Director: Hussein Khan
By Yogesh Mishra
Kashmir Daily –Story of a Journalist is based on the drugs abuses and the increasing problems of unemployment in Kashmir valley. Mir Sarwar, the lead actor of the film and it’s director Hussein Khan themselves belong to Kashmir. Prior to this, Mir Sarwar has also worked in several bollywood films like Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Jolly LLB 2, Phantom and few more…
The story is about an honest and fearless journalist Hussein (Mir Sarwar) who runs an English daily in Kashmir named ‘Kashmir Daily’. This media house is not financially sound and having a small staff size but the fearless journalism of the editor Hussein and team took this newspaper in limelight and Hussein becomes the popular name in Kashmiri media fraternity. The life of Hussein drastically changed when he exposes the drugs mafia and few more powerful officers who were playing with the emotions of the educated youngsters in the name of employment. The fearless journalism of Hussein finally exposes the people behind this dirty business but he has to lose his life to achieve his mission.
Apart from lead actor Mir Sarwar, director Hussein Khan himself has played a role of Mir’s elder brother in the film. The entire climax of the film is dominated by Hussein only. The other artists like Neelam Singh, Sanam Ziya, Rajinder Tickoo and Zameer Ashai also justified their roles.
Although Kashmir is a burning issue in current scenario but director Hussein Khan has beautifully managed the things without harming the emotions and interests of the locals of Kashmir.
This beautiful script is badly harmed by the technical glitches. Ignoring the technical glitches of the film, this is a beautiful movie with a meaningful message. There was a scope of making it much better. The film guides the youngsters of Kashmir who are frustrated by the unemployment and other burning issue prevailing there. It’s a good attempt by the film maker Hussein Khan.
