  2. Hello,

    I agree totally with Raja Sen and Masand. There are many issues with the movie–a weak script, poor performances, slow tempo etc etc etc

    It felt like a half-baked story told by a half-asleep granny!

    I have a bad headache…just back after watching it na :((

    This is a must watch…Rajeev Masand has got it all wrong. Plot is superb, direction excellent and performances convincing. So far New York is the best film of the year. Kudos to Kabir Khan and his team. Specially appeciable is the message that it sends out to people.
