Movie Info

A teenage British Kashmiri, Noor, retraces her roots. She is joined by Majid, a local Kashmiri boy who is more smitten by her exotic foreignness than her obsession to unravel the mysteries of their disappeared fathers. Much against his better judgement, Majid finds himself guiding Noor to a forbidden area in the Indo-Pak border fraught with danger : wild bears, ghosts of the past and army patrols. They stumble upon a dark secret that they shouldn't have seen and Majid's worst fears are realised : they are set upon by an army patrol. Being British, Noor is released but Majid is detained for questioning. Having put him into peril, how far is Noor willing to go to have Majid released? And, can love ever be the same again for these two? This is a story of forgiveness and hope, seen through the playful eyes of innocent teenagers. From the world's deadliest conflict, based on hundreds of true stories, this tender storm of first-love and heart-break echoes Kashmir's own story in surprising and revealing ways.

Critic Reviews for No Fathers in Kashmir

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

[A] well-meaning but clunky drama.

January 26, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's a film of awful line-readings, badly edited conversations (too many gaps) and, a first for me, a character who even struggles to convince while saying these two words: "Absolutely not."

January 23, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This is a urgent issue that needs raising, but I have to confess to being restive during this movie: the performances and line-readings were often underpowered.

January 22, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sometimes stunning, sometimes stressful and all together sobering view of a situation that [writer-director Ashvin Kumar] seasons with hope.

April 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Ashvin Kumar is gutsy enough to discuss the issues that plague Kashmir under a government that has revved up the nationalist discourse to a fever pitch.

January 9, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The impact of the quality writing, the steady cinematography and the sharp editing is enhanced significantly by a cast of actors who strike the right notes all the way.

July 20, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
