All ye people who go to watch Mausam despite my review, would do well to enjoy the amazing song to the full, because this is where the fun ends. Up to this part, everything is nearly perfect. I love the authentic feel of the punjabi culture, the language, the ambience, everything up to this point.
Ok, so next stop Edinburgh. Aayat is selling tickets to a Mozart concert on the streets of Edinburgh, when she runs into Harry again. This time, they are older, and slightly more forward. Things are slow, but yet sweet. Just when Harry is supposed to come to her house to ask for her hand formally, he has to leave because of Kargil war.
And so on and so forth, they keep missing each other sporadically till the audience falls into a stupor. There are some stand alone scenes that are good, but generally everything is so soporific, that you know the movie is beyond redeeming. A pity, because the first hour or so is so wonderful and so full of promise.
I really don't know whether I should recommend the movie or not. I shouldn't, but the first part is definitely worth a look.
Such a pity, such a pity.
