About Rock on!!

Rock On !! is a 2008 Indian rock musical film written and directed by Abhishek Kapoor, produced by Farhan Akhtar, and with music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Arjun Rampal, Farhan Akhtar, Luke Kenny, and Purab Kohli star as members of the Mumbai-based grunge rock band, "Magik" (formed in 1998) who reunite in 2008.

The winner of seven Filmfare awards, Rock On was critically acclaimed but had an average performance at the box office. The cast of Rock On was featured on the cover of the September 2008 issue of Rolling Stone (India). Its screenplay has also been added to the Academy Film Archive.

Rock On begins in Mumbai, with the rock band "Magik" in 1998. Aditya Shroff (Farhan Akhtar) is the lead singer who rebelled against his well to-do family to play music. Joseph (Joe) Mascarhenas (Arjun Rampal) is the lead guitarist who feels he has to prove his worth as a musician. Rob Nancy (Luke Kenny) and Kedar Zaveri or KD/"Killer Drummer" (Purab Kohli) comprise the remainder of the band. They are in their early twenties, young, wild and carefree, and only think about succeeding in the music business. After a competition is announced, specifically for Indian rock bands, to be organised by Channel V, they decide to enter it as the winner will be offered a contract for an album and at least one music video.

While they win the competition, they must make a number of compromises when signing the contract. This creates tension within the band. Joe feels the most slighted as his song is not included (making way for a remix of a random wedding song to capitalise on the upcoming "wedding season"). In addition, his girlfriend, Debbie (Shahana Goswami), an aspiring fashion designer, is rejected as the band's stylist. Later, when the cameramen focus solely on Aditya during the filming of the music video, Joe becomes furious and lashes out at Aditya before marching out of the studio with Debbie. Aditya, who had failed to notice anything was amiss, is shocked and decides to leave as well. He packs his stuff, writes a note breaking up with his girlfriend Tania (Nicolette Bird), and leaves for Delhi. "Magik" thus disbands and its members, once the closest of friends, become estranged from each other.

Ten years later, the four meet again through a series of coincidences. Aditya is now a high-powered executive with an investment banking firm. He has become cold and unfeeling. His wife Sakshi (Prachi Desai) feels hurt and confused by his behavior. Hoping to make him happy, she decides to plan a party for his birthday. While buying a watch, K.D. (who is now working for his father's jewellery business) overhears Sakshi talking about Aditya and wonders if it is his now estranged friend. He introduces himself and leaves his name with her. Sakshi later conveys the meeting to Aditya who denies knowing K.D. When Sakshi finds a box filled with "Magik" photos, she realizes Aditya was lying and invites K.D. to the birthday party.

K.D. meets up with Rob (who now makes a living composing jingles for advertisements) and they go together to invite Joe. Joe is largely unemployed, performing occasionally at weddings. He has an eight-year-old son, and the family is largely supported by Debbie, whom he has married, and who runs his family's fish business. Debbie (who still holds a grudge against the band for what she perceives as their ill-treatment of Joe) sends K.D. and Rob away and discourages Joe from staying in touch with them.
