It was 8 years back when the band ‘Magik’ performed last time. For those who do not know, well, ‘Magik’ was the name of the musical band of Farhan Akhtar in ‘ Rock On ’ (2008). The film had redefined music in Bollywood movies with its unique and lively compositions. The songs sound fresh and gripping till date and are relished and grooved upon by the whole generation.
As the movie comes up with its sequel, Rock On 2, we have impeccable reason to be excited. After a long wait, the teaser of the film is out now. Based in Northeastern India, the most unexplored region of the country, the ‘Magik’ band will now revive its magic there. The teaser grabs your attention the very moment the first shot of a boatman sailing the boat, a breath-taking scenic one appears on the screen. Then the grooving signature music of ‘Rock On’ plays in the background as the super-excited members of ‘Magik’ band perform on stage.
The new addition to the star cast, Shraddha Kapoor’s role reminds us to her role in Aashiqui 2. Where Arjun Kapoor helps her to gain confidence in her singing talent. Similarly, here, Farhan urges her to sing and explore her talent. The other new addition, Shashank Arora did not get much of the screen space though. Prachi Desai and Purab Kohli are full of life and zeal. Whereas Arjun Rampal looks intense and hot as always. In the musical score, as the female vocalist (Shraddha) sings the signature tune, ‘Rock On’ makes us miss Farhan Akhtar’s voice.
Super high on drama, adventure, friendship and music (obviously); the teaser looks promising and grips you till the end. We hope the sequel is able to weave the magik among audiences, as ‘Rock On’ did.
