WE have talked umpteen time how a bad script has ruined good stories. Someone who would see New York would understand this.
The movie starts with Omar (Neil NItin Mukesh) getting caught by the FBI under allegations of possessing illegal arms. Irrfan Khan playing a FBI cop gives him a way out. He needs to infiltrate into John Abraham's terrorist cell and then supply information to Irrfan as they are suspecting a major attack on New York. KAtrina plays John's wife, she is as being written on every post and paper has given one of her vest performances.
Well the movie then moves into the formative years of each of the character, how they became friends. The movie doesnt take a stand against terrorism, but tries to tell how bad decision by both individuals and country as a whole affects everyone.
The movie is novel and told with honesty. But where it lacks is the ability to hold you. Its not a new story nor does it try to talk of something which is untold, but being a topical subject it was definitely going to get some eyeballs. I was definitely expecting a lot from the movie, specially with Kabir Khan being the director.
Well not everything goes right for the movie.
However, Neil NItin Mukesh does justice to his complex character and Irrfan plays his usual best. John and Katrina are also good. But the movie loses to a bad script.
A docu drama is where the Indian Film Industry has been lacking, barring Company by RGV we have not seen a really powerful docu drama...
So here wishing for more honest efforts and efforts that result into good Movies
