Kedarnath Movie Review
Kedarnath is a potent combination of love and religion of passion and spirituality. It is set on a 14-kilometer pilgrimage from Gauri Kund to Kedarnath, the 2000-year-old holy temple of Lord Shiva. His world turns around when he meets the beautiful and rebellious Mukku who draws him into a whirlwind of intense love. It is a Hindu-Muslim love story, Kedarnath portrays how a Muslim Pithoo saves a Hindu tourist from the Uttrakhand floods at the pilgrimage. The love that eventually develops between them. Destiny has separate plans for the lovers amidst the uncertainties of life, nature and broken hearts.
Now, Sara Ali Khan, daughter to Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan, makes her debut in Abhishek Kapoor’s wet weepie Kedarnath. Sara looks ok as a first time performer. Sushant proves himself as a great performer yet again. This film claims to be about the Kedarnath floods of 2013, but the catastrophe serves as an afterthought. Coming in at the very end of a 1980s-type star-crossed romantic melodrama. Abhishek’s films feature moments of poetry that seem accidental. Kedarnath as a whole is a movie that you cannot remember and can easily forget but some may remember the girl which seems to be the only task of the film. The film’s VFX is even average and doesn’t give you a reason to watch.
It is a regular movie with an old story and the same old theme, but Sara is a fresh face in it and Sushant brings calm. So, decide on your own whether to watch it or not.
