Kabul Express

Director: Kabir Ali

Cast: John Abraham, Arshad Warsi

A journalist ( John) and his photographer go to find an interview with the deposed taliban.Tthe taliban is hunted, and the remaining few are trying to escape to pakistan, which closes tis borders. Along with a local afghan guide these two go after taliban prisoners to speak to them. An american journalist goes after them in search of a story too.A taliban warrior kidnaps all of them and takes tehm towards pakistan.

Through the journey they realize that the motivations of differnt men are differnt and msot of the people are pawns in a larger game.Some really stunning images through afganistan, good banter between the lead actors, decent background score and good acting from the afgans ensures the pace is held.
Except for a little shallowness in the characters it could have been a great movie.

Good one time watch.

Rating: 7/10
