All of them are travelling in the hopes of checking something off their bucket lists, but the trip is full of obstacles and letdowns. Is there a chance Jeeva will be able to satisfy their wants?

It seems like director Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi intentionally took time to establish each character and their world because the viewer needs to travel the entire series, and it worked out quite well. Paper Rocket is a lighthearted, feel-good show with a splash of philosophy, hope, quirk, adventure, and peace. All these emotions are presented so well with each character as the series takes time to pick up the pace.
The eight episodes of this series only partially hold your attention, despite the well-written characters and their storylines. Each episode also has a lovely conclusion, but as we watched the series, we noticed that there were few emotions present, perhaps because the feelings between the six strangers could have been better expressed.
Even though Jeeva is not a particularly difficult character to play, Kalidas Jayaram does a good job in the role. The rest of the cast also did a good job.
The concept behind Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi’s show is sound, but she was unable to execute it on screen. There are numerous scenes that make it difficult to move the plot forward in the series and give the impression that the writers are trying to make a long episode out of a short one.
Technically. Looks good, Richard M. Nathan & Gavemic U. with Paper Rocket The rest of the cast performed admirably as required by the series, but the music by Simon K. King is not up to par.
Last but not least, Paper Rocket is a stunning synthesis of human emotions.
