupid south indian movies which has nothing realistic to offer but all masala entertaiment with unrelistic actions and scripts that have got no storyline,bodygurad is the best example.but as said,"only a diamond merchant knows the worthiness of a diamond' same way only talented people can get the real taste of such cinemas.

  15. @ Praveen, Taran gives a film 4 stars when he thinks it will be a hit. But that should not be criteria for a critic. He should only tell us if the film is good or bad. Bodyguard and Ready did great business but that doesn't mean they were great movies. If they made more money than a 3 Idiots or Munna bhai or DDLJ that doesn't mean they r better films. All the Rajinikanth films nowadays r guaranteed superhits that doesn't mean all his films r worthy of 4=5 stars if u just judge them for cinematic excellence...

  35. There should be critics for critics because there are several movies which were not given good reviews by several critics but still were very nice,and done good business.Are we Indians idiot,try to judge movies by yourself,don't go for critics who give nonsense analysis,sometimes they give funny angle of their own....all rubbish,and at time reviews are biased eehhhh heavily biased....APNI AKAL LAGAO DIKHAWE PE MAT JAO

  36. prints and other promoting strategy. Taran Adarsh giving Critics do get paid.. they do act as promoters of the movie for the movies they get paid to. Taran Adarsh gave 4+ for Bodyguard, thats nonsense.. Its true that Movie made good money based on Salman's power but movie wasnt good. Also, the movie made money based on more number of higher raiting should be one of movie promoting strategy.

  38. Critics didn't get paid this time.

    Wait for Ra-One, everyone will give good ratings just like for MNIK

    Mausam will be better than all the Gay Johar, SRK and Yashraj films.

    ReplyDelete
  63. This is my personal view (Though I am huge Shahid fan but I’ve tried to keep it unbiased). I totally loved the feel of the movie with some strange good feeling, which asks for more. This movie is perfect for those who love the feeling of love, people who are romantics at heart. People who understand what it is to feel a movie would definitely love the movie. Don’t go by the reviews because it totally depends on a person, as this one’s a different movie. It is one of its kind. See it for your own and decide, it may change your perception of love or just leave you with some sweet moments. Go watch the movie with your loved one (true love) and you certainly won’t be disappointed.

  67. I agree with riju1212 because i usually follow his reviews, but when he rated a film i waited the whole year for i knew he was wrong... and he was completely wrong! 2 stars is NOT the deserving review for this film. it deserves 4 or 4.5

    ReplyDelete
  68. Mausam is awesome...and it beyond the reach of the critics like taran adarsh...and to be true Bodyguard sucks big time...and was awarded 4 stars..Taran is out of his mind,,,.

  69. flop of the decade

    ReplyDelete
  70. mausam is a beautiful combination of art and real cinema making! it may not be a commercial cinema with no item numbers...but it definitely is a movie with true emotional touch and a saga which offsets from different time eras. a movie different from the commercial mainstream cinema, which may not be a blockbuster, but a movie which has touched the hearts of many!

    its a pity that people have forgot the emotional touch and novel-movie structure cinema these days.

    hats off to the makers of the movie. keep up the great work. the movie was a treat. =)

    ReplyDelete
  71. mausam is a beautifully made movie. if you love romantic pure love story movies, dont miss mausam!

    its a different movie, not the usual kinds which come nowadays. it is a true saga which comes once in a decade.

    it is a movie which shows how true love never dies despite of time gap. it shows the reuniting of two people who have faced so many challenges of the world disasters.

    it is not a shallow movie, not a romantic comedy, not jus a teenage love story, not a college romance.

    its a deep movie with true love emotion.

    people rating it 2 are shallow! they are only being critical on the basis of mainsteam cinema.
    the dont understnd real cinema making, which is hatke from the mainstream kinds.
    taran adarsh and others may be good critics but judged these movie in a business and mainstream commercial manner. and this movie is notbusiness or mainstream commercial! it is a masterpiece! an art work!

    beautifully made!!!
