Imtiaz Ali who's known for his romantic movies has given us a totally different take on Love stories. Donno how the Audience is gonna react to his narration but i personaly loved it. Ranbir just shows us how much he has evolved as an actor from his role in Saawariya as Ranbir 'Bare Ass' Raj to Jordan in 'The Rockstar'.
The Music by the Maestro , AR Rahman is another high point of the film. Brilliantly picturised by Anil Mehta.Debutante Nargis Fakhri was 'pretty' decent. What I dont understand is why's everyone comparing her to Arjun Rampal !!?? I mean srsly .. she aint that expressionless. Anyways that is just my opinion. Even though her role had huge scope she failed to pull it off convincingly. Now lets start talking about the Male lead .... Mr Ranbir 'Wonder Boy' Kapoor ... His surname is so Powerful and Prestigious that people even from the industry wanted to him to be a HIT since he first came on. But now he has finally pulled it off (n dat too brilliantly!). I had always liked his acting & admired his script selections. Whether it was Wake Up Sid , Rocketsingh or Raajneeti. The Lad did a commendable job in all his works (barring SAAWARIYA ofcourse!) even though some of the films didnt do that well in Box-Office. With this one he sure has struck Gold. (Best Actor Award .. Anyone ??)
About the Music ..which has now become a RAGE ... i really dont think i need to say anything here ... Just that Its By AR RAHMAN... Dats more than enough i guess.
Now lets talk about the Captain of the ship, Mr Imtiaz Ali.
He has so far delivered Hattrick of hits (Socha na tha , Jab We Met & Love Aaj Kal). And 'Rockstar' had been his dream project & been in making for the last 8 years. With Rockstar he sure has taken a detour & has also taken a huge gamble of sorts. But now after lookin at the 5-day collection in Box-Office I can certainly say that the gamble has paid off.
Ali's unique charaterization of Janardhan AKA Jordan is truly remarkable & his narration a 'bit' different from what we normally see in Hindi Films (but a tad bit sloppy at some places).
The Editing (Aarti Bajaj) lapses at certain places do hamper the film but AR Rahman's Background score & Ranbir's screen presence totally over-shadow that.
