Rock On (2008) was Directed by Abhishek Kapoor and now the Sequel Rock On 2 Directed by Shujaat Saudagar is a complete disappointment in the terms of entertainment. Movie is same as old based on Rock Musical Drama but this time the soul is not there, neither the music is good. Story is the culprit; it is not holding the audience to movie. Till the interval I was searching for pickup in the story line but it was lagging from the beginning till the interval. Exactly I want to say it was too boring till the interval. But it doesn’t mean that after interval it picked up, it was still in the same lag. In the last 30 minutes of the movie it looks like yes now something interesting will happen and was waiting for that. But the climax also was not much happening but at least better than the ninety percent of the movie.
No complaints regarding the actors, everybody did well as per the characters and the story demanded. The movie failed with the story, direction and music. The Rock On (2008) has set a certain level of expectation and standard, so this one should be above that. I believe even Farhan Akhtar also may be realizing after watching this movie that it is not up to the mark. Other than the previous cast Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Prachi Desai the new add-ons are Shraddha Kapoor, and Shashank Arora. Kumud Mishra is there in the role of a famous traditional musician and father of Shraddha Kapoor and must say not used him as per his capability.
When we think about Rock On, it is all about the music. Now this sequel is with such music which is completely pathetic and with soul less story. In the climax they played the old Rock On title song for some minutes which at least brought some smile on the face.
Well, it is a disappointment from Farhan Akhtar.
