Pune Goes Gaga Over CROOK Emraan Hashmi !!!

Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt’s Vishesh Films, a banner known vividly for its out of ordinary films and chartbuster music, is back with a bang after successful ventures with films like Jannat & Raaz The Mystery Continues.

Their films always had an issue to address but in a typical Bollywood Style. This time it is the issue of Racial Discrimination with the Indians abroad and especially highlighting the recent attacks on Indians in Australia. The film Crook stars Emraan Hashmi and known for giving way to the newcomers in the industry, this time too, Vishesh Films is giving break to a new girl Neha Sharma in this film. The film also casts ‘Fashion’ Boy Arjan Bajwa. Directed by Mohit Suri, the film has all the elements to make it a masses’ film- Romance, Comedy, Action, Thrill and of course an issue, which sums it all. The Music of Crook is on Sony Music and has been scored by Music maestro Pritam, whose association with the ‘Bhatts’ has been very fruitful lately with hit albums like Jannat and Tum Mile.

Pune went crazy when the cast of Vishesh Films’ Crook: It's Good To Be Bad paid them a visit at SGS Mall today i.e. on 25th Sep, 2010.

Well if we say that it was a good turnout of the crowd then it would be an understatement. More than 15000 people turned up to get a glimpse of actor Emraan Hashmi who's name they kept screaming. Emraan was overwhelmed with the response of the crowd.

On public demand the actor danced on Challa India the popular song of the movie. Everyone was surprised because this is the first time Emraan danced publicly and that is too with fans.

Mahesh Bhatt

“CROOK- ‘It’s good to be bad’ both entertains and enlightens the viewer. It takes an unflinching look at the burning issue of racism which has devastated the life of thousands of young Indians, who go to Australia in search of a better life putting not only all their money but even their lives at stake. The film also locks horns with our own inner demons.”

Mukesh Bhatt

“Seldom in life do you have the good fortune to hold your head high with pride after watching the first cut of one’s own movie. Crook is one such film from our production house which makes one proud. The film manages to do what most films aspire to do but seldom succeed. Mohit Suri has shown the complex truth of Racism in Australia in a very entertaining way.”

Mohit Suri

“Ever since pre-independence, Indians have always felt racially discriminated by the so-called “superior white race”, wherever they lived in the world, even in our own country. However, this has never affected the illegal immigration of our youth into foreign countries. UAE, United Kingdom, USA, Canada and now Australia are just some of the aspirational destinations for our youth, who are unable to face poverty and unemployment in their own country and are lured by the promise of a comfortable lifestyle in these developed countries.

As the news flashed ‘over 20 incidents of curry bashing have taken place in Sydney and Melbourne in the past 30 days’, I found myself standing outside a 24-hour convenient store in the Sunshine District of Melbourne city in search of a story. Inside the very same store one of the most brutal racist attacks had taken place just a few months back. The events as told to me were horrifying, about how an Indian was brutally beaten up only because of his color and religion. Outraged and humiliated I felt the need to voice this as a filmmaker. However, as I left the store my eyes fell upon an advertisement on the store window, which said “accommodation available for Indian students - for Gujrati boys only”.
That advertisement ignited the germ of “Crook”. It made me realize that racism and all other social evils are a part of every human heart, irrespective of his class, creed, color or sex. Good and bad, god and evil lie within us. It’s our choice to decide is it good to be bad in today’s world or does it pay to be good?”

Emraan Hashmi

“Strong characters may carry a weak plot, but weak characters cannot be hidden by strong plot. My character in Crook is one of the best characters we have created in recent times. I am sure my character in Crook will reach into the collective heart and pluck the heartstrings of people of every generation.”

Neha Sharma

“I am very happy to make my debut with CROOK. I extend my deepest gratitude to Mukesh Ji and Mahesh Ji, who believed in me and gave me this wonderful opportunity. I liked playing Suhani, my character in the film, as she is very close to the real Neha. It was sheer pleasure working with Mohit as he is a wonderful story teller and ofcourse Emraan Hashmi, who has been such a great co-star.

Arjan Bajwa

“Crook is a very bold attempt on showing the plight and the situation of victims and catalyst in racist situations, well crafted and knitted by the ace director Mohit Suri. I feel honored to have worked with Bhatt Sahab and Mukesh Ji. What I play in the film is a very hot headed aggressive Indian guy living abroad with multiple personalities. It will be quiet a shocker and surprisingly different from what people saw me in Fashion.”

