#Kedarnath....Not A #Movie Review!
Went for the movie last weekend and while I had high hopes and expectations from it, I was slightly disappointed with the screenplay. There were other parts of the film however, that I thoroughly enjoyed. The fresh pair of Sara and Sushant was refreshing. The cinematography was beautiful and the music had a good mix of all kinds. The adrenalin pumping scenes in the last twenty minutes of the movie, post climax, kept me on the edge of my seat.
What I absolutely #loved in the movie though was the character of Mansoor, played by #SushantSinghRajput. A sober, soft spoken and gentle guy, he could easily come across as shy but in reality was deeply connected to the religion of #Humanity and greatly dedicated to his job of a simple porter, as he joyously helped devotees reach their destinations and ultimately feel closer to God. Although driven by love, the fearless and sacrificial end to Mansoor only glorified his character further and I can only sing praises of a human so gallant and #noble.
Sara played her role of outspoken and bold Mukku to the hilt too and she does seem to have taken away most of the praise for so confidently playing her debut role. But for me, praises go more to Sushant for having chosen a role that today's generation could almost consider archaic or old fashioned or probably not even relate to. Kudos to #AbhishekKapoor too for picking to direct such a story. While bold and noisy is attention grabbing these days, its disillusionment of being heroic needs to go, for true heroism lies and shall always lie in humbly being dedicated, sacrificial and brave. I do hope the movie industry makes more such movies of heroism; and as entertaining and fun as they may be, not just make ones that portray boldly clothed, loud and noisy, unscrupulous characters as heroes as they act out false heroism with grandeur and vanity!
