Kedarnath Movie Review: Love story bundled with the pathos of Kedarnath
Namo Namo Shankaraye… yes we are talking about the release of the week: Kedarnath.
This movie will definitely give you a roller coaster ride of emotions. The film’s plot draws its relevance from the calamity of Kedarnath, Uttarakhand, that happened in June 2013.
Kedarnath is an inter-caste love story between Mandakini (Mukku) played by Sara Ali Khan and Mansoor (Sushant Singh Rajput).
We must say that Sara Ali Khan as a newcomer has really amazed us. She is confident, shows glimpses of Amrita Singh in her walk, dialogues and acting.
So, coming back to the story, Mukku is the daughter of a priest. She helps her family in household chores and takes care of the family lodge and shop at times.
On the other hand, Sushant Singh Rajput playing Mansoor is a Pithu Boy in Kedarnath. He is a Muslim guy in a Hindu pilgrimage area for which he is discriminated and suppressed at times but he fights back. The film opens in May 2013.
As the story progresses, Mukku and Mansoor meet, they start meeting more often and eventually fall in love with each other. Both Mukku and Mansoor are shown concerned about the destruction that humans are causing to nature. The first half of the film and a few minutes of second-half show their blooming love story which is a treat to the eyes of viewers.
Since the love story is based on intercaste plot, it would have incomplete without the repression. So, this movie has that too.
We know that you might have guessed all these things already but what you couldn’t have guessed is the last 30 minutes of the film. When the calamity actually hits Kedarnath. There is water all over, Rain and floods are happening, people are dying, there are genuine screams. These scenes will make you bite your nails. You will be worried about the characters and definitely the end. The end is not something new, we all have seen this type of ending before but
Screenplay and Direction: Film is shot beautifully. It will revive the traveler in you but the end which is very dynamic but it could have been better in terms of VFX. Abhishek Kapur and Kanika Dhillon
