Crook: It’s Good To Be Bad - Music Review
Not listening to Pritam’s tunes for a long time does become a bit boring. The peppy songs just go missing from the charts. With Crook: It's Good To Be Bad he is back once again with his old team, the Bhatts, and when these two meet, we all know the result is going to be outstanding. Do we need to check the record book?

Crook’s director Mohit Suri too has a good record of hit musicals; we guess it comes natural to the director whose films have always boasted of some major romantic hits soaked in lilting melodies. Crook’s potpourri consists of eight songs. And what have they for us, the listeners? Let’s check out:

The album starts with the Punjabi song, Challa. Pritam created Aahun Aahun for Love Aaj Kal from a folk Punjabi song and the track was a big hit. Challa too on the same lines is essentially folksy in its feel and with a smattering of hip-hop. The mention of taxi and dollars in the song is in the context of Indian students who study abroad (Australia, in this case). The movie is based on racial attacks on Indians in Australia. Challa Remix by Tigerstyle is no different from the original.

Mere Bina is just like Pritam’s other love hits. The music of the song, crooned by Nikhil D’Souza, easily strikes a chord with music lovers. In the next offering, Neeraj Shridhar gets to entertain us with the track Kya. It’s a light romantic track which youngsters are going to enjoy.

With his passionate voice KK is back with Tujhi Mein. Though the song is easy on the ears, it sounds a lot similar to Mere Bina. The audience may get confused between the two songs. Nowadays, without Mohit Chauhan an album seems to be incomplete, and quite expectedly the man with an unusual balmy voice makes Tujhko Jo Paya a must for your playlist.

Tujhi Mein (Reprise) is also an engaging track in keeping with the cheery mood of the album. KK elevates the mood with Mere Bina (Unplugged), and we notice that the man is at ease while hitting the higher notes of the octave. A perfect rendering, and how can we forget that he is the one who so passionately sang Tadap Tadap for the film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.

When Pritam is at the helm of affairs we can be sure there is not going to be a dull moment in the album. His last film Khatta Meetha’s songs are still playing on the charts though the movie is a flop. Unexpectedly, the songs of ‘Crook’ are fair to middling.

What comes as a disappointment is that none of the songs has that musical fervor the composer is known for. After listening to the first few songs, the album gets repetitive. The music, which is not bad as per Bollywood standard, fails to click. So, one can’t stop wondering what went wrong with Pritam this time?
