Mausam : The Aroma of Springs, the Heat of Summers, the pain of autumns and the Warmth of Winters in quilt ,seasons bound to change holding their own importance neither being good or bad It's just the matter of preference which one you love. Mausam, the debutant venture of Pankaj Kapoor is a pleasant journey through the dark and unpleasant historical events as a backdrop. Harry (Shahid Kapoor) a young and chirpy lad from a small village of Punjab but with big dreams to fly and run faster than the train falls in love with a beautiful and innocent Kashmiri girl Aayat (Sonam Kapoor) who came to stay at the relatives place due to communal tensions in Kashmir. The first season of the movie can be described as the vintage love story between the two couples set in a sceneric beauty of realistic Punjab village and lovable music which ends up with the separation of the couple where Harry joins the Air force and Aayat left for the Mumbai.The second season starts after 7 years of the separation is Scotland where the couple meets again -Harry as Sq. Leader Harinder Singh and Aayat as a dancer in Royal house of dance. Their romance has grown a step higher with the physical intimacy which ends up in separation again due to urgent recall of Harry by Indian Air Force due to Kargil war. Then again separation, reunion, separation and director seems to be lost somewhere..??? How Read on
Thumps Up Thumps Down (TUTD TM ) Analysis 1) Performances Shahid has grown himself one step further in the acting school from a young chirpy guy to a serious lover to a responsible Air force officer, he has lived all his characters well and in perfection. Sonam was decent and watchable but the best thing is its ensemble cast which support main characters perfectly 2) BeaT SenSE The music of the film is composed by Pritam while the lyrics are penned by Irshad Kamil. This is an excellent album to be kept in collector's edition with such a meaning lyrics and fresh music. 3) Art Sense The cinematography by Binod Pradhan is worth mentioning. Each frame is well captured especially the rural Punjab. 4) For the Director Pankaj Kapoor is a well know actor and this is his debutant venture as a director. The first half of the movie is extremely watchable. The rural Punjab on screen immensely claims applauds which is real as life yet charming and far from Yash raj's Punjab, Johar's lavish living halls and bhansali's BRB (Blue. Red .Black) Sets. The vision of the plot is honest and appreciable but the problem lies in Second half with lot of potholes in the script. a) The 10 years depicted were from 1992 to 2002 covering four major events as a backdrop i.e. Babri Mosque riots, Kargil War, Gujarat's Godhara Riots and America's World trade tower's attack. It would have been nice if the director could have taken one or two events rather than infusing all riots because it seems to be overdose in the script and actually lower downs the pace of the love story b) Second the period from 1992 to 2002 is not a very old period; director must have this in mind that internet and emails were very much in fashion in Indian and abroad in this period, so writing letters by main female lead for years to hero's old residence in Punjab is quite illogical. Also even the email part ignored assuming they were not net savvy Aayat could have left her address and contact details to Harry's sister Voice machine in Scotland, which she earlier done than why she was keep writing post mails and traveling to Punjab to Mumbai to Ahmadabad to Switzerland to Scotland -doesn't it cost money for travel?? c) Shahid role as an Air Force office is very limited to uniform drama only No dialogues at all. During War he seems to be busy checking Jet's wings, Fan, wheel base with a backdrop of a song. Also the controversial fighting sequence is hardly 25 seconds where audience expected to had more c) The white horse in the climax was quite funny thou it was not used to carry on the story thou its presence neither justified anything .The second half script demands better screenplay as its first half.
5) Golden Moments There are few scenes worth mentioning like a) The scene between Harry and Aayat where the Harry initiates a conversation with Aayat by handing over small chits to her and she teases him by putting them in a glass of water. The scene has a sweet song in the backdrop which is not in the album b) Their second meeting in Scotland in Coffee shop where the couple is having conversation in eyes , thou funny at place but appealing c) In a scene when Harry saw Aayat outside a train in Switzerland and his feet chase to catch her. d) The Climax Giant Wheel Child saving sequence is breathless. Chalte-Chalte Mausam like its name has all the flavors including a beautiful Cinema, heart winning Music and a bit of cold scripting But it's worth experiencing. It may not suits Delly belly audience and critics but then Choice is yours
