The film follows Som (Yatharth Ratnum), a hill-town boy, who is accidentally selected in a singing reality TV show. Som’s mother (Gracie Singh), an ex-professional singer, suddenly realises that her son could fulfill her own dreams that she left incomplete years ago.
However, Som’s father (Ranvir Shorey) worries that the child will miss up on crucial study time if he goes to Mumbai to take part in the contest. Nevertheless, Som and his mother leave for Mumbai to participate in the show, RaagaRocks.
But Som’s conquest for stardom ends faster than it had begun when the lad loses and comes back home. How Som’s life changes after that takes the story forward.
Writer-director Suman Ganguli is inconsistent when it comes to presenting his vision on the big screen. The film lacks zest and the story fails to excite. Even though this is an interesting concept, which showcases the reality of todays’ pop culture of television shows, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The story is predictable and from storyboard to big screen, the transformation of the screenplay is lackluster.
The film does have a simple plot, about how the youth are stuck between their dreams and their responsibilities; how parental expectations affect the lives of their children; how failure can create a void in a child’s life and the dichotomies they face in life but the transformation to the big screen is a letdown.
Cinematography by Chandrashekhar Rath is just about okay. Editing by Asif Ali Shaikh could have been better. The reality singing competition fails to engage.Performance-wise, Ranvir Shorey plays his part with conviction and impresses with the honesty with which he portrays his character. Gracie Singh is good. Rajpal Yadav is fantastic. Yatharth Ratnum does justice to his role. Arif Zakaria is okay. Mahesh Thakur is passable. Mehul Kapadia is good.

Verdict: Flop.
