#Shikarareview :- Disappointed ⭐— RajaRahul (@Rajarahulsingh) February 7, 2020
Lack of everything, it is made only to whitewash the incident about #KashmiriPandits It is all shown that people were good, all the faults belonged to govt.
So Disappointed. Don't ruin such topics just for making Happy one community.
Whereas, a few Twitter users came in support of the film. They hailed the cinematography and camera work of the film. The director and the star cast also bagged praises.
#ShikaraReview :- A heartwarming tale of heartbreaking migration of Kashmiri Couple. Vidhu Vinod Chopra scores accuracy in execution and detailing. Adil and Sadia deliver Outstanding performance on debut. Top class cinematography. Overall a Decent film but special for some.— $@M (@SAMTHEBESTEST_) February 6, 2020
कश्मीरी पंडितों पर हुये अत्याचार को करीब से और एक साधारण सी प्रेम कहानी को बेहद खूबसूरती से दिखाती है 'शिकारा'। #shikara #AadilKhan #Sadia की एक्टिंग कमाल की है। एक बार जरूर देखनी चाहिये।#shikara #Shikarareview @VVCFilms @arrahman @foxstarhindi— Deepali Srivastava (@deepalis21) February 7, 2020
Amidst the mixed response, Twitterati also raised the questions for changing the tagline from The Untold Story of Kashmir Pandits to A Timeless Love Story in the Worst of Times. The changes made by the makers before the release have triggered backlash. They expressed their disagreement on the same too.
And Religion Appeasment Continues .. VVC doesnt have guts neither he ever wanted to potray the real story of Kashmiri Pandits and hence changing the #Shikara movie title from 'The Untold Story of Kashmiri Pandits' to 'A Timeless Love Story'. pic.twitter.com/HVNDNWkN6r— Amit Wali (@amit_wali) February 7, 2020
