Harpreet Singh Bedi (Ranbir Kapoor) has just graduated, and his marks are, well, let's say a little embarrassing. But marks never stopped him from dreaming of an exciting and adventurous career, and they never will. 'Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year' is the sometimes thoughtless, sometimes thoughtful story of a fresh graduate trying to find a balance between the maddening demands of the 'professional' way, and the way of his heart - and stumbling upon a crazy way which turned his world upside down, and his career right side up. Welcome to the world of sales, boss! Written by

A nice lesson for the business world....which they'll probably never adopt!
it's about people--your customers AND your employees unsteady cam==really sucked in closeups "Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year" is a very enjoyable film--and one that has some great lessons for the business world...if they cared to learn them. The film begins with Harpreet Singh Bedi (Ranbir Kapoor) graduating from college and realizing that with poor grades, he isn't qualified for being an executive. So, he gets a job in sales--but he's like a lion among the wolves. The computer company where he works is cold and cut-throat--and he needs to learn the art of bribes and half-truths to make it there. But he's basically a good guy at heart and it's soon apparent he'll soon get fired--as he's too good. Then he comes up with an idea--to beat his own company by forming a NEW company, Rocket Sales. Rocket Sales is dedicated to being honest, providing a product with far less markup and providing 24-hour service. Not surprisingly, clients LOVE getting what they pay for and Singh's such a nice guy, the company soon takes off. However, here's the kicker--now Singh has several employees--most of which STILL work for the old company and work for Rocket Sales on the side.
There's much more to the film than this, but what I liked was the film's heart and the many lessons it COULD use to their own betterment. However, bribes (especially in certain parts of the world--where it's routine), lying to customers and providing crappy service are just EASIER and probably will continue to be the norm. However, I can think of a couple huge computer companies that are now MUCH smaller--as a result of their standards. We can only hope they watch this film. In the meantime, however, it's great fun and is well worth your time.
Also, just to let you know--the usual song and dance numbers you'll find in modern Indian films are not in this one. There are some musical interludes but the characters themselves neither sing nor dance during these.
