Critic Reviews for New York

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

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.

July 1, 2009 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

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.

July 1, 2009 | Rating: 5/5

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.

A captivating, gripping and thoroughly provocative thriller.

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. Quoting later:
