Rock On 2 fails to spread 'Magik' it promised

Movie Review: Rock On 2 fails to spread Magik it promised

 

Directed by Shuaat Saudagar Rock On 2 is a musical film featuring Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Shraddha Kapoor, Purab Kohli, Prachi Desai and Shashank Arora. The movie is the sequel to the 2008 release Indian rock music drama Rock On. Rock On which was a youth-centric film and had beautifully delivered the passion for music and creating a band. The songs of the film became a huge sensation with the band, Magik, becoming an instant rage. In the movie, Aditya (Farhan Akhtar) seeks redemption after a sad incident disturbs him deeply. He moves to Meghalaya for some soul-searching and immerses himself in humanitarian causes and leaves away his band. Whereas, in Mumbai, Joe (Arjun Rampal) opens up a posh club and starts judging a reality show. The other lead in the movie, KD (Purab Kohli) still hopes to reunite the band with the two once again and make awesome music someday. While, the new actress is an addition to the old music band group in the movie and her track is a forceful one. Unfortunately, the sequel of the movie fails to impress us with the same Magik. The songs of the movie are less impactful. Only the original title track managed to impress us. Shot in Shillong the movie has some picturesque scenes but the cinematography lacks perfection. Farhan Akhtar has done an amazing job and all the actors have done justice to their roles. Moreover, Rock On 2 is a movie that's about a rock band and has music as its theme but doesn't promise an extraordinary soundtrack and it adds on to the negative points of the movie.

Shujaat Saudagar’s direction lacks a lot of effort and coherency here. There are certain points in the movie where there’s no connect between the scenes and is a complete mis-match, a very patchy kind of direction. Apart from direction, the music composed by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy has left us unimpressed. The music of this musical drama fails to spread the Magik, like the previous one. Towards the end, you’ll see Aditya’s son Rob taking interest in music, which gives us a hint that it might be a sign for another film in the franchise! NO...please don’t do this!

Overall, the story fails to spread the Magik! We suggest you can give it a miss for the weekend and enjoy the chilly hours at home!
