“32 years later, the emotions & the pain remain the same. Witness the brutally honest story of the Kashmir Genocide,” the makers tweeted through their official Twitter account along with the link to the film’s official trailer.
Writer-Director of the film, Vivek Agnihotri who had deactivated twitter account few days back as he received death threats and vulgar calls to stop the release of this particular movie, took to twitter and said that India is at war, but no one is telling you. And asked people to share the most brutally honest of Kashmir Genocide only if they liked it
As the trailer was released on the different social media platforms, netizen s are left numb as they saw it. The most common response was that it is a ‘Gut Wrenching and Brutally Honest’ trailer which is need of the hour. As the trailer progresses, we see a political unrest in the region that resulted gruesome murders, rapes and exodus of Kashmiri Hindus who refused to leave their motherland.
The film’s star cast consist of Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Pallavi Joshi, Chinmay Mandlekar and Puneet Issar. Anupam Kher being a Kashmiri Pandit himself was asked that does it film gives closure to the pandits during ‘Arth- A Cultural Fest’. He said that, ‘NO, it’s not about closure. It is about how the exodus was justified for years and years. The double standards of the industry must be called out.’
In the same event, Vivek Agnihotri stated that it is not based on a true story, it is a true story. Every word in this movie, every scene is a recreation of the gruesome reality that happened three decades ago. It is based on video interviews with first-generation victims of the Kashmir Genocide. If someone proves that he manipulated any part of the story, he will retract it.
One of the opening lines by Actor Chinmay Mandlekar in the beginning of the trailer where he claims that he has murdered roughly 25 people and that he will not stop even if it means killing his own brother or mother, has left us thinking till what extent people were brainwashed.
To those who still don’t know about the genocide in 1990, this movie can be traumatizing and a reality check to the so called ‘Humanity’. Approximately 100,000 of Kashmiri Pandit out of around 140,000 had to leave Kashmir which is called Paradise on Earth. Around 3000 families remained in the valley, while most of them had to live in shelters in their own motherland.
Let us remind you, that Bollywood has tried to justify or romanticized what happened during the exodus in 1990. From blaming the Kashmiri Pandits about taking up all the prime high prestige jobs to saying that these people were ‘Sataye hue’ the propaganda is been pushed still. During one of the screening of Shikara by Vidhu Vinod Chopra that why didn’t he have the courage of showing the radical ideology that forced Hindus out of the valley.
Vivek Agnihotri is famous for the movies which creates awareness amongst the viewers about certain decorated subjects. Let’s say being more aware makes you less woke. ‘Buddha In A Traffic Jam’ was allegedly based on Urban-Naxalite, while ‘The Tashkent Files’ revolved around the mysterious death of our second Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri. If you haven’t watched these two yet, it might be a good time to do so before ‘The Kashmir Files.’
