Film based on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus
‘The Kashmir Files’ focuses on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from Indian-administered Kashmir in the 1990s. In this, the exodus and the events related to it are depicted as genocide, which is considered wrong by many people. ‘The Kashmir Files’ stars Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar and Pallavi Joshi.
The story centers on a Kashmiri Hindu college student who is raised by his grandfather and kept from knowing the circumstances of his parents’ death. After the death of his grandfather, the student tries to know the facts of his family’s death.
