In a valley of astonishing beauty, a small family lives in an idyllic house: a father, a mother and a son. They are a picture of happiness and love. But appearances are often deceptive. This pastoral landscape is the strife-torn valley of Kashmir, and the son, Altaaf, is an orphan of war who has been adopted by a policeman, Inayat Khan, and his wife, Neelima. Altaaf is slowly recovering from the psychic wounds of seeing his parents and his young sister shot to death before his eyes by a masked man. Years later, a rebel force infiltrates the valley on a secret mission. They need an highly trained fighter with burning anger and find that in Altaaf. He returns to the streets and by lanes of his childhood fighting for Hilal Kohistani, but also obsessed with his own private mission: he must kill the masked intruder who haunts his nightmares -- Inayat Khan.

Security is always tight in Kashmir, due to the very real threat of terrorist violence. (Which is, after all, what this film is about.) But when lead actor Hrithik Roshan arrived on location to start shooting Mission Kashmir, his first film had not yet released to theatres, so no one recognized his face. Arriving for the first day's shoot dressed as a Kashmiri militant, which he portrays in the film, security thought Hrithik really WAS Kashmiri - because of his fair skin and light colouring - and refused to allow him on set! Shortly thereafter, on 14 Jan 2000 Hrithik's début film Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai turned him superstar overnight, 'Hrithikmania' swept India ... and his face was instantly recognized everywhere. See more »

A great movie to begin with... It has great performances of Sanjay Dutt, Hrithik Roshan and Jackie Shroff... Great Sound Engineering... U can hear that in the title opening sequence with the sound of bullets... Great visuals as u have in all VVC (Vidhu Vinod Chopra) films... VVC has always been aware of bringing hollywood kinda film making to india... We remember him bringing the waves of Dolby Stereo in Inida with "1942 A Love Story"... This time he has sound mixed the entire movie with almost mammoth times cost which would not be possible in Inida... The pace of the movie is another asset... U cannot imagine a single shot to be removed from the movie... Every frame is tightly conceived to fit the script... Add to that, a smooth and pace syncronised editing... To sum up... The end sequence, the fight between Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt... Especially the technique... of Normal and Slow motion shots syncronised with sound... This end sequence would have been less than seen without that great artwork (Old and almost ruined wooden house with lifelike cobwebs and not to forget the swamps)... Not to forget great camerawork throughout the movie... That makes this movie very different in treatment... Surely one of the best movies made on Kashmir after "Roja"
