Rockstar, directed by Imtiaz Ali stars Nargis Fakhri and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. The film begins well with very interesting fun filled moments. Rockstar is able to immediately connect with the audience as the scene shifts between the past and the present.

Life in a typical Delhi college and the scenic beauty of Kashmir has been beautifully captured on screen. Youngsters and even the older lot will be able to relate to many sequences in Rockstar when the protagonist played by Ranbir Kapoor goes out on secret excursions with his college mate Heer played by Nargis Fakhri. Heer is getting married and wants to do a lot of crazy stuff before that. That includes drinking desi alcohol, watching B-grade porn in a small theatre and so on. The spark and innocence of the youth is extremely well depicted and executed perfectly well.

However, the second half gets a little monotonous and the narration becomes a little weak. Another drawback in Rockstar is the 'realism' part. Many sequences in the film are hard to believe and one cannot help but opine that Imtiaz could have dealt with it more realistically. The scene between Ranbir and Shammi Kapoor is very nice to watch, apart from many other light moments.
