The veteran Partho Ghosh (AGNI SAKSHI, DALAAL, 100 DAYS, to name a few) fails to redeem himself in this unromantic mess that comes straight out of coma from those cliché bollywood romantic musicals starring Shammi Kapoor and Joy Mukherjee and goes back to ICU.
MAUSAM IKRAR KE DO PAL PYAR KE is a fiasco in the name of filmmaking, Rishi Azad and Tarun Mathur add absolutely nothing new to the tried & tested scenario of college sweethearts Amar (Mukesh Bharti ) and Anjali (Madalsa Sharma) about to be engaged. Hell breaks loose when the girl’s father played by Avinash Wadhavan finds that he shares an old rivalry with the boy’s family.
It’s more painful to find the name of veteran Partho Gosh as the helmer and Bappi Lahiri as the musician in this complete humdrum. The lead actor Mukesh Bharti is an expressionless wonder coming from Paris to India in the film to look for his roots and you search for the exit gate. The actress Madalsa Sharma whose character is of a state level tennis player, is a bit better but only to define the difference between bad and worse. The lead fall in love, then circumstances threw them apart, they even elope and the audience wonder who has taken the dope, the persons they are watching on screen or themselves.
The movie has all the ingredients required to make a rom com, romantic numbers, sad numbers, a typical Bappi Lahiri composition with that sound of electronic guitar that became synonymous with his music during his hey days, even a qawwali but the ingredients are left uncooked.
Movies like MAUSAM IKRAR KE DO PAL PYAR KE give an interesting push to the power of money; believe in the caliber of your near and dear ones and how the serious art of filmmaking is taken for a ride sometimes in the movie making industry. You have the biggest stars and money but heartbreaking thrash like MOHENJO DARO and annoyingly crazy RACE 3 gets created.
In cases like MAUSAM IKRAR KE DO PAL PYAR KE you don’t have stars and big names but the power of money and desire to be in the ‘Race’ but that’s not enough, even good talents need good movies to survive, MAUSAM IKRAR KE DO PAL PYAR KE lacks in both.
