Goofs

When Sam is playing chess at the University with the Asian guy, the board is shown from the top; there is one chess cube free between the two kings. In the next scene the kings are shown next to each other. That is not possible because both of them would be in check. Plus, Sam is making checkmate by taking the white king with the black king. That is against the rules of chess. 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...
