The film starts off from where it was cleared out years back and we are told by the voice of KD, otherwise known as ‘Executioner Drummer’ (Purab Kohli) that it’s been a long time since the Magik band gave that fantastic execution of Sindbad. In present day, “Adi” Aditya Shroff (Farhan Akhtar) has transformed into a regret topped hermit and radiated music after a deplorable episode.
He has picked the way of generosity in a little town in the North East to shake off his blame yet keeps on misery from repeating bad dreams that abandon him in icy sweat. Then again, woman fortunes has been blessing Joe Mascarenhas (Arjun Rampal) as he is presently a big name reality-indicate judge and the proprietor of a swanky night-club. Enter Jiah Sharma (Shraddha Kapoor), an agitated young lady with Daddy issues looking for asylum in music.
Going with her is a yearning sarod player, Uday (Shashank Arora). Awed by these two adolescents, Joe welcomes them to perform at his club. In any case, once on the stage, Jiah backs off ultimately leaving everybody shocked. What takes after next is a startling disclosure that gives the Magik a thought process to rejoin and shake on at the end of the day!
Farhan Akhtar gets the most extreme screen-time in the principal half as the producers need us to feel his depression and blame to associate with his character. Tragically, rather it just abandons you longing for beams of daylight and the scenes featuring KD and Joe come as a major alleviation at such minutes.
One wished we could have had a greater amount of KD (Purab Kohli) and Joe (Arjun Rampal) in the film! A more definite understanding about their changed lives could have made for some intriguing watch. Shraddha Kapoor gives one of her most controlling exhibitions as you never get an opportunity to feel her internal clashes.
Look out for Shashank Arora! He takes away the show at whatever point he is on screen. Prachi Desai winds up additional with a part that could be credited as a visitor appearance while Kumud Mishra experiences a silly part. Also, yes, we missed Luke Kenny!
The greatest downside of Rock On 2 is its poor, skinny script which works just externally. You never truly feel for any of the characters whether they are cheerful or dismal. Assist, the creators even toss in a socio-political point post interim that just drags the story abandoning you in fatigue. Marc Koninckx benefits a vocation with the cinematography.
Decision: One wished they hadn’t destroyed our recollections of the primary film. The producers neglected to cast a “Magik” spell this time! There’s no damage in avoiding this one.
