    In trying to please everyone, Kedarnath loses edge, and leads to a tepid cop-out. It’s a weepie minus the tears.

    Kedarnath is a pointless, entirely forgettable film, but some may remember the girl fondly — which may well be the film’s only task. In one scene, Sara rides down the mountain on Sushant’s back, and he calls her the heaviest load he’s lifted. She smiles and tells him to get used to it. Carry on, Indian cinema, carry on.

    In the conclusion, Kedarnath does have some genuinely likable moments but when the monotony of the drama gets exposed, the film’s pace breaks down and the entertainment level drops. The film somewhat manages to regain its speed in the climax. But till then, you find it is already late.

  • While Sushant Singh Rajput does much of the heavy lifting with a great deal of flair, the biggest asset is Sara

  • Kedarnath starring Sushant Singh Rajput marks the big Bollywood debut of star kid Sara Ali Khan. The film is directed by Abhishek Kapoor. Actors Sara and Sushant shine in Kedarnath but the film drowns, says our review.

  • All said and done, Kedarnath is watchable just for Sushant Singh Rajput, Sara Ali Khan and its cinematography. There’s nothing you’ll take back with you once the lights turn on. This plot required a special treatment to establish the connection & the makers fail at the base level itself. Skip it!

  • KEDARNATH is a poor fare owing to the unexciting and flawed writing and weak execution. What works well is Sara Ali Khan’s stupendous performance and the flood sequences. At the box office, its fate will be an average one.

  • Be that as it may, is this the sort of romance dream-debuts are made of? Traditionally, yes. Sara Ali Khan’s mother, Amrita Singh, for instance, similarly hit the screen with Betaab – rich girl, poor boy, young love – in the early ’80s.

    A Hindu-Muslim romance set in the temple town of Kedarnath, at the time of the deadly cloudburst that wiped out thousands of people. The film launches Sara Ali Khan and she has infinite possibilities although the film doesn’t.

    If one must watch a fictional account of a natural disaster, we can always turn to Hollywood blockbusters which have done it too well and too often. This just seems like watching an ’80s Hindi movie for an hour-and-a-half and then an ’80s shark movie for another 10 minutes.

  • ‘Kedarnath’ is perfectly stormy and is good for a one-time watch.

  • At over two hours of screen time, the drill turns tedious and tiresome, and sinks into a mushy mess in the end, never ever coming together as a wholesome movie.
