Rock On!! 2 Movie
Rock On 2: Weak reunion of the band Magik but hope from music
Rock On 2 is a sequel to the 2008 musical hit Rock On!! The band Magik is made alive again at least on the celluloid. The movie stars Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Shraddha Kapoor, Purab Kohli, Shashank Arora and Prachi Desai. It is also a musical thriller with as many as nine sound tracks and the music is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, musician of the Rock On.
Aditya Shroff (Farhan Akhtar) of Rock On is now living life of a recluse as he blames him for the sad demise of young man. He has settled in a remote village in North East and practices philanthropy. Kedar Zarveri or KD (Purab Kohli), the drummer of Magik, is now a voice over actor. Joe (Arjun Rampal), lead guitarist of Magic, is now owns a swanky nightclub and he’s also judge of a reality show. All the Magik enthusiasts are doing well except Shroff, who’s cut off his relations with music.
The music friends try to revive the band Magik by bringing the lead singer Shroff back. Also two new bandmates are introduced out of the two one is Jia Sharma (Shraddha Kapoor). Jia is an aspiring singer struggling hard to overcome her repression from her father, who’s a classical music maestro. They all come together and play some good music; sometimes for social and charitable causes.
Rock On was released in 2008 and the sequel is coming after eight years but it is shown that people still remember the band and its stars. The new bandmates are also doing well in and the band is revived. It seems that the movie is banking highly on music as the script is quite weak. The song Jaago is the lead song and it is sung by Farhan Akhtar and Siddharth Mahadevan. Shraddha Kapoor has also sung two solo songs and the songs were appreciated.
Rock On 2 first look & poster
The poster is made intriguing by including all the stars in it. It seems that the stars have torn the poster to show their true colors. Farhan Akhtar is wearing a hat and sorting beard and moustaches. He is shown in a challenging mode. Arjun Rampal wears a serious look and Shraddha Kapoor seems to be confused at something. Two bandmates are on the downside. Purab Kohli is enjoying the music while the other one is smiling at the audiences. Rock On is printed on the middle of the poster and release date is highlighted in red color.
Why watch the movie?
Rock On was a huge success and Rock On 2 is its sequel. The movie has a direct connection to the 2008 musical thriller. If you have watched Rock On then you will certainly not want to miss the sequel.
