Ranbir Rocket Singh - Actor of the Year

This being the initiation types week at IIM-I, 5 of us decided to go all the way to Indore (from the campus at Rau) to watch 'Rocket Singh'

The movie is well-made and enjoyable. Ranbir's performance truly stands out. The script falters a bit, but on the whole, it manages to keep the interest of the audiences going. I was quite surprised by the mostly empty seats at INOX Indore.
Supporting actors
Ranbir has been a revelation for me with his latest movies - Wake up Sid, Ajab Prem ki Gajab Kahani and now
Rocket Singh. In fact, Wake up Sid seems to be the coming of age for Ranbir, something like Dil Chahta hai was for Saif.

What impressed me most about the film and Ranbir's performance was the simplicity with which both touch your heart.

Going by reports that the film hasn't really hit the sweet spot at the box office, Ranbir may not be the Salesman of the Year (considering the way he was selling the film to us), but I'd say he could well be the 'Actor of the Year' OR more aptly, the Revelation of the Year.
