Directed by none other than celebrated Indian filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, Rockstar is a rare gem of a movie. It has its scenes of romance, but the movie is more than a simple love story. You can't help but empathise with the naive Janardan and then the tortured Jordan. The movie beautifully captures a spectrum of human emotions, from the throes of passion to pain, loss and destruction.
