Critic reviews and ratings

  • The film tries to strike a balance between art and mainstream cinema and succeeds partially.

  • ...is certainly worth a viewing.

  • 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.

  • ...is flawed and tiresome but still has a good chance with people who are simply in love with love.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...starts like a dewy-fresh spring morning, where everything is familiar yet new. It then wilts, autumnal overtones taking over. And then never quite recovers, falling into a dreary never-ending winter.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...hope Pankaj Kapoor directs another film soon, perhaps utilising those flashes of brilliance a little more. Next time, I hope he gives us more of those sensitive, romantic moments, instead of trying to encompass all that is happening around the world.

  • If you go in knowing what to expect, you might be surprised at how unexpected a Bollywood romance can be.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a colossal disappointment!

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • As manipulative masala tearjerkers go, it's a film that tries relatively earnestly and certainly one that occasionally looks striking, but disappoints overall.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...what first-time director and award winning actor Pankaj Kapoor has done. He has committed the cardinal sin of not knowing when to stop. Also, I feel, he has tried to mix in too many turbulent elements of the past, intersperse them and in the process has ended up burning his fingers.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is beautifully shot, no doubt about that, but a regular love story takes forever to finish, and then there's some more left.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The old-world charm of Mausam is likeable, but doesn't salvage it. In the end, the only thing epic about the film is its unwarranted length.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • As you leave the hall exhausted from the sheer length of this misguided enterprise, you cannot help but note that despite its many flaws, this is a noble failure. The film doesn't work, but not for lack of trying.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • While there is little doubt that Mausam is an honest effort to make a beautiful, even epic film, it is way off the mark, missing layers, and struggles to stay afloat.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • An average flick.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film is just too much effort gone in vain.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...starts promisingly but runs into rough weather as soon as it leaves rural Punjab and goes globe-trotting.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a film one wanted to like. But the truth is, it's marred by long-drawn storytelling, mediocre performances, and a bizarre finale. Find your reasons, if you must watch it!

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Setting out with a script with better drama, leave aside a plot, could've helped its scale more.
