Anurag Kashyap reviews Rockstar
Anurag Kashyap loved Rockstar. The director found the film soul stirring and Imtiaz Ali's best work so far.
He tweeted: 'Rockstar is easily Imtiaz Ali's best. This is how a love story should be told. Soul stirring . Still assimilating. Rockstar is unlike most films.. no cacophony of sounds.. quiet.. no unnecessary background to propel it forward..Ranbir is just awesome. Rockstar is not so much about rock as it is an individuals story..its another kind of coming of age film.. just can't get it out of my head.'
Also, he pointed out that the film is based on famous story of Heer-Ranjha. 'Not a single review of Rockstar has caught on that its actually an adaptation of Heer Ranjha..not one,' he added.
Bipasha Basu was happy with Ranbir Kapoor's acting as well. 'Ranbir Kapoor as Jordan,U have to fall in love with him!Imtiaz Ali is an outstanding filmmaker! Nargis is breathtakingly beautiful! Who would not want to be loved the way Jordan loves:) Aki nirula the stylist of the film, a dear friend has also excelled himself!N the music visuals n mohit chauhan's voice a treat! Go and watch Rockstar guys!'
