It seldom happens that Big B tweets about the music of a film but he did tweet about the music of ROCKSTAR, and there could not have been a better complement for all those who have been associated with music of ROCKSTAR, in particular music director Rahman and lead male voice Mohit Chauhan. Big B tweeted that "It is difficult to grow to Rahman, but have been hooked for the day after growing to ROCKSTAR."

Indeed, it is after a really long time that music of ROCKSTAR, after the fans have seen it for the first time, are getting back to the cinema hall to soak into the musical ambience, driven by the high quality acoustic sound systems that the multiplexes are endowed with, to enjoy being the surreal audience of the concert of ROCKSTAR as it pans out on the screen.

ROCKSTAR is also one of the few films in the recent memory which has an element of romance as the binding motif, but it does not have a romantic duet as a binding element. Running around trees has been there but not by singing a duet, and could this also be one of the reasons, why the music of ROCKSTAR has become such a roaring hit? The measure of its success can be gauged from the fact that popular websites that have emerged as one of the prominent e-commerce sites in the country are selling ROCKSTAR music and it is selling like hot cakes.

ROCKSTAR also marks return of Kavita Krishnamurthy aka Subramanian to song singing after a really long time and 'Tum Ko' is a gem of a song. The song, which is worth mentioning in the whole album, however is, 'Nadaan Parinde'. If one hears 'Nadaan Parinde' from beginning the opening nodes remind one of the opening nodes of the famous BoneyM Song, "By the Rivers of Babylon", the similarity however is till the octave shifts, it again gains the magical touch. The play of electronic guitar in the song is amazing and it really brings about the passion and ignites the urge to come back home. However, in the whole set up there is one jarring note, when Ranbir Kapoor is playing electronic guitar, how is it that he continues to show his wizardry without plugging to a power safe?

The rendition of the antaras in between by Mohit Chauhan underlines his control of the vocal chords, as he does not allow the voice to modulate in the dohas that he sings khaio Maas". In the same manner, 'Sheher mein hoon' reminds one of 'Dooba Dooba', but the sudden break of the song with a sharp cut makes it zany. Same is the manner of rendition of 'Jo Bhi main kehna chahoon', where the innuendo "Ya ya ya", has become an emphatic tone of the song.

ROCKSTAR indeed raises aspirations of scores of music bands of the country to continue to aspire and pursue their career in music with zeal and commitment. May be an encore from Rahman is in offering.
