So now we know why the tsunami-like floods occurred in Kedarnath in 2013? You see a young Hindu girl who looks a lot like Sara Ali Khan fell in love with a not-so-young Muslim boy who bears an uncanny resemblance to Sushant Singh Rajput . When her parents raised hell and vowed they wouldn’t allow the match to happen(not the next IndoPak cricket match but the one between the Khan and Rajput) she vows, “Then I will do jaap(holi chants) to make surepralay(catastrophe) happens.”
That’s how the 2013’s fury of nature pelted down on Uttarakhand.
Don’t look at me. That’s what the trailer of Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath tells us.If I was the father I’d say what Saif Ali Khan is heard telling his daughter Sara on Koffee With Karan. “Does he have money? Then take her!”
This would spare us the hysterical melodrama of unlikely lovers combating the world. Ho hum.
The sheer tackiness of the simulated natural calamity heightens the sense unnatural emotions in a trailer that promises a film bedecked in absurdity. Sushant is a Muslim Pithu (carrier) and debutante Sara Ali Khan is a Muslim tourist whom he carried to the top of the mountain.And there they should remain.
This is no Jab Jab Phool Khile. Sushant lacks the natural charm of Shashi Kapoor. He labours over his cuteness and strains for drama. Debutante Sara Ali Khan is fresh-faced and unspoilt, more her mom Amrita Singh than dad Saif Ali Khan. Whether that is good or bad is up to you to decide.
What are the chances of this alliance actually happening in real life? Director Abhishek Kapoor is not keen to tell a realistic story . He just wants to go with the flow. Never mind if the flow is a studio-created tidal wave .
