Director Shujaat Saudagar’s Bollywood movie Rock On 2 starring Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Shashank Arora and Prachi Desai, has got positive reviews from audience.
Rock On 2 is a musical drama film and it is a sequel to the 2008 film Rock On! Abhishek Kapoor and Pubali Chaudhuri have written the story for the movie, which is all about relationships. Director Shujaat Saudagar has tried to present how relationships can get complicated in very a beautiful and sensitive way.
Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Shashank Arora, and Prachi Desai have delivered brilliant performances. The amazing chemistry among them is the biggest highlight of Rock On 2. Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, who have bankrolled the film, have made sure that the flick has superb production values. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s music is the attraction on the technical front.
Once again, he’s a tough nut to crack and his musician friends try to bring him back to the world of living. The dialogues that underline their camaraderie fill you with a nostalgic feeling. But their reunion lacks the same warmth. The twists seem forced and the introduction of the two new bandmates seem unnecessary.
Kapoor plays the troubled, aspiring singer Jiah Sharma, who is repressed by a conservative father, who just happens to be a classical music maestro. Her internal struggles, somehow, leave you unmoved. It’s not for her lack of trying, but it could be because she is trying too hard.
As far as performances go, every one does their bit but they are let down by a confused storyline. Watch this only if you are a Rock On groupie, otherwise skip it.
