Kabul Express sets out with a very clear message in mind and manages to get it across with finesse. The screenplay is excellent, the acting is believable, the locations are mesmerizing and the comedy is intelligent. The movie tells of the turbulence in Kabul from the perspective of two outsiders and how they learn about life as is lived in war-ravaged Kabul.
The movie moves quickly and does not drag at all. The absence of song and dance sequences trims it down to a very entertaining two hours. There can be absolutely no complaints as far as the acting is concerned. All the actors have done a convincing job. Arshad Warsi’s comic timing is masterful and he manages to make the movie his own. John Abraham has very little to do in the entire movie but he does all right.
Kabul Express is definitely not your run-of-the-mill ‘post-war-crisis’ movie. The creators have done extremely well and sand dunes have never looked better. This one is a must watch. Four big stars out of five!
