I just got back watching Kabul Express. Wasn't expecting much from the movie since the TOI had rated it with only two and a half stars. But I liked the movie. A story completely different from the normal romantic movies that the Yash Raj banner usually boasts of. The bad guy played by Hanif Hum Gum is so good that John and Arshad pale in comparision. I don't even want to start on the American journalist played by Linda Arsenio. She is so irritating when she is whining about the Afghani Kebabs. The ending was heart wrenching. I even cried at the end (but I do that with every other movie!). My final opinion of the movie, worth watching atleast once.
I have a friend who went for a holiday to Kabul earlier this year and seeing this movie makes me think of what he'd risked when he decieded to go there. And the amount of courage he had to take that decision. I'm so proud of him :)
