The 9 crores opening day news came out around 6-7 pm Indian time, when all the movie theaters still had 3 - 4 more shows still to come and the final tally was far from being tabulated. First day collections are never tallied till the day is over and all the collections are taken into account. I think the 9 crore number was just some random number thrown about by some overzealous fan.

But close to 7 crores is a great number considering the genre and the star power of the leading couple. The best that Shahid and Sonam have individually garnered till now. I hope the weekend shows have a good jump to end the weekend at close to 25 crores or even more.

My Comments on Mausam...Smile

Mausam..at the bare minimum..was a total time pass..it was entertaining..I liked the fact that Pankaj beautifully intermingled the serious with sweet comedy...He conveyed his message with a very light stroke..this was a positive as well as negative...because it came out looking not intense enough..

I never felt bored during the movie at all..the film did not seem even slow to me..the narration actually had a 'TIMELESS' sweet & pure quality to it..I now understand the various tweets about being transported to a different world..

My hubby has not taken Shahid seriously until now..he didn't think he was great even in JWM..but he felt Shahid performed brilliantly in this movie..transitioning smoothly into his 4 looks..I loved one comment of his..he said that he could see Harry's level of desperation increasing after each season..as his love for Aayat gradually matures. Also that Shahid became his character Harry...I think thats the highest compliment an actor can get..that also from a non-fan...so definitely Sasha has increased his audience base by one...Tongue

He felt that the movie was great especially before interval..but that the last 10 min of the movie spoilt everything..if they had done away with that..or  manipulated the story in such a way where the super human act was for Aayat..for his love..then it would have added to the love story..instead the last 10 min had no connection with the flow of the story..

He felt that because the ending was not good..he felt disappointed..because the film did not end on a high note..one automatically starts taking the film apart and concentrating on the negaive points...He feels that was what was behind such negative reactions from the critics..

Sonam did the role given to her well enough..but her acting did feel shaky at places...as if she barely managed to do what she did...which was not actually much..My husband felt that she did the mischievous laughter portions well but not the sad intense ones...her character as Aayat had scope for more intense emotions..even more than that of Harry..but in the film Shahid was the only one left doing the job..

The final verdict of ours was...this film in its vision..had the scope to become EPIC...but fell short in execution..so blame for that falls squarely on Pankaj's shoulders...I think he was indulgent with his time & that of his family..this product DOES NOT justify exclusively using 1.5 years of Shahid's acting career...at least Sonam was able to cram in other films in between..

That aside...the film has left us with a pleasant feeling..everything about the film was very sweet, fresh and pure...definitely worth a watch..

As for a repeat watch..I want to do so again..to live through the moments and analyze some more..and enjoy Sasha on the big screen again...My husband is reluctant..he says he can watch the pre-interval portion any number of times...but not the whole movie...Tongue

the film itself is nothing to rave about...it's strictly ok & it won't go down in history as hindi cinema's most romantic film...the major letdown is the script & screenplay...props to the actors the script really does nothing for them..but truly this is sonam's best till date she has outdone herself & shahid is good too(shahid has proved his mettle as an actor long back but with this film sonam has actually proved she can act) i was pleasantly surprised i am a sonam fan but honestly didn't think too much about her acting prowess but with this film she in a way consolidated my faith in her as an actress( thank you kinda made me question her talent )...sonam is truly elegance personified & i personally feel she should stick to such films instead of the routine song & dance films...she is certainly not cut out for that kind of cinema..deepika scores well in such films...want to thank pankaj kapoor for extracting a wonderful performance from sonam...it would probably make people sit up & take notice of sonam's talent ...she still has a long way to go but the girl sure has potential


Watched it! Smile

My views are pretty much same as ght_sajan's..the movie was an average fare nothing really epic about it..But u can call it a decent one time watch..Not a complete waste of my 50 bucks..The best part has to be the cinematography,SONGS and lead actor's perfomance..Negative points are shoddy editing,slow pace and melodramatic climax..I actually posted my comment here solely to appreciate Sonam-Shahid Embarrassed..and its totally unbiased cuz as many know i am no fan of both..The actors were the reason i wasnt much excited for the flick.But boy i was wrong or what?..they didnt dissapoint me at allClap..Especially Shahid wow he took me back to the JWM days Day Dreaming !! He had great finesse in all the varied emotions he portrayed onscreen..He was equally good in both both first and second halves Clap..Never bored me! Sonam-FINALLY! she has arrived..Now i feel bad for thrashing her as a non talent kapoor LOL..She definitely has potential..My fav scene of her the climax where she shows all the agony,passion,fear everythingClap..She looked so beautiful even better than her Delhi 6..These kind of subtle,sober roles are her forte..If she is gonna stick to them,will definitely emerge as a winner beating all Dp's,Asins
the chemistry b/w the leads was nothing to rave about though..My fav scene of them is the 'abhi na jaao chodke " one
The length of the movie is causing some trouble..Many guys were shouting "picture band kar do" after 2 hrs lol..My mom who rarely appreciate BW movies loved mausam..She cant stop raving about Sonam's beauty and Sasha's cuteness hehe LOL

A special mention for Aditi who played Rajoo's role..she was great and one could actually connect to her pain :))

All in all i would give mausam a rating of : 2.5-3 out of 5 mainly for the genuine perfomance of the leads and for the honest intentions that went behind making of such a simple movie in the time when masala no brainer south inspired themes guarantee ATBB

It was actually an article from IANS and you are right. LOL! I didn't take that seriously. The speculation was it might cross 8 crores.

Yep close or around 7 crores is very good. That's as much as your2 (6+-7+)said IK, RK & Shahid can get.

Let's see how the weekend goes!

TA is so quiet about Mausam! hmmm.
