Ashdoc's movie review---Kedarnath



Review has spoilers and in fact tells the whole story of the movie

Set in the backdrop of devastating floods in the himalayas where the hindu shrine of Kedarnath is situated , this film showcases an inter religious love story between Mandakini ''Mukku'' Mishra ( played by Sara Ali Khan ) and Mansoor Khan ( played by Sushant Singh Rajput ) . Mukku is an upper caste hindu , a brahmin .

Mukku has a massive chip on her shoulder because a suitor has rejected the girl he was first engaged to---her sister , and chosen her for marriage . Her father ( played by Nitish Bharadwaj ) has forced her to accept , but she has a powerful rebellious streak within her that seeks revenge on her prospective husband who seems ready to force this relationship on her despite her opposition .

The person she chooses to romance in order to defy her fiance and society is neither of her religion nor her class . Mansoor is a porter who carries pilgrims on his back up the trek going to Kedarnath temple high up the mountain . So Mukku takes the lead in advancing the relationship and soon falls really in love .

Predictably , all hell breaks loose as Mukku's parents and her fiance ( played by Nishant Dahiya ) come to know about the love story and Mansoor is beaten by the fiance's friends . But it seems this act has incurred the wrath of Lord Shiva whose worshipper was Mansoor despite his different religion , and a different kind of hell breaks loose as the heavens explode in fury and torrential rains bring disaster on the whole region by totally flooding it .

The devastating floods and the fury unleashed by the flooding water have been well pictured in the movie , and overall photography of the snowcapped himalayas is beautiful with superb shots of roads and rivers and streams winding through the high mountains .

But the movie showcases the hindus as intolerant , with hindu women initially refusing rides to Kedarnath by muslim porters . Mansoor is repeatedly reminded of his religion by Mukku's fiance and told not to interfere in decisions regarding any development in Kedarnath because of his different religion .

Sara Ali Khan looks good and pretty much like a slimmer and more delicate version of her mother Amrita Singh . She acts in the same fiesty style of her mother . Sushant Singh Rajput is not convincing enough . Worse , he is outclassed in both in the acting and the looks department by the person playing his rival---the tall and strapping Nishant Dahiya .

Background music is decent and I liked the songs . Those who are frowning on a love story between an upper caste hindu girl and lower class muslim will get some cold comfort as the love story does not get consummated ; Mansoor dies saving others including Mukku and her father from Floods .

Verdict---decent .

Three stars out of five .
