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)

Goofs

When Sam is playing chess at the University with the Asian guy, the board is shown from the top; there is one chess cube free between the two kings. In the next scene the kings are shown next to each other. That is not possible because both of them would be in check. Plus, Sam is making checkmate by taking the white king with the black king. That is against the rules of chess. See more »

Wow
20 August 2009 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

this was a very sad but great movie i don't know it could be more on the actuality side of things. I mean i don't want the FBI or HLS breaking down my front door of my house. but who really knows. anyway great story the producers were amazing at presenting this. had great acting. samir was a great choice for his roll i think that he should have been a older guy maybe a professor that would have made a better story like a sleeper cell with a professor recruiting foreign students to plot and terrorize. the FBI agents were just stupid i mean who really would act like that. I think there should have been some more technology in this. I understand the budget was probably low and stuff but come on if a terrorist cell were actually working im sure they would be using some type of GPS or like a RFID or something to keep a track on everyone. any way good movie
