Rocket Boys — the new SonyLIV web series now streaming.The story of two extraordinary men, Homi Jehangir Bhabha and Vikram Ambalal Sarabhai, who created history while building India's future

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)

The father of India's space programme Vikram Sarabhai (Ishwak Singh, from Paatal Lok).

Geniuses and men of purpose — from Michael Jordan to, well, Bhabha — are selfish

Ruminative at times, Rocket Boys — written and directed in its entirety by debutant Abhay Pannu

It reflects on the characters' internal struggles, pursuits, and challenges.

As a piece of longform entertainment, beyond giving us a window into the confluence of science and politics
