Trivia

Karan Johar was originally suppose 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). The title "Kaal" was eventually given to another film with a different storyline. 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". Karan Johar stepped in as the producer . It was when New York in production that Karan realized Aditya Chopra had taken the story of Kaal 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 »

A Treat to Watch
27 June 2009 | by vetradySee all my reviews

The first major release of a movie after Delhi 6, watching New York was a treat. I was very much afraid that the acting deficiencies of John and Katrina would make the movie unbearable.. but quite the contrary was in exhibition.. Under the guidance of an excellent Kabir Khan.. The leading pair along with Irrfan have done an outstanding Job. The temptations would have been many.. There could have been very bad graphics of the Twin Towers to start off with. But Kabir Khan stayed away from it. If anything could have been improved it would have been the finale involving Katrina and John.. But the ending was again great... The best thing which worked for me in the movie though was Katrina. The scene where she confronts Omar and also her expression when she watches her client fall down from the building is out of this world...
