ROCKSTAR does not live up to the confidence and expectations from the otherwise very skilled and accomplished film-maker Imtiaz Ali.
Bollywood Hungama
It's been a drought of good films at the cinemas.

Rockstar has a Sufi soul. If only it had been set free and allowed to go the whole hog!
As the end credits roll, you walk out with an invisible bandana endorsing the mega Kapoor humming a verse from a song by his alter ego's idol:

When The Doors had their first ever professional photographs taken, to go with their incendiary 1967 debut, frontman James Douglas Morrison consciously chose to leave the smiling out of it.

R Rehman and even spectacular acting by Ranbir Kapoor is what makes this film watchable.

Bollywood Mantra
Rockstar has an interesting beginning, devoid of the typical filmi introductions. There is no heroic, dramatic entry of the lead protagonist, aided by slick cuts set to an even more dramatic background score.

You could skip it!

The dialogues are refreshingly rustic and funny. An extra star in the rating for Ranbir's performance. (IANS)

Rockstar will be loved by one section of the audience – mainly the youth in the multiplexes. But there will also be a section – mainly the single-screen audience, masses and small-centre audience – which will find the drama dark and depressing.

Imtiaz Ali has proved it once again with ‘’Rockstar’’ after the success of ‘’Jab We Met’’ and ‘Luv Aaj Kal’’. This may be the movie of the year. This movie going to be a mile stone in Ranbir’s career....

On the whole, Imtiaz Ali deserves a big applause, both for writing the script and brilliantly directing it

Rockstar may not be one of the finest attempts but is definitely worth a watch for its pleasing first half and the ace performance of Ranbir Kapoor.

Rockstar is one of those films that surpass the regular fare offered at the cinema each week, as each performer here has given their all and have come up with a grand and operatic film that proves a risky gamble for winning people over but it just works h
Bolly Spice
Frankly, 'Rockstar' had all the right elements to be a classic, something that it indeed seemed like at a structural level. The story is about a young singer/performer Ranbir - who belongs to nowhere and isn't even aware about his talent till someone plays a great gamble by betting on him before he turns into a huge star. In fact this basic pretext is something which if nurtured further could have been an altogether different experience (with a different story) being told because Imtiaz Ali goes all out in establishing a character who gets into a self destructive mode.

All the Rumi quotations of the world cannot provide either.

After giving hits like 'Jab We Met' and 'Love Aaj Kal', the very young director Imtiaz Ali was all set for his fourth directorial project 'Rockstar', starring none other than but the young heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor. Matching the film title, Imtiaz has take
