Rockstar would go down as Ranbir Kapoor’s best performance till date. Unfortunately the sentence is too true, Rockstar indeed did go down and sank amidst its confused plot line and dragging second half.

The good points have been agreed opun by all to be Ranbir and AR Rahman’s music. And some might even add newcomer Nargis Fakhri’s profile, but nothing else.

If not for the disjointed script, it had all ingredients to do well, for it was shot wonderfully well.

Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama wrote, “The problem with Rockstar is that it starts off most impressively, has some terrific moments in between, but the writing gets so erratic and incoherent as it heads towards the conclusion that you wonder, am I really watching an Imtiaz Ali film? What you take back from Rockstar are some terrific moments, a bravura performance (Ranbir Kapoor is a class apart!)and of course, AR Rahman’s musical score. Wish one could carry the entire film back in our hearts!,”

Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV.com said, “The film, nearly three hours long, traverses long physical distances – from Delhi to Kashmir and from there to Prague and then back again to Delhi as JJ follows his lady love (who gets married quickly enough and settles down to drab matrimony in faraway Czech Republic to make matters difficult) halfway around the world, singing and dancing his woes away. But despite all the frenetic movement in space that Rockstar offers, the film really goes nowehere. It feels strangely static.”

All felt that director Imtiaz Ali could have done better, what with the exemplary work by Ranbir, Rahman and cinematographers. The blend of music, emotion to the story is impeccable.

In the film Ranbir plays a Haryanvi two-sizes-too-tight jean-clad upstart who transforms into a musical genius seared by a love. His music takes on powerful measures and stirs the soul of listeners with pain and passion. Nargis Fakhri as the dainty delectable heartbreaker is a pleasure to watch, but her lack of experience and depth in acting is all too visible. One wishes she had broken Ranbir’s heart with more conviction!
