After 2 years, I walked into Vaibhav theatre. These 2 years I was always a multiplex person so dint bother with the single screens. After much cajoling from my sister I decided to go there to watch 'Rocket Singh - Salesman of the year'. The place still feels the same and I was drowned in nostalgia. That theatre has given me so many wonderful moments and all that came flooding back today. So went I walked in I felt really nice and I had a big smile on my face. I was just hoping that the movie is good. It was.
I kept wondering why this movie was not all promoted. Yash Raj, Shimit Amin together again after 'Chak de' but absolutely no promotion. When I saw the ratings in the paper I decided to watch it. After all the work I was doing, I did deserve a break. The movie is good. Not great. Really simple and simplicity oozes out of every frame. The movie screams 'Honesty is the best policy'. Ranbir plays the same role he did in 'Wake up Sid' and 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani'. A loser who turns out to be the hero at the end. He looks really good as the sardar salesman and his face portrays innocence to perfection. He looks amazing in the sexily cut formals (Not better than the one I have in mind :-). His acting has always been good but now I'd like to see him in different roles. After 3 same kinda roles its high time.
The rest of the cast is impressive. Minus Shazahn Padamsee. She looks too young and doesn't have a single acting bone in her. Gauhar Khan is good. The rest of the office crew is simple and anyone can easily identify with them. This movie is surely worth a watch. Simplicity at its best.
