Anupam Kher’s heart-aching performance leaves a lump in your throat. As a man pining for his lost home, Kher is outstanding. Pallavi Joshi is equally effective. Given her acting prowess, you wish her character was more layered. Chinmay Mandlekar and Mithun Chakraborty are competent in their respective roles.

The Kashmir Files is not an easy watch. You would cry, sob, feel scared watching the tragedy of lakhs of men and women who were made refugees overnight. Thankfully, it is not your typical Bollywood masala film based on true events and told with the colours of a rainbow. Agnihotri tells the horrible tale as it should have been told.

Five lakh Kashmiri Pandits had to leave everything behind in 1990 when Kashmir echoed under the announcements of Raliv Galiv ya Chaliv. The rest is history. Forgotten. The Kashmir Files, based on the genocide of KPs, releases on 11th March. Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, it has power packed performances by Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi, Bhasha Sumbli, Darshan Kumaar and all others.

The Kashmir Files is not an easy film to watch. It isn't the kind of movie where you want to munch a bag of nachos and sip that cola while checking your cellphone. Instead, the film makes you realise that if we are alive today, it's a privilege and not something that should be taken for granted.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
Anupam Kher is the emotional core of this overwrought film. The film may not be interested in nuance but what stays with us is are the flashes of genuine pain we see in the person of Pushkar Nath, played by Anupam Kher in a credible, moving turn.

Rohith Sharma’s music and Swapnil Bandodkar’s lone lyric are outstanding. The flick is lengthy and appears to be an extended documentary at times. Background of a student who goes to Kashmir for a reality check somewhat appears unconvincing.

  1. I am really satisfied that finally a movie has been made that depicts the forgotten exodus of kashmiri pandits from their homeland. Being a kashmiri pandit myself my heart is weeping. No one came to help us be it political parties, police or even army.

  2. Even with only 550 screens this movie will do at least 70-75Cr business. Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri’s last film The Tashkent files opened at mere 30 lacs on 250 screens & still finished at nearly 25 Crores which is more than 5x its budget. Kashmir files, otoh is super hyped, & from tomorrow the shows will start increasing. And this is all happening without any Bollywood PR. It is the the masses that is doing PR for this film
