Written, produced and directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Shikara tells a love story set during the horrific exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990.
Shiv Kumar and Shanti Dhar (played by newcomers Aadil Khan and Sadia) are a newly married Kashmiri Pandit couple who live in Srinagar, in a house they call Shikara.
At the end of 1989, when Shiv’s friend’s father is killed in an encounter between the Indian Army and militants, the Dhars’ happy life is turned upside down. A few weeks later, Jammu & Kashmir is plunged into conflict once again, this time with Islamist militants baying for the blood of Kashmiri Hindus.

Shiv and Shanti are forced out of Shikara with their family and flee to Jammu as refugees. The next 30 years are spent living in a refugee camp, writing, teaching, fighting for justice and hoping that, one day, they will return to Shikara.
The movie takes you right into the pain and the trauma of being torn away from your home. What it does not do is take you into the political realities of it.
The Kashmiri Pandit exodus is not the story, it is a prop, used as the background for what is essentially a love story. While it is a beautifully told haunting love story, it is not a political drama or the ‘untold story of Kashmiri Pandits’ that it claims to be.

Things are bright for the Dhar couple. Until they are struck with the horrific exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in January 19, 1990. Left with no other choice, Shiv and Shanti are forced to flee their homeland and seek refuge at a camp in Jammu.
A film can hardly be detached from the time it is releasing in. Kashmir today holds the record for India’s — and arguably the world’s — longest Internet shut down, with reports of human rights violations in the dark.
In this scenario, the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990 is often used for political whataboutery, pitting one human rights violation against another. Shikara walks this tricky terrain, where the impact of the film cannot be retained in the confines of a cinema hall.
Perhaps aware of this, filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra contains the narrative to ‘personal’ experience, with loss of home, lives, identity and dignity of a Kashmiri Pandit couple, delivering a bland, simplistic and tepid weepy, which in itself isn’t incendiary.
But by stripping the story off of any political and historical context, conflict or depth, the film stands at the danger of feeding into a one-sided perspective, in an already polarising time.
