The Kashmir Files Plot

The story is based on Krishna Pandit (Played by Darshan Kumar). Krishna, who hailed from Kashmir, has shifted to Delhi for his higher studies at JNU. He believes that his parents died in a car accident. However, according to Pushkar (Anupam Kher), his grandpa, the reality is even more terrible. It is a horrific story of the genocide. 

Krishna is caught in the centre of two conflicting accounts of the burning year 1990 and the hidden real story of Kashmiri Pandits. One is of Pallavi Joshi (Radhika Menon), a JNU professor, who gained much support for the anti-national slogans. The other is his grandfather, Nath, who is fighting for the rights of all the immigrants from Kashmir.

Later in the present of the movie, Krishna visits Kashmir again after Pushkar Nath passes away to fulfil his last wishes. While there, he also runs across four of Nath's friends: a journalist (Atul Srivastava), a doctor (Prakash Belawadi), a DGP (Puneet Issar), and a government official Brahma Dutt (Mithun Chakraborty). They are stunned to see that Krishna wasn't aware of the exact circumstances that led to his father's passing and his family's torture. 

The Kashmir Files movie then explores Krishna's quest to learn the truth and the mystery behind his parent's death. The story ends with Krishna giving a real speech in JNU about the 1990 genocide.
