Remember that scene from the Indian cinema which when released brought a revolution through its music? Well, yes you understood the cue quite well, we are discussing Rock On. As soon as the news broke out for its cast and then much of our surprise the trailer was released just the day after the news of its characters disclosure, it was stuck in our head.Once again, Rock On 2, Relive the Magik!
It was a déjà vu all over again as Rock On 2 teaser came out on Monday. The trailer establishes a scene where we see Farhan Akhtar is playing in front of vast audience and minutes after we see him rowing a boat on a placid lake. Music and water, the real two motifs of Rock On are shown present in Rock On 2. The cast, this time, has some new faces with the old ones .i.e. Farhan, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli and Prachi Desai are reprising their roles in Rock On 2.
So, who’s new in Rock On teaser? It is Shraddha Kapoor, this film’s reluctant yet talented musician and Shashank Arora, him of Titli fame. During the reel play of the teaser we can find Shraddha gets some play in the little over one-minute teaser, whereas the other new face, Shashank is shown performing only. Well, the question is will Farhan be the driving force behind pushing Shraddha to perform? Sure looks like it.
The song which plays as the teaser unleashes is the much loved Rock On.
And as Farhan tells his audience, Magik has not performed for many years and is only back for a reason and, as he says, “This. Is. It.” So, now with a mystery for all of us, none can predict what he actually meant by “It”. I know what you must be wondering now! You wish to know what else is new?
So here it is… the sequel has been shot in Shillong and also includes a folk song in Khassi. The music is expected to be more mature, just like its main cast. They have included instruments like keyboard and sarod and expect more matured writing. We leave you here with the trailer link to watch and decide.
