Rock On!

Rock On!

So you’d thought the guy with the classic Midas touch who had faltered with ‘DON’ would not make a comeback? So you’d thought the director with a genius lyricist’s blood running in his veins , can’t sing or act? Wrong and well, wrong again.

Starting from the slick trailors being shown on television to the promos put in theatres, ‘ROCK ON!!’ had kindled my curiousity enough to make me want to actually walk into a theatre and want to watch this movie.

The previous bollywood fest I had seen was ‘Jaane tu ya jaane na’ which was, well , let’s not get there! 😀

So I got to hear the songs of the movie much before I actually saw it. There was an instant liking to ‘Pichle saat dinon’ , soon enough I was addicted to this one and sang along everytime it was played.Oh, I forgot to mention Farhan’s singing skills. He sounds like Lucky Ali meeting rock music. Which is totally rad!The other song to which i had a instant attraction was ‘Rock ON!’ and ‘Sindbad the sailor’. Although sometimes it feels like the lyrics of ‘Pichle saat dinon mein’ doesnt make much sense, ‘Sindbad’ is full of inspiring lyrics and quite hummable too. It has been a while since I felt good after watching a hindi movie. Rock On brought that crazy grin on my face after a long long time!

Purab donnes the clown cap in the movie , and yes Arjun Rampal can also act! Shocking but true 😛

The angle of ‘the rift between 2 members of a thick gang of friends re-uniting’ might make one reminiscent of Dil Chahta Hai. But everyone has done a great job in acting in this movie. Heck , even Farhan has. This has proved that he is quite a versatile guy.

Of the recent bunch of movies I have seen, ‘Rock on’ clearly stands out.

PS: This is post #150! 😀
