RoCKET SINGH..the sales man of the year.

image courtesy...http://www.bharatmovies.com/hindi/info/Rocket_Singh.htm


This is the movie about a young student..not so academic to get on the top, but dreaming of bright future..one thing is clear that he knows what he wants and what he can do..so embarks on the career of a salesman..And then he finds that sales targets are the most important thing in the career, nobody bothers how they are done. He thinks that business can be done with ethics and honesty, so he starts a mini enterprise, where few people join him one by one, and they all are partners not employees.their motto is...
They will not give any bribe to get any order..be it watchman or the manager.
They will respect the people working with them.
For them after sale service will be more important than sales.

With these principles their company soars, initially they use the infrastructure of AYS where they work, but ultimately get caught...

This is eminently watchable film for....

Ranbir Kappor..he has portrayed a sardar, honest saleman as very lovable character.

Gauhar khan..As a receptionist aspiring to rise in AYS as manager, and then joining Ranbir..She is very endearing in her role...I would say she is the heroine of the movie, as Shazan Padamsee has a very small role and then she has no screen presence.

Naveen Kaushik..as the boss of sales team, who knows how to make deals, and the memebr of Ranbir's team is just adorable...he excels in both parts..initially a cunning and clever wheeler dealer and then a conscientious person.

Prem chopra..As old grandfather of Ranbir.

D. Santosh...As incharge of maintenance for computers..

Mukesh Bhatt..as Chotey lal mishra...With this character they have shown what work can be done if we just respect an individual.

Few things always remain with you after wathing this movie....like

Ranbir says to Puri..You looked only for numbers in business and ignored the people, but to me people are more important than numbers

Once either Puri or Rathore say to the team..Damn the customer, look at the targets, they must be met.

The office atmosphere is very natural and gives us an insight into sales mechanism.

Shimit Amin started the movie a little slowly, but then picked up very well, but they goofed up again in the end....The way Ranbir's company is returned to him in the end is all so filmy, and just doesnt go down well with the ethics of movie..instead they should have thought of something else..may be after 3 years ban period, they could all get together again and do it again, or anything else. A story with such a nice , brilliant idea and acting went down the drain for nothing.

Hey even I liked the movie. I felt the pace was decent. Yes the ending seemed a bit hurried, the way the company was returned and all, but I think the dialogue that the boss makes, of him having lost, and all, made it sound feasible. I was kinda satisfied with the movie. Waiting for Wake up Sid next sunday. Not sure if i would be able to watch it though.

Amrita: I also liked it and felt bad that it was a box office failure..I am waiting for Wakeup Sid:)

Madhu said...

Renu, one thing always bothered me...why do these movies always relate success to wealth? Its like, we are all not successful if we dont make tons of money.

Hey! Even I saw the movie when it aired on tv only. It's pretty nice. What I really liked about it was that it was a smart movie. Like it had a proper base...
Hard to come by movies like that these days and it's sad it didn't work at the box office

I have not seen this movie. You have described very nicely and I feel that I should watch this movie as its very nice, funny and interesting. Thanks for the lovely review.

starry said...

sounds like a good movie.have to see it.thanks for the review.

Renu said...

nivedittheperceptions:..that is the problem here..good movies are nevr promoted well.

madhu:..you have raised a very valid question..meaning of success is different for different people, but being a poor country, we give the maximum emphasis to wealth.

Babli:,..I like this type of issue based movies.

Starry:..its worth a watch.

Renu, I liked this movie. I watched it in two installments, saw more than half one day and the rest the next day.
A nice review.

SG said...

Looks like a nice entertaining movie, with a message.

Renu said...

Gauri Guha: I am a movie addict, once I start watching, I cant leave it:)

SG: Thats the beauty..its an entertaining movie with a message.

Tomz said...

That has to be a wonderful film..frm your review i think so...thanks for such thought provoking film reviews..waiting for more..

Madhu said...

Renu, yes in India people do give importance to wealth and there is nothing wrong with it. Just that...every single movie I come across they show wealth=success. Its like, misguiding the youngsters that they arent worth much if they are rich! isnt it?

Renu said...

Tomz:..This movie was in sync with my principles..I also believe that one can live with ethics and honesty and still in comfort.

Madhu: ..You are right . but for that matter onus lies on the family and parents to bring up their children with right values..Its parents only who enforce this view.
