Bollywood Paying Homage To Ray In The Latest Anthology

Netflix is already one of the pioneers in revolutionizing television in our households. In post covid era, more and more filmmakers and producers are stressing more about the OTT platform releases to reach audiences. Mainstream Bollywood stalwarts are already onto many projects across Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+ Hotstar, and the new “Ray” is one such project which is creating quite a stir for all the right reasons.

    Ray based on the short stories of Satyajit Ray is going to be released on Netflix

Satyajit Ray has been undoubtedly the most significant filmmaker and writer this country has seen, aptly backed by the fact that he brought the first Oscar in India. The latest anthology on the legendary Satyajit Ray already promises a lot through its star-studded cast and credible directors at the helm. This anthology will comprise four short stories of the Master, namely Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa, Forget Me Not, Bahurupiya, and Spotlight. The directors have stated that each story will be based on “revenge, ego, betrayal, and envy.”

The poster and the trailer has already created a huge excitement among the movie buffs

“Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa” will be directed by critically acclaimed director Abhishek Chaubey from Udta Punjab fame and, more recently, late Sushant Singh Rajput starrer “Sonchidiya.” “Spotlight” will be directed by Vasan Bala, the talented writer from Raman Raghav 2.0 fame. “Forget me Not” and “Bahurupiya” will add the Bengali connection in the series in the form of national award-winning Director Srijit Mukherjee. Srijit was also visually excited about the project a few days back while speaking about it with the media. The latest trailer drop from Netflix got the viewers visually excited for the same.

The anthology series has some terrific actors playing the leads

Manoj Bajpayee, still basking in Family Man 2, will be starring as the main cast in “Hungama hai Kyon Barpa” alongside Gajraj Rao. Spotlight will feature Harshavardhan Kapoor, the son of Anil Kapoor, and “Forget Me Not” and “Bahurupiya” will feature Ali Fazal and Shweta Basu Prasad, fresh from the success of “Mirzapur” and Kay Kay Menon and Bidita Bag, respectively.

The stories will reveal the life of the four characters going haywire and then their journey while exploring each of the many shades and vulnerabilities. Ray is slated to be aired on Netflix on June 25.
