THIS action movie revolves around a slum dweller named Siddu, who dreams of participating in a deadly sports contest in a far-off land. After showing off his ability to do daredevil stunts, he travels abroad without a valid visa to compete against contestants from around the world.

It soon emerges that he wants to find out what happened to his brother, who had entered the same contest and died. Along the way, Siddhu falls for a social media influencer and must contend with a female police officer trying to stop him.

That less than believable plot is fuelled by stunts from start to finish. While it may seem like an interesting premise for a commercial Hindi film, Crakk is a colossal mess. Whether it is a ridiculous storyline, terrible acting, average music, or messy editing, absolutely nothing works in this unintentionally funny film.

It is a wonder that no one associated with this poor excuse for a movie realised just how bad it was while making it and after seeing the final, finished product.

Vidyut Jammwal once again proves that a chiselled physique and the ability to do some eye-catching stunts aren’t enough to sustain interest in a film. Arjun Rampal continues his descent into truly terrible cinema with another turkey. The less said about non-actresses Nora Fatehi and Amy Jackson, the better.

This ultimately turns into a self-indulgent exercise where the lead stars seem more concerned with looking good than delivering convincing performances, or being part of a story that makes sense. With the budget reportedly being high, it is apparent that very little of that money was spent on any kind of cohesive writing.

It will take a lot to prevent this from being the worst commercial Bollywood film that is made this year. It really is that bad and should be avoided if a streaming site or TV channel is silly enough to acquire it.
