Ray Review: Netflix’s Web Series
Have you ever tried to look within yourself? If yes, what did you find? Why I am asking these questions are directly related to Netflix’s latest web series Ray. The series features Manoj Bajpayee as Musafir Ali, Kay Kay Menon as Indrashish Saha, Ali Fazal as Ipsit Rama Nair, and Harshvardhan Kapoor as Vikram. It is an anthology web series created by Sayantan Mukherjee and directed by three directors Srijit Mukherji, Abhishek Chaubey, and Vasan Bala. Legendary Satyajit’s works inspire the entire series.
The series shows the story of four different characters who face the two entirely opposite faces of life. Suppose you have been a very popular celebrity and suddenly no one recognizes you. A similar thing has been shown in this web series. It contains a total of four episodes. Let’s try to understand all the four main characters in the series.
Manoj Bajpayee, who is playing Musafir Ali, used to be a very popular Ghazal singer. You see his journey to get his lost fame back.
Kay Kay Menon, as Indrashish Saha, is a make-up artist who is considered an impersonator.
Ali Fazal plays Ipsit Rama Nair, is a very successful entrepreneur with the ability to remember everything, but things start changing when he starts forgetting things.
Harshvardhan Kapoor, as Vikram, is the person who has been in the spotlight throughout his entire life until one day he comes across religious leader Didi (Radhika Madan).
I think this web series is a masterpiece; I assure you that you have never watched anything like this and when you watch it, you will be astonished. The story of the series is, of course, very unique, but the performances of Manoj Bajpayee and Kay Kay Menon add a feather to the cap of the web series. I rate this web series 9 out of 10. Please share what you think about this web series; we would love to know your thoughts. Thank you!
