CAT Story

The plot of CAT revolves around a Punjabi guy named Gary (Gurnaam Singh), played by Randeep Hooda. While on his mission to avenge his parent’s deaths, he also commits many crimes. Teaming up with a rebel group and going undercover for the police, he does everything for his family. And, for the same family, he goes undercover once more, this time with a mission to expose the drug trade.

Well, as it has been said, “honest people can be easily deceived,” and he eventually becomes a puppet in the evil plot to gain money and power.

CAT Review

What makes this series successful is its reasonable execution. From understanding the Punjabi setting to bringing well-researched characters and plot, it has definitely done a commendable job. From appearances and gestures to dialogues, the makers have managed to preserve the ascent of Punjab. However, the suspense wasn’t that great as the plot was occasionally predictable.

Being a thriller movie, it would have kept it less obvious to easily engage the audience till the end.

While the screenplay, background score, and direction are average, they worked out well with accurate execution.

CAT Review: Star Performances

Randeep Hood is a brilliant actor, and he has once again proved it with his perfect depiction of Gurnaam Singh. While he plays a character who battles with his morality, his role shifts from sceptic to a man with power. The way Randeep transitions into  different shades of his complex character with utmost ease deserves praise. He has managed to stick to the script and ideally play the role of Gurmaan Singh.

Final Verdict

The USP of ‘CAT’ is its perfect portrayal and Randeep Hooda’s excellent performance. He has definitely nailed the character and has taken the responsibility of engaging the audience on his shoulders
