Article 370 movie review – Yami Gautam and Priyamani deliver flawless performance in this film on Kashmir politics

Article 370

‘Article 370’, directed by Aditya Suhas Jambhale, is a well-made film that will try your patience due to its 2 hours and 40 minutes of running time. The first half, which is squandered on establishing the plot, could have been easily cut by the director. The movie crawls more slowly than a tortoise, but in the second part, it awakens and sprints, more quickly than a hare, to the finish line with well-paced drama and predictable turns.

Honest Article 370 movie review:

The Yami Gautam and Priyamani starrer film, which is set between 2015 and 2019, is structured into six chapters similar to any History or Civic book. It attempts to convey the terrifying story of Kashmir’s repeated betrayals by politicians and bureaucrats. To maintain their hold on power, they have permitted radicalization and are still brainwashing the youth to support ‘Azaadi‘ and act as stone pelters. Even though the film’s creators refer to it as ‘inspired,’ you can’t help but notice how the two leaders of Kashmir have been portrayed as Mehbooba Mufti and Farooq Abdullah, albeit in a more sinister way.

Giving credit where credit is due, the filmmakers refrained from doing what is most obviously done in these films these days, which is to criticize Pakistan or Muslims. Furthermore, there are no overtly desh bhakti songs or corny dialogues to demonstrate one’s patriotism. The film has a high production value, something that producer Aditya Dhar accomplished in “Uri” (2019). ‘Article 370‘ is not jingoistic, but it is geared toward propagandizing the BJP government in the run-up to the general elections.

The only ministers in the movie who appear to have heart are Arun Govil and Kiran Karmarkar, who play Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, respectively, in amateurish ways. As the introduction, narrated by Ajay Devgn, attempts to hold the first prime minister accountable for the “blunder” in Kashmir, Jawaharlal Nehru has also not been spared.

You may want to research the real history of the Kashmiri movement for autonomy because of some of the film’s unpersuasive theories about it. It seems that the Prime Minister intended for “Article 370” to be “helpful for people to get correct information.”
