This is the story of a steamer, named in English, 'The Orange Ship'. The people from Khulna to the steamer's passengers, their story is in the orange rocket. But this is not only just individual stories of many people in steamers, but also it has become the story of recent Bangladesh. There are people of all upper-class and lower-class. They are unfamiliar, but there are mutual contributions. Aatik is the representative of the upper class, traveling in the first class cabin, or the name of a steamer, orange rocket. There are also some other interesting characters like Monsur (come from a lower class family), a rich family with their adventures sister, and Mofiz.Written by

Good initiative from a new director
I would honestly rate this movie an 8 out of 10 as a Bangladeshi movie. I gave 10 out of 10 to motivate the director.
This movie is better than many Bangladeshi movies. Mr. Taukir Ahmed's acting was very good. There were many side stories which did not have any end. Perhaps, the movie creators just wanted to show real life scenario through those stories. The movie was good. However, there was no tension (not much). The frequency of the movie was little bit flat. By the way, I am comparing this movie with any master piece Bengali movie, like 'Monpura' (in my view). The ending of Komola Rocket was okay, but it did not leave any thought for the audience to calculate after the movie. Mr. Taukir Ahmed's 'Aggatanama' was a pretty plain story but it had better spice and there were tension.
In conclusion, I would say, It was a very good movie, just a little far from being a masterpiece. I would request the director to make more movies like this or, better than this.
