Rock On

Farhan Akhtar’s foray in the vocalist world. This is definitely a new foray by Bollywood in new-age college rock type of music that is sure to have the college youth of India hooked. This is the first time that anyone in India has dared introduce rock music into Bollywood films, let alone make an entire film on a rock band.

The musical stalwarts of Dil Chahta Hai fame seem to have come out with another chart buster. Their passion for doing something different and pulling it off marvelously shows how much skill and musical depth the trio possess. Farhan Akhtar is a bit edgy in Pichhle Saat Dino and Rock On tracks but I guess if you had a seasoned singer singing the song, then you would lose the effect of an up-coming rock college rock band. Also, listening to the songs you come to know why Javed Akhtar is one of the best and highly acclaimed lyricists. Altogether this album is worth the moolah you shell out. However, if you never heard rock music in college and think of Pink Floyd, RHCP, Nirvana, Linkin’ Park as weird/obscure names, then this album is not for you.

The songs in this album reminded me of my college days where every college fest was incomplete with a rock show!
