Starring Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, PurabKohli, Shashank Arora are in the lead role in film. Rock On-2 is the sequel to the 2008 Rock On. Shankar Ehsaan and Loy composed music in the film. The album of film consist total 8 songs. Rock On-2 is considered as a musical drama. In comparison to Rock on expectations were very high for the soundtracks offered in this film. Unlike Hollywood music there is no restrictions on the singers but in India a singer has to make music under the boundaries of restrictionswhere they have to also look whether music is marketable or not hence, Shankar Ehsaan and Loy found themselves somewhere in the same situation in Rock On- 2.
Jiah (Shraddha Kapoor) joins Aditya (Farhan Akhtar) rock band in Rock On2 as a lead vocalist with 4 members including Joe (Arjun Rampal), Kedar (PurabKohli) and came up with some rock music. Which is quite different from the prequel i.e. Rock on. Singers were a lot times bogged down because of the limitations for the rock music, so film was not much successful in delivering the best music, and the sequel was not the best as Rock On. Director and music director although worked a lot on Shraddha Kapoor’s voice as she was the lead female vocalist in the film. One can clearly see how the film album loosens up in the songs where Farhan and Shraddha were not featured. 8 years ago Rock on made a hit on blockbuster with its impressive songs and lyrics that spoke about the drama, love, generation, chasing dreams, like the Sinbad sailor.
There is one of the best things about Rock On-2 in comparison to earlier film are that it is a professional job done by whole team. The storytelling format is straightforward and if in case one faces any problem in understanding the film here is the solution with the KD’s voice over which made easy to understand the story. Moreover, many dialogs of film really gave a shot to the young generation to move ahead and follow their dreams. Therefore, according to the shots Shankar and Loy tried their best to give a fantastic music.
It is clearly visible in the film that there are little pressure here and there with the music and acting. The film is all about chasing your dreams no matter what they are. Moreover, it mainly focused on the rock band musicians where all 5 of them are struggling with their life and how they move ahead to full fill their dreams.
Although music, which is, used in Rock On-2 I more over like a cosmetic creation and singers were afraid to do anything new which did not helped film to stand up on a box office. However, it is a one-time watch film, which cost no harm to your pocket.
