Indian Express


A fresh entrant helps No Fathers In Kashmir to ask questions in order to make the film relevant to audiences unfamiliar with the conflict.

Film Companion


A Decent Kashmir Premise Undone By Its Desire To Be Heard...No Fathers In Kashmir is scripted smartly but the execution is a bit muddled, almost as if the director decides to compromise his awareness in favour of on-the-nose activist filmmaking

Reviewer Profile
Deccan Chronicle


Kumar tells his story through a coming-of-age story between two teens — Noor (Zara Webb) and Majid (Shivam Raina) — in an atmosphere of all-pervading gloom where even any semblance of hope becomes everyone’s supreme aim.

This film is not a light watch – it’s a poignant tale that leaves you thinking about the half-widows and half-orphans, and many such untold stories.

Namrata Joshi
The Hindu


In trying to bring in humaneness and politics in equal measure on screen, Ashvin Kumar’s film stops short of being a searing account of a tragedy

    'No Fathers in Kashmir' is an unabashedly political film which creates tense surroundings and fills it with further, turbulent scriptwriting. These things do make it a very bold film. But the style of direction and tge cinematography of Kashmir are regressive and the performances by Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Shivam Raina are far from convincing, making it a contrived little feature where there is little to convince us.
