Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar - Movie review

Movie Name: Rockstar
Director: Imtiaz Ali
Overall Rating - Very good if you are sick are tired of Mindless Masala movies

Saw the movie at Odeon, Manchester on 12th Nov, 2011.

Plus Points:

1. Imtiaz Ali's approach to the movie.... It is simple, journey based, experience based.... didn't try to find an end to story....
2. Lyricist - Irshad Kamil - was wonderful... less dialogues... Ranbir's emotions are mostly conveyed through Lyrics.... he has contributed immensely.
3. Music - What to say.... another masterpiece from Rahman
4. Ranbir Kapoor - Acted really well... emoted very well.... would have been really good if he had moved his left hand while playing Guitar.... as he claimed that he learnt playing Guitar for acting in this movie.

Minus Points:

1. Nargis - She looks good but doesn't look like a common girl... more from rich and famous attitude... hence, the problem.... or the lack while emoting...
2. Screenplay - lacked coherence like.... where he learnt guitar classes, who was his musical mentor etc etc...

Favourite Scenes....

1. Plenty... like Samosa in pain scene, tearing the contract, signal scene bwn Ranbir & his manager, Caravan scene bwn Ranbir & Aditi Rao....
