There is no doubt that Milan Luthria's gangster flick, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI, is all set for a smooth ride at the ticket window and one of the factors that has played a very important role in ensuring a good opening week is its chartbusting music by Pritam. Music's lucky mascot Emraan Hashmi has done it once again as the number, Pee Loon, which was already a rage before the film released, has met with a thunderous response by the audience. And it now appears that the title of music's lucky mascot is all set to be proven right once again with Emraan's next, CROOK.
Produced by Vishesh Films and directed by good friend Mohit Suri, who gave Emraan hits like JANNAT and RAAZ-THE MYSTERY CONTNUES, CROOK as most know is about the present racial discrimination faced by Indians in Australia. And the good news is that CROOK too has some excellent music, as has been the norm in most Bhatt -Hashmi films, as they pay special attention to it. Reliable people from the industry who have been fortunate enough to have heard snatches of two songs Challa India and Dil Ye Mera claim that they are sure shot chartbusters.
Well, all we can do is wait for the album to release and hear for ourselves Emraan's next probable chartbusters!
