It was Houseful. Felt great. Lol.
The satisfaction of watching a good movie!
Specially when everyone in the theater is enjoying, laughing, crying, whistling. Ahhh! <3 Love, love, love.
OH!...SPOILER ALERT. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
want to start off by...why the hell are the "critics" writing off this
movie?...They can watch shizz like Double Dhamaal, Ready and what not
and give it high ratings but they can't do that for a movie like
Mausam?!. -___- Some bs, i tell ya. Total rubbish.
A honest request
to everyone that has not watched the movie yet: Do not let the reviews
you have read paint a picture of the experience that you will have when
you watch this film. And please do watch it on the big screen...its
meant to be watched on the big screen. The experience is just mind
Anywayss...back to my review...
Mausam is nowhere near flawless. But its honesty and simplicity makes you look past it all. Its just beautiful.
number one thing that i adored about Mausam is that it isn't the
obvious average, boy meets girl movie that we always see in our
Bollywood films. Its different. Instead of conflicts between the leads
its conflicts in the surrounding of the leads. Its about how love can
survive, no matter what. After a LONG TIME i have been satisfied with a
movie. And it feels good.
Haha. Finally a movie that stays in your heart and mind.
To me, it
made me think...in this day and age, does love like this still
exist?...Is this really larger than life or it is still possible? Can
our hearts and mind go beyond what's happening in our surroundings to
just be with the love of your life? Do things like this happen anymore?
Its easier to give up than hold on...If you love someone so much...are
you willing to wait or will you just move on? Its easier to move on. But
if its true love...your love can survive. No matter what. Love is
sacrifice, patience and faith!(;
Just a few thoughts that were going through my mind after the movie...sorry if i got too mushy
love romantic films...obviously.
And this one was no different. I
loved it, i did. And what made me love it so much beside the story was
Shahid and Sonam. How can one like a film if you can't feel for the
characters. Shahid is excellent in it and Sonam has improved. They did a
fab job...Nothing is forced...and i loved that about it.
This is a BIG leap for him as an actor. He definitely deserves a
standing ovation. And he definitely got one from the theatre i was at.
He is impeccable in it. Every shade that he goes through in the
movie...you feel for him. Harry is a wonderful character for us to see
his charms. EFFORTLESS.
: Everyone agrees that she has a
lot to learn as an actress. Well, i am happy to say...she has improved.
A lot. She does great justice to her role and her looks help as well.
She looks like Aayat and acts like Aayat. Yesh, i just said acts!(; This
movie is a winner for Sonam as an actress.
: She does a marvelous job as Rajjo. I felt so bad for her as the character. She played it well!(:
Love, love, love, LOVEEE.
..I don't think i need to say more. Lol.
I have a lot of favorite dialogues from the movie but my most fav. has to be this one:
"Bure logoun ke na naam hote hai na surat, sirf ek bura saya hota ha"
You will understand it once you watch the film!(;
[I think i quoted it correct...if not, its somewhere along those lines. Lol. Sorry.]
Everything is just so breathe taking. I loved every bit of it. Some of my favorites:
-Every Punjab bit. Ohmygosh. I wanna go to Pubjab. Lol.
-Actually...every other place as well. The cinematography is purely amazing. The movie is visually pleasing.
LOVED the attack on tiger hills or whatever. Very beautifully shot. AND
i loved all the scenes that leads to how Harry's hand is paralyzed.
-Abhi na jao chodkar...this was such a surprise and freaking AHHHMAAZINGGG! Hah! I loved it. <3
Their reunion in Ahemdabad after the fire and all that jazz. The
dialogues after that were just out of this world!... Ohmygosh. I am not
going to lie...when they were sitting down talking
and saying those dialogues...i was silently shedding a few tears. Its
was beautiful. Words
cannot explain. <3 I sort of wished the movie ended here instead of
the whole saving the horse and the baby thing. But i didn't mind that as
much as others did. I mean...DUDE! You can watch a police officer kill
someone with a kick or beat someone up with a belt over and over and
over but you can't watch a ferris wheel scene? Something different?
-___- Lol. Anyways. That's just the way i look at it. But i do think the
movie would has had a better ending if it would have ended before the
ferris wheel thing. Nevertheless...it was beautiful.
If this is his first movie...i CANNOT wait for more. Bring it on!!(:
Great first direction. And writing too...BUT...the script was its biggest flaw.
Which brings me to Mausam's flaws...there are just 2.
The script. - The second half could have been better. And like i said
before, i wish the movie would have ended before the ferris wheel scene.
Editing. - It needed some editing...if some scenes would have been
edited the movie would have flowed better. There were some unanswered
questions. But...all the choppy editing did not take away from the
essence of Mausam.
Overall...Don't miss this one. Its fresh. Gives you your money's worth.
It has great moments, memorable characters, great story, great music,
great acting, its beautifully shot, and everything elseee...(:
A great balance of art and mainstream cinema. This one is a winner in my book. DEFINITELY watch this.
P.S. So sorry, its so long.I did not think i wrote so much.
