Crook: The Story of the Indian Students who all were criticized and were even killed in Australia due to the color difference or racism.
Movie Rating: 3/5
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Neha Sharma, Arjan Bajwa
Director: Mohit Suri
Emraan Hashmi plays the lead character, an Indian cabbie-man taking the rough ride in Melbourne.
The streets of Melbourne are full of war and bloodshed between Indian and Australian gangs. Emraan’s character is similar to what he plays in Jannat, another film by the same director. In Crook, Emraan is a headstrong guy who doesn’t care much about morals.
He goes to Australia to make money, by any possible means. There, he falls in love with a student activist played by Neha Sharma. While Neha is trying to sort out the difference between Indian and Austrlian communities, Emran feels like a different person too.
Will he finally turn into an activist and overcome his ‘crook’ status? Crook movie reviews rate it high simply because of its extreme topicality. Emraan does what he does best. He plays the guy he’s always been comfortable with.
His crazy act in Murder and reincarnation of Dawood like Don in his recent hit Once Upon A Time in Mumbai instills confidence in fans that Enraan will do it again, once again!
The interesting part about Crook is that Mohit takes both sides of the coin and rpesents it well. He showcases the Australian side of it, as they protect the native culture from potential damage by Indians and others.
At the same time, Indian students seek leadership in Arjan Bajwa as he fights for his culture abroad. Crook movie reviews come out clean of any controversies so far, maybe just waiting for the release before the action can follow!.
