Rockstar (Movie) - Intense, Not Cute

Director : Imtiaz Ali
Banner : Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd and Eros International
Music : A R Rahman
Cast : Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri, Shammi Kapoor

We got expectations about every product, every movie. When it is an Imtiaz Ali movie, we naturally expect it to be cute and simple. Though the music and trailers hint us to think the other way, how much did we change the perception... When Rockstar audio was released, many turned it down saying it was not good. When something is offered very new, it will need some time to sink with the audience. Now when the songs been repeated in TV, they became everyone's favorite. Movie also could be hit by the same view. Audience was not expecting something like this from Imtiaz. For the Junglee Jawani kind of scenes they were cheering. When Janardhan was playing around foolishly in the beginning, they liked it. But when Jordan was going through trauma, they were bored and commenting not again, yeh banda kya kar raha hein etc. Unfortunately, movie will not get the luxury of another look like the audio had...
