Rock On 2 Trailer Review: An Uninspired Rehash Of The Original

Rock On 2 marks the return of Farhan Akhtar and the rest of the Magik band but judging by the trailer, even the addition of Shraddha Kapoor cannot salvage this out-of-tune sequel

Rock On!!, the 2008 film, hit all the right notes with its superb casting and popular musical score.So, it was no surprise that the sequel was a much hyped project. But with the first trailer of Rock On 2 out, we look set for a disappointment.

Director Shujaat Saudagar hasn’t quiet been able to tap into the sentiment of friendship that the earlier film revolved around. The film stars Farhan Akhtar, Prachi Desai, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli and the latest entrants are Shashank Arora, of course Shraddha Kapoor.

She is shown in the film as a talented singer (as per Farhan’s dialogues in the trailer) but grapples with stage fear and Farhan decides to re-launch Magik, the band with her as the lead singer.

At the trailer launch, Arjun Rampal was inconspicuous by his absence. When asked about his non-appearance, Farhan first jokingly said, “You guys think that I am the lost and found counter?”. He then quickly replied, “Arjun is in Lisbon he had to leave as someone in his family is unwell. He will be back in a few days and will join us for the promotions." We just hope that Arjun's mom who was unwell recently is currently doing fine. (See the video above).

The film will release on November 11 at theatres near you. Let's hope it leaves a better impression than the trailer.
