Storyline

When Sub-Inspector Joseph Pinto finds that his foster son, Jai Dixit, sired by a deceased, re-formed gangster, has taken to crime, he arranges for his re-location to Melbourne, and has his name changed to Suraj Bhardwaj. Jai does re-locate there, and gets hired as a taxi-driver. He gets attracted to Suhani, much to the of her brother, Samarth, who wants her to marry Gurdaspur-based Romi Latti, who is also in Melbourne on a university scholarship. With mounting racially-motivated attacks and profiling ('Curry Boy', 'Indian Curry') against Indian students, Samarth actively protests - but Jai refrains from doing so - even after Romi is badly beaten by Caucasian youth. The protest results in violence, and Samarth is arrested. On the day of his discharge, Jai is told by a stripper, Nicole, that plans are afoot to kill Samarth, and he decides to intervene. He does succeed and even accompanies Suhani to the Police Station to identify her brother's attackers. It is here that the police will ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Visual and acoustic pleasure
24 July 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie. Wow, what an experience! This is certainly not a movie Indian public will like, with Masala factor being around zero; but I am fine with that since I do not like Bollywood movies that look like Hollywood parodies from the 1980ies!

This movie has got it all: solid screenplay, wonderful cast, marvelous locations and beautiful soundtrack. Even though direction could have been better, ''Crook'' is good, and never disappoints. Emraan Hashmi's (interpreting Jai Dixit) acting is convincing, albeit too casual at times. The newcomer Bihari Neha Sharma (here in the role of Suhani) is more than beautiful and has proved that she is here to stay. Katrina Kaif watch out! Arjan Bajwa (of Guru and Fashion) is the main villain here (Samarth). He is getting better and better with each movie, although I don't think he's convincing enough (while) interpreting antagonists.

The movie is based on true events, but with a dose of fiction. I'd say that it's 75% true.

9.5/10 Highly recommended!
