New York Movie Review

After the paucity of good movies due to the dispute between the producers and the multiplex owners, New York comes as a whiff of fresh and rejuvenating air. An extremely gripping and thrilling film, it has picked up the emotive theme of the post 9/11 scenario in the US and turned it into an amazing film.

Kabir Khan had given us a taste of his directorial abilities in Kabul Express, but in New York he has surpassed himself. A story scripted by Aditya Chopra, the narrative takes us through the lives of three friends studying in a college in New York, to their present day relationships and their lives after 9/11.

The story revolves around the suspicion and trauma that most Muslims went through post 9/11. The atmosphere of fear and prejudices which seemed to have engulfed the nation are portrayed without going overboard and without losing the tautness and tenacity of the storyline.

Katrina Kaif has finally been given a role where she is a necessary part of the plot, and she has given a riveting performance as the girlfriend and the troubled wife. Neil Nitin Mukesh has come out of unsuccessful films and has played his complex role with an amazing grace and panache. John Abraham however steals the show, and you realise what a great actor he really is.

But the winner in the entire film is the storyline. The subject matter is very grim and dismal, since it deals with prejudices and suspicions and underlying emotions, but at no point do you lose interest in the film, nor do you feel overpowered by the gravity of the situation.

We thoroughly recommend this film to all our readers, because you will leave the theatre touched by the story, and by the superlative performances from all the actors, and by the emergence of a vibrant young director.
