Where is Magik? ‘Jaago’ from ‘Rock On 2’ is disappointing

Oh I still remember the day when I just couldn’t get enough of “Pichle Saat Dino Mein” and “Socha Hai”. I was waiting for the songs of “Rock On 2” with the same enthusiasm (even though I was disappointed with the teaser). And all I get was more disappointment. 

The song is about women empowerment and standing up for your rights, but what’s new in that. When I heard the first line of “Jaago”, it reminded me of the song “Jaago Zara Savera Ho Gaya” by the pop girl band Viva. And trust me there is nothing new from what they said back then. 

Farhan Akhtar, who plays the lead in the movie, took to microblogging website Twitter to share the video and tweeted: So happy to share our 1st song with you. #Jaago #RockOn2 #ReliveTheMagik #streeshakti bit.ly/Jaago_

“Jaago” has been crooned by Farhan and Siddharth Mahadevan. The song has been shot at the Gateway of India and seems like a concert held by the band Magik. The crowd and the band members (Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli and new member Shashank Arora) look all pumped up, but I am not sure if the song will do the same to the audience. 

Directed by Shujaat Saudagar, “Rock On 2” will also see Shraddha Kapoor joining the band. It will also see Prachi Desai reprising her role. The movie will hit the screens on November 11.
