Its not always good to be bad. Definitely not good to be bad when its a film that tackles such an important and sensitive issue as racism. What is worse though, is that Crook- its good to be bad, is not just bad, it is terrible.

Another one of those issue based films from the Vishesh films stable, Crook, starring Emraan Hashmi starts on a not so great note. But as the film progresses it looses track and digresses into a revenge drama cum love saga, much to the consternation of the audience.

The films bird brained plot is about Emraan Hashmi, an illegal migrant to Australia, who falls in love with an RJ, played by debutant Neha Sharma. Her brother Arjan Bajwa, is the character that gets the racial abuse, and whom, supposedly, the film sympathizes with.

The film skims over the touchy subject of racial discrimination in Australia. Compared to earlier films from the same producers, Crook fails miserably since the director Mohit Suri is unable to decide whether to take sides, make a point, or just make a film about sleaze money and violence that could have been based anywhere in the world. The film doesnt evoke any sympathy for anyone, neither the Australians nor Indians, and ends up making a mockery of such an important issue.

Performances, are uniformly inconsistent and excruciatingly pathetic. Emraan, Neha, Arjan, sleep walk through the length of the flick, so does the director, it would seem. Music is surprisingly sad for a Emraan-Mukesh Bhatt film. A definite no no even if you dont have anything better to do than kill flies on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
