Delhi University's Professor Avantika Ahuja meets fellow professor Ehsan Khan in typical Bollywood filmy style, and both fall in love with each other. Her father, who had preferred that she marry a Hindu, reluctantly permits them to get married. They do so, and subsequently re-locate to live in the United States. They buy a house, settle in, and are welcomed by their neighbors, Hamid and Anjum. A few days later Avantika's world will be turned upside down when she finds out that their neighbors are terrorists who want to avenge the deaths of innocent Iraqi and Afghani civilians massacred by British and American forces, and that her husband is not who he claims to be.

Karan Johar was originally supposed to direct this film with Shahrukh Khan, Kajol and Sanjay Dutt in the main leads. The film was then titled Kaal. But Karan dropped this project to work on Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham (2001).Aditya Chopra knew about the script and decided to make "New York" years later.He did this thinking Karan was not going to make the film. Years later Rensil D'Souza decided to brush off Karan Johar's old script Kaal and make it as "Kurbaan". It was when New York in production that Karan realized Aditya Chopra had taken the story without getting his permission or consulting him. Kurbaan had already started and it was too late to stop the film. This created friction in the friendship of Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra. See more »
I like people with opinions. It's the ones who don't have them that scare me.

I was inclined to give this one just 1 star, but then bumped it to a 3 because of the technical elements of the movie (it looks good) and the music (which while not stupendous, is at least pleasant sounding) The movie itself is a complete waste of one's time, and for anyone with reasonable sensibilities - will leave them fuming at the end of it all. The seeming absence of reason and logic by the characters in the movie and the downright shocking stereotyping of characters, let the movie down completely. Before watching the movie - i'd read reviews on the internet from reputed publications that commend the tight script and great direction, but all of that just looks like an effective PR machinery and a flexible marketing budget at play.
If you do want to have a pleasant evening, and one that doesn't involve an onset of irritability and general bodily discomfort - then please avoid watching this one.
