Kedarnath is a love story set against the backdrop of 2013 devastating Uttarakhand deluge. It is an inter-faith romantic drama with good performance by actors. Kedarnath got mixed reviews from critics. While some considered it a dull film, others mentioned that it had the possibility of being a much better film. However, it is a one-time watch.
Sara Ali Khan will next be seen in Rohit Shetty's directorial Simmba, whereas, Sushant will next feature in Abhishek Choubey's Sonchiriya. While Simmba is an action-packed entertainer and mostly looks like Shetty's blockbuster Singham starring Ajay Devgn, Sonchiriya is based on dacoits and has an ensemble cast. Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, Ashutosh Rana and Bhumi Pednekar are in lead roles in this crime drama.
Despite flaws in the writing, here's what worked most in the favour of Kedarnath.
''The movie has good performance. None of the actors disappoint. Whether it is Nishant Dahiya, Pooja Gor or Alka Amin, Kedarnath has team of actors who deliver their best through their eyes. Here Sara Ali Khan needs a special mention. The star kid had set our expectations soaring high right with the trailer. Sara shines throughout the film. She is a show-stealer in most of the scenes. Credit should go to the director, who has perfectly brought out every shade of this newbie. Sushant Singh Rajput is at ease in the role of soft-hearted, helpless yet determined lover.''
