Storyline

Sakshi Shroff, the lonely and neglected wife of busy banking executive, Aditya, decides to give him a surprise on his birthday on July 22nd, but ends surprising him not once but multiple times. While Aditya is thrilled to know that both are going to be parents, and did appear surprised by the celebration, bitterness creeps in when he notices that Sakshi had also invited some ghosts (Rob Nancy and Kedar Zaveri) from his past. This gives rise to unpleasant memories involving a failed music group 'Magik' that he had associated with about a decade ago. Sakshi will soon find out why Aditya is displeased with her; why the music group broke up, ending in violence and acrimony especially between her husband and his former friend, Joseph Mascarenhas; why they cannot perform together ever again; as well as contemplate moving out and living with her mom.

Quotes

Killer 'KD' Drummer: [singing Gloria Gaynor's song] At first I was afraid, I was petrified Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side. But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong And I grew strong and I learned how to get along And now your back, from outta space I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face I should have changed that stupid lock I should have made you leave your key If I'd have known for just one second you'd be back to bother me Go on now go, ...

Coolest Bollywood Movie ever!!!!
30 August 2008 | by danish723See all my reviews

First of all,I must say I'm not a big fan of Hindi movies.I just see them for fun with friends and that's all.But for Rock On! I was expecting something different and I found it!

The story is so well written and the direction is superb that the 3 hours which seem like an ordeal with other movies went so smooth and effortlessly.The best part for me was to see Farhan Akhtar make his transition from direction to acting & singing.His was perhaps the best debut you could ever imagine.It seemed liked he had been acting for ages and his singing was way above par.Prachi Desai looked beautiful and did her part excellently.Arjun Rampal acted out his role so maturely you could actually relate to it.

Well,I must say this is a Hindi movie not to be missed at all.
