Direction, music, and screenplay:
The direction looks amazing by Shujaat Saudagar but still there are few loopholes. The music is astounding but in comparison to Rock On, it is not up to that level. I am already amazed by the brilliant cinematography by Marc Koninckx. In acting, Farhan, Purab Kohli, Arjun Rampal has delivered their best but Shraddha didn’t surprise in a big way. Shashank Arora did his best as a new entry in Rock On 2 group.
The last word:
This flick is for music aficionados and goes for it if you really loved Rock On!!
