Storyline

While studying for his medical exams in Darjeeling, India, Amarnath Gill sprains his leg and seeks treatment from the local healer, Harihar Thapa. Amarnath is attracted to his daughter, Chanda, and both get intimate. Amarnath promises to return, but never does. About 25 years later, Amarnath returns to Darjeeling, driving an expensive Mercedes, hoping to relax. He casually makes inquiries about Chanda and her father, and finds out that Harihar passed away long ago; Chanda got pregnant and was hastily married to a aged and invalid man, gave birth to a baby girl, subsequently became insane, and died. He also finds out that Chanda sent her daughter, Kajli, away to another town to study and become a doctor. Amarnath is shocked and full of guilt at the injustice and anguish he has caused Chanda and her family. Then he gets to meet Kajli, who is not studying medicine - but earning her living in a brothel - as a foul-mouthed prostitute. What will Dr. Gill's next step be? Will he be able to ...

Search For Lost Love
6 June 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Gulzar is an artiste in the truest sense. I'm not saying this merely because he's credited as lyricist, writer and director but because of the way he combines poetry and visual art. 'Mausam' is like a beautiful poem and a fascinating painting. It is a part of Gulzar's Lost Love trilogy (the other two being the equally spellbinding 'Ijaazat' and 'Aandhi').

The film starts with Dr. Gill (Sanjeev Kumar) arriving at Darjeeling on holiday to get a break from work. Work seems to follow him. Yet, he tries his best to get away without being impolite to his fellow doctors. There is another motive for his coming to Darjeeling. Perhaps it is more on a subconscious level that have been uncovered upon his arrival. The town gives rise to lost memories, memories of a lost love (Sharmila Tagore). A love he had promised to return to but he failed to keep his word. As Dr. Gill is showered with memories, he embarks on a desperate search for his love but as he discovers the truth his regret exacerbates and his despair to find her heightens.

The cinematography is wonderful. I especially liked how the songs were visualized, the highlight song being 'Dil Dhoondta Hai' that juxtaposes a desperate aged Dr. Gill with his memory of his young self with Chanda. Two other songs are beautifully visualized depicting the relationship between Shankar and Kajri. Needless to say, each songs are eloquently written. The beauty of Darjeeling is well demonstrated. Gulzar's depiction of the prostitutes and brothel is very realistic, especially compared to most movies of its time.

There's no doubt that Sanjeev Kumar was one of the best actors (if not THE best) of his time and he delivers yet another terrific performance. Sharmila Tagore is remarkable in one of her most challenging roles. Even the minor characters are excellently acted by actors like Dina Pathak and Om Shivpuri.

'Mausam' is both a mesmerizing poem and a captivating oil on canvas. It is a timeless piece that I am sure to revisit.
