Rock ON!

That’s a new record even for me – Welcome to Sajjanpur yesterday and Rock On today. Two entirely different generation of movies and both, simply superb. Like Laali said, welcome to sajjanpur has the malgudi days feel to it. The story is simple with many evocative messages . Shyam Benegal has successfully interwoven the myriad social issues of today – widow remarriage, politics, eunuchs etc with subtle humor. No low cut, obnoxiously clothed village women here, or too much singing dancing. The story holds its won for the two hours.

Rock On – I am in love all over again :). Farhan Akhtar fits into the rock star shoes effortlessly. Watching them all – Arjun Rampal, Purab and Kenny – took me back to school and college days when rock concerts and lead singers were gods. Of course, gods changed seasonally! Somehow the ‘magik’ group, reminded me of Strings. I am sure this may have been Farhan Akhtar’s second career choice if everything else had failed. By the end of it, I was cheering them from my seat and chewing my nails as Rampal made the choice between going back to perform or his job. Truly, I am smitten and for now, plan to go see it again with my sister.


About Namita

A melange of colors, just like the rainbow. Sometimes, as bright as the yellow sun, brimming with energy. Then driven by the passion of red to pursue my dreams. Calm like the clear blue skies and playful like streaks of violets. I am a collection of stories, each different and yet the same. I am simple in my complexities and something in my nothingness. For my bread and butter, I am a reflexologist – a profession which is more than just a job, it is my passion. When I am not busy in conversation with the feet, I potter around with my camera lens, indulge in good music and snuggle in with my books. And when my energies begin running low, nothing perks me more than traveling to unknown places, meeting all sorts of people and exchanging tall stories. I am a founding trustee of the Uday Public Charitable Trust that hopes to provide the gift of education to children of martyred soldiers and also other deserving children. It is a cause close to my heart. My gypsy heart cannot sit still and I must always move, explore…The mountains call out ever so often and I am off with my backpack. Trek, trek, trek…I want to push my limits always..rediscover my fears and move forward with my strengths. i love myself and my life, I must be god’s favorite child . With much to do and much to see, i am on the brink of another journey, always.

    Rock on is the movie I love to watch again and again, not because of the story but because the character seem so much informal and nextdoor guys that It never feel that we are seeing a movie, Thats the thing that I like about the movie most. and music is the soul of film
