OTT web series Rocket Boys review
Creator Nikkhil Advani and writer director Abhay Pannu give us a remarkably overwhelming experience in this 8 episode epic series that captures the spirit of these two men Dr. Vikram Sarabhai (Ishwak Singh) and Dr. Homi J. Bhabha (Jim Sarbh) in one of the most profoundly motivating moments on screen.
Rocket Boys turns more special and gains more importance that in all probability, this will the great Indian space legends Dr. Homi J. Bhabha, Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and Dr. Kalam ( his initial days) to the attention of a lot of people around India especially. We all cheered when the ISRO Chandrayaan programme was a success, Rocket Boys will tell us how this was made possible by these two mad scientist who where a true patriot as well.
The personal stories of Dr. Homi J. Bhabha and Dr. Vikram Sarabhai plus their camaraderie add to the charm in this enlightening series that has everything.
Jim Sarbh as Dr. Homi J. Bhabha and Ishwak Singh as Dr. Vikram Sarabhai nail it to perfection.
Solid support comes from Regina Cassandra as Sarabhai’s wife, Rajit Kapoor as PM Nehru, Dibyendu Bhattacharya as the rival, Saba Azad as Bhaba’s love interest, Arjun Radhakrishnan as Kalam, Namit Das as a journalist and K.C. Shankar as Bhabha’s assistant.
Creator Nikkhil Advani and writer director Abhay Pannu sure-handed ability to give proper justice to the great Indian scientific minds Dr. Homi J. Bhabha and Dr. Vikram Sarabhai on screen. Performed brilliantly by Jim Sarbh and Ishwak Singh Rocket Boys made me say that they though it’s a pity that people like Bhaba and Sarabhai are not in the making nowadays, Nikkhil Advani, Abhay Pannu and SonyLIV get all the accolades for bringing them alive on screen.
