Kedarnath All Critic Reviews & Ratings

  • Times of India | Review By - Rachit Gupta | Rating-3/5
The screenplay has its strengths and weaknesses, but through the crest and trough of dramatic waves, what stands out as a solid force is young debutante Sara Ali Khan.

  • News 18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-2.5/5
Kedarnath ultimately falls short of living up to its promise, but I was happy to visit its world. The imagery is overwhelming, even if the writing feels laboured.

  • Indian Express | Review By - Shubhra Gupta | Rating-2/5
But the writing is sketchy, and the tone confused, never quite knowing whether to go quiet and life-like or to swell with wailing violins, especially when the waters start rising, and life-threatening danger starts looming.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By - Raja Sen | Rating-2/5
Kedarnath is a pointless, entirely forgettable film, but some may remember the girl fondly — which may well be the film’s only task.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-2/5
The film strings together elements that seem promising at first flush. But the positive features are eventually buried under a deluge of clich├ęs aggravated by a contrived climax.

  • Film Companion | Review By - Anupama Chopra | Rating-2.5/5
The second half has so much stuffed into into it that little makes an impact – including the flood. The narrative races choppily from one disconnected scene to another.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-1.5/5
Wonder if this stuff still works in the front benches; forget the few highfalutin film-buffs. Who knows? Wish them well; of course.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-3/5
Truth be told, Amrita Singh and Saif Ali Khan's daughter has tons of filmi blood and it is what powers Kedarnath from start to finish.

  • DNA | Review By - Meena Iyer | Rating-3/5
Of course, the climax has something different to offer (which one cannot reveal). But having said that, the film needed to up the entertainment quotient to a large degree.

  • Mumbai Mirror | Review By - Kunal Guha | Rating-2.5/5
This just seems like watching a '80s Hindi movie for an hour-and-a-half and then a '80s shark movie for another 10 minutes.

  • Filmfare | Review By - Devesh Sharma | Rating-3/5
Summing up, Kedarnath dazzles you with its scenic imagery and it's fresh pairing. But it's also a case of missed chances.

  • India Today | Review By - Ananya Bhattacharya | Rating-2/5
Sadly, Kedarnath the film too is washed away by the floods before your mind can start thinking about it. What stays are the characters.

  • Khaleej Times | Review By - Anita Iyer | Rating-2.5/5
The filmmaker tries hard to make us believe in a love story that isn't really organic. Kedarnath fails short of stirring up emotions the way it intends. It ends up being an empty, unmoving watch.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-2.5/5
There’s no tsunami of feelings for the on-screen couple here because they aren’t emotionally potent. However, everything in this film is blessedly brisk — be it falling in love or a flood that swallows half the town.
