Rock on 2 Review:

The Rock on franchise, as expected made buzz in Bollywood with it’s sequel news but was received poorly by critics and audience when the first trailer and teasers made their way onto Youtube. Then the songs were released and this time, except one song or two, almost all the music numbers were made commercial and for a movie that chooses Rock music as it’s genre, the music was very blunt and was commercialized to stay on the safe side. To bring back the nostalgia, the marketing team made a brilliant decision of remaking the original Rock on!! song which backfired huge. Amidst all the negative feedback, Rock on 2 was released in limited theaters and will be a weekend watch for everyone as there are no other movies releasing this week except Ishq Junoon and Saansein, both which should be kept as far as possible from audience.

Rock on 2 story:

After the death of Rob Nancy, Magik continues it’s voyage as a rock band with replacements for pianist and the story of Rock on 2 takes place 8 years after Rock on!!.
