Critic Reviews for New York

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

Although the film is a routine thriller with few surprises, it deserves attention because its topic, even eight years after Sept. 11, is one that many South Asian Americans still take very seriously.

Kabir Khan's New York -- part Bollywood potboiler, part overwrought examination of the war on terror -- is a slice of the Big Apple that you should skip.

A predictable, brow-furrowing drama (sadly songless except for a couple of Sunday-in-the-park montage sequences) about the effects of 9/11 (and 9/11 paranoia) on some South Asian immigrants living in New York.

It's a remarkable history, rich in comedy and occasionally heartbreaking, filled with wise reflections and strange digressions about the wonders of life.

Kabir Khan uses thriller conventions to address such issues as the suspension of civil liberties and the [US] government's ever-expanding power to harass, detain and deny due process to detainees.

Audience Reviews for New York

Great Lord! Third Mukesh Generation. Neil Nitin Mukesh didnt inherit the voice of his father and grandfather Mukesh but HE IS SO HANDSOME!

Regarding the Movie, one should see it themselves, it such a emotion roller coaster ride. Besides sometimes it is really catchy to write reviews on Movies related to 9/11.

Wow Irfan Khan as a FBI agent was great in the Movie.

After the controversial "Kabul Express", a film about post-Taliban Afghanistan Kabir Khan returns with an even more controversial film "New York". A film that centers around 3 friends and how the events of 9/11 changed their lives. But its more than that, it shows view points from all sides. The best dialogue in the movie is spectacularly delivered by Irfaan Khan. You'll know what I'm talking about when you see it. When I saw the trailer I was very intrigued. The film not only lives up to the expectations but surpasses it. Kabir Khan has crafted a movie which will satisfy not only the everyday Bollywood film lover but lovers of great cinema. After "Ghajini" and "Luck by Chance" this is the best Bollywood film I've seen this year. It might have taken John Abraham 20 films but he finally gives an excellent performance especially in the second half. Irfaan Khan is flawless as usual, the guy does not give a bad performance. Katrina Kaif is not just another supporting actress anymore, she shows range and is very believable in her role. New comer Neil Nitin Mukesh delivers and holds his own through out the film. I couldn't help but compare this film to "Slumdog Millionaire" in its narrative. The beginning starts of with interrogation and the film flashes back. Irfaan Khan is again the Oh I'm sorry "the CIA". Also "Sam's theme" is very similar to "Latika's theme" from Slumdog". I don't know maybe its just me. I not only recommend this but is a must watch for everyone. A very satisfying film on all levels.
