What J Sai Deepak tweeted about the movie
‘The Kashmir Files’ has been receiving a lot of appreciation from the viewers as well as critics. Many reviews, tweets, videos have been doing rounds on social media about the film based on the brutal, inhuman genocide of Kashmiri Hindus.
Amongst the reviews is one such review penned down by J Sai Deepak in his 30 – tweet thread which gives a complete perspective of Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’.
J Sai Deepak is a Counsel, Supreme Court/ Delhi High Court, and an alumnus of the IIT-K. J Sai Deepak is an engineer-turned-lawyer practicing as an arguing counsel before the Supreme Court of India and the High Court of Delhi has authored the book “India that is Bharat: Coloniality, Civilisation, Constitution.”
He started his tweet by saying, “This is my promised thread on Vivek Agnihotri ji’s The Kashmir Files. Before & after d amendments to Article 370, I did a fair bit of reading on Kashmir including documents on the portal iKashmir, and books by Shri Jagmohan and @rahulpandita. So in that sense I “knew”.
He adds, “But nothing, I repeat nothing, could have prepared me for the visceral impact of The Kashmir Files. As a hardcore movie buff, if there is a movie in my memory that captures d sheer power of d cinematic medium to give expression to facts, it has to be The Kashmir Files.”
He pointed out the fact that the movie puts forth about Kashmir, student politics, education, the Marxist negation of documented facts & its extra-warm relations with Islamists. “The movie is not a mere collage of known events. Even that would be an achievement given d current state of Bollywood. But the movie goes much beyond that & invests in multiple layers in every scene, from faith to loss of home to hope to realisation of apathy & finally d denial,” he added.
J Sai Deepak went on to add that the film shows the inhuman torture that the Kashmiri Hindus went through, “From being forced to eat rice soaked in the blood of her husband to the prescient passing image of the *saw mill* when she drops her son Shiva at the school, you know all thru the movie what she is going to be put thru & U brace yourself for it. And even that doesn’t prepare U,” he wrote.
He further added, “If you believe that you don’t have the guts to watch this movie, effectively you have lost the right to opine on this Civilisation. If you can’t even watch, you can’t be expected to stand up for Civilisation when the time comes. So grow a spine, watch, internalise & channel.”

‘The Kashmir Files’ is a story that had to be told to the young generation who are unaware of the genocide, the suffering & the pain of the Kashmiri Hindus. The movie exposes leftist propaganda and their selective outrage.
However, despite all the sufferings, the Kashmiri Hindus still stay as a refuge in their own country for the last 30 years, waiting to return to their hometown.
