I am also waiting to see this movie as the theme looks quite contemprory. Also, i am sure the presence of drool maal " Arjun Rampal" is good money spent. Though, my all time favorite is Milind Soman in the looks department.

Also, i like Purab as he is hatke in looks and style of acting. I must say very good choice of actors for the movie.

Rock On looks good and i can see many people are recommending it.

Any reviews on 'Wanted' And 'CKompany' ?

I am going to watch Wanted or Wall.E today. Wanted has Angelina Jolie (yummie) so it better be good.

And i've seen WallE on dvd as well, still i will be watching it in theater tomorrow. You cant do full justice to a Pixar movie if you dont watch it in a hall.

The plot was OK but the way it was handled left me confused.
Specially the part about Wesley`s (the lead actor) so called training is so over the top and weird that i felt like skipping it and going straight to the action scenes.

The only good thing about the movie apart from Angelina jolie are the special effects.
The bullet trajectory scenes are Awesome.!

Review courtsey rediff
C Kkompany is such a terrible film that it really does not deserve any stars.

I saw Rock On yesterday - afternoon show and the movie rocked.

Immediately you will remember the characters from DCH. Farhan is Aamir, Arjun is Akshay, Purab is Saif and Luke Kenny plays Dimple

Its all about 4 rockers who win a competition and get a contract. A small misunderstanding and all goes wrong. Its a movie about friendship and relationships and how small things can cause rifts.

After 10 years, they get back to gather but can they turn on the magik again?

Casting is perfect and all the 4 guys look the part. Acting wise Farhan Akhtar makes a very good debut. I did not expect him to do as well as he did. Purab is the funny man and he is first class. Luke Kenny is fine and Arjun Rampal carries a forlon expression through out the movie but watch him make an entry in the climax (rocking). Prachi Desai makes her debut and has nothing much to do but look cute and happy. Arjun's wife is super as the girl friend turned wife who keeps nagging Arjun.

A movie like this should have music that complements the mood and Rock On scores high on this point. The songs might not connect when you hear but watch them in the movie is a different experience. Simply Superb.

The cinematography is absolutely superb and direction is well in control too. The movie is slow and has its own pace and in the 2nd half there are 10 minutes that can easily be chopped off. But a movie like this needs the pace to develop.

A DCH this is not but it's right up there close.

Verdict - 3.75/5.
Watch it - it will take you back straight to your college days.

Review - ROCK ON -

Just saw Rock on this evening. Brilliant !!!

If I could describe the movie in a word - I would say - CLASSY !!

The movie as you would all know, is about 4 guys who almost made the Biggest Band in India but for certain reasons could not do it. They come later on after 10 years and give it a try.

Farhan Akhtar as a debut actor has done his job brilliantly. He is a very fine actor and the role he plays demanded some serious acting which he did flawlessly. The other actors Arjun Rampal, Luke Kenny & Purab are all fantastic.

Prachi Desai & Koel Purie look lovely in the movie ( Cute & very Pretty )

The songs are mind blowing specially the last one. Farhan's house / penthouse in the movie is MIND BLOWING !!

I love the scene where they go to Channel V's party when they reunite and Purab does a dance solo singing an english song, Also Prachi sings a hindi song. BRILLIANT !!!

All in all, a great movie. A huge applause to Farhan Akhtar.

4/5

Rock On
what can i say about this movie, it just reminded me of my growing up days in school & college where my day used to start with Zep, CCR, AC/DC & Metallica. Just gave me a rush of blood seeing things that every kid growing up wants to do some day. This movie was not just about music, it was about fulfilling your dreams, your passion. You may earn a lot of money in life but you will get your ultimate satisfaction when you get a chance to do what you always wanted to do... you may fail at it, you may lose, hell who cares, atleast i can say i did what i wanted to! The surprise packet of the movie is Purab Kohli, who's effortless in his role, not to forget the girl who plays Arjun Rampal's wife who was also very competent. We need more actors like him rather than 'stars'. No one in the movie can say that his role was shortchanged, every character was given their shining moment. I wont give a rating for this movie as i'm not a critic, all i want to say is that if you identify with what i've written, you'll go watch the movie.

P.S. I want the DVD to be kept with my Original Box Collection Godfather, Scarface & DCH DVD's, Treasured.
