New York takes the advice about not judging a book by its cover and puts it into a modern day context. In the days leading up to September 11, 2001, Omar (played by Neil Nitin Mukesh), a New York City taxi cab driver, is taken into custody by the FBI. He soon learns that his Indian heritage and Muslim background play a bigger part in his arrest than anything he might be guilty of. The investigators assigned to the case coerce Omar into spying on his former college friend Sam (played by John Abraham), a suspected terrorist, who has married Maya (played by Katrina Kaif), a mutual friend from college. The three face varying levels of suspicion after 9/11 and must deal with trying to clear their own names while simultaneously being used as pawns by the FBI to spy on fellow immigrants suspected of being terrorists. Directed by Kabir Khan and released by Yash Raj Films, this 2009 film is a psychological thriller that displays some of the racial profiling and discrimination that is a reality in post 9/11 America.moreless

    Los Angeles Times

    Kabir Khan's New York -- part Bollywood potboiler, part overwrought examination of the war on terror -- is a slice of the Big Apple that you should skip.
