A different tale, the story begins with Janardhan (ranbir) who hails from a middle class background in Delhi but dreams of becoming a rock star. As expected, his musical trysts lead him to insults. He realizes that the only way to get to the other side is through a heartbreak as many successful rock stars have painful past. He decides to woo Heer (nargis), the rich, unavailable, beautiful girl and go through the heartbreak. In this process, Janardhan becomes Jordan and reaches the heights but at the cost of losing his heart. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with a soulful storyline and while the presentation was appealing, the narrative was smooth but not engaging at all points. The dialogues were matured. The script was written well but the screenplay was average. Background score was very nice and all the songs were impressive. Cinematography was excellent. Editing was a bit jerky, during the second half. Costumes were stylish and trendy while the art department was natural. Ranbir Kapoor gives a rocker of performance and impresses. Nargis looks very pretty but she must work on her performance part. Shammi Kapoor was superb. Aditi was just okay. Kumud was very nice. Piyush was apt. The others did their bit as required.
As such, the film came in with a lot of hype and many expected it to be a heart squeezing tale. However, it isn't really as intense as was meant to be. While the first half is brilliant and has got very impressive moments, things begin to tumble during the second half. There were few logical loopholes and the climax is somewhat unexpected which could lead to mixed reactions from audience. At the box office, the openings will be high but it could turn out to be an above average grosser.
 Verdict: Not that rocking...
