A tribute to the legends of India’s space adventure — Dr. Vikram Sarabhai (Ishwak Singh) and Dr. Homi J. Bhabha (Jim Sarbh) — Rocket Boys digs deeper into the lives of India’s greatest scientific minds as they charge through the creation of the Indian Space Program.
Rocket Boys Season 1 Web Series Cast, Episodes, Release Date, Trailer and Ratings
Rocket Boys — the new SonyLIV web series now streaming — is, largely speaking, a masterly act. As a character drama, Rocket Boys deftly balances the personal and professional worlds of its dual leads: the father of India's nuclear programme Homi Bhabha (Jim Sarbh, from Made in Heaven), and the father of India's space programme Vikram Sarabhai (Ishwak Singh, from Paatal Lok). Ruminative at times, Rocket Boys — written and directed in its entirety by debutant Abhay Pannu — reflects on the characters' internal struggles, pursuits, and challenges. It chronicles their brilliance and perseverance (aside from their friendship), but it's also not afraid to reckon with the fact that Bhabha and Sarabhai didn't always deliver on their promises.
