Subhash K Jha speaks about Rocket Singh – Salesman Of The Year
It is very important to understand what cinema means to you. Is it just a vehicle to indulge in mindless diversion? In that case, Rocket Singh Salesman Of The Year is not your cup of tee-hee.
If cinema as a popular and predominant work of art is meant to make viewers reconsider the quality of their lives, then stop right here, take a deep breath and plunge into the mundane world of the Punjabi munda Harpreet Singh. Like Sid a month ago, Ranbir Kapoor plays a somewhat aimless guy, who’s just out of college wondering what to do next. That’s the moment when we jump into the lives of Sid and Harpreet, so similar in their soporific world-view and yet so diametrically different in their journey from premature jadedness to premature wisdom.
