This Friday, Rock On 2, a sequel to 2008 film Rock On, is releasing. Apart from the old cast Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli, the new film has fresh faces as well in the form of Shraddha Kapoor and Shashank Arora. While the sequel’s announcement was positively received by the audiences, the trailers and songs of the film have not created much buzz or excitement for the film.
The music has failed to entice people and there seems a little motivation for its story. But, Rock On has a good reputation which might help the sequel. The film is expected to collect around 5 crore on its opening day. If the reviews and word of mouth are positive, then the earnings can also rise but otherwise, its difficult for the film to get more than 5 crore.
Farhan Akhtar has a decent fan following and is also a credible actor and Shraddha Kapoor, too has an immense following which can attract the crowd to shows. Diwali releases Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will also be there with reduced screen counts but if Rock On 2 doesn’t click, these films will have advantage.
Chaar Sahibzaade – Rise of Banda Singh Bahadur and Dongri Ka Raja are also releasing this Friday. The former will mostly see a good response in the North region and the latter won’t have much shows to make a big impact.
