Last Sunday!!
I travelled from Pune to Mumbai 2 days back.

I am asking if there have been any problems (landslide etc) because of the
incessant rain for the last 2 days. Also if any problems because of water etc.

I am planning to drive from Mysore to Mumbai in the 1st week of September . I hope the roads are good. I am planning to stay overnight in Hubli... is it a good idea or Belgaum is better?

Any other precautions i need to take on this route from Mysore to Mumbai?

Which route are you taking - via Bangalore or via Shimoga? Roads via Bangalore are OK, but here are some minor bad sections near Shimoga. You should easily reach Belgaum - Hotel Sankam Residency is a good place to stay at, just off NH4. To stay in Hubli, you will have to go into town.

NH4 is good, bu you have to come through Bangalore City (unless you take the NICE Road from Bidadi to Nelamangala). The Mysore-K R Pet-Channarayapana-Arsikere-Tarikere-Shimoga-Honnali-Harihar (NH4) route is very picturesque.

Hubli is easier to get in and out.

I think i will take this route as I would be able to take some photos enroute. But i have to get directions at most places.

H V Kumar - Driving Log Books - KUMAR'S DRIVING LOG BOOKS Kerala, Feb 2002

This log book has the route between Bombay and Mysore on the route which you propose to take:

Bombay-Pune-Satara-Kolhapur-Belgaum-Hubli-Harihar-Honnali-Shimoga-Bhadravathi-Tarikere-Arsikere-Channarayapatna-K R Pet- Srirangapatna-Mysore.

You will have to reverse the directions.
