Mausam Movie Review

[Rating: 2]

Director: Pankaj Kapoor 

Cast & Crew: Shahid Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Aditi Sharma

Plot: Mausam, is a love story in different seasons starting with an adolescent attraction between a Punjabi boy Harry(Shahid Kapoor), and a Kashmiri girl Aayat(Sonam Kapoor) progressing into young love in season two. Their love becomes deeper during their separation period through season three and in the final season, their love culminates into togetherness. A passionate love story which sees various shades of life, questions us and yet is not indulgent.

Review:

Debut director and seasoned actor, Pankaj Kapoor begin’s his vintage love story with the warmth of a Punjabi pindh, Mallukot. Harrinder Singh aka Harry (Shahid Kapoor) is notorious and along with his mischievous gang of boys plays tricks on the village elders. Light humour, rustic scenic backdrops with villagers in their local lingo transport you to Harry’s happy world. He, a victim of the Blue-star operation who falls in love with Aayat (Sonam Kapoor), a Kashmiri Muslim who comes to his village to seek to refuge. Together they share a delicate old-fashioned romance, exchanging coy glances, barely speaking, secret meetings – both playing their part perfectly. Alas! Faith intervenes and Aayat is separated from Harry.

Fast-forward seven years to Switzerland, Aayat spots Harry. He’s now Sq. Leader Harrinder Singh, super-smart, razor sharp, always donning his aviator glasses and upright posture. She’s now the fashionista that you’ve always known Sonam Kapoor to be. Together they waltz in ballrooms and swoon on bridges but it’s not half as original or entertaining as their puppy love in Punjab. From here on, the story loses its grip and logic. It’s rather unbelievable that in today’s age of email and cellphones, two lovers constantly seem to lose their contact addresses and numbers and rely on jealous neighbours to pass on letters. Besides communication being the fundamental obstacle, this couple has their story wrapped around every conceivable Hindu-Muslim tragedy known to Indian history. From the Babri Masjid collapse to Bombay Blasts to the Twin Tower 9/11 attacks to Gujarat riots, to our hero losing his arm in the Kargil War – it’s an overzealous attempt to add unnecessary obstacles.

The climax, set in the Gujarat riots, is so absurd, it’s comical. Makes you sigh and wonder how did you get here from what was a promising start.

Shahid Kapoor, directed by his father, is brilliant as the care-free Harry and is fine as the Indian Air Force officer. Sonam, however, goes from coy to irritating. There’s nothing original and you completely stop caring for her. Aditi Sharma (Rajjo), Harry’s neighbor who crushes on him seems to exude more emotion and touches the audience. 

Verdict: Timeless love story turns into endless melodrama
