Yami Gautam made her Hindi film debut with Vicky Donor (2012) as Ashima Roy. Going from strength to strength over the years, she has now taken on the mantle of Zooni Haksar’s character in her film Article 370, which is releasing in theatres on February 23 . Set against the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status granted to the state by Article 370; the film’s gripping trailer showed Yami Gautam in a tough and convincing role.   

Now, since the Hindi political-action potboiler is ready to hit theatres, we list 5 reasons to watch Yami’s film on the big screen:  

An Aditya Suhas Jambhale film  

Helmed by two-time National Award-winning film director, Aditya Suhas Jambhale, Article 370 promises to be a bang for your buck kind of movie for Hindi cinema lovers. Aditya’s first short film - Aaba Aiktaay Naa? - took home the 64th National Film Awards' Golden Lotus for Best Direction. His second short film Kharvas was chosen for the inaugural Indian Panorama (NF) at IFFI in 2018, and it was awarded the National Award for Best Short film in 2019. Besides, his epic drama Vande Mataram has earned him the distinction of being the youngest writer in India. His most recent national integration film production, Amritsar Junction, delves into the tensions that influenced India's 1947 partition.  


Yami’s second outing as a tough cop  

Yami played an intense undercover RAW agent Jasmine D'Almeida/ Pallavi Sharma in her husband Aditya Dhar-directorial Uri: The Surgical Strike in 2019. Now, it will be exciting to see her take up screen space yet again for a movie based on national integration and cross-border conflict – Article 370. The teaser and the trailer already showed her acting chops. The teaser depicts Yami Gautam's dynamic cop character introducing herself, while adding that, of all the 29 states, Kashmir gets the most cash from the federal government to keep peace. However, politicians and bureaucrats have been taking advantage of Kashmir's conflict-driven economy. In the trailer, Yami is shown fighting terrorism and corruption in Kashmir while donning a fierce avatar.  

A brilliant supporting cast  

A good film becomes great with the presence of an amazing supporting cast. This is also the case with Yami’s Article 370. Headlined by Yami, the movie also features Priyamani, Vaibhav Tatwawadi, Arun Govil, Skand Sanjeev Thakur, Raj Arjun, Raj Zutushi, Kiran Karmarkar, and Sumit Kaul, among others in pivotal roles. This huge ensemble cast is sure to bring depth and deliverance to the film’s storyline and pull crowds to the theatres.  

Captivating soundtracks  

The crew of Article 370 deserves applause not only for the terrific casting and intriguing cinematography, but also for its mellifluous music. For instance, the film’s title track Dua sung by Jubin Nautiyal and Shashwat Sachdev has already garnered over 15 million views on YouTube since its premiere. Moreover, the other songs such as, Ishq Tera, Main Hoon, among others are also soulful and beautifully shot.  

Evokes nationalistic sentiments  

Lastly, the trailer showed us the rise in local terrorism and the radicals' attempts to take over. Soon enough, Yami’s character joins the NIA and gets permission to go on a mission in Kashmir. No matter what it costs, the government is determined to remove Article 370. Well, Yami and the administration maintain their resolve in the face of political unrest. This political-action thriller is sure to instil feelings of national pride and patriotism among the viewers, while watching the drama unfold on celluloid.
