Rock the Kasbah - Movie Synopsis & Plot

A has-been rock manager from Van Nuys, California stumbles upon a once-in-a-lifetime voice in a remote Afghan cave in Rock the Kasbah, a dramatic comedy inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson. Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan’s version of “American Idol.” Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the “Afghan Star.”

MOVIE REVIEW

Bill Murray refused to star in a new Ghostbusters, but he did agree to star as a washed-up music manager who ends up stranded in Afghanistan, agrees to help some shady American contractors transport weapons to a small village, finds an extremely attractive singer in a cave and then risks her life to put her in the spotlight in the rocky comedy Rock the Kasbah.
