Mausam movie review starring Shahid and Sonam Kapoor

Published on September 22, 2011 by NewsIndia      No Comments

The Sigher and the Trier
Film: 
Mausam
Director: Pankaj Kapur
Starring: Shahid Kapur, Sonam Kapoor, Supriya Pathak, Anupam Kher and Aditi Sharma
Rating: 

She sighs beautifully. He grits his teeth manfully. She arches her neck just so she can drape it over his arm when they dance. He holds his spine ramrod straight the minute he puts his aviators on. She skulks on stairways hoping he will recognize her. He wades through snow to rush back to her. She is a Kashmiri Muslim fleeing from militancy. He is a Punjabi scarred by Operation Bluestar. Together they traverse India's modern history, meeting and parting at key points.

She has to leave the tiny fictional village of Mallukot because of tension after the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992. He has to leave Scotland where he is training because the Kargil war breaks out in 1999. 9/11 features as do the Godhra riots. She weeps silently, he gnashes his teeth some more. But as the young starcrossed lovers span continents and circumstance, he an Indian Air Force pilot and she a sometime ballet dancer-sometime shopkeeper, the audience loses the plot.

Every scene is beautifully shot, the romance is meant to grow on you with its artful glances and coy exchanges. But instead of a slow burn, it's just plain exhaustion. In the age of instant email and easily transported cellphones, the lovers leave no forwarding addresses or contact numbers. They rely instead on the goodness of neighbours and the willingness of relatives. This is Pankaj Kapur's first film as director and clearly he's aiming for an old fashioned epic. He pours his heart and mind into it, tying it up in a neat little bow into a message for insaniyat in the time of brutality, but I wish his lovers had been more ardent. And more suited to each other. He's a peacock and she's a swan and the twain shall never mate.

'Mausam' is essentially a Shahid Kapoor film!

We didn't expect anything else, but now we have confirmation from our very own critic who is watching Mausam as we write this. The film directed by Pankaj Kapur stars his son Shahid Kapoor, along with Sonam Kapoor. And how could a fond father not focus the spotlight on his own beta? But all that apart, we have always believed that Shahid is an actor to watch no matter what rubbishy production he is part of, and when he is so lovingly and carefully presented, as in Mausam, he just has to excel, right? And he does. According to our gal, who just smsed us, "It's a slow moving but beautifully crafted love story. And essentially a Shahid Kapoor film. So far all Sonam did is smile n mumble a few words :)" And just as we had decided to go watch it, our critic sent another message: "Now I'm losing my patience. Too slow and a tad boring. They've tried to make a classical romance set in the late '90s. Bizarre!" So, do we watch it or not? You tell us!

^Ummm your reporter is not even done watching the film!! What's the point of saying something about a movie until he/she is done with it? Bizaree!

But yayyy people are liking it!
