If a series or a movie is made based on the real life incidents, makers have to gather a lot of information before presenting it on screen, as few situations may create tensions among few section of audience. But in case of Rocket Boys, there are no such scenes that are objectionable. It is purely based on the life of two brilliant scientists from the history, who brought up many changes in the field of Indian scientific research.

Series slowly and steadily gets into the plot. Though the narration may not be appealing to few audience, this series will definitely leave a lasting impact on audience with honest making and intriguing story telling in every episode. Trailer has already revealed much of the story that has been focused in season 2 and it was intelligently presented by the director in every episode.

While it comes to acting performances, Jim Sarbh as Homi Bhabha is brilliant in his role and his way of delivering the dialogues is a treat to watch. Ishwak Singh as Vikram Sarabhai also impressed with his performance. Regina Cassandra, Saba Azad, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Namit Das, Arjun Radhakrishnan and all other actors did their part well.

Technically Rocket Boys 2 is very good. As most of the series based on the drama, music of this series seems like has very less importance and Achint Thakkar was decent with the music throughout. Cinematography by Harshvir Oberai is one of the major highlights in the series, his visuals will give us feel of watching a Hollywood series. Art department and costume department should be given a huge applause for recreating pre-historic era.

Director Abhay Pannu is successful once again in presenting the story very neatly making it easy for all the audience to understand the history.

Overall, Rocket Boys season 2 is another interesting and intriguing series that has to be watched by everyone.
