Ray Trailer: Celebrating Satyajit Ray’s Tales

After giving us a tease earlier, today, Netflix dropped the Ray trailer. It’s an anthology series based on the stories by the cinematic legend Satyajit Ray. As per the earlier official statement of the makers, the theme of the series is love, lust, betrayal and truth and will explore vulnerabilities and multiple shades of each character. Manoj Bajpayee, Ali Fazal, Kay Kay Menon and Harshvarrdhan Kapoor will be playing four dynamic characters.

The trailer starts with a voice that says, ‘What are we? We’re just like Gods. We too are creators. We give birth too, just like he does.’ We see the back shot of 4 characters played by Harshvarrdhan, Ali, Kay Kay and Manoj during these dialogues. These characters lead a successful life as an actor, entrepreneur, ghazal artist and make-up artist, respectively.

The title for each story is intriguing and suits the role these four actors are playing in the film. But things go haywire when they decide to create their destiny. After one minute in the Ray trailer, we see the consequences of their success and how they are questioned, and they question themselves.

At the end of the trailer, we see four titles – Forget me not, Bahrupiya, Hungama hai kyon barpa and Spotlight. Filmmakers Abhishek Chaubey, Srijit Mukherji and Vasan Bala have come together to weave these exciting tales of Satyajit Ray. The anthology series also stars Radhika Madan, Shweta Basu Prasad, Anindita Bose, Gajraj Rao and Bidita Bag.

The Netflix description of the Ray trailer reads, “Woah, it’s almost like the dream team of Indian Cinema have assembled! Four unique individuals go on to achieve great things in their respective fields. But will their success be their own undoing? Did their success come at a cost? Watch these four timeless stories unfold.”

Ray will release on June 25 on Netflix. It’s a mix of satire to a psychological thriller with a stellar star cast.

In a statement to PTI, actor Ali Fazal talked about being a part of the Netflix original. The actor said, “It is an honour to be a part of his universe, to be involved in a project that has such a strong connection with him. With Forget Me Not, we’ve drawn inspiration from him, his writings and tried to create a story that’ll make you reminisce him while intriguing your thoughts.”

Shweta Basu Prasad also shared, “I think it is a great way to introduce the Netflix generation to Ray’s written work and I’m honoured to be a part of this. I remember going to my grandmother’s house and watching Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne, Sonar Kella, these are all Ray films. My first reaction when I heard about Ray was that of excitement. To me, being a part of a project that is named after India’s finest filmmaker is a pride.”
