Ranbir Kapoor falls for newcomer Nargis in “Rockstar.”

Shammi Kapoor makes his last appearance in “Rockstar.”

“Rockstar” Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Pakhri, Shammi Kapoor, Kumud Mishra, Piyush Mishra, Aditi Rao, Shernaz Patel; directed by Imtiaz Ali; music by A.R. Rahman.

Expectations are high from the director of “Jab We Met” and “Love Aaj Kal.” Ranbir Kapoor stars as Janardan, a simple, middle class boy from a Delhi family with larger than life dreams, to be a rockstar like Jim Morrison. He realizes that all artists have one thing in common, tragedy and painful heartbreak, which he lacks. He meets Heer Kaul, played by debutante Nargis Pakhri, the college diva. She’s beautiful, talented, arrogant and has broken many hearts. Janardan pursues Heer with the object of getting his heart broken to unleash the musician he strives to be, but at what price? Kumud Mishra is Khatana, Janardan’s loyal friend through good times and bad. Shammi Kapoor makes his final screen appearance as Ustad, the first to recognize Janardan’s unique talent. Aditi Rao plays Sheena, a journalist, who follows his rise to fame. “Rockstar” is the journey of a boy who changes from geeky Janardan to charismatic Jordan as he reaches the international stage. Much of the shooting took place on location in Kashmir. The makers say maestro A.R. Rahman's ability to join modern rhythms with the traditional sounds of classical and folk music will take the listeners on melodious journey.
