Storyline

The movie chronicles the arrival of a (Hindu) student to a strict all-boys Christian boarding school in India and his assimilation into the school. The change is quite dramatic to the protagonist and there are a lot of events that would look extremely abusive to the viewer. Written by Neel V Kumar <neelvk@terway.com>

You'll live the movie
16 October 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Nagesh Kukunoor's best to be placed with Iqbal I guess.

An original film with some great music from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Leslie Lewis.

The direction is superb and so is the acting.

Kukunoor shines as the PT teacher but its newcomer Rajesh Naidu's film... actually its your film... and mines... you take the movie with you and you'll treasure it. It takes you back to those good old school day... the scenes seem to have been taken straight out of our lives.

The problems, the solutions... the journey... the friendship... the love...

Rockford is truly a must-watch...... a great one from Bollywood! My Rating: 10/10
