In a compelling preview of the upcoming political drama “Article 370,” actress Yami Gautam assumes the role of an intelligence officer, vowing to combat terrorism in the troubled region of Kashmir. The teaser, released on Saturday, provides a glimpse into the intense narrative surrounding the revocation of special status to Jammu & Kashmir.
Scheduled for a theatrical release on February 23, the film, backed by Jio Studios & B62 Studios, promises a powerful portrayal inspired by true events that have shaped the destiny of Kashmir. Directed by Aditya Suhas Jambhale, “Article 370” delves into the challenges and consequences surrounding the removal of the special status accorded to the region.
In the teaser, Yami Gautam takes on a fierce persona, asserting that terrorism in Kashmir is not merely a result of people demanding freedom but rather a business perpetuated by corrupt politicians. She contends that tackling the perpetrators is contingent on the withdrawal of the special status granted to Jammu & Kashmir.
The teaser reaches a climax with a scene of Yami pointing a gun at someone, her face bloodied, symbolizing the intensity and high-stakes nature of the political drama. The voiceover announces the abrogation of Article 370, signifying the removal of special status and the transformation of the state into Union Territories.
Known for her versatile roles in films like “Badlapur,” “Uri: The Surgical Strike,” “Bala,” “A Thursday,” and “Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga,” Yami Gautam portrays the role of an intelligence agent in “Article 370.” The movie revolves around the mission to dismantle terrorism in Kashmir by rendering Article 370 ineffective.
The film’s premise aligns with historical events, as on August 5, 2019, the Central government revoked Article 370, stripping the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir of its special status and dividing it into the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
“Article 370” is produced by Jyoti Deshpande, Aditya Dhar, and Lokesh Dhar. Notably, Aditya Dhar, who directed Yami Gautam in the 2019 action blockbuster “Uri: The Surgical Strike,” is also her husband. The couple tied the knot in 2021.
As anticipation builds for the release of “Article 370,” audiences can expect a gripping narrative that reflects the complexities and challenges surrounding the political landscape of Kashmir.
