Shikara is the story of resilience in the face of insurmountable odds. It’s also the story of a love that remains unextinguished through 30 years of exile. A timeless love story in the worst of times.
The trailer of Shikara, directed and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, was released on the 6th of January. The movie, set to hit the screens on the 7th of February, will tell “the story of resilience in the face of insurmountable odds.” “It’s also the story of a love that remains unextinguished through 30 years of exile. A timeless love story in the worst of times,” the makers say.
The trailer of the movie looks fantastic and it appears that the movie is the first venture by Bollywood to accurately depict what happened to Kashmiri Pandits all those years ago. Although one can expect the movie to include some sort of token symbolism which would sing paeans to secularism and tolerance to tone down the overarching message and to negate allegations of bigotry, it is still expected to be a definitive shift in the Overton Window in the entertainment industry.
In the trailer, chants of ‘Azadi’ can be heard in the background as genocidal mobs run rampage on the streets. The visuals capture the terror that Kashmiri Pandits must have felt in 1990 very well. The movie will surely ruffle a lot of feathers as it has been an unsaid rule in the entertainment industry for a great many years to maintain a stoic silence over Islamic fanaticism.
Efforts are currently being made to turn slogans of ‘Azadi’ into a fancy call revolution but a slogan that is soaked with the blood of the innocents could never hope to become something completely antithetical to what it was. Just like in 1990, ‘Azadi’ was symbolic of the deep-seated anti-Hindu bigotry among Kashmiri Muslims, 30 years later, the slogan is still symbolic of the same brand of hatred. The trailer serves as a chilling reminder to those who believe ‘Azadi’ is a slogan for peace.
As expected, some people are not pleased with the turn of events. According to some people, “given the state of the country right now and the vast Islamophobia that’s making the country burn right now, isn’t it odd that the creators are planning on releasing the movie now?” The sentiments are not that of one individual, it’s a sentiment that serves as the foundation for secularism in India.
The film was evidently under the radar as it does not contain any major stars. The film features two new faces who haven’t worked in mainstream cinema before this. Actor Sadia and Aadil Khan are set to make a debut in the film industry.
The two debutants will be seen essaying the characters of Shanti Dhar and Shiv Kumar Dhar respectively. The trailer introduces the two leading characters snuggled away in the corner of their home reading poetries but are later forced to flee their homeland as a fire emerges.
