Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year! - Review

Rating ****
Vidit Bhargava
This probably the dullest movie interms of sets that I have seen. 90% of the movie is shot in an office. At first glance the movie looks boring, it isn't. After Chak De India, the duo of Shimit Amin and Jaideep Sahni are back and with a completely different and unpredictable script.

The story is about Harpreet Singh(Ranbir Kapoor) who has almost flunked in his college finals but unlike Wake Up Sid! for the first time he knows what to do. He applies for a salesman job at a computer sales firm n' gets it. Nothing new, he is honest and is not able to tolerate the bribing that goes on in the 'sales world'. For that he is punished and humiliated, he begins his own firm in the firm, which is ofcource a secret known by too many people, he becomes successful doing that and ofcource he is not taking bribes, the rest is to be seen in theatres.... . Honestly the movie hasn't ended yet on his being successful.

The Script is gripping, the movie builds interest as it progresses, even if it gets boring when all that business talk starts, the movie still is my favorite this year!

Ranbir Kapoor is unrecognisable as a 'sardar', you only know him when he speaks and every sidekick also does acting very well. Nobody here is bad in acting!

Music of the movie is blended with the movie, there are 3 in the album and even less in the movie. "Pocket Mein Rocket" was conveniently removed but the rest of the songs are good.

The movie is full of one liners and gr8 dialogues like; "Risk toh Superman ko bhi uthana padta hai main to phir bhi Salesman hoon" and "Number kum hain par dimaag nahi!" exceptionally carried out by Ranbir and starcast.

In a nut shell, The movie teaches you to be honest and how honesty still works. It makes you clap. The movie is no moral science lecture and the boring background doesn't cause the exceptionally gripping and interesting story any hurdle.
