The Kashmir Files depicts the political agendas that are formed around the Kashmir issue, as well as a glance into politics, Kashmir’s past, current, and other diplomatic aspects of the state and India. When the trailer for the highly awaited film The Kashmir Files got released online, it made headlines for all the right reasons. Following The Taskent Files, Vivek Agnihotri returns with a new spine-chilling thriller of Kashmiri Pandits’ murders and evacuation from the valley.
The film features an ensemble cast of National Award Winners, including Pallavi Joshi and Prakash Belavadi, and is directed by Anupam Kher and Mithun Chakraborty. Darshan Kumar, Bhasha Sumbali, Chinmay Mandlekar, Puneet Issar, Mrinal Kulkarni, Atul Srivastava, and Prithviraj Sarnaik are among the cast members.
The 3.5-minute clip begins with Atul Srivastava asking his co-star, who plays a Kashmiri Muslim during the Genocide, how many Kashmiri Pandits he has killed, to which he replies, “20-25.” What’s more troubling is that when Atul asks him if he’ll kill his brother and mother if someone asks, he answers, “I will kill them.” However, the commotion begins as soon as Darshan Kumaar appears in the teaser. The trailer then progresses to show the terror reaching a pinnacle in the valley, full of terrifying rallies and murders.
The movie is said to be a startling, compelling, and brutally honest film based on genuine events of the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits. The Kashmir Files by Vivek Agnihotri is a spine-chilling introduction that sets the tone for a rollercoaster of emotions. Given the sensitive nature of the subject, the creators have provided an excellent overview of the film’s content and what to expect from it in the trailer.
Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, Darshan Kumar, Chinmay Mandlekar, Prakash Belawadi, and Puneet Issar play significant parts in The Kashmir Files. The story follows a young student who is swayed by his college lecturer and overlooks the history of Kashmir and its people until he is forced to confront the brutal reality. Pushkar Nath Pandit, a Kashmiri Pandit who was displaced with his family during the 1989 exodus and mass deaths, is played by Anupam Kher.
