MAGIK reunites magically!
11 November 2016 | by maulin5See all my reviews

After watching not so convincing trailer of the second part of the superhit film of the year 2008- Rock On!, many were saying that this film will not be good. After music launch, the listeners started complaining that songs were not so good. Many Rock On movie lovers lost interest in this one. And above this, the problem of currency is also going on. That's why, Rock On 2 releases today with a very poor opening.

Story starts with the individual situations of three persons from the musical group- Magik. Aditya lives alone in Shilong as he was trying to get out from the one thing that he did wrong to someone. Joe is a reality show judge as well as a bar owner. And KD owns his music room. Jiya (Shradhha) enters in the frame in a dramatic way. And then the story begins to change. How the group reunites and stands to help the people of Shilong and how Adi can forgive himself for that thing which was related to Jiya, too and how Jiya fights her own battles are the questions to be answered till the ending of the film.

Farhan Akhtar gives a powerful performance in an intense character, not in a negative way. But, I would like to cheer him for his wonderful dialogues. Those are awesome. Arjun and Purab suit perfectly to their roles. Kumd Mishra gives an impact-full performance as Jiya's father. Shashank has not to do much. There are two boys, one who plays Jiya's brother and the other who plays Manjeet are perfect. But, above all, Shradhha is here, giving her career best performance, in both the ways- like acting and singing.

People who are saying that music is not good, are the ones who likes only songs containing words like Daru, DJ & Party! Or may be, the ones who never went for any musical concert of Hindi songs. I mean, look at all of the songs one by one. There is not a single song which is bad. Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy have created the best music for the film and its situations. And in which, Javed Akhtar's meaningful lyrics applies some magical touch. Jaago song was shot superbly. The flashback song of marriage is also contains fun like the previous installment had. Shradhha's songs are heart-touching for sure. And above these, I can't describe the songs from the concert!

Yes, in the end, I guess for 20-25 minutes, one concert has been displayed on screen. I was tapping my foot in the whole sequence. I just loved the song Wo Jahaan. Magik once again creates magical experience for me.

Critics and people, who don't understand music and musical groups, I want to ask you to please don't give negative reviews if you don't understand. If you are a fan of Rock On, than you must go and watch this despite any negative review. They are writing so because of their illness. I suggest them to test their taste! Believe me, it's a complete theater experience should not have to be missed! As a music and Rock On lover, I don't find anything boring or over dramatic. It's just a competitor to the previous one.

In the end, I'm concluding with such a beautiful lines from this film- Wo Jahaan, Koi Dukh Ho Na Ho Koi Gum, Wo Jahaan, Palkein Na Ho Num... Dilon Mein Ho Na Deewarein, Na Duriyaan, Wo Jahaan, Purey Ho Armaan...
