Finally the big day has arrived. With four Hindi films at the box office this week , all eyes are on 'RockOn' for the obvious buzz it has created. The surprising fact is that the most awaited film of the year doesn't feature a 'Khan','Kapoor'or 'Kumar' . All that hype with relatively new actors and a director whose previous film 'Aryan' was a wash out.
