Rock On..

Musicians. We've worshiped them, loved them, been jealous of them, dressed and walked like them. And most of us would easily cut off an arm or a leg, to just live a day of their life.

Rock On is a movie about four men, whose lives take a twist from making music to taking up responsibilities that are thrown their way. Slowly, they are forced to give up their dreams and lead stereotypical 'make money, marry wife, have kids' life.

It is an eye opener for most of us who presumed that rock stars are demi gods, who lead perfect lives. Women, talent, free food at all the places where you play a gig, what more can you ask for?

It also strongly underlines the fact that life is uber strange. We never know where we're going, until we've reached. Planning out our entire life is a decent thing to do, i suppose. Our parents did it, our grandparents did it and they all did okie. But, okie is not good enough. Extraordinary is what we should be looking for.

Philosophy aside, the movie is killer. I loved it and I would definitely give it a second watch. The soundtrack is foot tapping and fun to hear. Investing on the audio CD would not be a total waste of moolah.

Aha, mention of free food here as well. Nice movie, but it kind of stereotypes the so called "indian rock star" not necessarily in a negative way. Things that need clarification after this movie:

1. Rock music isn't always happy, upbeat and glam.
2. The world has changed and not everybody in production houses hate them anymore.
3. I honestly believe such talented people can bag much prettier wives.

We, poor investment bankers, have been beaten to death in this movie. Sob Sob! :(

True about the music...but can't agree a lot with the fact that the movie is a "killer"....thou its very true that its a good and probably one of the most natural movies.For me the only reason to watch it twice is the fact that there are no other good movies to watch as of now!!!!Sorry gayathri.. ;(
