INDIA: The makers of ‘The Kashmiri Files’ have released another riveting poster of National Award-winning actor Pallavi Joshi, following the release of intriguing motion posters of Mithun Chakraborty and Anupam Kher.
The Kashmiri Files is based on the true story of the excruciating genocide of Kashmiri Hindus in the 1990s, which resulted in the forced exodus of thousands of Hindus from their homeland. The film is written and directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, who has previously directed notable films such as Buddha in a Traffic Jam (2016) and The Tashkent Files (2019). Among his works, The Tashkent Files was a smash hit.
The film’s ensemble cast includes National Awardee winners Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, and Pallavi Joshi. It also stars prominent actors such as Prakash Belawadi, Puneet Issar, Chinmay Mandlekar, Darshan Kumaar, Bhasha Sumbli, Amaan Iqbal, Prithviraj Sarnaik, and Atul Srivastava.
After a long delay due to pandemic, the film will finally be released on 26th January 2022. In anticipation of the release, the film has published character motion posters. Which stars Anupam Kher as Pushkar Nath Pandit, Mithun Chakraborty as Brahma Dutt, Pallavi Joshi as Radhika Menon, Darshan Kumaar as Krishna Pandit, Chinmay Mandlekar as Farooq Malik, Bhasha Sumbli as Sharda Pandit, Prithviraj Sarnaik as Shiva Pandit, and Atul Srivastava as Vishnu.
Pallavi Joshi emerges as an Urban Naxal
In the motion poster, we get a proper glimpse of Pallavi’s face with a serious look, while the poster reads “No Electon”. In fanatic tone her character is heard saying, “Kashmir has never been an integral part of India and this is a historical fact. Agar India Britain se apni Independence ke liye lad sakti hai toh Kashmir Kyun nahi?”, (“If India can fight for its independence from Britain then why not Kashmir?’’)The dialogue establishes her character as Professor Radhika Menon, who is a professor in a university, where students do everything as a reformer except studies. Pallavi’s character can be described as a highly tense activist in the utopia of revolution. She inspires her students to participate in Kashmir’s Azadi. Her character can be compared to today’s professors who have become pseudo-activists in the majority of universities. According to Vivek Sir, her character can also be described as an Urban Naxal.
