JAMMU: The Kashmir Files a Hindi movie based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Valley in 1990 was released here today by the makers. It was screened at KC PVR Cinema where the house was full as per authorized capacity.
The Kashmir Files is not an easy film to watch, it makes you realise that if we are alive today, it’s a privilege and not something that should be taken for granted, said S K Bali to Greater Jammu.
“The movie is very much close to the truth of exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990. “It is very close to the incident which forced the Kashmir Pandits to leave the valley. I have seen the bloodshed and Kashmiri Pandit genocide and each scene of ‘The Kashmir Files’ shows the pain of Kashmiri Pandit community,” Bali added. Akriti Koul said, “Mostly we watch the movie for entertainment purpose but this movie is more than the entertainment, it is informative and eye opening for all of us and especially the young generation of Kashmiri Pandit Community.”
Koul thanked Vivek Agnihotri for making the movie on atrocities which caused exodus of Kashmiri Pandits.
“While watching the movie all of us were crying incessantly seeing the horrible past of our life”, she added.
The storyline is pretty simple, it is the unvarnished truth of what happened to our parents (Kashmiri Pandits) and the fate they met at the hands of Islamic terrorists. It shows just how craftily young men and women are brainwashed to believe that no genocide really took place in Kashmir and the Hindus simply left the Valley by repeating this tale over the past 32 years and convinced themselves because of a lie spread by the politicians as per their propaganda,” one of the young girl said.
‘The Kashmir Files’ breaks the glass ceiling in more ways than one way as for the first time Bollywood has shown the guts to tell the brutally and unvarnished truth about the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits honestly which have been denied by the Government for the last 32 years, she added.
We salute Vivek Agnihotri for showing the guts to tell the truth of Kashmiri Pandits exodus including suffering, massacres, torture and conversion, said one of the senior citizen.
