(By Savneet Kachru)This week’s movie release ‘Rock of Ages’ takes you back into the 80s when life revolved around drums, guitars and people followed pop culture like religion. It was a period when the world witnessed some of the greatest artists who walked this planet.

They meet Dennis Dipree (Baldwin in a grungy look) and his aide Lonny (Russell Brand) who own a club called the ‘Bourbon Room’. This club goes through rough weather and certain vested interests run a campaign against it.
‘Bourbon Room’ could be saved only by someone like Stacey Jaxx (Tom Cruise) who is a megastar in the music industry. Highly unreliable and volatile in nature Jaxx join hands with Sherrie and Drew. They script a new success story together.
