Disaster, deluge and the ‘dil’ they change the course of everything, love stories and film scripts predominantly. Kedarnath has all of the aforementioned and more playing with the mood of the film and its fate.
The scenic but treacherous mountain paths are the first we see as Mansoor (Sushant Singh Rajput) gets ready to taxi the pilgrims to the coveted temple of Kedarnath. Except, he isn’t going to put them in a vehicle, he will instead strap a chair around his head and port the pilgrim up the hill. He is a good-natured porter, who wears non-descript clothes that cannot hide his sinewy strength. He makes the 14Kilometers journey multiple times in a day, with a smile on his face and no ego around people who might reservations about him being a Muslim. His heart and hard-work and handsome face turns Mandakini’s head. Mandakini aka Mukku (Sara Ali Khan) is the daughter of a Hindu priest, but she isn’t a demure, dainty lass. She is carefree, outspoken and extremely independent when it comes to her ideologies in life.
