Rockstar Movie Review



Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
It's a far-from-perfect film, but it has honesty and depth which is hard to find in most Hindi films today. Despite several hiccups, especially in the film’s post-intermission portions, Rockstar is an admirable effort if only for how unconventionally director Imtiaz Ali tells this tale of great passion. The romance at the core of this film is a complex one, and the film offers no easy answers.The film’s chief lapses are its meandering script, and its less-than-impressive leading lady, both of which cost the film dearly. Nargis Fakhri is lovely to look at, but offers very little in terms of actingRockstar is never as surefooted as Imtiaz’s breakout hit Jab We Met, but it’s a braver, riskier film than any he’s previously made

The problem with ROCKSTAR is that it starts off most impressively, has some terrific moments in between, but the writing gets so erratic and incoherent as it heads towards the conclusion that you wonder am I really watching an Imtiaz Ali film? On the whole, ROCKSTAR does not live up to the confidence and expectations from the otherwise very skilled and accomplished film-maker Imtiaz Ali. The film suffers immensely due to a disorderly screenplay, especially in its post-interval portions. However, the silver lining or the comforting prospect is the virtuoso performance by Ranbir Kapoor and the captivating score by A.R. Rahman, which justify that one extra star.

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:Times Of India
Leave it to Imtiaz Ali to take a love story and present it in a manner that's completely different from run-of-the-mill Bollywood. The highpoint of Rockstar is it's high tension, high-on-passion romance between two unlikely people: the completely low brow JJ who doesn't like his girls nice and clean and Heer (Nargis Fakhri), the uptown Stephenian who is all set to get married and settle down to sweet domesticity like all sweet girls do.The fact that this romance unfolds on screen in the form of an explosive musical, capturing JJ's transmutation into Jordan, the edgy artist, makes the film an absolutely engaging affair. eventually, the film is a milestone in Ranbir Kapoor's career as an actor and a classic cut from the AR Rahman and Mohit Chauhan combo. Savour a beautiful experience. Watch Rockstar and wait for Imtiaz Ali's next from his compendium of love.

What’s Good: The performances; the music; the look of the film; the photography and locations.What’s Bad: A couple of questions unanswered in the film; the class appeal of the film; the dark and depressing portions of the second half.Verdict: Rockstar will meet with a mixed response: one section of the audience (mainly youngsters in the cities) will love it while another section (mainly the single-screen audience and public of smaller cities) will find it ordinary

don't let the title fool you. This movie is more an old-school Bollywood love story than the advent of heavy metal in Hindi cinema. Jordan is more like Devdas than his idol Jim Morrison. But this film is devoid of any insight into an artiste's anguish, try as it might by quoting Jalaluddin Rumi. There are shades of Jab We Met , in the sense that the first half is full of light-hearted moments between an unlikely pair (in this case Janardhan and Heera Kaul, played by Nargis) and that the second half is intense, with twists.The first half is full of promise, and the gags are funny as you follow the lovably foolish Delhi [ Images ] college kid Janardhan Jhakar's attempts at being the Robert Plant of Pitampura. But the realism disappears before you can say Sadda Haq. Rockstar is what is called a one-time watch. Just don't expect too much

Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Saibal Chatterjee Site:NDTV
in its initial build-up, informed with a robust sense of quirky humour, Rockstar shows a fair degree of promise.Sadly, the narrative, lacks the substance that a film as long as this would have needed to sustain itself.But despite all the frenetic movement in space that Rockstar offers, the film really goes nowehere. It feels strangely static.Rockstar is a gig gone wrong. And that is sad. For there is much in the film that is worth commending.Rockstar has a Sufi soul. If only it had been set free and allowed to go the whole hog!

