Why should you watch Ray?
People who have been ardent followers of Satyajit Ray need to watch this series. Since they already know how great his stories were. And people who aren’t much aware of him should watch this series for its amazing production and internal consciousness of the characters. Another reason to watch the show is how well all the episodes have been chalked out.
The cast is another great motivation for watching this mini-series. The show features amazing actors like Ali Fazal, Manoj Bajpayee, Harshvardhan Kapoor, Radhika Madaan and Kay Kay Menon.
Based on works by Stephen King or Ray Bradbury, Ray is similar to shows like Black Mirror. As such, the 'episodes' are in fact films in their own right, connected only by a thin thread of theme.
