YRF’s New York is a good story unraveled unhurriedly. In fact the pace is so leisurely, you might think you’re watching it in real time. Filmed in the US, the movie is about a bunch of people whose lives change drastically after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Omar (Neil) is detained by the FBI when guns are found in his taxi. His pleas of innocence do nothing as Agent Roshan’s (Irrfan) is out to get him any which way. It is later revealed that it was the FBI that planted the guns in his taxi, and that they want him to co-operate by infiltrating his friend Sameer’s (John) house, who is a terrorist suspect. Incidentally, Sameer and his wife (Katrina) were his friends at NYSU and willingly let him stay at their place, where Omar starts spying on them, more to prove to the FBI that his friends are innocent than anything else, until reality bites him in the face.

New York starts off like a KJo movie with a lively soundtrack and a sense of Utopia. But after the good times stop rolling you are back to post 9/11 reality where people with Muslim names are detained and tortured in a Gitmo-like facility, people are bitter and disturbed, and Human Rights Authorities are questioning the State over illegal detainees.

New York sends the much-needed message that not all Muslims are terrorists, and that terrorist activites are never justified, but the timing seems a bit off. After almost 8 years people want to forget 9/11 and move on. While Kabir Khan has managed to pull off the idea, a la Bollywood, rather well, the world has moved on to more substance than kitsch where moviemaking is concerned.

All said and done, New York is not a bad film to watch.

    I would rate this movie as 4 out of 5. The storyline, cinematography and music was a treat however I still feel it could have been better specially the message they wanted to convey in the climax. Performance wise Neil was too good, John was good in the detention center and Katrina did a good job during the climax scene. I would suggest not to compare with Khuda ke Liye, it is definitely a good movie of 2009.

    A very thoughtfully crafted movie, well directed, and well presented. Cud have been better with someoner else doing Neil’s character. John and Katrina were perfect

    Nice thoughtful movie, but could have become more interesting if budget have been increased. Planting mobil bombs was like joke.. Could have made claimax more interesting and dramatic. Last shot was like performing on stage (roof top scene)

    Overall comment is …>>>> GOOD MOVIE after long time..Keep it up Sabir.

    Did’nt leave much of an impact.Plot is definately outdated & many scenes were lifted from other hit hindi films.

    Movie fell much below expectation
