When an awe-inspiring actor makes a debut as a director, there are obviously high expectations.
Mausam could quite easily have ended up being a stodgy, strenuous and self-conscious drama. Writer-director Kapur, the accomplished actor that he is, orchestrates the emotional ups and downs of his tale with a commendable degree of moderation for the most
After surviving almost three hours of this well-meaning but unbearably indulgent film, the audience is likely to be perplexed.

Mausam - All Reviews

There is an absolutely devastating moment of pure drama in this eagerly-awaited, far-from-disappointing romance.
Mausam, the debutant venture of Pankaj Kapoor is a pleasant journey through the dark and unpleasant historical events as a backdrop.

As per the makers, 'Mausam' tries to bring in an old world charm into the proceedings. Just to jog audience's memory though, even Raj Kanwar directed 'Sadiyaan' [Ever heard of that? It was Luv Sinha's debut vehicle] had attempted that some time back and the results were miserable. Well, 'Mausam' isn't any better and that by itself is a terrible piece of news.

Mausam does not have the heart-warming quality of a love story to please the hearts of the audience. It will not be able to do substantial business at the box-office although reaching the average mark may not be difficult.
