This one is a wee bit different. The music sounds more contemporary and fusion ,East blends West, the direction is both subtle and at times flamboyant, and the acting is notches above the average dance round the tree, laugh like a idiot fare.
Rock Star is the tale of a college dropout (aint they all!) called Jordan / by Ranbir Kapoor musical prodigy who battles personal demons, lady luck , lady love (in the impossible pout of the American fashion model ,Nargis F), and his own musical ambitions. The breathtaking art moves from Kashmir, Prague, Europe and the streets of Delhi University. This one is a taker, breaker, soul shaker. Try getting a sub titled DVD if you dont know Hindi, or atleast dekko some songs streaming free at http://www.saavn.com/search/hindi/album%20Rockstar
Imitiaz Ali http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imtiaz_Ali_(director) does all olde Hindu College alumni proud (including this reviewer)
