<a href=New York movie" align="right" hspace="5" vspace="5" />Yash Raj Films' 'New York' that sees director Kabir Khan tackling an unconventional and serious subject has brought much-needed respite to the box office by grossing Rs.350 million worldwide over the three-day weekend.

'New York', released worldwide Friday, is about three friends whose lives change post the 9/11 terror attacks on the twin towers. It stars John Abraham, Katrina Kaif, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Irrfan Khan in pivotal roles.


The movie that hit over 900 screens across the world had promising advance bookings and continued to register more demand from the audience after the first day of its release.


According to Tushar Dhingra, COO, BIG Cinemas, the film 'opened very soundly and is giving good results'.


'It has proved to be a strong box office ledge for multiplexes. After a long, long time, this movie has been able to pull the crowds to the cinema halls again,' Dhingra told IANS.


Apart from its success in India, 'New York' has also garnered positive response from movie buffs in the US, Britain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where it was released across around 60, 40 and 30 cinema halls respectively.


The movie has opened at the number three slot on the Australian charts and 10 in Britain at the weekend. It was the top earner in UAE for 2009, said a press release by Yash Raj Films.

IT's an okay movie I mean most of the people won't watch it again . it's just a one-time-watch movie

it's giving a big hit mostly cuz of the time of its release. since there was a strike going on this is the first reputed movie that released and that's y pple are watching it!

well it's still good to watch it once bt story is not different or unique from other such FBI related movies
