The trailer of MX Player’s latest web-show Matsya Kaand sees actor Ravii Dubey play a conman who goes about his work as an artist. 

The makers call his character Matsya Thada an "honourable con artiste" who "conducts his kaand with aptitude, intelligence and charm rather than using his brawn".

Somehow, he always manages to slip past the cops as he moves from one job to the next.

But just when Matsya begins to feel that there is no stopping him, assistant commissioner of police [ACP] Tejraj Singh, played by Ravi Kishan, vows to apprehend him at any cost.

Talking about his character, Dubey said in a statement, “A master of disguise, a charmer, and a smooth talker with a sharp brain – the journey of playing the genius conman Matsya has been exhilarating. This one show had me essay so many-layered roles and truly challenged me as an actor, making me test my own versatility. I really hope that this complex character strikes a chord with audiences across the nation and I can promise you this narrative will keep you hooked to your screens."

Ravi Kishan termed the show 'different'. "It’s intelligent, its twists and turns will keep you at the edge of your seat and it’s the kind of series that will keep surprising you. My character ACP Tejraj has a streak of stubbornness and the drive to complete what he has started, these are traits that I can empathize with. I’ve always enjoyed watching a good con-thriller and this is a genre that is lesser explored in the web series ecosystem so I’m glad to be a part of something fresh on OTT," the veteran actor said.

Directed by Ajay Bhuyan, Matsya Kaand also stars Piyush Mishra, Zoya Afroz, Madhur Mittal, Rajesh Sharma and Naved Aslam. 

The show will be streamed from 18 November.
