Movie Review: Rocket Singh: Salesman of the year: Well-intentioned, sloppy situations

Rocket Singh - Salesman of the year is not without its loose ends and emotional baggage. Director Shimit Amin brings to life the tension of a computer sales office - employees crying over targets, sly seniors, an efficient receptionist, a computer voyeur, looming bosses and in the midst of it all, the fresher - Harpreet Singh Bedi.

Stirring an entertaining cocktail of a drama out of the available elements, Rocket Singh...goes to unexpected places without ever stumbling on a needless song or any stretched love angle. It couldn't have been as watchable if not for the performances - Ranbir Kapooor (growing as an actor) is spot on with his role, underplaying his Sikh character, D Santosh is hilarious as the sleazy computer operator, while Gauhar Khan is all spontaneity as the receptionist.
Stretched and contrived,but straight from the heart.
