Rockstar Review - Sadda Haq, DeliveredNov 11, 2011NewsImtiaz Ali has dared. And with Rockstar his new film that is greedily ambitious, extraordinarily grand, his directorial prowess is lavishly on display where he subscribes to a thoroughly engaging narrative structure which so effortlessly strides back and forth, you are willingly rolled in a labyrinth of a delicious cinematic spread.Ranbir Kapoors Jannardhan Jakkar (later Jordan) is a striving musician and wants to model himself on the lines of Jim Morrisson. He is more a local bore with abundant musical talent, which is largely unnoticed. A probable mentor, the caf owner which JJ frequents along with his freeloading cronies conveys to him that he cannot breakthrough until he goes through a painfully dramatic time in his life, and he, so far, has been far from it. Positive that the college hottie is a surefire heartbreaker which will ultimately lead him to agonizing pain, bound to inspire music, JJ gives her a shot only to miserably goof-up. But in all his buffoonery, the pair strikes an unlikely camaraderie which has life-altering implications. So the film essentially is a pensive musical romance, which buffers into epic proportions that jeopardizes more than each of them could foresee. Jordan is not the predictable rebel hell-bent to protest, but he is out there to blast all conventions without intentionally aiming to do so. He is uncomfortably frank and uninhibitedly spontaneous, something he amusingly shares with Heer. The first half is unabashed fun infused with humor, surrounded by effectively believable characters, and harmonized with Rahmans inspiring music. The screenplay is nearly pitch-perfect, it rapidly cuts along, charming with its wit, and sublime photography. The other half concentrates on Jordans fluctuating music career that interjects between a firecracker album, court cases, jail visits, media-bashing, and an unstable relationship which is undefined yet affecting. After a point, the picture isnt strict on telling a romantic tale but swims beyond thoughtfully in confronting the expansive void in each of us, which can only possibly be contained with someone who you truly desire, more than what you really desire. Ranbir Kapoor is phenomenal. His unerring expressions convey the mental assault while the incredibly well-written lines express the overflowing aggression. The actor surpasses all expectations, and attacks like a starving beast, claiming his throne as the youngest rockstar-superstar. Predictably, he is the frontrunner for all the acting awards,Ankur Pathak Rockstar Review - Sadda Haq, Delivered Nov 11, 2011
