Rock On 2, a rocky sequel

date

11-Nov-2016

Rock On 2 strengthens my belief that it’s never a good idea to make a sequel unless there’s some unfinished business that the world needs to know about.


The second instalment of the hit 2008 musical Rock On!!, starring Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli, seems terribly contrived and insipid. It isn’t backed by a solid script.


The magic and charm that were evident in the original film, which chronicled the reunion of a college band, Magik, are missing in its sequel.


Akhtar returns as the lead singer Aditya Shroff. He has turned into this remorse-filled recluse who gives up on music because he blames himself for a freak suicide of a young man. A tortured soul, he has cut himself off from the world and prefers to do philanthropy in a village in the North East. There’s a voice over by actor Purab Kohli, who’s the drummer from Magik, explaining the changes in an annoying philosophical tone. Rampal, who was the poor, romantic soul of Magik, is now the owner of a swanky nightclub and a reality TV show judge. They are all doing well, except for the tragedy that seems to have fallen upon Shroff.
