For a debutante, she appears confident. Synopsis: Kedarnath is a potent combination of love and religion, of passion and spirituality set on a 14-kilometer pilgrimage from Gauri Kund to Kedarnath - the 2000-year-old holy temple of Lord Shiva. Another resident of Kedarnath is Mandakini aka Mukku Sara Ali Khan. Mansoor, a reserved and reticent Pithoo porter , helps pilgrims make an arduous journey upwards to the temple town. Kedarnath is a two-hour film, so the demand it makes on your time is reasonable. His world turns around when he meets the beautiful and rebellious Mukku who draws him into a whirlwind of intense love.
Speaking about performances, Kedarnath is an out-and-out Sara Ali Khan show. The clouds burst and a deluge of epic proportions hits Mansoor and Mukku's village. The beauty in this moment lingers for long. You believe in him, you want him to get what he wants and you can clearly see how good-hearted he is. Amit Trivedi fails to dish out a memorable album this time.
Kedarnath Movie Review: Sushant Singh Rajput Sara Ali Khan Abhishek Kapoor FilmiBeat Amidst some exchange of backstory of their loved ones in a dimly-lit cave, Mansoor Sushant Singh Rajput bursts into singing, 'Lag Jaa Gale' with Mukku Sara Ali Khan lovingly gazing at him. He is natural, charming and nuanced. The ensemble cast is very well thought-out too and this adds to the overall narrative immensely. When he finds out that both Mukku and Mansoor are having an affair, it leads to madness. Singh Rajput as Mansoor performs so well that you immediately identify with his character. Though the film is only 120-minutes long, it feels much longer. The rest of the cast including Nitesh Bhardwaj, Pooja Gor and Alka Amin have nothing novel to explore in their respective roles.
Mansoor Sushant Singh Rajput is a 'pitthoo' aka porter who carries pilgrims to the holy Hindu town of Kedarnath from the base. Kedarnath is a potent combination of love and religion, of passion and spirituality. One of the most devastating disasters of this decade left the world stunned and buried in immeasurable grief. Also, Kullu initially was to marry her sister Brinda Pooja Gor but then he decided to opt for Mukku instead. Kedarnath suffers from lack of distinct tonality and flat writing.
Abhishek Kapoor takes a leaf from 2013 Uttarakhand floods and places his tale of doomed love there. He as Mansoor and Sara's Mukku are diametrically poles apart and a little more layered writing would have added more charm to their romance. Mukku then decides she wants to spend time with him and asks him to take her Rambhara every day on his donkey. Barring Sara Ali Khan's dazzling performance, Abhishek Kapoor's Kedarnath fizzles in terms of writing and ends up as a missed opportunity instead. Kapoor has managed to weave a simple but effective love story narrative into a calamity and it creates the right impact on screen.
He is well aware of his social conditions. Cinematographer Tushar Kanti Ray perfectly captures the scenic locations of Kedarnath on the canvas and some of his aerial shots are breathtakingly beautiful. I am going with 2 and half stars here. The trailer of the film garnered a lot of appreciation from all the quarters. . Verdict: The actor-director jodi strikes gold once again. Destiny has plans for lovers amidst the uncertainties of life, nature, and broken hearts.
The performances are great throughout the film, from the main actors and also the supporting cast. The editing of the film works fine. On the opposite side, Ali Khan as Mukku is fiery, funny and a go-getter. Unfortunately, their 'forbidden love' is discovered and Mukku's furious father announces her wedding for the following day. The underlying story between Mukku, her sister and her fiance is also an interesting angle which brings in a believable dimenson.
The Sweetheart song, Nammo Nammo and Jaanisar are all great additions to the story but never overpower the actual film. And yes, you guessed it right! However, we must mention the song, 'Namo Namo' is pleasant to the ears. Though Sushant and Sara do their job, Abhishek Kapoor fails to add enough intensity to this love story. Sara Ali Khan,daughter of Saif Ali Khan is debuting in this movie. Directed by :-Abhishek Kapoor Produced by :-Ronnie Screwvala,Pragya Kapoor,Abhishek Kapoor,Abhishek Nayyar Starring :-Sushanth Singh,Sara Ali Khan Music by :-Amit Trivedi. Mansoor, a reserved and reticent porter, helps pilgrims make an arduous journey to the temple town. Kedarnath totally banks on its leads and they deliver.
Her father Briraaj Nitish Bharadwaj is a priest and he owns a lodge and a shop on the way to the temple. He has fixed her marriage with Kullu Nishant Dahiya , a big name in the temple town. In fact in some parts, she might even remind you of her mother Amrita Singh. However, the writing lacks a spark and comes across as lethargic especially in the first half. She is fierce, sharp tongued and in control of her surroundings. Here is the box office collection according to BoxOfficeIndia.
Director Abhishek Kapoor Rock On, Kai Po Che chooses this historic catastrophe as the background of his latest film Kedarnath, and immediately faces the most obvious challenge—how to believably recreate the natural calamity in its entirety? As the fiesty, loudmouth Mukku who is unabashed when it comes to matters of heart, Sara is a bundle of fresh talent and conveys through her eyes alone in many scenes. He along with his writers throw in an angle of environmental hazard in the story as well, only to tackle it superficially. She makes a confident debut and is a treat to watch. What happens next forms the rest of the film. His world turns around when he meets the beautiful and rebellious Mukku, who draws him into a whirlwind of intense love. Sushant brings calm and Sara a breezy freshness to it. He sometimes downplays emotions and that surprisingly serves the film.
