KABUL EXPRESS

Last week I saw Kabul Express, man it was awesome. Hats off to Kabir Bedi, the director of the movie for taking such a contemporary theme and for bringing an international flavour to the Hindi cinema.The movie's tagline goes like this - the journey of 2 Indians, an American, an Afghan and a Taliban in a jeep in Afganisthan.
The movie has made a deep impact in me by its fine picturisation of Afganishan, the deserts, the lives lost because of the war, innocent children, the trauma caused by the war troops, sentiments, destruction et. al. The movie didnt deviate like any other bollywood movie into masala or item number. The subtle humour and Arshad Warsi's comic sense of dialogue delivery rocked all the way and kept the movie going on and on...
The movie gained momentum with the entry of the American lady journalist. John Abraham- Arshad Warsi duo gave some realistic and fabulous performances. Many scenes were surely touching, the one where John sees a handicapped child while doing his push-up's and the one where the Taliban militant meets his daughter in the later half showed the deep feelings inside...
There was no lack of humour and it went along with the movie without disturbing the flow of the screenplay. In fact, the movie intrigued me to come back, google and wiki about the Taliban and Afghanistan.
It sure was enlightening and seeing Kabul Express was an exhilarating experience here at the Six Degrees Movie hall in the Sathyam Cinemas.
