For anybody who has watched ‘Rock on!!’, they know it is more than just a movie. Eight years ago this cult classic gave us major squad goals and redefined the face of rock music in Bollywood. Needless to say, the movie rocked my music hungry soul from the ground below and when the sequel was announced my fragile, fan heart could barely contain the excitement it brought.
Finally, the creators graced us with the much awaited ‘Rock on 2’ teaser today and it is everything I hoped for, NOT!
While the teaser shows the band ‘Magik’ making a comeback after an eight-year long hiatus in what possibly looks like Northeast India, the addition of two new band members namely, Shraddha Kapoor and Shashank Arora seems like a risk that could have been avoided. ‘Aashiqui 2’ was enough of a torture for my ears, and I certainly don’t need another round of Shraddha Kapoor wringing her average lungs out with the help of autotune (Pfft! yeah, like you didn’t know). Let’s please accept the fact that the woman can’t sing, not even if her life depended on it. Also, am I expecting an extramarital affair between Farhan and Shraddha? If so, I’m so not ready for that.
This sequel is surely a gamble on the success of ‘Rock On!!’ franchise and I can’t wait to see how this chaotic musical turns out to be. Watch the teaser here.
What do you have to say my fellow rockers? Leave a comment.
