Shikara discusses the love story of a young newlywed couple in the backdrop of the evacuation of thousands of Kashmiri pandits. Check out the Shikara review shared by Twitterati before you make your weekend plans.
A movie set on the 1990 mass evacuation of the Kashmiri pandits from Kashmir, Shikara promises to take the audiences through the plight and troubles of the people. Focusing on a newlywed couple, Shiv Kumar Dhar played by Aadil Khan and Shanti Dhar portrayed by Sadia who are very much in love have deep admiration for the place they call home. The story gradually shows us the sad exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits. While the movie discusses the story of the couple and shows the audience the picturesque beauty of Kashmir, it hurts when the people are forced to leave their house at gunpoint. However, As the present tag line of the movie suggests, Vidhu Vinod Chopra focuses on the love story rather than the reason behind the exile of the people. Only a few of the many reasons behind the exile of the Kashmiri Pandits have been touched upon in the film, painting half a picture. He has focused on the love story amidst the chaos, the want of the people to go back to their place and to live the rest of their life there. Check out the Shikara review shared by netizens before you book your tickets.
Here is desi Twitterati’s Shikara review:
It has secularised the #HinduGenocide in #Kashmir and romanticised it for the mega bucks it will make.
Our homes and murders are a mere prop in this story.
Massacres, rapes and vandalised temples must've been too gory to qualify for even a prop, in a love story.

With emotional appeal Vidhu Vinod Chopra declared that movie will show true story of Kashmiri pandits. Turned out to be a shitty movie with no sense of reality. PR based on atrocities and movie made on secularisation of crimes. #Shikara
