Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor-starrer ‘Rock On 2’ has hit the silver screens today. A sequel to 2008 release ‘Rock On’, the movie is the directorial debut of Shujaat Saudagar.
Besides retaining the original team of ‘Rock On’ Farhan Akhtar, Arjun rampal, Prachi Desai and Purab Kohli in the sequel, Shujaat has roped in two new characters in the cast – Shraddha Kapoor and Shashank Arora.
The director has made a commendable effort in reprising the ‘Magik’ of ‘Rock On’ as he maintained the original essence of the prequel.
Considering the popularity ‘Rock On’ had garnered, the hype around ‘Rock On 2’ is quite obvious with people having high hopes.
However, the movie seems to be affected largely because of the recent currency ban. Given that the ATMs have opened up today, after a gap of two days after the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes were announced, ‘Rock On 2’ is said to be have a slow start on the first day.
Now, let’s see how the audience has reacted on micro-blogging site Twitter after watching ‘Rock On2’ on big screen:

#RockOn2 opening in morning shows is a disaster. Shows are getting cancelled as well because of no audience.— Sumit kadel (@SumitkadeI) November 11, 2016
Going by the audience review so far, it seems that ‘Rock On 2’ has failed to impress people and is getting a mixed reaction. However, despite being a new member to the team, Shraddha Kapoor has managed to steal the show.
Notably, ‘Rock On 2’ is made with a budget of Rs 55 crores and is released on 1,700-plus screens across the country. However, considering the low response in the first show of the movie, recovering the cost of production might be an uphill task for the movie.
Only time will reveal if ‘Rock On 2’ be able to survive at the box office.
