In 1998, rock music had a shot in the arm with the emergence of Grunge. The voice of teenage angst found an audience across the globe and rock music seemed like it was on the threshold of becoming the leader in mainstream music.
‘Magik’ was one such band that wished to ride this wave.
This story about the 4 young friends who put together the greatest band this country had ever seen but never made it.
Years later fate conspires to bring them together again and sets them on a journey back to where they left off… a soul searching pilgrimage into their past.
Just like an old Indian saying, if one dies without fulfilling a cherished dream he will be reborn to have another shot at it.
The 4 of them came from different walks of life but when they jammed together they were ‘One’.
If Aditya was the mind then Joe was the will, Kd the heart and Rob the soul… Together they were… ‘Pure Magik’
So let’s rock on with the music till 29th August, when the film hits screens worldwide.
