    Rock On transported me to a different world. A world of youth, a world which is driven by what you want to do rather than what you have to do... a world which is ruled by the heart.... and above all a world in which you are free..... a free to do what you want to without the trappings of the mundane.

    All of us have a passion.... a dream... which we would have followed or have been lucky/ prudent enough to follow in our present phase of life.... the arts....sports.....and many of us have actually let this go, in the pursuit of making a living or ... » read more

    One of the better movies of 2008. It has a good storyline well told. Though some may argue that the pace of the movie is slow, it does not hamper the flow in any way. All the actors have played their part very well. Accolades have to be showered on Farhan Akhtar because being a director till now, he has acted very well. Even the songs sung by him are great and suit his voice.

    The direction is great and there is not one dull moment in the movie. For all music lovers this is a must watch. » read more

    This movie rocks!!!

    Rock On rating: 10 out of 10

    By Suchita Mukherjee(01 Feb 2010)

    I absolutely loved this movie. What a great concept and amazing performances by Farhaan, Arjun, Luke and Purab. A heartwarming story about four friends who share a common passion for music had once formed a successful music band 'Magik'. However, some differences cropped up and the band broke up. Each of the four musicians then took up other jobs and moved on with their lives. However, a chance encounter brings them back together and they decide to give one last performance together especially to fulfill the desire of their dying band member. This reunion is very successful ... » read more

    Some of the music critics had been particularly harsh on the soundtrack of “Rock On”. To the untrained ear, it didn’t seem bad at all on celluloid. Though the tunes may not become memorable, the music carries the plot and the rawness of Farhan Akhtar’s vocals somehow matches the rawness of his band as it strives to break into the big times.

    But it’s not Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy’s efforts alone that turn “Rock On” into an honest, good film. The concept of the movie and its execution, and the realistic characters and their quietly powerful performances make significant ... » read more

    Any guy should watch this movie. I've seen this umpteen no. of times and still don't get bored. Since I grew up in a hostel and feel quite close to my school friends, this film constantly reminds me of those days. Farhan Akhtar has bettered Dil Chahta Hai with this effort of his. All the roles are perfectly executed and Magik really has created some magic on the screen. » read more

    If you watch movies and haven't watched Rock On yet in a theatre, go watch it NOW! or at least plan when you can watch it at the next chance that you get! If you are a connoisseur of Hollywood and consider Bollywood to be mostly , please go watch this! Hats off to Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, the producers and the visionaries! Hats off to Abhishek Kapoor, the man behind the camera and the captain of the ship and finally hats off to Farhan Akhtar, the multi-tasking actor and musician! The USP of the movie is the direction and the script. The present interspersed with ... » read more

    I just watched rock on yesterday. A feel good film, a film to think nd ponder about after watchin the movie. the best thing about the movie is natural acting of the actors and actresses. specially lot of hindi cinema actresses use so typical voice and acting now-a-days, it sounds ridiculous sometimes. This was an welcome break in hat regards, though story line is somewhat melodramatic, but inspiration was from real life bengali band (mohiner ghoraguli), and there album (abar bochhor 20 pore- means again 20 years later).

    Rock on was a likeable film. I think the casting was fantastic. Each character was distinct. There were very few cinematographic liberties taken. Yes one could complain that the story was predictable, after all someone had to die in the end, in the best interest of emotion. But the film did capture the generic story of why bands break up well. The treatment of relationship was balanced, you clearly did could not take sides between Joe and Aditya. The music to me could have reached greater heights, though the realism of it did strike you. Prachi Desai needs to work on her ... » read more

    The reason Rock On is liked by so 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 ... » read more

    By Rajarshi Majumdar(14 Sep 2008)

    The 'Magik' of Dil Chahta Hai and Jhankar Beats tuned into one! Now because I have seen these two movies 'n' number of times, this wasnt a new thing for me. But watch this for some memorable performances from Purab (one of the most under rated actors of recent times), Farhan (whatever he touches, it turns gold) and Shahana. » read more
