STORY: Farhan Akhtar plays a role of Aditya seeks reclamation. A freak circumstance upsets him deeply. Unable to leave, he steps to Meghalaya for some self-questioning and merges himself in humane causes. Back in Mumbai, Joe a role played by Arjun Rampal now owns a luxurious club and judges a reality program. He is rich but dull by succumbing to commonness. KD, role played by Purab Kohli still hopes to reunify with the two once again and make music one day.
REVIEW: While most sequences are different from the original, credit goes to Shujaat Saudagar for exhibiting a new part in the hearts of the members of ‘Magik’, the Rock band that captured our fancy eight years ago. The band musical drama swinged the aficionados of Hindi film songs, attracting them to rock music. Abhishek Kapoor’s new take on friendship pulled at your heartstrings with its easy storytelling and legit fights between characters and in themselves. He didn’t say you what you should be feeling about the combatant, allowing you to describe their capabilities and definite personalities. Thus, you could disclose to a Joe Mascarenhas, who is forced to adjust on his values and sensibilities to assure he puts food on the table.
Also, the script is a major misfortune. It is way too unnatural, directionless and depressed to hold your enthusiasm. With no strong clash point to hold it all together, the story goes flipped. The description tries too hard to form your feelings and spoon-feed sentiments by explaining the unexpressed thoughts of the characters, stripping you the comfort of finding it for yourself. The music is shockingly powerless. Except the Usha Uthup track, it is not a bit on the former’s ideal tracks.
Having aforesaid that, we are still open to a third part, provided Magik finds a genuine reason to rejoin. After all, melody needs to come from the soul for you to feel it.
