Rockstar: Box-Office Expectations

The expectations for Rockstar are huge. Firstly because it’s an Imtiaz Ali film. Director Imtiaz has become a household name after Jab We Met and Love Aaj Kal. Secondly, actor Ranbir Kapoor is a heartthrob and a top star. The third reason is the super-hit music by A.R. Rahman. Therefore, Rockstar should take a flying start at the box-office.

Rockstar: Star Cast

Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri, Shammi Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kumud Mishra, Piyush Mishra & Shernaz Patel.

Rockstar: Plot

Janardan (Ranbir Kapoor), born and brought up in the very middle class locality ofPitampura in Delhi, has a larger than life dream – of being a rockstar like Jim Morrison! But all he gets from his reluctant audience is ridicule and humiliation. He’s at his wit’s end, when he realises that all musical stars, all artists in fact, have one thing in common: tragedy. They all have tragic lives. They have all suffered painful heartbreaks to become what they are. Alas, there is no pain in Janardan’s life – it is an oasis of peace. Unless he does something drastic, he will never become a rockstar. Heer Kaul is the undisputed diva of the college campus – beautiful, talented, arrogant, rich, unavailable. She has broken many hearts… Janardan hopes she will break his heart too. He sets out to woo Heer with the sole object of getting his heart broken. Rockstar is the journey of a boy who leaves behind Janardan to become Jordan, who traverses the highs and lows of life – from simple naivete to tortured soul, from the pleasure of unaffected friendship to the torment of unrequited love, from the campus in Delhi to the international stage… He ultimately gets all that his heart has ever desired… but in the process shatters/loses his heart forever…

Rockstar: Release Date

Rockstar releases on 11th November 2011.

    Hi Komal,
    Rockstar will definitely take a flying start .. what I fear most is it may not communicate the message or the intent with the single screen audience .. that is i think that it still lacks the mass link .. A.R’s music is outstanding and he is at his best .. but still if you compare with dhinka-chika and all… you dont find these songs as popular as dhinka-chika … Having said all … Rockstar is going to be a film that is worth watching and I loved all songs … very much
