Ranbir Kapoor's attempts to highlight a salesman's life through his latest outing 'Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year' have gone awry, as the film has fallen flat at the box office.

Produced and distributed by Yash Raj Films (YRF), the film has been directed by Shimit Amin and written by Jaideep Sahni of 'Chak De! India' fame.

Made at a shoe-string budget of around Rs.5 crore, 'Rocket Singh...', however, couldn't bring in anticipated footfalls, say experts.

'Rocket Singh' has not at all been satisfactory and done very bad business. The occupancy has fallen to 25 percent Monday from an average of just 68 percent over the weekend,' Amit Awasthi, manager (programming and operations) of Spice Cinemas at Noida, told IANS.

'The content is not being appreciated, as the second half is being called very slow and dull and the climax is being considered to be not at all satisfactory,' he added.

Yogesh Raizada, corporate head, Wave Cinemas echoed the same view.

'The movie lacks mass appeal - audiences could not associate with it considering its content on sales guys, etc. So, the weekend was only average but not up to expectations,' said Raizada.

'The weekend was only close to 70 percent while Monday it has fallen close to 40 percent,' he added.

The movie is the debut vehicle of Shazahn Padamsee, daughter of ad man Alyque Padamsee and singer Sharon Prabhakar. Gauhar Khan and Sharon also play pivotal roles in the movie.

'The film has been a disappointment for the industry,' said Delhi-based distributor Joginder Mahajan.

The movie also killed Ranbir's chances of a hit hattrick after delivering two back to back hits with 'Wake Up Sid' and 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani'.

@kiran-madi going in for a sardar role doesn't make anyone less handsome...sorry found that comment offensive as being a sardar is not a bad thing

ranbir is a great actor and hit or flop does not make a good or bad actor.. even amitabh bachchan had probably 10 flops before he did zanjeer and then people realised his talent ... and we have lots of actors who give hits inspite of no talent !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sanwariya was flop and his acting was hit and thats why he got so many other movies..in ajab prem ki...he was amazing and very natural and katriena for sure was good as a support but did not make it hit beacause of her .. she is an average actor ..wake u sid was a great movie and his acting was superb.. i have not seen rocketsingh but going to watch it for sure and that too because he is a good actor not because it's a hit or flop.. singh is king was a hit and could not even watch for ten mimutes and same with kambakht ishq.. blue.. etc etc...
