Total Articles: 60
Kabul Express, New York, Ek Tha Tiger, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Phantom. Five movies, all having some geo-political angle attached to them. Kabir Khan, the director of all the above mentioned blockbuster movies is perhaps one of the few film makers who is genuinely not interest in making another masala movie. Since his directorial debut with Kabul Express in 2006, he has made a conscious decision to stay away from typical masala Bollywood movies. In fact, if one notices, all his movies have some India-Pakistan or terrorism element attached to it.
Born to a Pathan father, Rasheeduddin Khan who was one of the founding professors of Jawaharlal Nehru University, Kabir Khan started his career as a cinematographer for Discovery channel documentary, “Beyond the Himalayas”. He then made his own documentary film, The Forgotten Army in 1999. This was based on Subhash Chandra Bose's Indian National Army. It took him two more documentaries, before making his first Bollywood film, Kabul Express, starring John Abrahm and Arshad Warsi. No wonder, that film was also like a documentary. The film was about two Indian journalist who went to cover the Afgan war in Afganistan. It was not so well received at the Box Office, but got a lot of praise from critics.
His next outing was New York. This film was about three students studying at the fictional New York State University whose lives are changed by the 9/11 attacks and its aftermath. The film strike the right chord with the people and went on to become a blockbuster hit at the Box Office. Kabir Khan took three year, to deliver his next film, Ek Tha Tiger in 2012. Salman and Katrina Kaif who were already a rage at that time, made the movie all the more successful. This film was also the non conventional type. It narrates the love story of a RAW agent and with his Pakistani counterpart.
It was last year, that Kabir Khan ruled the Box Office with his two back to back hits, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Phantom. Both the movies, took Indian cinema to the next level. If Bajrangi Bhaijaan was about the story of an Indian man, an ardent fan of hanuman who embarks on taking a mute six-year old Pakistani girl separated in India from her parents back to her hometown in Pakistan, Phantom is about a RAW agent who is on his mission to bring to justice all the accused of 26/11 attacks on India, in his own way.
