Rock On ... ROCK OFF!!!

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one! So guys here is mine!

Rock On was NOT rocking for me at all. What is a rock-n-roll movie without good catchy music? Farhan DIDN'T look as luscious as NANGU Kapoor.. He was too stiff for my taste. All in all, this movie reminded me of a very poor adaptation of two movies combined, Dil Chahta Hai and Jhankaar Beats! Farhaan should stick to direction and leave the acting and singing for those that can't direct, aka Abhishek Kapoor (who ironically can't act either!)

As far as the rest of the cast, I agree with Ma'm De. Purab Kohli's adaptation of "I will survive," was worth it all. Luke was good as well... Bani (oh I mean Prachi) was giving me DIABETES! We all know what happens when Diabetes hits, right folks? YOU LOOSE YOUR TOES! Arjun was as uncomfortable looking as ever, no emotions, nothing, nada, zilch! I don't see what SRK et. al. see in him. Perhaps, the Diabetes (from his sweet/innocent looking character) has effected my eye-sight too!

Basically, movie was too long, actors that needed to act, couldn't and the ones who had tiny roles did the MAGIK, atleast for the box office (from what I read.)

Which reminds me... Any thoughts on Mumbai Meri Jaan, anyone?

I second you in your thoughts about the movie. Bani was a moll. Gujju purab and 'true rockstar'Luke were fantastic. I liked the movie overall. But its not a classic.

Mumbai meri jaan... There was too much of 'reality' byte in the movie. Though the whole world is going ga ga about the movie, I personally feel that the movie could have been much much better. The acting is no doubt very good. The movie wants to speak about a lot of things and it loses its way in bargain.
