Rockstar | Indy Week


Rated NR 160 min. 2011

Jordan (Ranbir Kapoor) an aspiring rocker, seeks the angst and swagger that will mold him into the image of his idol, The Doors' Jim Morrison. He pursues Heer (Nargis Fakhri), the college hottie, although her marriage is already arranged. Ranbir resembles the world's sexiest engineering student and he rips into his character with gusto, aided by Aki Narula's cool costumes, leather jacket, layered shirts and billowing harem pants. Nargis plays saucy well enough but is bereft of the skill for the emotional heavy lifting later on. Written and directed by Imtiaz Ali (Jab We Met), the film entertains most of the way, but like all these rags-to-riches show biz stories, the last quarter is a drag. If you leave after "Sadda Haq," the rebellious Morrison-like roar written by A R Rahman and sung passionately by Mohit Chauhan, you'll be ahead of the game.
