Many directorial producers compromise on certain things for money while saying that we are screening real stories. Committing a historical distortion in the name of cinematic liberty. They spend their time in the pub without breaking the stick or killing the snake. But 'The Kashmir Files' is different. It is not a routine Bollywood movie that fades into reality.
This is a blindfolded picture of the brutal massacre of Kashmiri Pandits in the Kashmir Valley three decades ago. On March 11, the people of 'The Kashmir Files Movierulz' came forward after overcoming many obstacles. The Haryana and Madhya Pradesh governments have already given tax concessions to the movie.
Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, he and his wife Pallavi Joshi co-produced the film with Abhishek Agarwal, Tej Narayana Agarwal, and Zee Studios. Vivek Agnihotri's last film 'The Tashkent Files' was so well received that naturally, everyone's attention fell on 'The Kashmir Files'.
In 1990, Pakistan-inspired Muslim militants carried out a brutal massacre of Hindu families in the Kashmir Valley. Kashmiri women were stripped naked. Committed mass rape. The men threatened to convert to Islam or be killed if they wanted to stay in the Kashmir Valley. The interceptors looted their property and killed those who turned up. They were brutally attacked with guns and knives.
Until then, even the Muslims who had mingled side by side had joined hands with the Pakistani jihadi mob to commit atrocities. As a result, nearly five lakh Kashmiri Pandits have become refugees at home. He spent years on the putt paths of the Delhi archeological site. Others migrated to different states of the country for a living. Thousands of families were dispersed over time.
The film depicts the family of Pushkar Nath Pandit (Anupam Kher) as a replica of the bitter events of the day. Although Muslim strike mobs are attacking Kashmiri Pandits, Brahmadat IAS is a symbol of helpless government officials who have stood idly by. (Midhun Chakraborty), Hari Narayan DGP (Puneet Issar).
Professor Radhika Menon (Pallavijoshi) plays the role of a so-called secular and liberal left ideologue who distorts history and tells the world that nothing can happen in the Kashmir Valley. Krishna Pandit (Darshan Kumar) plays the role of a symbol of today's youth who ignore the injustices done to them by ignoring liberal ideologies without knowing the facts.
Through both of them, Vivek Agnihotri showed that what actually happened in the Kashmir Valley three decades ago was blindfolded. If the atrocities of that day are shown on the screen like that, water is sure to flow along with the eyes. It’s natural for these shooters to clench their fists in rage at what they can’t do.
The social and political conditions of the day; Conspiracies by Pak to annex Kashmir to their country; Hence Dasohmanna the mentality of the local Muslims; In 'The Kashmir Files', Vivek Agnihotri showed the mischief of the leaders who used the incidents for their political gain. The film manages to entertain as well as inform.
Nowhere does it seem to distort the facts but to show that there is something that does not exist. The sequence of the story and the performance of the actors strengthened it. Also, Rohit Sharma's background music makes us feel the conditions of the day.
The movie 'Operation Golden Fish' came out in Telugu along with one or two movies in Hindi with stories about Kashmir Pandits. But none of them portrayed the atrocities against Kashmir Pandits so honestly and bluntly.
Everyone should watch the movie 'The Kashmir Files'. If not, some are even questioning how reasonable it is to heal old wounds. It is not good for any race, not just individuals, to cover up the bitter events of history and act as if nothing had happened. The future will be better if we find out about those misdeeds and correct them.
If ‘all is well as if nothing had happened then one day that unruly ghost will realize another in another form. For those who innocently ask why the Center has repealed Article 370, watching this movie will give a lot of answers. Special congratulations to Anupam Kher and Vivek Agnihotri for once again expressing their talent as an actor and for being the backbone of the film.
It takes honesty and commitment to take pictures like this. Vivek proved that it was his. It is good that the movie ends with the positive note that the responsibility of recognizing the facts and protecting Kashmir rests with today's youth.
