The movie chronicles the arrival of a (Hindu) student to a strict all-boys Christian boarding school in India and his assimilation into the school. The change is quite dramatic to the protagonist and there are a lot of events that would look extremely abusive to the viewer.Written by

Rockford is a simply-told story of day-to-day struggles of most adolescents who attend public boarding schools (at least in India). It has an excellent script, well directed, and fascinatingly enacted. The characters have been so realistically portrayed into their roles that a viewer is completely enmeshed in the plot and can relate to the boy (Rohan Dey) and his life. Every character has been shown in light of such seriousness and sincerity that even though it is a comedy, it is a "thinking" one. Boys aspiring to be men is a central theme (though the "other side always looks greener"). Although a few parts were a bit exaggerated, they did not feel out-of-place. The subjects of "sneaking" (tattling), child abuse, adolescent love, etc. in boarding schools have been handled very well by Nagesh Kukunoor. It is a film about hurdling life's barriers and dealing with its issues at your own terms. The use of music at the right places improves the film's appeal.
