Soumya Srivastava | Hindustan Times: - | 8/10
Jim Sarbh soars with an exceptional cast, SonyLiv finally delivers a great successor to Scam 1992. Rocket Boys also earns many points for the unrelenting attention to detail and realising the need for creating the right atmosphere for your story ... Full Review

Archika Khurana | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Rocket Boys is a glowing tribute to India's scientific luminaries, as well as their struggle and hard work. On top of that, Jim Sarbh and Ishwak Singh give credible performances in this biographical drama, making it a well-intended series ... Full Review

Prathyush Parasuraman | Film Companion: - | 7/10
A Sincere, Soaring Hat-Tip To ‘Nehru’s Mad Scientists’. For all its flaws, is a feast of emotions, bursting with pride, pushing back at malice for the most part. At its finest, it is a soaring, engaging drama of two friends busy making their personal missions a national cause ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: - | 6/10
An absorbing state-of-the-nation saga. Both Jim Sarbh and Ishwak Singh, in the titular parts of Homi J Bhabha and Vikram A Sarabhai, are excellent ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: - | 8/10
The series gets the science of blending fact and fiction absolutely right and delivers a viewing experience that is a marked remove from generic shows ... Full Review

FirstPost: - | 5/10
Rocket Boys seems to have failed to fully digest the personalities of both Homi Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai, to come up with anything interesting to say about their lives, apart from throwing empty adjectives of praise ... Full Review

India Today: - | 5/10
Director Abhay Pannu has tried to pack in too much into a series that feels overstretched. A line in Rocket Boys goes, “Often the best men tend to lose objectivity in their pursuit of excellence.” Perhaps, this is what happened to the series ... Full Review

The Hindu: - | 7/10
Jim Sarbh and Ishwak Singh head a fantastic ensemble cast that gloriously bring to life the achievements of the scientific community in launching India’s atomic and space programmes ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 6/10
Rocket Boys sometimes lands a bit like one of the early experiments with bomb-making and rocketry. The outcome may not always be as desired, but 100 on 100 for sheer effort and extra points for gumption ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 3/5 | 6/10
Commendable execution, sincere performances make Jim Sharb-starrer a watchable affair. The show works mainly because of the detailed character development and sincere performances ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 4/5 | 8/10
This is a work of staggering ambition and sincerity, mainly given that you won’t easily find its immediate equivalent from Indian television. It’s a biopic, yes; make that two, in fact. But from a field that, unlike, say, sports or crime, doesn’t instantly lend itself to obvious drama, as it were. We’re talking science, of course ... Full Review

IANS | On Mamorama: 3/5 | 6/10
Overall, despite its shortcomings, 'Rocket Boys' is a meaningful series that succeeds in both educating and inspiring the viewers, especially young minds inclined towards science ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 3/5 | 6/10
Rocket Boys is certainly a show worth investing time in. However, if one were to go in expecting a space drama this would be a disappointment. Rocket Boys is all about the life and trials of Vikram Sarabhai and Homi Bhabha ... Full Review

High on Films: 3.5/5 | 7/10
There are some moments in the series where it seems to fall into the traps of regularity. Some of the twists and turns do not come across as organically as they could have. But, the series mostly manages to negate those with its good performances, top-notch cinematography, and a superlative title sequence ... Full Review

Pankaj Shukla | Amar Ujala: 4/5 | 8/10
हिंदी में अब तक बनी वेब सीरीज में वेब सीरीज ‘रॉकेट ब्वॉयज’ गिनती बेहतरीन सीरीज में सालों साल होती रहेगी। पहले एपीसोड से आठवें एपीसोड तक एक मिनट भी यह आपका ध्यान भटकने नहीं देगी, इसकी गारंटी मेरी है ... Full Review

Ravi Bule | ABP Live: 3/5 | 5.5/10
सीरीज की समस्या यह है कि इसकी रफ्तार धीमी है. बहुत सारी साइंस की बातें हैं. जो हर किसी के समझ नहीं पड़ेगी. रोमांस थोड़ा है ... Full Review

TV9 Hindi: 4/5 | 8/10
जिसे अपने इतिहास को स्क्रीन पर देखने में दिलचस्पी हैं उन्हें यह सीरीज बिलकुल भी बोर नहीं करेगा ... Full Review

OTT Play: 4/5 | 8/10
Jim Sarbh is the diamond that helps the already well-made series shine out, a series you would not want to miss out on because such a work comes across rarely anyway ... Full Review

The Envoy Web: - | 8/10
Rocket Boys will give you goosebumps on more occasions than one. This is storytelling of the apex calibre. One of the best shows to have come out of India, it is proof of the true extent of what can be achieved when all the stars align ... Full Review

The Quint: - | 7/10
The show is clean, seamless, visually beautiful, the cinematography, set design, and music score are champions and Jim Sarbh, much like all the other cast, is outstanding ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 7.5/10

PinkVilla: 4/5 | 8/10
A fabulous retelling of India's empirical journey bolstered by emotions, personal ambitions and great milestones. One such journey that current India might like to revisit ... Full Review

Arre: - | 7.5/10
Overall, this fictionalized exploration yields an engaging viewing, and for Indian showbiz, a rare success at making real scientists look like mythical heroes ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | IWM Buzz: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Rocket Boys is high on good intentions and comparatively low on execution. There is too much happening here, and too little that does justice to that portion of Indian history which it attempts to arrange in a serial manner ... Full Review

Outlook India: 4/5 | 8/10
Rocket Boys while celebrating their achievements, doesn’t mind shining light on their losses, their rash and their weak moments and all those decisions that made them human, also rightfully acknowledging the support of their families, not just emotionally, but in their cases financially and influentially as well ... Full Review

Lehren: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Rocket Boys gets its ratings for some spirited performances. Right on top is Jim Sarbh, armed with the natural blessing of Parsee genes but going way beyond to make the stylish, accomplished Homi J Bhabha completely credible ... Full Review
