Ranbir fails to charm audiences with 'Rocket Singh'

2009-12-14 22:10:00

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'.

Ranbir has failed to charm the trade.That is for sure.They are almost ridiculing him and painting the box office much worse than what it is.The numbers are not so bad..they are the same as Paa.But they are claiming that it has broken records of lowest openings in yearsShocked...this by Komal Nahata who is the senior most trade analyst and of course Taran Adarsh...

'RS responsible for Yashraj brand erosion' article may be Shahzan's dad he Ad guru ,media moghul Alyque P's  doingLOL.His daughter's debut was treated so badly.

But none would be as upset as Katrina after the media kept crowing that APKGK was hit only due to the Ranbir craze,she who never gets credit inspite of numerous super hits and resurrecting careers of Salman ,Akki and now Ranbir.She must be relieved.

Young Ranbir didn't keep his head ,after his hit.Funny his boasting"now my films will have bigger budgets"ROFL

He should take a look at Neil's new releases,banners,and co-stars before he makes another pompous statementApprove

i agree it was promoted poorly... i didn't see the promos on tv until a day or two before the film released.
