Mukesh Bhatt, brother of director Mahesh Bhatt and producer of some of the bollywood movies like 'Murder', 'Gangster', 'Zeher', 'Footpath', 'Raaz', 'Criminal', 'Aashiqui' etc has come up with his latest movie, 'Crook'. Even in the middle of the romantic environment created in hindi by teams like Yash Chopra, Karan Johar etc; Bhatt's movies stands notable as most of them are romantic action thrillers. Since 'Crook' is directed by Mohit Suri ('Zeher', 'Kalyug', 'Woh Lamhe', 'Awarapan' and 'Raaz 2' fame) with the lover guy Imran Hashmi in the lead role, the interest will be more. Neha Sharma, who got introduced through the telugu movie 'Chirutha' by Ram Charan Teja (Chiranjeevi's son), has done the heroine role in 'Crook'.

The hero (Imran Hashmi), who was involved with some illegal activities like movie piracy business, reached Australia with a different name and identity as per request from his uncle, who is a police officer (Gulshan Grover). There he met a radio jockey (Neha Sharma) and soon their relationship developed into an affair. Her brother (Arjan Bajwa) doesn't like this. At this time, some of the issues of racism started there and as a result some attacks are happening on the Indians. The hero is not interfering in such activities and he is behaving as a spectator when such an incident is happening. What happens to all such characters are shown in the later portions.

Though the director had tried to show the critical issue of racism happened in Australia recently, he had failed badly on the presentation side. I can't believe that such a creativity comes from Mohit Suri who gave some notable movies in the past. The romance between the hero and heroine, the hero's positive approach towards the foreign girl, the attitude of the heroine's brother, the flash back portions and the cause of heroine's sister's death, the scene involving the racism, the rally and the protest talk on the controversial issue, the sequences of the bachelors house where hero stays, the 'goldie' character, the scene s involving the police officers, the climax etc are some of the areas that are done in an unprofessional and unrealistic way. The only good scene is the opening one in which the hero takes a pirated video of a movie in his mobile inside a theater. The songs are happening at unwanted situations. Imran Hashmi and Neha Sharma were also not impressive. Arjan Bajwa is over acting, it is a question whether his role is a villain or a positive one.

'Crook' is an example of a worst movie which happened in bollywood in the recent past. The promotional posters of the movie says 'It is good to be bad'; it gives us an impression that the creators were ready to accept the outcome, well in advance...

Rating : 2 / 10
