The Kashmir Files Review

In the year 2020, a film named ‘Shikara’ was directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. This film was also based on the massacre and exodus of Kashmiri Pandits and Hindus. Vidhu Vinod Chopra tried to depict the suffering of Kashmiri people through a love story, but Vivek Agnihotri tried to show a different story through ‘The Kashmir Files’.

He has tried to narrate the story of Kashmiri Hindus in a deep and very harsh way through this film. He takes us to a completely different world. There are many such scenes in the film which will give you goosebumps. The film will keep you glued to your seat the entire time. The story of the film is good and Vivek Agnihotri seems completely successful in his work.
