Performances :Farhan Akhtar as Adi has given an Mediocre performance. He is in a very gloomy state in the whole movie.
Arjun Rampal looks hot and smart
Purab Kohli ad K,.D has nothing new to offer
Shraddha Kapoor as Jiah seems totally lost in the movie ,
Shashank Arora , kUmud Mishra And Prachi Desai are all wasted
Scriipt and Director Review : After success of Rock On there were lots of expectations from the sequel but all expectations are wasted . The script lacks any substance . It goes haywire . The movie is dragging and slow with many scenes gone terribly wrong . Abhishek Kapoor who had directed rock on was replaced by debut director Sujaat but he has made the movie direction less with a haywire script . Even the Music by Shankar Ahsaan Loy is not impressive which shold have been as it beind a music based movie .
Final Words : Rock on 2 movie and its Music fails to leave a mark . Its a very gloomy film
