Now ‘The Kashmir Files’ is streaming on ZEE 5

The Kashmir Files is a 2022 Indian Hindi-language drama film, written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri. The film presents a fictional storyline centered around an exodus of Kashmiri Hindus in the disputed region of Kashmir. It depicts the early 1990s exodus to be a genocide, a notion that is widely considered inaccurate and associated with conspiracy theories.

Now The Kashmir Files is streaming on OTT of ZEE 5 in Telugu, Hindi, and Tamil, Kannada languages. The Kashmir Files stars Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, and Pallavi Joshi.

The plot follows a Kashmiri Hindu college student, raised by his exiled grandfather and shielded from the knowledge of the circumstances of the death of his parents. After his grandfather’s death, the student, who had come to believe at college that the exodus was benign, becomes driven to uncover the facts of his family’s deaths. The plot alternates between the student’s quest in the present time, 2020, and his family’s travails of thirty years before.

The film was released in theatres on 11 March 2022. It has been a commercial success, seemingly benefitting from promotion by India’s ruling Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party.

Supporters have praised the film for showing what they say is an overlooked aspect of Kashmir’s history.
