Ranbir Kapoor turns in a skillfully understated performance in Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year.

This film -- part Mad Men and part Jerry Maguire -- is an underdog story about grit, perseverance, and ethics. Some sections in the first half of the film seem to drag, but once the story kicks off, you'll be sold on it.

Georgia Straight

A surprisingly sharp workplace comedy whose concerns should resonate with oppressed worker-bees everywhere. After all, who hasn't at one time or another been forced to weigh ideals against paying the electric bill?

Miss FlickChick

David-and-Goliath workplace drama from India goes unexpected places, and hits satisfying chords.

Film Journal International

Sporadically amusing, but it often drags and feels contrived and dull while suffering from an uneven balance of comedy, drama, romance and social criticism.

Audience Reviews for Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year

Mini Review 8 - Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year Plot: Harpreet Singh Bedi (Ranbir Kapoor) is a commerce graduate equipped with the dream of becoming a salesman. As a first stepping stone towards that goal, he joins a big computer assembly and service company - AYS. Pretty soon he finds out that world is not as true and clean as he perceived and jumps on to the decision of floating his own service company "Rocket Sales Corporation" on the sidelines. Brimming with honesty and confidence, Rocket Sales starts chewing in to AYS's profits and clientele. Rest of the story is about what fate has in store for Harpreet and how he comes across as an eventual winner. Positives: --> Talk about novelty and this is it. --> Excellent performance by Ranbir Kapoor --> Focused story line and squeaky clean narration with no hiccups and tangents Negatives: --> Me - if I end up writing something under this header!

Well, this was one of those movies that I almost turned off after about 40 min. It seemed like a decent movie, but I wasnt sure it was for me. But, I kept watching it for some reason. And I am so glad that I did. It turned out to be a really good movie. Very interesting, and really well made. I love movies where the underdog overcomes. This is definitely one of them.

Great movie that centralizes on a young college graduate that wishes to enter the business world of sales and marketing. Harpreet Singh Bedi lands a job with a computer company, and quickly learns that the position and the people working there aren't exactly what he had originally envisioned. The ethics involved alone causes problems with his own values, and this creates havoc with fellow salesmen, the sales manager, and the company director. The humiliation he endures allows him to take it upon himself to create a small company within the one he works for, and thus produces greater responses and connections utilizing the principles of values he abhors: co-op planning. Ranbir Kapoor, Shazhan Padamsee, Sharon Prabhakar, Gauhar Khan, and Prem Chopra stars. Definitely worthy!
