Srinagar: “Kaafiron Ki Namaaz”, a widely acclaimed Kashmir-set independent thriller, will be released online on April 7.
Hindi, English and Kashmiri film, written and directed by Ram Ramesh Sharma, and produced by Bhargav Saikia under his independent film company Lorien Motion Pictures, the movie will be release exclusively on the banners of official YouTube channel.
Shot in the picturesque locales of Kashmir, “Kaafiron Ki Namaaz” is a movie well-known in film circuits.
It has been screened to critical acclaim and applause at various film festivals, including Jeonju International Film Festival in South Korea, Ladakh International Film Festival (where it won four awards), and Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival in Indonesia, Kolkata International Film Festival, and International Film Festival of Colombo in Sri Lanka.
But like many independent filmmakers, Saikia was facing roadblocks in releasing this debut project, which he and Sharma dropped out of film school in 2011 to make. The film was completed in June 2013. (PTK)
