Storyline

After being apprehended, detained, humiliated, and denied legal counsel by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Omar Ehzaz, originally from Delhi's Lajpatnagar, relates to the investigator, Roshan, assigned to his case, how he arrived in New York during 1999; his friendship with Samir Shaikh and Student Counselor, Maya; the events of September 11, 2001; the subsequent paranoia, fear, racial profiling, generated and aggravated by the tyrannical right-winged regime of George W. Bush, and how he came to be in possession of several Ak47s and plastic explosives that were confiscated from his taxi-cab. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

In January, 2009 one of the film's crew members invited John Abraham, Katrina Kaif, Kabir Khan and other crew members to his birthday party at a local nightclub in New York. While the crew members, who arrived in one car, were allowed into the nightclub, the actors, who had arrived in another car, were denied access by security who did not recognize them and who demanded identification. Neither they nor some crew members (who came from inside to help out) were able to convince security that they were important stars in India. By the time Abraham, Kaif, Khan, and Mukesh had returned with identification, the party had ended. See more »

Good story but average movie
10 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The thing, which really failed the movie according to me, was the 9\11 attack. How many Hollywood movie we saw with the subject a lot, and the fact is that everyone has already gone through the terrorist attack of 9\11 and wanted to see something new something they haven't see in other movies. The second thing, which was really bad, was the actors; Katrina Kaif (Maya) had such a powerful role in the movie still she didn't pull it off that beautifully. Sam (John Abraham) sorry everyone but his acting was probably the worst of his career, because somewhere in the second half of the movie he seemed lost everyone was focused on Omar's mission. Omar (Neil Nitin Mukesh) Omar was the most fascinating character in the movie he was going to betrays his friend and still Neil manages to be the one who is used in the movie he was the only actor who played really sincerely. The tracks were really soulful and touching specially ''Hai Junoon'' which was a superb track. Kabir Khan the one who directed ''Kabul Express'' did not really impressed me in fact I was disappointed by him. His last movie was such success ''critically'' acclaim. There is no doubt New York will be a Hit because of the cast, still this movie fails in term of a good suspense. 5.5/10
