Rock On 2 song Rock On Revisited: Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, SEL recreate impressive new version of cult song (Watch video)
We like the twist given to the famous guitar riff of Rock On in Rock On Revisited and the new added beat! Shraddha Kapoor teams up well as a singer with Farhan Akhtar.
The Rock On 2 song Rock On Revisited is just out and we like the new version, although not as much as the older one. One had the chance to listen to the songs of Rock On 2 exclusive and live at the music concert organised by the makers for fans at the NSCI Dome in Worli, Mumbai. Listening to it live, too, we felt that the Rock On Revisited song was good. The original version had only Farhan Akhtar‘s voice – then raw and absolutely new for Bollywood fans – and so it has stayed on in our minds and hearts. And no, Farhan Akhtar is joined by actress Shraddha Kapoor, who also stars in the movie as a new band member of Magik, in singing the Rock On Revisited song.
Frankly, the introduction of a female raw voice for the Rock On 2 title song works for us! Rock On Revisited is as raw and fresh as the Rock On title song original version, both composed by the musical geniuses Shankar Ehsaan Loy (comprising Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonca). The lyrics of both songs are penned by the great writer-poet Javed Akhtar, the father of Farhan Akhtar. We certainly like the twist given to the famous guitar riff of Rock On in Rock On Revisited and the new added beat by Shankar Ehsaan Loy! The music composer trio told India.com exclusively that they have decided to give a new sound to Rock On 2, fusing the soft rock with other genres. Well, it’s working in some songs!
Shraddha Kapoor has sung another full song in Rock On 2. Belonging to a family related to actors and music maestros, the pretty actress made her singing debut in her film Ek Villainwhere she sung Galliyan Unplugged that was much appreciated. We think Shraddha Kapoor is gonna rock Rock On 2!
Rock On Revisited the song has also experimented with the visuals in the music video. But some people may prefer the original 2008 one! Watch the two songs here – Rock On Revisited and Rock On – and let us know which one you like better!
