Kedarnath review: Sara Ali Khan sails through in this Titanic-like catastrophe drama
Produced by RSVP, Kedarnath was made at an estimated budget of Rs60 crore and the film was released in 1,850 plus screens across India. The film narrates the love story of a Muslim porter Mansoor (Rajput) and a Hindu Brahmin girl Mukku (Sara Ali Khan), set in the backdrop of the 2013 Kedarnath flash-floods. Given its subject, the film has been banned in seven districts of Uttarakhand, as the district magistrates feared there could be a law and order situation if the film is allowed to be screened.
Kedarnath could have done better if it was not competing with the holdover release 2.0, starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar.
The Hindi version of the Tamil flick was released in 4,000 screens. 2.0 (Hindi) bagged a decent Rs37.50 crore nett in its second week. It has so far earned Rs175 crore nett in the domestic market. Worldwide, the film (all languages) has grossed over Rs550 crore. 2.0 is made at a staggering budget of Rs543 crore.
