Mausam is a classic love story spanning 10 long years, a rarity in Bollywood today. The idea of romance has changed over time and so has its portrayal on the big screen

Gone are the days when a couple swore to die for each other, or the days when the heroine would wait for years to see her lover. The classic romance is definitely a dying breed in B-town. It has now been replaced with more fast-paced and real stories. And the audience seems to be lap it up too, making them the new age classic love stories.
