As part of a year-long tribute of famous filmmaker Satyajit Ray’s 100th birthday, Netflix India is poised to premiere its four-part Original series Ray. Here’s a thorough guide to the show before it starts streaming. Ray will be available on Netflix India on Friday, June 25th.

Spotlight, Bahurupi, Barin Bhowmik-er Byaram (Barin Bhowmick’s Ailment), and Bipin Chowdhury’r Smritibhrom (Bipin Chowdhury’s Memory Loss) are four of Satyajit Ray’s stories that inspired the drama series.

About RAY

Bahrupiya is based on Bahurupi and tells the storey of a hapless man whose life is turned upside down when he discovers the last copy of his grandmother’s prosthetic makeup guide. With the notebook in hand, he sets out to confront anyone who he believes has wronged him.

Ray’s Bipin Chowdhury’r Smritibhrom influenced Forget Me Not. The plot centres around a corporate shark with a photographic memory. All is well until he had an accidental encounter with a woman he can’t recall. This drives him into a cycle of uncertainty and self-doubt.

Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa is a retelling of Barin Bhowmik-er Byaram that follows a mysterious ghazal singer and an ex-wrestler turned sports journalist on a railway journey. As they learn more about each other, they find that they met ten years ago on a similar train trip.
