Warning - Lots of images!!
Rock On followed the Dil Chahta Hai formula - tale of male friends who are living their lives now, but for some reason, they are no longer friends and think back to their past. The rock super stars theme was good to see. Not many Bollywood films portray it. I am not a huge fan of rock music but I like music overall and listen to music all over the world. Funny that I say that since when I was a little girl, I've always wanted to be in a rock band. I even took guitar lessons but that didn't last long at all.
To watch the struggles of the rock band coming together to make it big in flashbacks was good. When the band performed live, I was feeling the "majik" of being there. Very Hollywood-like. In my opinion, I think most people's dreams are to be in the entertainment industry, whether it's a singer, dancer, model, you name it. Not trying to say if you are good at it or not, just that as little kids, we dream of being on top of the world.
Aditya is the lead singer for the former rock band, "Majik." Now, he is married to Sakshi and is a successful business man.
Joe, the lead guitarist for former rock band, "Majik." Now, he is married to Debbie, the love of his life. He is still struggling rock star to make end meet to provide for his wife and son.
What impresses me most about Joe is his heart is still in being a rock star. That's his dream and he doesn't give up.
Since he was the only guy still trying to live his dream, he kept his rock star look.
Song #5 - "Ye Tumhari Meri Baatein"
Song #7 - "Sinbad The Sailor"
Loved how the film showed the band struggling, unhappily singing at dandiya events.
Overall, definitely worth a watch...but still I was a bit bored, maybe it has a lot to do with me expecting more.
