After a long wait, No Fathers In Kashmir has released in cinemas across the country. Directed by Ashvin Kumar, who is an Oscar nominated director with two National Awards in his kitty, the film tells the tale of despair and love of the people of Kashmir through two young souls Noor and Majid.

The film stars Shivam Raina, Ashvin Kumar, Soni Razdan, Zara Webb, Maya Sarao, Anshuman Jha and Kulbhushan Kharbanda.

While the film has received unanimous good reviews from the critics, members of the film industry too have given a thumbs up and showered it with great praises.

From Alia Bhatt to acclaimed director Mira Nair, celebrities from Bollywood have championed the film since its special screening last week.

Here’s what some of them said.

Alia Bhatt

The film is a powerful reminder of Kashmir’s heartbreaking half state. There is a frightening honesty to scenes, a strong cast, and a special mention goes to Maya Sarao for tugging at our heart strings with her performance.

Mira Nair

I think its a very brave film and its a timely film, a film that we should see and keep seeing. It’s also a moving film and its beautifully performed and skilfully made. I thinks it’s also poignant to see war through the eyes of the children.

The haunting silences and the innocence of ‘ no fathers in Kashmir’ made me revisit the grief of the Kashmir situation. Beautifully made film with some delicate performances
