    Rockstar rating: 8 out of 10(Bhavana Mahajan wrote on 24 Nov 2011)

    I regret. I wish.

    Isn’t it strange that regrets are immediately followed by wishes?

    I judge. I miss.

    Isn’t it strange that often when we are busy ‘judging’ something, the true essence of that very thing ends up slipping away from our consciousness?

    I watch. I believe.

    Truly, is seeing the only test of believing?

    Isn’t it strange that one of the most meticulously detailed transformations depicted in Bollywood ever, comes from the duo – Imitiaz Ali and Ranbir Kapoor – known for flamboyance and ‘hunky-doriness’?

    Life as they say is strange. Its myriad colours, many goof-ups and quirky eccentricities all rolled into one. But mostly, its surprises like ‘Rockstar’ – a movie I would have probably not gone for had it not been for the whim of a younger sister – that make one step back, reflect and move on. That and some good music. More on the music later.

    That Ranbir has established himself as an actor beyond the star, that Imtiaz has proved that he can go into the deep dark realms of unhappy endings and societal prejudices, these are mere repetitions of what has already been said by many about this movie. What appealed to me was the subtle transformation affected in the lead character with each incident leaving him distinctly changed and finally unrecognizable to his own goals and aspirations!

    And the music – Rehman has outdone himself! Starting off with the youth-anthemish saada haq to the haunting Tum ho to the ethereal ‘Kun Faya’, it just grows and grows to consume you entirely till you are compelled to rush into the music store to get your fix (the DVD!). Why oh why was this energy, verve and passion missing when he was supposed to compose for the Commonwealth games??

    What was a bit overdone was the whole ‘over-chirpy girl wanting to go mad’ deal – right from Socha Na Tha to Jab we Met to Rockstar – no, all girls wanting to go mad don’t fall in love with their male best friend/confidante/partner-in-crime!;D Maybe it is time for a female centered Bollycom now, eh Imtiaz?

    Just a thought! :D
