Just as the title of the series suggests, the series revolves around the scam of a character named Matsya with the help of unique disguises in different critical situations. Each episode of the series has been given a specific title keeping in mind a mythological character or critical situation, especially from the epic of Mahabharata. Another interesting part of the series is the way in which Anand teaches Matsya from the epic Mahabharata and is narrated in relation to Matsya.

For example, the very first episode of the series is titled Abhimanyu that draws a parallel connection with the 16-year-old son of Arjuna who fights into the Chakravyuha without knowing the way out and here Matsya is also trying to escape from the prison disguised as the superintendent of jail.

The screenplay of Shiv Singh in the series keeps you hooked. Also, there are times when you are able to predict that what is going to happen next. The director, Arun Bhuyan has done an incredibly decent job in narrating the whole story of this cat-and-mouse chase of a con artist that operates in places like Meerut, Jaipur, and Delhi and a badass cop on his heels. Ravi Dubey has done compete for justice to his role of Matsya. He is even unrecognizable in the various disguises.

He has raised the graph of his character throughout the series. Ravi Kishan too, has done a great job as ACP Tejraj Singh. And Ayush Mishra’s performance as Anand Pandit, teaching a convict with Mahabharata’s lessons has the soul of the whole plot. Also, Zoya Afroz and Madhur Mittal too have done a good job.

The production design by Saloni Dhatrak deserves an applaud and the action of the series has been captured in the real locations of Delhi, Meerut, Jaipur, and Sambhar so nicely and neatly by the cinematographer, Manojh Reddy. A few of the last scenes of the series give us an idea that there is something more to the Matsya Kaand and this game can get trickier and edgier in the coming season of the series.

Overall the series, Matsya Kaand has an interesting and engaging storyline. The performances of the actors in the series are up to the mark. The various disguises of Ravi Dubey as Matsya and the teachings of Anand are something that makes this series even more interesting and engaging. The series can be a good watch for a perfect crime thrilling weekend.
