Since October of last year, a number of targeted killings have occurred in Kashmir. Migrant labourers and Kashmiri Pandits made up a large portion of the victims.
Seven civilians were killed in five days in October, including two migrant Hindus, a Sikh, and a Kashmiri Pandit.
Many Kashmiri Pandit families left their homes in the Valley shortly after that.
Rahul Bhat, 36, a Kashmiri Pandit who earned a government position as part of a package for the community that was compelled to abandon the Valley during the wave of militancy in the 1990s, was shot and killed by terrorists in Budgam’s tehsildar’s office in May.
The minority community protested in large numbers as a result of the tragedy. Kashmiri Pandits organised protests during which they sang anti-government chants and questioned whether the government had brought them back to the Valley to be slaughtered.
Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
