Last year when the movie, “The Kashmir Files” was released, it created a lot of hype and buzz among the common people and celebrities. While most of them loved the Vivek Agnihotri directorial, others were vocal about their dislike of the film.The theme handled in the movie made everyone speak about it. The movie’s theme was the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus/pandits from Kashmir.
Recently, a filmmaker from Israel, Nadav Lapid, criticized this movie heavily at an IFFI event. As a fitting reply to this criticism, Vivek Agnihotri has announced that his documentary, “The Kashmir Files – Unreported” will stream on the OTT platform, ZEE5 from August 11 onwards. This documentary will focus on the investigation of the history of the Kashmir conflicts, the impact of the conflicts on the common people living there and the origin of the enmity between India & Pakistan.
Starring Vivek Agnihotri himself and his talented wife, Pallavi Joshi, this documentary will be a 7-episode series, in which each episode will throw light on a different angle of the Kashmir conflicts. The couple’s banner, IamBuddha Entertainment and Media LLP has produced this documentary. The team visited the Shankaracharya Temple in Kashmir as part of its promotional campaign. The trailer, released on 21 July, received a lot of appreciation from the Indians. Many felt that Agnihotri’s story brought tears to their eyes instantly. However, as expected, Pakistanis didn’t receive this well, and they criticized the trailer heavily.
A couple of days ago, Agnihotri, on his official Twitter handle, announced “The Kashmir Files – Unreported” would start streaming on ZEE5 from August 11 onwards.
