Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)

Some movies touch the right chords of our hearts and that’s what No Fathers In Kashmir does. Ashvin Kumar has come up with a story that shows us the reality of Kashmir we are not aware of. The kind of relationship that Indian Army and the locals of Kashmir share.


I visited Kashmir a few months ago and have heard stories from locals about people disappearing and how their families are still waiting for them to come back. There are scenes that will give you goosebumps and there are scenes that will make your eyes teary.


From clothes to the style of talking, Ashvin has very well done his research on the subject he is making the film. He is an Oscar nominated director and proves his mettle once again with a brave film like No Fathers In Kashmir.


The biggest element that works here is the cinematography done by Jean-Marc Selva. He has captured Kashmir wonderfully and though the film is quite intense, it is his cinematography that makes it a delightful watch.

Abhineta (Actors)

No Fathers In Kashmir is led by two actors, Zara Webb and Shivam Raina. These two child artists have nailed it. Zara has acted through her eyes showcasing every emotion with perfection.

Soni Razdan has an extended cameo and does her part well. Director Ashvin Kumar plays one of the most important characters in the film and he is simply excellent. Anshuman Jha as the army major is good in his part.

Geet Sangeet (Music)

There’s no song and dance here, the lead actors don’t break into doing Bumbro Bumbro,  but it still has the perfect flavour of Kashmir. The background score is just apt and the few lines of Kashmir folk songs gel well with the film.

Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)

No Fathers In Kashmir is clearly not your run of a mill movie. It will be hard for a lot to digest the harsh reality of the most beautiful place on earth. But it’s a must watch to know what happens with the locals of Kashmir.

While we are in a phase right now where most of the films look like a propaganda, here’s something different for Indian audience.