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Aniruddha Guha Site:DNA
Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar is a bittersweet journey of a man, an artist, from being an everyman to a superstar.Yet, Imtiaz makes it work somehow, interweaving the fantastical romantic part of the film with the more gritty, dark bits deftly. In the end, how much you enjoy Rockstar will largely depend on whether the balance between the story of a broken, unfulfilled musician and the more conventional love story works for you.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Shubhra Gupta Site:IndianExpress
And true to type, the actor is better than the film. ‘Rockstar’ disappoints; Ranbir doesn’t. Till about here, say twenty minutes in, ‘Rockstar’ looks as if there may be something in it, despite the familiar post-teen love tropes that Ali sets up.The second half is a mess, as it travels picturesquely but cluelessly from Kashmir to Prague in search of ideas. And it goes on for much too long, as we wait for something better to happen. Nothing of the sort does.

With flawless first half courtesy engaging narration which strikes a good balance between flashback and present moments, Rockstar starts on a very good note. Rockstar surely rocks in first half but falls on the face as second half begins.Power-packed performances especially Ranbir Kapoor for whom this movie will surely prove to be milestone, hilarious and some intense dialogues, cinematography and music are the strengths. Totally clattered post interval sequences, non-crisp editing and screenplay are the drawbacks.Overall, Rockstar is a one-time watch and worth a treat for both fans and non-fans of Ranbir Kapoor who does justice to his character at every moment in the film.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:SuperGoodMovies Site:SuperGoodMovies
Imtiaz Ali in all his films, be it ‘Jab We Met’ and ‘Luv Aaj Kal’ portrayed passionate true love and he goes a step further with this one. His storytelling is par excellence and is commendable. Another thing that’s worth mentioning is the way he makes his actors perform. The first half an hour is absolutely desi and will totally connect to the masses. The rest of the film, however is very international and good production values. Though, it does get a bit repetitive in the second half. Go watch Rockstar for Ranbir and Imtiaz’s direction. A must watch for all true lovers.

  36. the movie is average because the first half shows that boy has a dream but he doesn't get opportunity and second part shows that hero has everything but doesn't have any loved one to share his happiness it shows that sucess is not everything until u have someone to share.... i will give it 3 out of 5

  37. YEPME Fashion

    Rockstar is director Imtiaz Ali’s sensitive look at love in modern times
    with its accompanying complexities. The journey is shown through the
    coming-of-age of a gawky Delhi campus boy Janardhan Jakhar (Ranbir
    Kapoor). Sitting in the college canteen, JJ (as called by his college
    buddies), dreams of becoming a rockstar like Jim Morrison. And on the
    advice of the canteen owner he goes looking for heartbreak and angst to
    bring out the artist in him. Enter Heer (Nargis Fakri), the college
    hottie, who wants to have a fling with life before she settles down to
    blissful domesticity. The movies goes on to show JJ's eventual
    metamorphosis into Jordan the rebellious rockstar. Rockstar is the story
    of stardom with its emptiness, intrusive media, and crazy fans. But it’s
    also a love story between two very different people. The movie strays as
    it goes across various locations like Delhi, Kashmir, and Europe. But
    overall it has a heartfelt narrative. A R Rehman’s music is hypnotic and
    adds magic to the beautiful cinematography.

    According to us folks at YEPME, as for wardrobe and garments, the
    movie is a treat for fashion lovers. Nargis as Heer is eye-candy
    material in her kurtas, skirts, or short dresses. Check out the
    skintight orange zip-up dress. But the look of the film belongs to the
    hero. On the campus, with his knitted vests and solid shirts, Ranbir
    looks convincingly uncool as the guy from a conservative family. But
    it’s his rockstar phase that shows him in interesting ensembles. Though
    in parts, he does go over-the-top with hippy locks, unusual headwear,
    and grungy pirate shirts. But otherwise with his blow-dried hair and
    stubble, Ranbir looks appealingly fashionable sporting ribbed jeans,
    funky t-shirts, short denim jackets and scarves. Be it the red-checked
    shirt paired with black pants or ripped blue jeans and white t-shirt
    topped off with a funky jacket, the guy rocks the fashion barometer in
    Rockstar.

  38. rockstar rocks specially ranbir....must watch once especially couples and music lovers will love it.4 star sure.

