Synopsis

If you are a TV programming manager and you are looking for the best Indian movies, which have had a big international box office success, this is one of the best movies produced in India in the recent years.

Suhel (John Abraham) and Jai (Arshad Warsi) – TV journalists from India in search of the ultimate news scoop, meeting the Taliban.

Imran Khan Afridi (Salman Shahid) – a soldier of the hated and derided Taliban who needs to escape the wrath of the Afghans and run to his country, Pakistan. Khyber (Hanif Hum Ghum) – an Afghan who is as old as the war in his country. Jessica Beckham (Linda Arsenio) – an American photojournalist ready to risk her life to photograph the Taliban. Five people from different worlds, their paths are destined to cross in a ruthless country devastated by war – Afghanistan.

This is a thrilling story spanning 48 hours of five individuals linked by hate and fear, but brought together by fate to finally recognize each other.

Set in post 9/11 war-torn Afghanistan, Kabul Express is a kidnap drama that is alternately funny and horrifying. Narrated in a light hearted manner, this is the story of a unique reluctant bond that develops between people who are otherwise hostile towards each other but are compelled to understand one another in the time that they are forced to share together.
