Rock On- DCH 2?

With this weekend witnessing slew of releases…Rock On was one of those which also hit the silver screens across the nation.
well Initially when the music was launched of the same movie some where in July I guess..my Initial reaction was that what the heck this will be all about..and I was almost with the decision- not to watch the movie, but then classes wrapping up I was having plenty of time in hand this Friday to catch up with the new release..and frankly speaking I went to hall looking for Bachna ae Haseeno..and changed my mind on the ticket window itself..neways time for some review…

well the movie comes from the makers of DCH (Dil Chahta Hai), with this movie being a acting launchpad of Farhan Akthar (who has already proved his mettle as a director) stakes are high.
Movie opens with the already hit number “Socha Hai”…and I must say that it really sets the mood of the whole offering coming up in next few hours.
this movie is about a rock band called as MAGIK..with four members in it..Aditya Shroff(Farhan), Joe (Arjun), Rob (Luke Kenny) and KD killer drummer (Puran Kohli).

The story revolves around this band itself and happenings around it..infact the storyline is pretty simple, from the first reel itself you know that what will be the end of the movie.
in initial hours of movie its all about the yippee things..I mean fun and frolic involved with the band..etc etc.

The story is simple. There is a band called Magik, they get their first break with one audio company, but while making of their debut album, loads of ego clashes crop up between Aditya and Joe leading to breakup of the band..and then you know what happens after ten years of breakup, all four members of the band are busy with something or other, but none of them is happy because the dream they saw of making MAGIK a success was never fulfilled.
Bottom line..the movie is about breaking up and then how the members reunite to fulfill their dream after ten years.
Acting was everyone is in top form..watching Farhan altough is not that pleasent and sometimes he is too loud..but still you can see that maturity in his acting, Arujn Rampal has finally got his due..I don’t know why he is always underutilized by directors..but trust me this time he is a revelation. watch him when he expresses without saying a word-Amazing.
Purab is another fine actor..who movie after movie is maturing, he is lovable to watch.
Rob is also good I mean ok types.

Overall the movie is primarily for Multiplex audiance, and will surely find crowd in college going pepole.
Somehow this movie has a hangover of DCH, but nevermind even that hangover is good to watch.

Songs in my opinion are a letdown infact I feel there was much scope for improving those songs..but never mind finished good is of top notch.

Climax of the movie is amazing, the concert, the songs, Arjun’s Pain..everything has been captured beautifully..

7.5/10 is what I will give to this movie..Go for it…


Struggle called- The Dark knight..

Few days back only I saw this flick- The Dark Knight directed by Christopher Nolan. Normally I watch movies with my peers, but somehow this time around it was me all alone watching the flick, sitting on the very first row of the multiplex and trust me I have never seen a movie so captivating, and so enthralling to the core.

The best part of the movie is that..it beautifully captures the struggle within human mind. The portrayal of Joker- one the arch nemesis of Batman by heath ledger is top class..he is not devastating yet he is so cruel, and every time you see him on screen your brain starts thinking that “what the heck he gonna do now”..in fact you would love to hate him- such is the powerful portrayal of Heath ledger.

The hair raising sequences of the bat motor and joker chase where Batman strangles the whole trailer is simply amazing.

The role of Harvey dent the attorney is another high point of the movie..how he begins as a good man and ends up giving his life like a villain is superb.

Not only that..the dialogues which the character delivers are also one of the finest one done in any movie..just take a look

The Joker: I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can’t savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

The Joker: I’m a dog chasing cars. I don’t have plans. I just do things. I’m not a schemer.

The Joker: This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. “If you’re good at something, you never do it for free.”

The Joker: Madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

Harvey Dent: The only morality in an amoral world is chance.

and the best one…..

Harvey Dent: You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

and many more…

I can bet that that this time around Heath should surely get posthumous Oscar for his portrayal of Joker.
Of course the constant struggle within Bruce wayne a.k.a The Batman..is another point in  movie which makes the whole the special one.

Batman Begins (2005) was the first movie in the series and trust me when I saw the first installment..I was not at all impressed may be because I felt that it was a bit too philosophical. But the new edition has already proved its worth on box office and is going house full even after weeks of release.

I just wanna say that to feel the magic you need to watch it…after all

The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming!
