RocketSingh – Salesman Of The Year is more of a documentary on the life of asalesman. It’s a decent film, no two opinions on that, but the questionis, [a] Is the story powerful enough to excite you and [b] Does it grabyour attention in entirety? Sadly, the answer to both the questions isin the negative.
There’s another problem and this is strictlyfrom the point of those seeking entertainment. A Yash Raj film withRanbir Kapoor [after Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani] essaying the titlerole, coupled with fun-filled promos [‘Pocket Mein Rocket Hain’] mightmake you assume that it would offer loads of entertainment, but thishas barely a song or two, as good as no romance and hardly any comic moments – the recipe for most Hindi movies.
Ina nutshell, Rocket Singh – Salesman Of The Year is a dull and dryexperience. Harpreet Singh Bedi [Ranbir Kapoor] has just graduated andhis marks are, well, let’s say a little embarrassing. But marks neverstopped him from dreaming of an exciting and adventurous career, and they never will.
Hetakes a deep, positive breath and dives into the world of sales,rumoured to be an ultra cool career. It’s everything he dreamt of, withits smooth dressing, smoother talking men and women who can sell ice toan Eskimo, dreams to an insomniac and a lifetime mobile connection to adying man. But soon, his idea of success begins clashing with thestrange ways of these ‘professionals’ and ‘bosses’ he looked up to.
