Bollywood and culture in an emerging India
So, basing an entire film in a milieu not many Indians would recognise is a risk in itself.
Then to cast a first time actor in the lead role, a television “bahu” in a crucial part and two former VJs to boot — you certainly have to credit director Abhishek “Gattu” Kapoor with a lot of nerve.
By the time the credits roll, you can praise him for a lot more.
“Rock On” revolves around a band named Magik. Friendship, love and marriage are all essential elements in the film and Kapoor renders them beautifully.
