Ranbir Kapoor’s musical film Rockstar releases October 11, 2011. Here’s a lowdown about the film:
This is the story of Janardhan Jakhar, a boy-next-door who harbours the ambition of being a rockstar a la his idol, Jim Morrison. He is from a humble background, but that doesn’t stop him from chasing his dream of making it big in the musical world. Thanks to his ignorance and silly attitudes, all he gets is ridicule and humiliation from everyone. Just when he is about to give up, his mentor (a professor) advises him that all musical stars – all artistes, in fact – have one thing in common: tragedy. They have all suffered painful heartbreaks that, in part, make them what they are. Janardhan picks up that single keyword: heartbreak. To get to that state of being, he needs to fall in love. For that, he chooses Heer Kaul, who is the undisputed diva of the college campus, beautiful, talented, arrogant, rich and unavailable. Hoping that she will break his heart, he sets out to woo Heer. Rockstar is the journey of a boy who leaves behind his identity as Janardhan the yokel to become Jordan the rockstar. The story captures the essence of his journey of soul-searching, his rise to fame and his self-destruction… all of which comes at a price.
