Mansoor Khan (Sushant Singh Rajput) is a pitthoo in Kedarnath who ports the visitors on his back helping them to cover the trekking distance and reach the temple. Mandakani Mishra aka Mukku (Sara Ali Khan) is the daughter of a wealthy priest who also owns some hotels in that area. They both are fond of cricket & that helps them to get so close to each other so they kiss in a cave.
Whenever Bollywood doesn’t get anything to evoke the emotional connection in their paper-thin love stories, a religious, controversial, forced connect takes birth in the script. Same is the case with Kedarnath. It’s 2018 and we’re over thousands of love stories, Kedarnath offers nothing new. The only fresh things in this story lie somewhere in the first half & rest of the story is just another tale with the backdrop of a natural disaster.
Sushant Singh Rajput is marvelous in his act. He carries a bag of various expressions with him with the confidence of using it at the proper time. He fails to grab the accent of a Pahari guy but is perfect with his body language. The reflection of her mother, Amrita Singh, Sara Ali Khan leaves a mark with her debut performance. She’s very good in most of the scenes.
Amit Trivedi’s songs pop up as a saving grace. Apart From Sweetheart, all the other three songs serve their purpose. Kedarnath is a good watch just for Sushant Singh Rajput, Sara Ali, Khan and its cinematography.
