Its not an afghani film !!!!
20 August 2002 | by yenjvoySee all my reviews

This is not an afghani film!!!! Its a bollywood potboiler, starring all Indians - not one Afghani actor. Only a few scenes were shot in Afghanistan, during the rule of the Communist Dr Najibullah, when Kabul was a civilised city, not the rubble pile it has become today. Its a fun film, all fantasy and popcorn entertainment. It says nothing about afghans, however - its based on an old Indian conception of the Afghans and their attachment to honor and their word. Reality is of course very different.
