Crook is about a young man who has the knack of getting into trouble and believes that it is good to be bad even when confronted with racism.
Jai (Emraan Hashmi) finds himself always on the wrong side of things and when his gangster father is liquidated by the police, Joseph (Gulshan Grover) packs him off to Australia with a new identity. He meets Suhani (Neha Sharma) there and gets along well until it is revealed that her brother Samarth (Arjan Bajwa) is afflicted with the phobia that Australians are keen to eliminate all Indians. The plot thickens when a couple of indian haters enter the scene. How Jai extricates himself forms the rest of the story.
Emraan Hashmi tries hard to deliver but is hampered by a weak script. Neha is just a glam prop. Shella is Ok. Arjan and Kevin make their presence felt. All others merely go through their motions.
A weak script is further hampered by slipshod screenplay that prevents a smooth flow of narration. The dialogues are banal. The presentation package is good but does not manage to get the attention of the audience. Music is average. Cinematography is very good. Production values are high.
Crook is an average fare in spite of producer Mukhesh Bhatt and director Mohit Suri.
