New Movie Review: The Kashmir Files

New Movie Review: When depicting tragic real-life events, many filmmakers take a safer, sometimes uncertain approach. However, in The Kashmir Files, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri goes right to the impact, focusing on the departure of Kashmiri Hindus from the valley in the early 1990s due to a surge in Islamic militancy, and the influence it has had on the community ever since. From the opening scene forward, Agnihotri illustrates the injustice that existed in the region from the opening scene forward, and from there he showcases a sequence of brutal, terrible incidents that are sure to leave you uneasy in your seat.

The director weaves numerous real-life occurrences together to tell the story through the eyes of Pushkar Nath Pandit (Anupam Kher), who is a victim of the exodus and fights for justice and stability not just for himself, but also for his mourning family and society as a whole. Through the incident, Agnihotri explores several other important issues, including the role of the media and the government at the time, regional politics, the impact on daily needs such as food and medicine, the changing face of the near and dear ones, the aftermath, and contemporary perceptions of the tragedy.

Agnihotri and his team deserve credit for their thorough investigation. However, while one may connect with Pushkar Nath Pandit’s narrative in the first half. The connection is lost in the second half due to the filmmaker’s attempt to highlight so many viewpoints at once. Furthermore, while there is an attempt to achieve a balance of points of view in the narrative. It is generally visible only near the end and appears to be absent in most of the plot.

Some may consider a few of the scenes ‘too violent. They do allow the director to convey his message of ‘Right to Justice’. Particularly in light of the community’s trauma. The film was shot in Kashmir. Maintaining loyalty to the setting gives the story a lot more authenticity and feel. The film’s flow is well-edited. The dialogues are authentic to the region, and the subtitles are helpful when you don’t understand the language.

Anupam Kher impresses throughout the film in terms of acting. His performance is powerful, but not overbearing. Mithun Chakraborty, Puneet Issar, Prakash Belawadi, and Atul Srivastava play four additional people who play crucial roles in Pushkar Nath Pandit’s and eventually his grandson Krishna’s (played by Darshan Kumar) journeys. While all four actors perform admirably, Chakraborty’s contentious scene with Krishna is particularly memorable.

Kumar does a good job in his role, but it’s in the climax scene that he shines. Pallavi Joshi is fantastic in the role of Radhika. Although I wish there was a little more backstory to the character to explain her behavior. Other members of the supporting cast do admirably as well.

Yes, Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files is largely devoid of the second point of view. It does a good job of conveying the situation of Kashmiri Hindus and the pain they continue to feel.
