Breaking the common convention of sales, Harpreet shows us a different way to become ‘The Salesman of the year’. The plot strikes a poignant chord with an honest salesman struggling to cope with the unjust demands of a ‘professional’ life. The hostile work atmosphere and religious killing of integrity are not what Harpreet was prepared for and now it is his turn to prove that he is not a ‘big zero’ in his life, as his seniors consider him to be.
Jaideep Sahni conveys an earnest message to the people belonging to the sales fraternity and that too under the garb of a comic hue. Witty dialogues in the film and decent performances of the characters take the audience for a satisfying ride, except some bumpers here and there.
Question may crop on the hastiness of the story and certain digressions from reality, but then Ranbir Kapoor’s consistent performance throughout and affable support from his dadaji (Prem Chopra), Gauhar Khan and Shazahn Padamsee fill these loopholes. Salim and Sulaiman Merchant’s apt choice of music did not fail to hit the nail on the head. Anshum’s cinematography and his eye for bright colours in the film will not go unnoticed.
It will be a unique revelation for the audience to find a salesman who takes risk when he has nothing except honesty. He assures himself, “risk toh Spiderman ko bhi lena padta hai, mein toh phir bhi salesman hoon”. His ventures are worth witnessing.
