In a tweet, he said, “… Nothing, I repeat, could have primed me for The Kashmir Files’ emotive impact. As a die-hard moviegoer, if there is one film that encapsulates the sheer power of the cinematic medium to express facts, it has to be “The Kashmir Files.” The film isn’t engaged in tone, but what sticks with us are the glimpses of deep pain we see in the character of Pushkar Nath, performed by Anupam Kher in a reliable, moving performance.

How is the movie doing on Box-office?
The Kashmir Files kick starts the day with a solid box-office collection of around 7-7.25 crores. The net gross margin of the last two days is around 10.50 crores. It was set to premiere on 4 March but was delayed by a permanent prohibitory order following a ruling in favor of a complaint filed by the widow of an Indian Armed Forces squadron commander. Previously, it was set to release on 26 January 2022 on the occasion of the national festival Republic day. However, later was halted because of the spread of the Omicron Virus.
Zee studios served as the producer while the movie was written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri. In August 2019, Vivek announced the movie via posting a poster on his social media account, saying, “The movie will be an open exploration of one of its greatest human tragic events.” It is filmed at an undisclosed location in the Himalayas, starring “A Wednesday” star Anupam Kher in the lead. His jaw-dropping performances in the character of Pushkar Nath Pandit speaks the pain of the thousands of Kashmiri Pandits who innocently became the victims of the unspeakable painful attack. Joining him in the lead is Mithun Chakraborty, Darshan Kumar, Radhika Menon, and Mrinal Kulkarni.
Darshan Kumaar, who played Krishna Pandit in the movie said, “It is disappointing that it has taken 32 years to present this story on screen. While watching videos, I became numb. Getting to work with veteran actors like Anupam sir and Mithun sir was a dream come true for me.” Anupam Kher also highlighted his views saying, “I cried on screen in every scene of the movie. It was painful to see such a horrifying act.”

The Kashmir Files: Movie Review!
The last time Bollywood addressed the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley was in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s film ‘Shikara.’ ‘The Kashmir Files,’ by Vivek Agnihotri, broadens on that narrative and tries to make this the only lens by which he views it based on the real facts. Pushkar Nath Pandit, played by Anupam Kher, is the emotional center of the movie. He is a teacher who is evicted from Srinagar household after his son is stabbed to death. Krishna, played by Darshan Kumaar, returns to Srinagar with Pushkar Nath’s ashes and, with the assistance of his grandad’s closest friends. On his return, he learns lessons that both anguish and awaken him. Krishna was oblivious to his family’s terrors because he was a boy when they fled.
This isn’t a subtle film; it’s a sledgehammer, plus the way it utilizes its grisly murders and mass executions, which render you shudder and shut your mouth.
