Article 370 Movie Review


In 2022, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri touched a nerve when he released The Kashmir Files, a film that focused on the 1990 migration of Kashmiri Hindus and painted the events leading up to it as a genocide, a storyline that many saw as provocative and propaganda. The film also featured its protagonist demanding the repeal of Article 370, but it never got into the nitty-gritty of what that meant or how it would affect the lives of people in Jammu and Kashmir.

Yami Gautam and Priyamani play the two forces pushing this powerful tale, and the film informs, educates, and keeps you committed for the most part. For anyone who is vaguely aware of what Article 370 stands for, its existence and abrogation, but has never taken the time to understand its significance or relevance, this 2 hour 30 minute film is nothing short of an impactfully narrated chapter that delves deeper into the complexities of politics and, in a much simpler manner, presents an engaging watch for the average viewer to understand.
