Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Rockstar’ inspired by AR Rahman?

Unlike its predecessor Rock On!!, which had popular rock music, the soundtrack of Ranbir’s new film is more spiritual – in the Sufi and qawwali zone

The soundtrack of Ranbir Kapoor’s Rockstar is quite different from the kind of rock music we have been used to in Bollywood. Unlike London Dreams, Dev.D and Rock On, which were in the grunge and popular rock zone, AR Rahman’s music in this film is more spiritual. It is quite an unusual fusion of Sufi, qawwali and rock. No wonder the director deemed it fit to launch the music of his film at the Hazrat Nizamuddin durgah. Ranbir’s character is seen going through a spiritual as well a romantic journey, as he rises to fame as a rockstar. So the music he composes is intrinsically influenced by his transformation. Starting with the romantic Kattiya karoon as he falls in love with Nargis Fakhri, the music goes into rebellious mode with Sadda haq aethe rakh and then into the Sufi zone as the film progresses. We’ll have to wait to see if a young actor like Ranbir is capable of carrying off the kind of graph this character needs to go through. He plays a simple young man who sets off on a musical journey after hitting a low point in his life. One thing that we were wondering about was that except for the love story portion, the character’s musical journey seems quite inspired by the life of the film’s music composer, AR Rahman. Rahman too had risen to fame after turning to Sufism. Maybe Ranbir did take a few tips from the great composer while preparing for the role!
