National Award-winning director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri shook the nation with his hard-hitting blockbuster cinematic masterpiece, The Kashmir Files, in 2022. Although the feature film was over three hours long, it only touched upon the tip of the iceberg of all the tragic events that affected the residents of the picturesque state. To give a complete picture of the horrific happenings, Agnihotri and his team are going to make their series titled The Kashmir Files Unreported available for streaming on ZEE5 Global in select countries very soon. This article will tell you exactly how the ZEE5 Original series will achieve that goal. Read on to learn more.
For starters, The Kashmir Files Unreported, which will only be available for streaming in select countries, is far more than just your average series. It is an in-depth and nuanced look at the overall political scenario of Kashmir during the darkest time in its history. Additionally, it is also a study of the agendas and underlying motives of those individuals who turned a heaven-like state into the warzone that it eventually came to be known as. If that is not enough, the web series also explores the rich history of Kashmir and its cultural and spiritual importance to India.
ZEE5 Global’s The Kashmir Files Unreported achieves the aforementioned goals through a series of interviews, real-life survivor stories, and archived footage of the interrogations of the perpetrators that have been woven together to make one hard-hitting web series. All of the stories, footage, and interviews that we just spoke about were collected or taped by Agnihotri and his team over the four years that the director spent researching for the 2022 blockbuster, which sees Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi, Bhasha Sumbli, Mithun Chakraborty, and Darshan Kumar in pivotal roles. Some of the interviews that are a part of this web series are with renowned journalists and scholars on the subject, like Padma Shri awardee Dr. Meenakshi Jain, Rakesh K. Kaul, author of ‘The Last Queen of Kashmir’ and ‘Dawn: The Warrior Princess of Kashmir,’ and Shesh Paul Vaid, the former Director General of Police of J&K, amongst others.
The trailer for The Kashmir Files Undocumented, which made its way to the internet on July 21, 2023, will give the viewers of this soon-to-be-released series a sense of how all of it has been put together. The trailer also touches upon the way in which the harrowing archived footage has been used to depict the true story of the horror that plagued the state before the abolition of Article 370, which eventually changed the course of affairs in the state to some extent.
These are only some of the ways in which The Kashmir Files Unreported will bring you the spine-chilling real-life story of a war-ridden heartland that was once purely known as India’s center of knowledge. If you are wondering how you can catch this series upon its release, you can either watch it on the website of ZEE5 Global or download an application for it on your mobile device. The application is available for Android, iOS, and various media streaming devices such as the Amazon Fire TV stick and Apple TV. If you have a Smart TV, you can find the app for the same in its application store as well. Keep in mind that the docuseries will only be available for streaming in select countries.
