New York (Hindi)
New York is a contemporary story of friendship set against the larger than life backdrop of a city often described as the centre of the world. Omar (Neil Nitin Mukesh) has gone abroad for the first time in his life and soon enough he begins to see and love America through the eyes of his American friends â€“ Sam (John Abraham) and Maya (Katrina Kaif).
It is the story of these three friends discovering a new world together. But one day the world around them changed... For most of us, larger events in the world are just headlines in the newspapers but these events can change our lives... forever. New York is one such story of 3 young friends whose beautiful lives are turned upside down by larger events beyond their control. At this point enters Agent Roshan (Irrfan), an FBI undercover agent who sets the ball rolling for a series of tumultuous events that turn the lives of these friends into a dangerous and thrilling roller coaster ride.
Roshan travels from USA to India with his ailing grandmother. Little does he know that this quick trip will turn into the longest journey of his lifeâ€¦ a journey within! The story is told against the backdrop of the ancient walled city of Delhi who is a character in herself. A city that represents the chaos of Indian people, their religion and their beliefs. The pin code of this old city is 110006. With pride and love they call it Delhi-6.
Dev D (Hindi)
Dev D is a modern-day love story. Dev, Paro and Chanda of Dev D reflect the sensibilities, conflicts, aggression, independence, free thought, exuberance and recklessness of the youth of today. A generation that is jammed between eastern roots and western sensibilities.
Dev D is set in the rustic and colourful Punjab and also explores the dingy, morbid, dark underbelly of Delhi. It takes us from sprawling mustard fields to a riot of neon; from Punjabi ballads to mayhem in rock.
