The Kashmir Files: A Movie Review

In this article, I will be reviewing the movie “The Kashmir Files” and how the film’s content impacts society. Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) is the only state in India that has been under the administration of another nation since 1948. The invaders of 1947, who were called ‘neo-colonial’ by both Indian nationalists as well as Pakistani ideologues, entered the province with a clear objective: to separate J&K from the rest of India. This overt desire for separation was reflected in Pakistan’s first Prime Minister Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s speech at the All-India Muslim League session held

What is this movie about?

The Kashmir Files is a movie about the Kashmir conflict between India and Pakistan. It follows the story of a group of soldiers who are trapped in an ambush at a place called Shangrila Peak, which is near the Line of Control that separates India from Pakistan. The soldiers get lost and end up in an area without cell phones or any communication with their base and are attacked by militants. They have to evade this attack to find their way back home.

The Pros and Cons of the Movie

The Kashmir Files is a newly released movie that explores the Kashmir dispute. It follows three British journalists who are investigating the conflict and end up in a hostage situation. The film was directed by Emily Thorne, a relative newcomer to Hollywood and has received mixed reviews. Some reviewers have praised the film for its intense action sequences, while others have found it to be too violent without enough plot development.

Why I liked the Movie

In a world where the lines between fiction and reality have become blurred, movies are a way for people to imagine what it would be like if they were in the story. In this movie, Kashmir goes on a quest to find her parents who she thought had died years ago. Along with her uncle, she must defeat an evil magician who has conquered the world and enslaves its inhabitants. The movie is packed with action scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end!

Thoughts on the Cast

The cast of the movie was very diverse. They had different types of people from different parts of the world and different walks of life, which does make for a more interesting dynamic in the film. However, there were some things that were jarring about the casting. For example, Jackson Rathbone was playing a Kashmiri man and he didn’t even have an accent. The only reason it would be okay is if he was playing a character who was supposed to be American–but that’s not what happened here. Furthermore, some actors had accents while others did not.


The movie starts with a Muslim extremist being assassinated in the name of America, and it goes from there. Though the story had some interesting twists and turns, it was a little hard to follow at time as it jumped around from present day to past and then back again. The movie does end on a high note, though.
