Rockstar helped Ranbir Kapoor to establish himself as a Superstar. Passionate, intense and painful, Rockstar is everything that a youngster would like to watch in a movie. The movie narrates the rise of a rockstar and his eventual destruction, as his life is tangled between his own desire to be with someone, and the complexities that come along with love. If you are looking for a good cry, some intense heartbreak and mind-blowing music of A.R. Rahman, you cannot afford to miss this movie!
Highway is a unique movie which captured the remotest valleys of India. If you want to go on a tour but cannot afford one, then you should definitely watch Highway. Imtiaz Ali’s direction would take you to the lush green valleys of Kashmir, the far-away lands of Kinnaur and the farms of Punjab. The movie comes along with a great message, and you’d certainly feel a sense of freedom after watching the movie.
Tamasha failed to do good on the Box Office, as the storyline was not meant to appeal to masses. Ranbir Kapoor nailed the movie with his spunky role in first half and the monotonous character in the second half. Deepika Padukone put her heart and soul in the movie. If you have ever wanted to escape to a world of stories or wanted to know how an artist feels, Tamasha is your movie! Ranbir Kapoor’s character was on the verge of going crazy in the movie, but as an audience, we can all relate to that feeling. Tamasha’s characterization and depth allow you to stay hooked to the movie.
