Rock On...

There couldn't have been a better timing for this movie to hit the screens... well atleast not for the 4 of us who followed it to the screen on the Saturday forenoon.. we did expect a DCH from the feel of it..... Reality hit us when we saw a sea of college-goers (or shud i say bunk-ers)... we didn't exactly look like them ... and "uncle" wud be too much of a word to describe us.. . common man its jus 6 odd years since we walked out of the college gates....
Anyways the first scene/ song does take you back to the DCH days we've all been through.... looooooong loooong ago "once upon a time...". Reality hit for the second time to what ppl call a midlife crises...
The movie takes u back n forth between the dreams we built as youngsters and the reality we choose to live a decade later...How we wud want to forget the facede of our life, , as we associate it with our unfulfilled dreams.. we compromise n succumb to the time & circumstances giving up the uniqueness, magiK within us & get comfortable with the acceptable standard of society, washing out our dreams & identity in the process....
Well it is not that i have reached my "midlife crisis" or something but the events in the near past of my life flashed on the screen as the movie went by.... certainly an eyeopener to all the symptoms of attaining "THE CRISES" in the near future....
Back to the movie on screen, ROCK ON... it did live up to its name as India's first movie on Rock music with some grt sound tracks and hair-dos... good performances from FA AR and not to mention his wife.. it did lack some unconvincing scenes... & I did have to literally ROCK ON ..the bad last seat....
At the end taking a leaf from the movie... it did make me open my eyes to give myself another chance b4 its too late.... as they say better late than never....... and watching the college-goers i wish they would relate to it as India's first movie on Rock music... even after 10 yrs from now....

Dude .... its been a while since I have heard from you :-)

This movie connected with me ... specially given the fact that my elder brother is a rock band drummer in USA :-D and also the fact that I love rock music.

But certainly a nice movie to hit the indian market and a different movie for a change as compared to the typical Karan Johar/ Yash Chopra SRK movies!!
