Ludo Movie Review: A Cinematic Madness Bundled Into a Netflix Original

Ludo

Netflix is coming up with new shows and movies and latest one is Ludo, Netflix has made many movies over the past couple of years that are known to win our hearts and recently they’ve focused their attention on regional contentment as well. Which is why we get to see shows like the Sacred Games and all.

Now, there’s a new player in town going by the name Ludo. Yes! It’s another Netflix original movie knitted by amazing craftsmen, storylines, subplots, and a touch of the quirkiness of Hindi cinema.

“life ki lag gaye hai Ludo” an expression which is making Ludo for another word but clearly explains the movie in just one go. This is that the characters of the movie are basically stuck in a big game that is unwinding slowly and the rat race is on, just like a game of Ludo.

There’s a huge star cast namely Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Rohit Saraf, Pearl Maaney, Shalini Vatsa, and Pankaj Tripathi. This is also one of the reasons this movie is getting so much buzz.

The film industry has seriously been thinking about moving to OTT platforms in corona times as we can see by the trends of releasing movies in recent times.

Not to reveal any plot details, the movie has a lot of plot and a lot of characters just like a real ludo board with 16 pieces waiting to go full house. Now, every character has a completely different story and it takes turns in a way that is quite unpredictable.

The Kaleen bhaiya is again seen here as a gangster boss or a mafia but this time he has a different side to it with yellow tint glasses and spikes.

Moving on, we’ll see conflicted personalities such as a person who’ll do anything for love to someone who is obsessed by a woman from childhood to even now, when she had herself a husband and a baby.

The film is utter madness, and it has a great screenplay and storytelling style but as expected from this kind of movie, it disappoints a little at the end but still, the whole experience is just too fine to take that into consideration.

Have a treat this weekend and watch Ludo on Netflix for a blast. Also, if you haven’t listened to Arijit’s latest Aabad Barbad from the same movie, what are you doing with your life? Go hit Spotify now for a musical treat as well.
