When I saw the trailer of Kedarnath, I had some reservations if this would be a tale worth watching. Sushant’s voice always hits me and Sara Ali Khan’s debut kept me a tad interested in the movie. Beautiful scenic views, failed attempts at humour, a love story across religious lines and the tragedy of 2013 Uttarakhand floods is all that was revealed in the 179-second trailer.
I wish I hadn’t gathered the courage or Sushant’s acting was a little less appealing in the trailer. Kedarnath turned out to be just a watered down version of James Cameron’s Titanic. Similar to the 11 Oscar Award winner, this one is a love story of two classes belonging to different religions build around a devastating tragedy.
Mansoor who is played by Sushant Rajput is a Muslim porter while the lead actor Sara Ali Khan takes up the role of a rather rich Hindu, Mukku. The movie then carries the theme of “yet another love triangle” with a businessman named Kullu the third wheel in the tale.
Sushant Rajput falls short of producing anything worth watching, his acting – expressionless. While for the other protagonist, Sara Ali Khan, it should turn out to be a good debut. Not in terms of the movie of course which is going to or has already failed miserably, but for her acting – the only plus I found about the saga.
In short, Kedarnath is a version 2.0 of Titanic but the one which will get less viewing, no awards, and as far the rating goes a single star from my side.
