The movie Rock On!! can be well defined as the journey of Aditya (Farhan), Joe Mascarenhas (Arjun Rampal) , Rob (Luke Kenny) and K.D. (Purab Kohli) who want to see their band ‘MAGIK’ and it’s music at the peak, but ending in vein. This is when, after a few years destiny brings them together to see those dreams again, and fulfill them this time.
The Movie is not just about music. It’s about relationships and how a relationship can get messy and complicated. Rock On!! shows these ups and downs in relationships very beautifully, sensitively and effectively. The only flaw in the movie is its slow pace. But this flaw doesn’t affect much as through out the movie we can relate ourselves to the movie characters, their moods, their egos and their ups and downs.
If Dil Chahta Hai was remembered for Farhan Akhtar’s directorial skills, this one too is headed a long way for his acting
The person who deserves much credit is the cinematographer of the film, Jason West. The handheld camera movements make you feel as if you were present right through the performance. The lighting is just another treat. The practice sessions, the well light cobweb filled alleys, the emphasis on the instruments are simply brilliant.
The music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy was a rage much prior to the realease. The film just enhances it even more and don’t be surprised if you are keep humming tracks like ‘Tum Ho Toh’ once you are done with this flick. Great Job by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy! Kudos Javed Saab!
In a nutshell, ROCK ON!! is an amazing movie that no one just can't afford to miss. This is a film that India can proudly showcase to the West. On the whole, Rock On!! is one movie that will make you smile…effortlessly. So, GO ROCK…!
