Rockstar(2011) Music Review: (My opinion for my friends)

Let me start with the definition of Rockstar :  

 

rock star - a famous singer of rock music. rock 'n' roll musician, rocker - a performer or composer or fan of rock music. singer, vocalist, vocalizer

So expectation is that the soundtrack will feature some "good Rock Music" and when the composer is Grammy award winning A.R.Rehman expectation are always high.

Unfortunately this album fails as Rock part is just average.

Another negative is the selection of Mohit Chauhan for majority of songs

Being a fan or Mr Rehman i gave it a decent 3-4 hearing to be fair from my side.

If you follow rock music you can easily identify there are only 2 songs which can be categorized as 'rock'

Sadda Haq and Naadan Parindey

Good : Sadda Haq,Katiya Karun (ting-a-ling),Aur Ho,Naadan Parindey

Average : Jo Bhi Main(there is so much Ye-ye-ye in this song that it becomes irritating),Tum Ho,Kun Faaya Ku

Bad: Phir Se Ud Chala,Sheher Main,Hawaa-Hawaa,Tum Ko

Then there are 3 instrumentals which might sound really good when played in the movie

This is an album which might become a big hit but this ain't no 'Rock On' - Do not expect 'Rocking' from Rockstar.(Rating : 2.5/5) 

Two-thumbs-down

Agneepath (2012) - Movie Review (Its a remake - not a ripoff Rating : 4/5)

Original Agneepath(1990) in which Big B played Vijay Dinanath Chauhan and Danny Denzongpa as Kancha Cheena is considered a cult revenge movie.Big B also won a national award for the same. Remaking a movie which was famous for award winning performances and solid dialogues was much of a dare - but Karan Johar produced and Karan malhotra directed Agneepath (2012) does not dissapoint at all.First things first : Its a remake - not a ripoff - and that works bigtime in favor of the movie. Story is same but the treatment is way different and that makes sure that comparison does not spoil anything.Hrithik as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan - Outstanding in one word - every scene he has done shows that he has lived the character and he did not need much dialogues as his expressions and eyes do all the talking - his character is all raw no style and only focused on avenging his father's death. If anyone would have done justice to Vijay Chauhan it is Hrithik. Rishi Kapoor as Rauf Lala : Once bollywood&…
