Deep in the valleys of the Himalayas lies the abode of Lord Shiva, the Kedarnath Temple. A juxtaposition between tranquility and uncertainty, Kedarnath has withstood the test of time. Now RSVP movies brings to audiences worldwide a cinematic ensemble of love, courage and fate with their forthcoming co-production KEDARNATH, a potent combination of love and religion, of passion and spirituality, releasing in cinemas on 7th December 2018 through Packyourbag Films.
Directed by acclaimed director Abhishek Kapoor (Rock On!!!), KEDARNATH brings together on screen Sushant Singh Rajput, who made his debut 5 years ago in Abhishek Kapoor’s multi-award-winning film Kai Poi Che, and debutante Sara Ali Khan. With her charming demeanor and arresting screen presence, Sara Ali Khan is poised to make a stellar debut in Kedarnath. The lead stars are joined by a strong supporting cast comprising Nitish Bharadwaj, Alka Amin, Sonali Sachdev, Pooja Gor and Nishant Dahiya.
The film is set on a 14-kilometer pilgrimage from Gauri Kund to Kedarnath, the 2000-year-old holy temple of Lord Shiva. Mansoor (Sushant Singh Rajput), a reserved and reticent Pithoo (porter) helps pilgrims make an arduous journey upwards to the temple town. His world turns around when he meets the beautiful and rebellious Mukku (Sara Ali Khan) who draws him into a whirlwind of intense love.
As their relationship grows closer along the journey, they face many obstacles, including familial disapproval and contrasting backgrounds. Their love story is intertwined with the devastating Uttarakhand floods of 2013, which took the lives of several thousand habitats and devastated the region. In the wake of the atrocity, the couple are forced to survive against the elements and face the ultimate test of their love.
The anticipation around Kedarnath’s release is heightened following the overwhelming response it’s trailer garnered, supported by an unanimous endorsement from audiences worldwide on Sushant and Sara’s on-screen chemistry. The films’ songs, which have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya and directed by Amit Trivedi, have also populated radio airwaves with melodious hits like the foot-tapping, wedding dance track ‘Sweetheart’, the a powerful devotional song ‘Namo, Namo’ and the innocent love song ‘Qaafirana’.
Kedarnath promises to transport audiences on a romantic journey filled with sacrifice, heart-warming moments and emotions which evoke a willingness to do anything and everything for love.
Kedarnath releases in the USA on 7th December 2018 through Packyourbag Films.
