Quick thoughts on Rocket Singh

First things first. Ranbir Kapoor seems to have truly arrived. How else do you explain a morning show for Rocket Singh being 80 per cent full! The foyer was teeming, with not an inch to move. And this for a film that was not even promoted so well.

Coming to the film, it’s very close to what Khosla Ka Ghosla was. Jaideep Sahni’s touch is more than evident. It’s the same story where the good people con the bad ones.

I’d say Khosla… was the more sharper film – the Delhi flavour, the satire, it’s irnonic wit made it one of the most delightful films in recent times.

Rocket Singh is a lovely watch too, and there are some enormously entertaining scenes. If Ranbir Kapoor was the very soul of Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani, here too, he makes a definite impression. But I get the feeling he’s getting stuck in goody-goody roles. At least with Ajab.., he had a lot of things to do. Here, his part is a bit too bland and one note. That could be deliberate to establish his ‘uncorrupted’ nature, and at points, it works as a good foil for the more interesting characters around him. But the length does bring on the tedium.

The highlight of the film are the characters around Ranbir. Model Gauhar Khan is super sexy, so is Ranbir’s sales manager. Giri.
This is of course Jaideep’s strength -where he etches out delightfully real-life characters. It was evident in both Chak De India and Aaja Nachle.

The film, at 2:40 mins or so, is certainly long. While it is similar to Khosla… in many ways, it differs to the extent that this one gets somewhat preachy and ponderous. This is a film Raj Kumnar Hirani would have been quite proud to make.

There is a fine message in the film, one that casts a wry look at the working of the sales world and attitude to customers. Since the company where Ranbir works is into assembling computers , a lot of the film revolves precisely around this. The story might get technical to those who are not really aware of frauds related to computer sales. That is a drawback.

All in all, since the film closely follows Khosla… , it’s can’t be altogether termed superlative. But it is still a very fine effort! Amin introduces a dozen new actors and that all of them perform with utmost confidence and flair.

At the boxoffice, I see it performing pretty well. The opening will be more than decent. Not great, but good at the BO.

    is this me or is this a sense of deja vu. anyone remember 15-16 years ago – a similar phenomenon happened with baazigar, darr and then kabhi haan kabhi naa. Now it is WUS, Ajab Prem and now Rocket Singh…..

    The Prince is here……

    Ranbir has surely arrived, and might I say is set for superstardom very soon. For the first time in bwood history, we have superstars in existence for every generation: BigB in 60s, SRK/Aamir in 40s, HR in 30s, Ranbir (potential in 20s)? Balances out things, and makes bwood capable of offering broad and diverse themes which were not possible previosly.
