Karan Johar, the filmmaker, has lauded the latest release The Kashmir Files, describing it as a’movement.’ The filmmaker stated that the video could serve as a lesson in content management for aspiring filmmakers. Vivek Agnihotri directed The Kashmir Files, which premiered to critical acclaim on March 11. The film was also a box office triumph, grossing more than 250 crore.
The Kashmir Files is a documentary concerning the evacuation and assassination of Kashmiri Pandits in the early 1990s Kashmir valley. Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, and Darshan Kumaar lead in the film, which also features an ensemble cast. The film, which was made on a shoestring budget of roughly 15 crore, has outperformed all trade forecasts at the box office. It performed better at the box office in India than other larger films such as 83, Gangubai Kathiawadi, and Sooryavanshi.
Karan told Galatta Plus during a debate about filmmaking and writing, “The Kashmir Files was not done on a shoestring budget, as many other films are. However, it is likely to be the most profitable film in Indian cinema in terms of cost-to-profit. According to what I read on Box Office India, such a movement hasn’t occurred since Jai Santoshi Maa in 1975.”
The filmmaker continued by discussing the film’s mass appeal and how prospective filmmakers may learn from it. “You have to accept that something is connecting this nation, and you have to keep an eye on it academically. You must see it in order to absorb, to learn from it, that look, this movement that has occurred. It is no longer a film; it has evolved into a movement “‘He stated.
Numerous Bollywood celebrities, including Kangana Ranaut and Abhishek Bachchan, have lauded the film. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah have also backed the film, describing it as a ‘essential film’.
