Express is a film which has been influenced by the past ventures such as
Wednesday and Rang De Basanti. Directed by Ashok Kholi the film has a strong
character centric storyline which will compel the viewers to sit back and
associate with the real life instances where the common man has to bear the
brunt of the indifferent nature of the system.
Stars Jimmy Shergil and Leander Peas have been pitted across each other. Incidentally this is Leander’s debut film and he could not have made a better choice for his launch. Here he essays the role of a common man who has been pitted against the corrupt and indifferent system which has no qualms in cheating the common masses for their own greed and sinister needs. Although both the protagonist and antagonists have not met each other in person, yet the film is able to highlight how they are both involved in a serious situation which can be life threatening and have disastrous consequences.
The movie compels the viewers to take notice of how a common man becomes a victim to the bureaucracy.
The supporting star cast is a delightful mix of some known and unknown names including Priyanshu Chatterjee, Bollywood bad man Gulshan Grover, SayaliBhagat, Mukesh Rishi, Puja Bose, SudhanshuPandey, Kiran Kumar and Shilpa Shukla.
