Every generation reinvents Romeo and Juliet in a way that strikes a chord with its peculiar sensibilities, experiences and outlook. This, then, is Romeo and Juliet for the YouTube generation, a film that plays off the wide-ranging tastes of youth accustomed to taking the glamorous with the grimy, the comic with the tragic, the beautiful with the freakish and the venal with the elevated. "This is not a conventional musical with a cast breaking into hummable choruses when the text fails. It's an opera using hip hop, rock, pop, ballad and gospel styles to seamlessly tell one of the greatest stories".
