Anupam Kher’s ‘The Kashmir Files’ shakes the heart

In the year 2019 a movie ‘The Tashkent Files’ was released, highlighting the life and mysterious death of India’s second Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri. Through this film directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, Shastri ji’s death was discussed again, how did he die? Who was responsible for that? After all, why hasn’t the veil on the mystery of his death been lifted? Was any political party in India also involved in this? There was a lot of discussion about this movie looking for answers to these questions. A similarly humorous new film ‘The Kashmir Files’ has been released in theaters. It has also been led by National Award winning director Vivek Agnihotri. Veteran actors like Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Darshan Kumar and Atul Srivastava have important roles in this film.

The movie ‘The Kashmir Files’ is based on the historical incident of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in the 90’s. It is said that they were massacred there to get the Pandits out of Kashmir. According to Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti, there were 75,343 Kashmiri Pandit families within the Valley in 1990. But between 1990 and 1992, more than 70 thousand families left the valley in fear of terrorists. Between 1990 and 2011, terrorists killed 399 Kashmiri pundits. In the last 30 years, there are barely 800 Hindu families left in the Valley. In the year 1941, the proportion of Kashmiri Hindus in the population was 15 percent. But by 1991, their share was still only 0.1 percent. This pain of Kashmiri pundits displaced from their homeland and working land is brought to the big screen after extensive research.

The pain of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits has been shown in Anupam Kher’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’.

A special screening for Kashmiri Pandits was held in Jammu before the film’s release, which was graced with actors such as Anupam Kher and Mithun Chakraborty. According to eyewitnesses, when the film ended, many of the spectators present were so emotional that they began to cry while standing in their seats. Seeing the atmosphere created throughout the theater, it was understandable how Kashmiri Pandits’ pain has been presented in the film. The film’s director, Vivek Agnihotri, also says that the 1990 Kashmir genocide is an important and sensitive issue in Indian politics, so it was not an easy task to bring it to the screen. For this, our team has carried out extensive research. Discussions have been held with the families of around 700 Kashmiri Pandits, who directly faced this violence in Kashmir. They had to be displaced. He still lives with the same mockery.

Giving the film ‘The Kashmir Files’ 4.5 out of 5 stars, critic Rohit Jaiswal writes: “For me, The Kashmir Files has been the hardest film I have ever made in my entire life. It takes courage to watch it. Watch this film only if the audience can dare. Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri has made the best film of his career.” Giving 3 stars out of 5, Neeti Sudha wrote: “It is very moving and painful to see the film on the big screen of this dark history of the beautiful valleys of Kashmir. But also important. Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ is based on in facts. If we look aside from political leanings, it is heartbreaking to see the brutal atrocities committed against Kashmiri pundits in this film, humanity and the justice system brought to their knees. From article 370 to history and mythology, it is speaks in the 2 hour 40 minute film.

Film critic Sumit Kadel writes: “Independent India’s most brutal chapter. In this, the Kashmiri Pandits massacre was revealed with unfiltered facts. Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, this film is a must to learn the truth about the displacement of Kashmiri Pandits. This truth was buried in the pages of the past.” A user Yash Binani writes that he requests the Indian government to make the film ‘The Kashmir Files’ tax-free throughout the country. Rahul Roshan writes: “I saw the movie ‘The Kashmir Files’ yesterday. Now I understand why Vivek refused to compare him to Haider during the interview. There are many similarities in both, but despite this, both movies have an independent influence, which You can only understand after seeing them.” Journalist Richa Anirudh writes that the film has completely shocked her.
