First things first: Mausam is a visual treat… it’s one of those rare movies which you must watch on the big screen to soak in the splendor. The village scenes will make you squirm for living in dust laden cities, and the way the foreign locales have been handled by director Pankaj Kapur, lend a new charm to the old wine in new bottle. When you have stupid rom-coms being shot on foreign locales, films like Mausam really bring in the awe-some quite literally… the last time it happened was in Jab We Met maybe.
Now lets come to the story. It’s good, could have been better! Simply speaking, post interval, the meetings and miss-ups amongst the protagonists, might get to you a little more than expected, but then again it’s all a part of a well laid out script, which you are bound to like overall. The music is melodious, and surely you will enjoy the choreography and how the songs mix up well with the movie. As far as the performances are concerned, all are impressive, including the style diva Sonam Kapoor, and the surprisingly sweet support lent by the ensemble cast.
Mausam is one movie which audiences will like or love, but will hardly dislike simply because there is so much for everyone: the music, the performances, the supporting cast, the cinematography, the action, the dialogues, the locations, the charm and the story as well. It is definitely not your came-and-went-by fare, and even though a few might not be in the mood of a repeat watch, but this weather is surely worth a one time experience to be gained. Hope you too like the movie.
