Here’s Why We Think Ranveer Singh’s Rocky Randhawa Is A Total Green Flag. We Stan A Secure Heartthrob Ji!Where are men like Rocky?
Over the year, we’ve all come across Bollywood films where the man is a smart, driven and career-oriented person while the woman is usually someone whose life just revolves around the man. We’ve practically grown up watching such films. But we’ve hardly come across films where a man is comfortable with the woman being smarter than him and being more driven and career-oriented like Ranveer Singh’s Rocky and Alia Bhatt’s Rani in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.
In the Karan Johar-directed Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, Ranveer Singh’s Rocky is the beauty and Alia Bhatt’s Rani is the brains. Alia’s character does not get an elaborate intro montage where she’s seen getting dressed or dolled up like most other Bollywood films. Instead, we see her intro scenes focused on her career and work as a journalist. On the other hand, Rocky gets an elaborate intro montage which focuses on his clothes, shoes and gym routine which reminds one of Poo’s introduction video from K3G.

As the story moves forward, we see that Rocky isn’t insecure or jealous of Rani and her work or intimidated by her intelligence. If anything, the man quite literally fell for her after watching her in action on camera as she interviews and tears into a politician for his sexist statement. Her drive and passions are what Rocky loves. And then there’s Namit Das’ Somen Das who likes Rani for how she looks as opposed to Rocky who likes her because she’s a high-value woman.

Throughout the film, at no point did Rocky try to box Rani or mould her as per his or his family’s needs or liking. Despite knowing that he’s nowhere as intelligent or driven as Rani, Rocky continues to love her (not to glorify it) without being insecure, possessive or displaying problematic behaviour. He is extremely comfortable not being the Alpha male in the relationship as Rani takes on the role. He’s also comfortable with his emotions as we see him tell Alia’s character about how he feels used.
TBH, we all want men like that but kahan hain raise ladke!
