About the Movie
Kabul Express is an interesting journey of the journalists, their close brushes with death, their emotions, fear and adventure. The movie is an engaging thriller. The movie does have a slightly anti-Pak flavor and it also goes into America bashing. The movie can be appreciated for bringing truth to the limelight so the common man can see the reality in its own way. The movie also has few humorous moments which makes the movie quite interesting. Salman Shahid's performance as a former Talibani is matchless. Kabul Express was the first movie to be shot entirely in Kabul so the hard core realities in the movie are really live. In short the movie is an exception to typical masala movie and a diary of experiences of the people really facing challenges.