  39. rockstar is a great movie but i realise that after coming out of the hall .as it is really really tough to connect with the film . the youth age which loves mass film will feel it as boring .only some sections of people who are intelligent will love the film and the others will realise its a great movie after coming out of the hall like me

    ReplyDelete
  40. its a below average movie, i think Ranbir just did the movie because of the look that was given to him..., never expected such a bad script from Imtiaz Ali....the end seems as if they were just tired of making the movie and called off...

    ReplyDelete
  41. It is a very confusing movie with some great moments in first half

    ReplyDelete
  42. i didn't undertand wht happen in end........nargis died or not

  44. the movie rockstar is an aweosme movie , with each and every scene done with admirable effort, though the ending is kept uncertain which is to let people think about the movie. praise or criticize its their wish, the music is done in a superb fashion.

  46. guys,
    u ppl think it's nice movie, ah!
    wt u can say it's different from usual Bwood masala film, but dat's only not make it gr8 movie...
    it's so confusing, I dnt understand wt director trying to tell
    Critics says it's love story with some kind of psychic act...wt d heck, in whole movie Ranbeer trying 2 kiss her or want 2 sleep with her..
    U can c in one scene where after she sleeping with him, she run on street where ranbeer running behind her like chasing dog...it's too ridiculous
    where is true love there is no lust

    it’s inspired by English movie “A walk to remember”, but no where it’s touching it’s level

    just watch A walk to remember, Note book, if only & Sassy girl movies to understand art of telling love stories
    even some old Hindi movies I can mention here, but won’t think new generation will like to watch…..

    ReplyDelete
  47. All those, who told it is one time watch... pls watch it second time hoping that they will understand 2nd time.. The movie is way beyond the usual bollywood stuff.. It is a new level of experience.. editing is being done very nice...

    All i can say this movie is just like you are watching dream.. it is in bits.. but you connect in the end..

    ReplyDelete
  48. Do not rely on these review. Movie is great. I am not able to get this film get out of my mind. Music is awesome. The visual of nadaan parindey is amazing.... music is great. Film is definitely second to none. Mohit stands at par with any great singer of this industry.

  52. i strongly feel that there should b only 1 film industry in a country. Like Hollywood in USA,Bollywood in India. i hate all the regional language movies...tamil, telegu, bengali, punjabi, kannada etc..they should be banned.what say guys ?

    ReplyDelete
  53. a good movie with good acting from Ranbir especially the college scenes, Nargis looks amazing cute. Good music the party one and Nadaan Parinda... cool songs. mohit chauhan has a great voice..

    ReplyDelete
  54. A corny, pretentious and overlong movie. Tested my patience every moment. Imtiyaz Ali's fall from grace!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. one of the worst movies ever made...

    ReplyDelete
  56. In the movie Ranbir is told that you need a broken heart to become a rock star..... & I say to love this movie you need a heart.... I have watched it atleast 10 times... & everytime it's a great treat to heart & to ears... Definately not a movie for all.. but whoever for the people with passion & dreams... to those who thibk post half is confusing or not edited well... I think they don't know what a dream is like... It's there & it's not.. in bits & confusing.. but the feeling is always great.....

    ReplyDelete
  57. well I would Simply Give it a 1 Star of 5 ! the stories Been Really Weird ,guess not fully use of the Script ,in Simple they are Really Trying to Add Some Holly in to lolly ....And All Holly is MEANING LESS !

    ReplyDelete
  58. This movie sucks big time!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think the female characters: Nargish's character and that reporter's they lacked some reality character in them.. wasn't strong enough..u know when i watched it the first time I was turned off by the clueless feeling I got at the end ..the second time I watched after a long time..was because the memory of the first feeling I tried to search through...coz the music was so good..was never like typical bolly trendz also to mention the script and the screenplay was atypical and then just that some characters were irritatingly put forth//not enough or not correctly characterized for a strong feeling..i believe!!!@_@

  60. Yes he does die at the end. If you noticed, the poem in the beginning explained how they would eventually meet far away. That implies that they both die and meet in heaven.
