Netflix on Tuesday dropped the trailer of its subsequent unique Ray. The anthology can have 4 gripping tales impressed by the works of legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray. Manoj Bajpayee, Ali Fazal, Harshvarrdhan Kapoor and Kay Kay Menon will shoulder every story based mostly on ‘ego, revenge, envy and betrayal’. Ray is ready to stream on Netflix from June 25.
Ray Star Cast
Director: Srijit Mukherji, Vasan Bala, Abhishek Chaubey
Writer: Niren Bhatt, Siraj Ahmed
Cast: Manoj Bajpayee, Gajraj Rao, Kay Kay Menon, Ali Fazal, Harshvardhan Kapoor, Radhika Madan, Shweta Basu Prasad, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, Rajesh Sharma, Bidita Bag, Kharaj Mukherjee, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Shruthy Menon, Anindita Bose, Neeraj Purohit, Loveleen Mishra, Raghuvir Yadav and Manoj Pahwa.
The trailer provides a glimpse of all 4 tales, and appears to be scored to the identical track that Marvel has been utilizing within the Black Widow promotions. We see Manoj and Gajraj’s characters, as they work together on a practice journey; we see Harshvarrdhan as a ‘typecast actor’; and Ali as a ‘cutthroat corporate shark’.
In an announcement, Chaubey mentioned about his movie, Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa, “I’m drawn to stories that twist with whimsy and humour. Hardly anyone crafts those better than Satyajit Ray and a chance to tell this story is a great opportunity for me. With Manoj Bajpayee and Gajraj Rao playing off each other on screen, Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa, I hope is as much of a joy to watch as it was to make. Super stoked about the show and can’t wait for people to watch it!”
Srijit Mukherjee, who directed two installments – Forget me Not and Bahrupiya -said, “Satyajit Ray has been a big inspiration in my life. After faithfully bringing two stories of Ray to life in Feluda Pherot, it is an honour and very fulfilling to reinterpret two more stories of Ray in a decidedly darker space. I also got the opportunity to work with a brilliant cast including actors like Kay Kay Menon, Ali Fazal and Sweta Basu Prasad across the two stories. I’m excited to see how the viewers will react to these imperfect and somewhat broken characters.”
Vasan Bala, who directed Spotlight, mentioned, “Spotlight is inspired by the prolific and illuminating works of Ray. An opportunity that led me to collaborate with wonderful talent. It’s a pulpy, quirky, music-filled tale of some very interesting characters. Harshvarrdhan Kapoor, Radhika Madan, Akansha Ranjan Kapoor and Chandan Roy Sanyal are in crackling form. Can’t wait for the audience to watch and react to it.”
Previously, Netflix has launched anthologies reminiscent of Lust Stories, Ghost Stories, Pitta Kathalu and most not too long ago Ajeeb Daastaans.
