    The Kashmir Files is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language film written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Abhishek Agarwal starring Mithun Chakraborty and Anupam Kher. The film tells the story of the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus in the early 1990's India.
    'The Kashmir Files': A remarkable film that brings out gory truth about Hindu genocide in the Valley-India News , Firstpost

    Ahead of the release of the film, The Kashmir Files, director Vivek Agnihotri said that he and his family have been receiving threats. As a result, he had to deactivate his Twitter account..
    I am so thankful this director had the guts to make this movie.

    The genocide of the kashmiri pundits has always been brushed under the carpet in a bid to keep up the secular image of india.
    Looking forward to seeing this one.

    The Kashmir Files' is a story, based on video interviews of the first generation victims of the Genocide of Kashmiri Pandit Community In 1990

    Bereft of their roots, their homes, their temples, and their leaders, the Kashmiri Hindu community has lived a scattered existence, flung across parts of India and the globe. With justice denied for over three decades, many who survived the horrors of that time have passed on or are getting too frail to share their testimonies.

    Kashmir Files will be available on Zee5 starting tomorrow May 13. Looking forward to watching it.

    Wish it were also on Netflix or Prime. None of my friends have Zee5. Discussing a movie after watching is part of watching it.

    I have seen it. It is not a movie but a documentary. It has no disclaimer as normally happens in documentaries and Movies depicting historical events.
    No one can deny the atrocities that the Kashmiri Pandits faced as it happened right before our eyes when we were young enough to understand. I had many Kashmiri friends in Delhi.
    It is also true that no Government did anything to mitigate their hardships. It is one thing to shed crocodile tears and exactly another to do something concrete. The documentary only does that.
    One more Kashmiri Pandit has been killed in Srinagar, yesterday. I do not think, anyone will return to Kashmiri under the prevailing circumstances.

    The movie atleast brought what happened to kashmiri hindus.
    No media covered this much.
    Nothing is written in history books about this.

    I watched it in Zee5 but couldn't continue after a few minutes. Generally, that kind of violence I don't like to view as it affects my mind more than what I read. I am more a visual person, I guess. It is painful to note that this kind of violence is happening in some part of the world all the time unnoticed.

    I am sure there will be a movie taken soon how the Indian military crushed the civilians in Kashmir to control terrorism emanating from across the border. No matter who is victimized, which religion they belong, what is the ground for such atrocities, it should be condemned uniformly without hesitation.

    In general, I noticed movies like Bombay had only increased the emotions and affected the harmonious relationships, if any existed between religions. I feel every movie is taken with an intend to sensitize an issue and monetize that sensitivity. I don't think any film-maker is doing it with an intend to bring to light something.
