Directed and written by Vivek Agnihotri, The Kashmir Files starring Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumaar and Mithun Chakraborty in the lead roles has hit the theatres across India yesterday (March 11, 2022) and guess what? On the second day of its release, the film has become the victim of piracy. Yes, you read it right! The Kashmir Files full movie has been leaked online by several notorious sites and we feel bad for the makers.
The film is based on the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits during 1990. Those who are unaware, the mass migration happened in February-March 1990, when several Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homeland, as their lives were in danger.
The film has been receiving positive response from film critics and netizens. Check out their reactions below...
"#OneWordReview... #TheKashmirFiles: BRILLIANT. Rating: ⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️½ #TheKashmirFiles is the most powerful film on #Kashmir and the genocide and exodus of #KashmiriPandits... Hard-hitting, blunt, brutally honest... JUST DON'T MISS IT.
Director #VivekRanjanAgnihotri takes a bold stand [asks uncomfortable questions], hits out at the political machinery [for shutting their eyes and ears] and recreates the massacre and brutality on screen [without whitewashing or suppressing the events]."
"Review - #TheKashmirFiles Rating - 4.5*/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟 For Me The Kashmir Files has to be the most hard hitting film I have ever seen in my entire life, Watch it only if you have courage.... vivekagnihotri has made a Phenomenal film, his career best film... #TheKashmirFilesReview."

"What a movie. Completely UNFILTERED. #TheKashmirFiles have hit me really hard. The smile on the pictures shows how happy and proud we're of vivekagnihotri and the entire team for making a movie on #KashmirGenocide. Finally someone dared to pick this inconvenient issue."
"This is truly unbelievable and way too emotional. Amazing to see the kind of impact that vivekagnihotri's #TheKashmirFiles has already started making! AnupamPKher #MithunChakraborty #DarshanKumar #PallaviJoshi."
"#TheKashmirFiles - AnupamPKher performance as pushkar nath will send shivers down your spine, his career best act, whereas Darshan Kumar and number of artist did absolute justice to their character. Hats off to the makers to make a film on the blackest day in India."
"It is said, we have but one great idea, great book, great film, great role, inside of us; only one. Don't know if AnupamPKher would take this as a compliment or a slight, but in #TheKashmirFiles he has exhausted this boon. Would be impossible for him to better it. Pure genius."
"#TheKashmirFiles - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ MOST BRUTAL CHAPTER OF INDEPENDENT INDIA - The MASS GENOCIDE OF KASHMIRI PANDITS manifested with UNFILTERED FACTS in this vivekagnihotri directorial. Every Indian must watch this masterpiece #TheKashmiriFiles Today."
Clearly, the film has hit the right chord with the audience, as the netizens could not stop raving about Agnihotri's directorial.
