New York is a contemporary story of friendship set against the larger than life backdrop of a city often described as the centre of the world. Omar has gone abroad for the first time in his life and soon enough he begins to see and love America through the eyes of his American friends - Sam and Maya. It is the story of these three friends discovering a new world together.
John Abraham, hirsute and brawny one year after his appearance in Dostana as a waxed twink, plays a man driven to become a terrorist by his mistaken detention after 9/11. Made one year before “My Name is Khan” also a post 9/11 film, this one pales in comparison. Abraham may have muscles but he can’t act although Katrina Kaif isn’t bad as his wife and newcomer Neil Nitin Mukesh does a credible job as his friend reluctantly recruited by the FBI. Details that no one in India would notice bothered me: Philadelphia plays New York here but nobody bothered to change the license plates and the Italian Market just doesn’t look like anywhere in Brooklyn. No Bollywood dance scenes here…
