Stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra, who is often in news over some controversy, is now trending for his ‘honest review’ on Vivek Agnihotri’s film The Kashmir Files. The movie, which is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, became one of the biggest hits of the year. However, Kunal had some other views.
During one of his shows, KoiMoi reports, the comedian stated that nobody can have a take on The Kashmir Files. He started the segment by roasting the film and his audience, who, as luck had it, did not watch The Kashmir Files in theatres.
“Get out, this is against national interest. I am going to tell the Prime Minister like a vaccine certificate there should be a cinema certificate. If you have not watched Kashmir Files, you are not allowed to enter cinema,” Kunal told the people who had come to watch his show.
The comedian then spoke about his experience watching the film. Kunal went to watch The Kashmir Files in Pondicherry and again, by co-incidence, only four people saw the film along with him in the particular cinema hall. He recalled an old man giving a speech after the film ended.
Kunal’s honest review about The Kashmir Files was not reviewing the film. He told his audiences that he cannot lie and thus, they were to be blamed for asking him that question. “Tum to chale jaoge Monday naukri karne, thoda mere bare me bhi socha karo. Tumko pata hai me jhut to bol nhi sakta,” he was heard saying during his show.
The Kashmir Files stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Darshan Kumaar and Pallavi Joshi in the lead roles. The movie which released in theatres on March 11, is now available for streaming on Zee5.
The movie created history at the Box Office. Today, it is among the five top grossing films of 2022, even after half the year has passed. The Kashmir Files, in fact, is the only movie that has come at par with RRR and KGF: Chapter 2 in terms of Box Office collections. Even Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 (Rs. 181 crores net approx) was not able to surpass the records set by the film (Rs. 246 crores net approx.).
