Shikara movie review

Story of the movie:

Shikara opens with the main protagonist Dr Shiv Kumar Dhar typing a letter for the President of United States to imbue his feelings as a Kashmiri Pandit. Soon, in flashback, we are introduced to Shiv and his wife Shanti’s (Sadia) younger days in the valley of Kashmir. We get a glimpse into how their blossoming romance culminates into marriage. Things are bright for the Dhar couple. Until they are struck with the horrific exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in January 19, 1990. Left with no other choice, Shiv and Shanti are forced to flee their homeland and seek refuge at a camp in Jammu, with the promise that they will return back to their home in Kashmir some day.

Aadil Khan delivers a brilliant performance. Sadia also look confident in her role. While, others have done justice to their roles.
