Mausam (2011) Review Aggregator
For those of you, who have been eagerly anticipating the release of Shahid Kapoor’s new film ‘Mausam’, we have got news. The film that released across the country today, has garnered mixed reviews, and here is what the critics have to say.
Rediff says it fails to impress: “Finally, giving you opinion about a film called Mausam turn us critics into weathermen, so here goes: Bright and cheerful day, hit by a predictable, gloomy downpour and turned into a damp, middling mess. Perfect one-day cricket conditions, as the English would say.”
NDTV Movies is caught half-way between: “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.”
Bollywood Hungama calls it a colossal disappointment: “Pankaj Kapur is a brilliant actor, but he has a long, long way to go when it comes to writing a screenplay and telling a story without stretching it. There’s no denying that he has handled a number of sequences adroitly, but after a point, the film becomes a tedious experience that sets in boredom and tests the patience of the viewer.
