I just saw Rock On. I have to say the movie was technically brilliant with an awesome story and direction. If not for some unnecessary subplots and a few cinematic liberties, the movie well could have been another Dil Chahta Hai. The music was top notch and the characterizations, pretty good.
I loved Farhan Akhtar’s character. The perfect rock star, anyone? A passionate guy with abundant talent but with his own shortcomings. It reminded me of Russel Hammond from Almost Famous. And I was silently hoping for a character like Elaine Miller to give him some valuable lessons in life.
pichhle saat dinon mein maine khoya
kabhi khud pe hansa main,
kabhi khud pe roya
So I just feel good about myself. I’ve always felt characters named Aditya have been pretty cool and liked by all. They are all very nice guys, different from the rest with a charm of their own. Not like the dreamy Rajs and Rahuls. But definitely not flawless. For example:
- Aditya of Rock On
- Aditya of Dum Dum Dum
- Aditya of Jab We Met
- Aditya of Saathiya (if you could forget Vivek Oberoi and put in Madhavan :p)
So, you get the drift?
