New York!! New York!!

There are many reasons i do not go for a Hindi and i admit that some of them are just very flimsy, but they are my reasons and damm, right they are right in their own way.

Watched New York over the weekend, here is what i thought about it yes it is a little old and this is old but wtf it is my review

The Theatre : Cinemax – Wondermall Thane

No parking, alternative park on the road. No. Got it finally but not issues, no regrets as well.

The Movie Hall – Screen 1

Pretty ok, no issues, there was a crowd, but it seemed ok. Got seats quite soon. So no complaints there as well.

The Movie

Started pretty well, i did not know the plot at all, did not see any reviews, hell i did not even know who all were acting in the movie etc etc.

Neil started off pretty well as a nice little homely nerd, going to an American college, New York State University. The speed looked ok till when i saw the watch and nothing seemed happening, Hai Junoon was playing about every 2 minutes and it started getting depressing as to the reason of making the movie.

Neil then drags thru the movie, a 10 second dialogue take 5 minutes, just like Gabriel Garcia Chapter, long long long, c’mon if you want me to watch a Hindi movie, this was not the movie to start again.

Funny part hereWhen FBI boss talks in English, there are sub titles, when John Abraham talks in English in a small part, there are subtitles, however when Neil and Katrina speak in English there are no subtitles. Found it little weird.

Then suddenly it was interval time. And we were still about 30 minutes in real time. Forget it was already 1.5 hrs in movie time.

Time for popcorn and a big line, and exorbitant prices. Who pays 40 bucks for a water bottle, Are they giving Evian Water? Samosas for 35 bucks, for 2 …like 17 friggin bucks for a samosa, fk.!!!!!!

Anyways post the interval the movie started in the climax scenes, it could have got over in another 45 minutes but the movie lasted another hour. Dialogues slowing down.

In the last scene, Neil takes about 5 minutes to tell the officer where the bomb is to be, ok if you are in a crises situation you would tell that first and now take precious time, but the movie has to last right.

Last scene, John does again a slow, mourning talk. Shit happens, snipers start shooting. The snipers are behind John but bullets hit him in the chest.

Katrina, is standing next to Neil and the officer, but not one of them moves a bit even though in the firing line, talk about confidence.

No information on how John is molded into a terrorist. Katrina says she already knows john is a terrorist, but how.

The kid looks more American than both of them, wonder why i must guess.

Overall the movie is watchable if you don’t bother much into the details and take it at pop corn value. Watch it, Shut it , forget it.

Watchable for one time only

    Hahaha! Yeah, even I was bored to death. There are many slow motion scenes in the movie. Too many in fact. Plus the way John and team enter FBI “HEADQUARTERS” is hilarious! It felt as if they are entering some Mumbai Dongripada chawl or terrace of a building here in Mumbai. They talk of Post 9/11 and its become extremely strict there. So the walk inside of the FBI building is something that wasnt a properly planned scene. The thing that took the cake was the campus of the University. And I thought New York State University doesnt have a campus at all, to begin with.

      Even at the start of the movie when the swat enters the building, looked so amatuerish, am sure the scene could have executed more realistically.

      Yeah good u pointed that out. i did remember that part. Also when the explosives are smuggled was really funny and absolutely not believable. 🙂

      Well its a bollywood movie, believe the unbelievable
