It is the world of sales where the day starts with the words like targets and deadlines crowd in one’s mind. Director Shimit Amin’s Ricket Singh tells a story of one such aspiring salesman, whose academic records may not support his ambition but that does not deter him from dreaming big.
Harpreet Singh Bedi (Ranbir Kapoor), who has graduated with poor marks and yet he dreams of an exciting career ahead. He stands upright and with a positive view point, Harpreet drags himself to a sales job which he feels suits him best. Having the gift of glib and smart look, he imagines himself as the most successful salesman, who can convince absolutely anyone to buy any kinds of products.
His smooth life soon gets the jerk as he comes face-to-face with the crudity of a professional life. Harpreet finds it strange the way a professional life demands things from him and struggles to find a balance between the demands of the professional world and his heart’s desire.