Yeah Kya Khichdi Pakee?

Members of Gokuldham society in Neela Telefilm’s sitcom Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma, had a very pleasant surprise, when stars from the forthcoming film ‘Khichdi-the movie’ suddenly reached their society to judge a dance competition. Anang Desai, Supriya Pathak, Girish Sahdev along with the director Aatish Kapadia entered the society quietly and watched the dance and music competition where everybody from Gokuldhma was taking part.

Later they went and met all the members like Daya, Jethalal, Champaklal, Tapu, Madhavi, Tarak Mehta, Babita, Iyyer, Aatmaram, Popatlal, Dr Hathi & family.

In fact director Aatish Kapadia, who is making his entry into cinema with this film, is a very good friend of Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s producer Asit Kumarr Modi. Hence Modi made this friendly gesture to give this platform to the film. “Aatish Kapadia is a dear friend but at the same time the film Khichdi has clean comedy like Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Entire family can watch both without embarrasement. We were very happy to receive them on our set and judge our competiion,” says Modi

Produced by Asit Kumarr Modi under the banner of Neela Telefilms, the sitcom is inspired from a very popular column ‘Duniya ne Oondha Chashmah’ in a Gujarati daily.

So keep watching “Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah” from Monday to Thursday at 8:30pm to 9:00pm and Repeat telecast at 11:00pm Only On SAB TV.
The brief of the story:

Taarak Mehta our "Sutradhar" (the narrator) is a humorist and one of the residents of the building, giving us a peek into the homes & the hearts of the people living here. The drama predominantly revolves around Jethalal’s family. Daya, Jethalal’s wife is funny but a smart housewife who always gets her things done according to her mind blowing Ahmedabadi ideas. They live with their naughty son, Tapu and Jethalal’s father, Champaklal. The other society members are a tuition teacher cum society secretary Aatmaram Tukaram Bhide who lives with his wife Madhavi and daughter Sonu. A South Indian Iyyer living with his beautiful wife Babita. Dr. Hathi is actually what his name suggests & he lives with his wife and son. Sodhi, being a Punjabi has married a Parsi lady and both husband and wife have nothing in common except their name ‘Roshan’ & live with their son. There is a journalist (Patrakaar) Popatlal who still lives in the aura of newspapers and we also have a journalist of modern technology, Rita Reporter. Then Natu kaka is hard of hearing and works at Jetha’s shop. The story is about the incidents in their lives and how all this affects other inhabitants of the building. In a tongue in cheek style, our humorist narrates the farcical and hilarious aspects of the drama that is an integral part of the daily drudgery called LIFE. It is a vibrant comedy with subtle humor sometimes bordering on the very funny human complexities. In a way it highlights the comic reality underlying our daily life.

Anjaana Anjaani Synopsis and Music Review

Anjaana Anjaani Synopsis: A story about two strangers one stranger than the other. Two people can meet ANYWHERE. In a cab on a rainy New York afternoon, at the neighborhood bar, in a queue waiting to use the ATM Machine, On a plane, deep sea diving, in the middle of an earth quake, sitting on that famous bench at the Taj Mahal or standing under the Pyramids in Egypt. You can meet someone in the most mundane of circumstances or in the most exotic ones. Akash and Kiara meet. But they meet in a situation as unusual as no other.

This is the story of two strangers on an odyssey of discovery down a path that is ridden with the exquisite pain and joy of falling in love, only they don't realize it

Anjaana Anjaani user comments: 'hope this movie be a zabardast hit on box office'

'Ranbir is looking so awesome blossom i hope dis movie is gonna be a block buster and its songs are just too rocking'

'exiting.... waiting 4 d movie.....'

Meet the Anjaana Anjaani pair In a film where the main leads suffer from a ‘chemical locha’ and are running away from treatment to live one last dream, strangers coming together to make their meeting special in a whirlwind romance, Ranbir and Priyanka infuse the film with such an infectious vivaciousness that you believe its time to re-jig the dating game once again.

Music Review: Anjaana Anjaani: If Anjaana Anjaani (borrowed from Yuva’s Ae Khuda Hafiz track) had not started with a controversy (plagiarising poster of An Education, shame-shame) then I would have begun this music review without prejudice.

Anjaana Anjaani is releasing on 24 September but talks are going on to postpone its release because the verdict for Ram Janam Bhoomi is to be announced on that day!
