‘Rock On 2!!’ teaser out. Has ‘Magik’ lost its touch?

“Rock On!!” was a movie very close to my heart. I went to watch it with my friends and was so inspired by it. So, I was eagerly waiting for the sequel of the movie. Honestly, I was super impressed with the posters and I thought ‘Magik’ is indeed back. But the teaser that went online today left me disappointed. 

“Rock On!!”, which released in 2008, saw four friends, played by Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli and Luke Kenny, form a rock band called ‘Magik’. The movie revolved around Magik, how these friends form the rock band, part ways due to their differences, but reunite again later. 

The second instalment picks up from where the first movie ended. It also shows their new members Shraddha Kapoor and Shashank Arora. The teaser shows everything the movie is about – love, friendship, betrayal and music.

However, it seems Magik has lost its touch this time. Shraddha’s voice doesn’t fit in the reprised version of the title track. Moreover, I feel they have given her too much focus in the teaser. May be because she is the new voice of Magik. But the teaser looked more about her than about the band and their journey. 

Farhan shared the teaser on microblogging website Twitter and wrote: Here we go ..!! 🤘🏽😎🤘🏽 #ReliveTheMagik #RockOn2Teaser. bit.ly/RockOn2Teaser

“Rock On 2!!” also Prachi Desai. Directed by Shujaat Saudagar, it will hit the screens on November 11. 

Let me know your views on the teaser.
