Rock On!

Farhan Akhtar lives up to his name! What an amazing movie... a simple tale, but the music, the passion portrayed by all the actors, mind blowing!! Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy have outdone themselves! What music, the guitar in particular, of course with the Greek God Arjun Rampal in the visuals with the guitar, who can resist that! Also the actress who plays Debbie, I guess it Shabana Goswami! She's my favorite as far as the girls in the movie go.

I just cant stop swaying to Tum Ho Toh.. beautiful song. Great singing, acting and writing by Farhaan. But I must say, I was most impressed by Arjun Rampal in this movie. In a subtle way, he has "taken over" from the entire band. Although "Magik mein koi take over nahi karta" :)

Sindbad the Sailor.. my favorite track.. The best part about it is the way it fit into the story of the movie.. the words sound like some random lyrics put together.. but it really makes sense in the flow of the story!

Farhaan has a long way to go in terms of being a singer, but as a director, actor, and writer, he scores a perfect 10.

Theres yet another thing which struck me while watching the movie. Whats with Investment Bankers and creativity? I mean Chetan Bhagat, Ravi Subramnian and now "Aditya Shroff". Extremely creative people, toiling away in the bank all day, and then moon-lighting as movie writers, authors and musicians! I hope some of my investment banker friends read this and move on to better things .. hehe..
