The movie has been accused of being a propaganda piece by many, a claim bolstered by the fact that many ruling party politicians have been supporting it and urging people to watch it. But it has succeeded mostly on word-of-mouth. The Kashmir Files has exceeded all expectations by a huge margin.

Previously, Agnihotri has made two movies on politically-charged themes: The Tashkent Files and Buddha in a Traffic Jam.
