Rock On Movie Review

I saw this movie(Rock on) yesterday, and I am somehow not able to judge it very well. After I came out of the theater, I went back to all the things being portrayed in the flick, and thought it was a very influential movie signifying some of the very bitter truths of life, when out of the desire to reach at the top, the smallest of tiffs affects your life big time.

It is a story about this band called Magic, made up by Arjun Rampal as the lead guitarist, Farhan Akhtar as the singer, Luke Kenny on the synthesizer and Purab Kohli on the drums. It deals with their biggest dream to cut an album and what all they have to compromise for it. Some parts of the movie are way too emotional. It is a better movie for those who have been in close touch with the rock culture.

I loved Purab Kohli’s role. Prachi aka Bani was the perfect casting for the too sweet to be true role and who knows she might start a great career thanks to rock on!! The music could have been better keeping the rock elements in mind. It is surely a must watch of the weekend.

My star: 3.5/5

Hari Puttar sued

I thought only people like Rakhi Sawant could put up allegations on people for instant fame…But oh my gosh…Here I see, Warner Bros, the label behind the surer dupre hit Hollywood series, Harry Potter, which is based on JK Rowling’s novel is suing a Bollywood film, Hari Puttar-a comedy of terrors. Reason: The name is very close to the Hollywood flick’s name!!

As we had updated you people earlier, Hari Puttar is about a boy names Hari Prasad Dhoonda, nicknamed Hari Puttar, who shifts to Britain when his father is posted there.
His aim is to save this very confidential chip that comprises of some of the most valuable information about his dad’s findings, but the boy, unlike Harry Potter, does not have any magical powers.

The movie is being produced by Mirchi Movies, which states that any resemblance to the Hollywood series is purely coincidental. Mr. Manish, chief of Mirchi Movies also expressed that he did not see any kind of similarities between the two films. Same were the words on the lips of Zain Khan, the lead star kid.

Ab in gore logon ko kya samjhaein, hamare desh ka sabse common naam Hari hai, to usme hamari kya galti hai!!! Sue them for them….Jokes!!

Rock On Movie Review Hindi

Completely Rock On !!!! today released movie is Rock On, debut of Dil Chahta Hai fame director Farhan Akhtar and tv serial actress Prachi Desai. Rock On is based upon the youth genre and their relationship and friendship. Director Abhishek Kapoor has successfully given a better treatment of the film. he used the young talent skillfully and makes a entertaining movie with human sentiments. Young generation likes such movies as we saw that ppl like the last movie on youth Jaane tu yaa Janne naa.

Rock On is the story about four freinds(Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Luke Kenny) who want to put thogether the best band India has ever seen but fails to make it and years later they all come together and try to fulfill their dreams again. Music is very good and Shankar Ehsaan Loy again produce good music which will be top on the chart in coming weeks.

Arjun Rampal shows he is enough experienced to work with other naive. Perhaps his best performance since his debut. Prachi Desai was good and she has proved that she is able to work in big screen as well. She played the role of Frahan Akhtar's wife and I like her role in the movie.

Purab Kohli was also good in the movie and got enough coverage unlike his past movies. Luke Kenny is the new name to bollywood and I like him the way he worked in the Rock On. Shahana Goswami is a talented gal and her performance was one of the most challenging for any newcomer and she showed enough confidence.

But if you remembered Sanjay Dutt and John Abraham starrer Zinda is looking like such type of movie. Then what is dissimilarity in Kidnap???

Govinda as singher and John Abraham as producer

It is like, when people fail terribly in their specific lines, they find better ways to prove themselves. I guess that is what these two actors are up to.

We hear that Govinda plans to take up singing…that too professionally!! He has recorded a track for his upcoming movie Loot which is being made under the banner of Popcorn Entertainment limited. The song is titled Heeng Lage Na Fitkari Rang Chokhka Hoy. Shamir, who is the composer, is quite happy of chi chi’s singing skills.

Coming up to the macho John Abraham. From what we hear, it is to be believed thatthe hunk has taken up production. He would be producing Abbas Tyrewalla’s next film and acting in it as well. The flick is related to man woman relationships written by Tyrewalla.

Best of luck to both the actors!!!!

Fantastic hindi movie

The script writer of Maine Pyar Kyun Kia and Partner, Sanjay Chael is all set for his next directorial film. Remember Khoobsoorat?? Starring Urmila Matondkar and Sanjay Dutt??? It had the song--- Ae Shivani, tu lagti hai nani!!!! That was one of Sanjay’s directorial products.

Sanjay’s next movie titled Fantastic has a very unique lead pair in the form of Konkana Sen Sharma and Paresh Rawal. According to me, it was quite a clever move to take these two in the film as both of them are very fine actors and might just grab a lot of fan following into the theatres to watch this one. Other that these two, the movie also has Neha Dhupia, Javed Jaffery and Rahul Khanna.

Paresh Rawal, this Friday faced a big flop in the form of Maan Gaye Mughal-e-Azam and we hope he does not screw up things in his future projects.

Jade Goody and Shilpa in Bigg Boss

Since the time Big Boss has its trailers have started appearing on air, it has sure gained the maximum publicity.

The first time was when Shilpa Shetty was offered a whopping 8 crores for hosting the show. It was believed that as she has won the international version of the show, she would do justice of being the host and thus she settled down for a very heavy price.

Then, there was a lot of shout here and there, who is going to enter the disastrous house. It was announced that Mika and Sheryl Chopra are some of the contestants but when the introductory episode was shown, neither of the two were there but a special guest, Jade Goody, famous for her racist comments that she passed on Shilpa at the UK version Big Brother.

Now, it is heard that Jade Goody has been diagnosed with cancer and has left the show. Amazingly, the most emotional response of sympathy hat she got was from Shilpa, who once hated her big time. We hope, the lady gets hale and hearty soon.

Hamilton Palace hindi movie

After the disastrous failure of Mimoh’s debute movie, of whose name even I do not remember, and do not want to remember, Mimoh has another flck in his kitty titled Hamiltonian Palace.

The complete cast is:
Shakti Kapoor
Shanti Priya
Raza Murad
Ashutosh Rana
Milind Gunaji

It is heard that the flick was earlier slated to be titled Yudh – the war and the Murder, but finally set to the now title. The director is Raj N Sippy and produced by Salim. The choreography has been done by Chinni Prakash. The genre of the film is Suspense and Thriller, hope this movie will not bore us like the Jimmy did. The story is about the Palace where suspicious things take place but it is not the copy cat of Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Mimoh is getting few more roles in his upcoming movies because his father is his god father in Bollywood, he is a good dancer but worst actor of his generation. Even Rajpal Yadav is far better actor than Mimoh.

Wake up Sid hindi movie

Wake up Sid

Karan Johar is all busy these days with umpteen projects in his hands. And what is more than visible is that he has left his superstitious belief in the letter “K”. While his next film Dostana starts with D, the other one is Wake Up Sid, starting with W. The movie is being directed by Ayan Mukherjee, who is supposedly Kajol’s cousin. This will be his first directorial venture at the tender age of 24 year. The main star cast of the film includes Ranbir Kapoor, whose film Bachna Ae Haseeno was just tagged as a hit, and Konkana Sen Sharma. The movie will be made under the banner of Dharma Productions.

Although, Ranbir and Konkana’s jodi is some thing very uncommon and looks incompatible, but its heard that the script demanded it for it’s an urban love story.

Recently, Karan was in with the gossip mongers claiming that he and Ekta Kapoor were in a relationship. Although he shunned away all such rumors, it would have been sure a fascinating Jodi, I must say….
