Rockstar (2011)

In Rockstar, watch the story of a guy in his journey of becoming a famous rock star and his struggle with life and love. 

Jordan is a young university student who likes to be a rock singer. He realises that something is missing in his songs; to touch the audience’s soul, he needs to have more experience in life and love and also go through some pain. He needs to mature emotionally to have more meaning in his songs. That’s why he goes after a love which will make him suffer and give him the pain he needs.

At that moment, he sees a girl in the university during a dance show, Heer (Nargis Fakhri) and he seems to like her at first sight. But when I was watching the movie, I wasn’t sure for a quite long time why Jordan was after her; just to experience the love and pain he needs or because he really likes her.

But then it becomes quite clear that Jordan and Heer shares a love which let them express themselves freely and be their best self. But unfortunately Heer is engaged and after her soul-searching, she can not leave her fiance so she puts some much effort to keep the relationship at friendship stage with Jordan.

Rockstar was nominated for many awards and won some of them: Ranbir Kapoor as best actor and A.R. Rahman won the award for the soundtrack.

I watched most of Ranbir Kapoor’s movies and I think he has a different style comparing other actors in Bollywood. In my opinion, he doesn’t fit in typical romantic comedies or usual dramas that well, but shines like a diamond in unusual, eccentric roles like Prem in “ Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani” or Jordan in “Rockstar”. Ranbir Kapoor seems to give Jordan a deep and complex character, even though you can’t understand him much or think he is right, you can’t really hate him.

The soundtrack is quite good (Well it won an award, didn’t it? :o) My favourite song is Hawaa Hawaa beside Tango for Taj and Tum Ko. It is directed by Imtiaz Ali, I really like his style.

When it finishes, the movie leaves you in a depressive, bitter mode. The last song, Tum Ho Paas Mere stabs your heart while the last couple of minutes summarize what happened between Heer and Jordan since they met until they part.

It’s a sad but a good movie, so highly recommended! :o)
