The reason Rock On is liked by so many..is because it is so real! Except for the high-drama filmi climax at the end,where Jo walks out of the cab to join the concert..everything is true to life.Exceptional emoting and restrained expressions by Farhan. Brilliant music. Perfect depiction of Sahana,of a bohemian girlfriend turning to bitter chocolate post taking on family responsibilities and jeopardising her own passion to support the family.She defintely is someone to watch-out for.
Farhan has a certain unconventional sexiness about which is very interesting. The ackwardness in his voice, the natural discomfort in the reactions(especially the parts where(1) Prachi gets his MAGIK friends to the surprise party and (2) The time he bumps in taniya, his ex.
Arjun Rampal does a more than decent job of the brilliant lead guitarist who cannot market himself, simply because he cannot..he cannot do anything apart from playing his music.
Prachi is mediocre,apart from a few sensitive scenes where she does a good job(the part where she announces her pregnancy to Farhaan)Purab is a natural, and the kid of the group..and plays his part with much elan.Luke is just about ok.
But this movie is definitely worth a watch...
Worth the Rs60 butter popcorn,..and worth the wait to get tickets..after 2 weeks on consecutive house-fulls! :)
