Unfortunately, Afghanistan is exactly where it was, if not worse. The real-life epilogue of this film seems more optimistic, and hence its timeliness. Contemporary world history is phased between pre and post-9/11. America’s own recent past is beginning t

New York is the kind of cinema that takes Bollywood forward. Also it is one of those rare films where the picture is so much better than a fairly misleading promo.

I must confess I'm not overtly familiar with America's controversial Patriot Act, so I wonder if I'm going to get into trouble for declaring that I feel the need to trash New York.

Myth: New York is about 9/11.
Taran Adarsh, SIFY
We`re all fascinated with terrorists – what makes them bomb up innocent people; do they have a backstory that prods them onto a destructive path; do they feel remorse and so on.

A couple of days back, as I was surfing through music channels, I came across a song being played simultaneously on three networks.

After weeks of no show at multiplexes, we have all been waiting for a ‘good’ movie and quite frankly we haven’t yet had a decent release the whole of 2009. Watching the promos of New York, I had this feeling that this John – Neil – Katrina starrer could b

If I had to give you three reasons to watch New York, they would include the following: Firstly because it is a tale of friends who deal with modern day racism in perhaps its worst form. Secondly, because the performances are absorbing. And lastly because

'New York', the first big Bollywood film to hit America after the industry strike, has won good reviews from US media with the New York Times praising its portrayal of problems faced by a Muslim minority.

Although many have said that New York has come a few years too late, it in fact has released at the perfect time
Movie Talkies Team, MSN India
Kabir Khan can take a bow because he has done exceedingly well in making a film that is not frivolous has a message and still carries enough commercial ingredients to reach out to masses as well as classes.
Joginder Tuteja, Now Running
As a whole, the movie is worth watch and 'paisa wasool' at a time when one wants to keep oneself completely cool in this unusually soaring temperature with no relief in sight following the adverse weather prediction for few more days to come

However it does not come close to leaving an impact, and turns out to be a mere time pass.

In the short time after 9/11, having brown skin immediately brought with it the stigma of suspicion and fear. This suspicion and fear not only came from some private citizens, but also from the people in authority. There were stories of Sikhs being beaten

The 9/11 episode has inspired many filmmakers. This is Kabir Khan's version. It's about three friends, Sameer (John), Maya (Katrina) and Omar (Neil) living in America.
