An excellent film.
13 February 2007 | by minokshi85See all my reviews

I think that Kabul Express is the best Bollywood film of 2006. I still feel the effects of this film a week after watching it. The performances by the actors were great. Especially the actor who was playing the Taliban. The movie does a great job of educating the audience in regards to life in Afghanistan, and that not all Taliban soldiers are inhuman monsters. The scenes of the Afghan country are wonderfully shown. There are a lot of emotional scenes, especially during the end when we are not sure about the fate of the Taliban soldier as he try's to get to the border. The movie is realistic and it does not contain any song and dance sequences. The main reason why it is a great film is that it will make certain people realize how fortunate they are to grow up in a country without war. As well, that they should try to find ways to help people in other countries who are less fortunate. Finally the film does a great job of portraying the spirit of the Afghan people. The Afghan people have the spirit to survive turmoil in their country, and they will survive to bring their country back on its feet and make their country great again. This film is definitely one of a kind.
