CAT Hindi Series Review & Ratings | Hit or Flop?

CAT Hindi Series Review: Randeep Hooda is a very underappreciated actor in the Hindi cinema industry. Despite appearing in numerous films that showcased his acting prowess, the actor still had difficulty getting his films shown in theatres. Talented performers like him may now release movies straight on OTT platforms since they entered the Indian market. Following his performance in the Netflix film “Extraction,” Randeep Hooda played a demeaning character in the underwhelming film “Radhe,” which received little attention. Now he has created the “CAT” television series, which premiered today and is streamable on Netflix. Let’s go into the in-depth analysis of this film to learn how well-crafted this television series is.

Verdict

The state of Punjab was formerly rocked by the countless drug cases and vast drug supply that drove young people insane. This series is based on the same material but with more excitement. Although this series has a similar plot to the film “Udta Punjab,” which was made on the subject, the protagonist’s transformation into a covert informant makes the writing in this series more compelling and exciting. A few parts in the middle of the episodes seem slow-moving and drag, but the narration and production style keep us interested until the very end. There are a few sequences that appear quite new and raw established against this backdrop of the drug mafia, but many situations may look fairly normal that were previously portrayed in a few movies.

Randeep Hooda is this series’ biggest supporter when it comes to acting performances, carrying the entire run on the strength of his work. He appears innocent, collected, emotionally outraged, and cruel in varying amounts of scenes. He is an excellent actor who can effortlessly convey any type of emotion as called for by the moment. Despite having a limited number of moments, Hasleen Kaur looks stunning on screen. Another actor in this series who makes an impression is Suvinder Vicky. All additional performers performed as needed for the plot.

The CAT series appears solid technically. Rakesh Varma’s (V Rakx Music) background music adds the suspense needed for various scenes. Arvind Krishna’s cinematography is so realistically depicting of the natural world in Punjab that it is almost spectacular. Few episodes seem a little too long, therefore the editing could have been a little better. Excellent production values.

The directors of this series, Balwinder Singh Janjua, Rupinder Chahal, and Jimmy Singh, had a greater understanding of the lives of young people in Punjab and strove to show those lives in a thrilling way. If a few situations from a few episodes are disregarded, they were somewhat successful in keeping the audience interested.

Overall, CAT is a compelling and unvarnished television show that depicts the struggle of Punjabi youth who are heroin addicts and the struggle of a guy who will do anything to aid his brother in overcoming it.

Plus Points:

  • Performances
  • Thrills in every episode
  • Raw making

Minus Points:
