The Honest Critique

The Filmmaker from the valley

The Filmmaker from the valley

Kashmir has been misrepresented by Bollywood for a long time. Lush green hills, shikara rides, Dal lake and fetishization of ordinary Kashmiris are the imageries you find in a Bollywood movie. Ashvin is one of the only directors who have tried to give a human side to the conflict and narrated the story of Kashmiris like never before. After two successful documentaries and a decade long experience in Kashmir,  Ashvin makes a coming-of-age film about friendship, hope and peace told through the innocent eyes of Noor-a British Kashmiri teenager.   India's youngest Oscar-nominated director, Ashvin Kumar joins Ratnadeep Chakraborty to talk about his new film 'No Fathers in Kashmir' ahead of its global release on January 24.  Click on the link below to watch 'No Fathers in Kashmir'- --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
