…Crazily out of of management, these characters are pushed deftly right into a melee of madnesss and steered expertly out of the mess by a director who has by no means been in a greater place. Welcome again, Mr Basu. Jagga Jasoos is forgiven….
by Anupama Chopra,
…Just like the hawa, Ludo can also be kabhi naram and kabhi garam. However the movie leaves you with a smile in your face. And proper now, that goes a great distance….
…Watch this one. It won’t be as addictive because the Ludo sport, however it positive is extra enjoyable….
by Jyoti Sharma Bawa,
…For a movie that will get a lot proper, the one jarring be aware is the title itself. ‘Life is Ludo and Ludo is life,’ the movie’s director tells us at the start, as he performs the sport whereas sporting a chihuahua of a faux beard. For a sport that was at greatest a ‘time go’ through the dreary lockdown, that degree of dedication is certainly commendable….
by Nairita Mukherjee,
…Is the movie excellent? Sure, it has its apparent flaws, the managed insanity of the beginning goes off-bounds on the finish. However that is additionally one factor Ludo teaches us – perfection is flawed, as is that sentence you simply learn….

…Don’t miss this one—it’s leagues forward of Basu’s multi-track “…Metro” and leaves me with an odd sense of pleasure—I’ve ALWAYS thought-about Basu to be one of many brightest administrators Hindi cinema has seen among the many millennium arrivals and he has but once more proved me completely proper….

…Positive you would possibly even lose your chain of thought/storyline right here and there— questioning the place you began from, who’s who, the place you’re, and the place you are headed—between a number of sub-plots. However you simply need all of them to proceed—constructing brick over a brick of an atrangi world, that you simply’re completely happy to remain inside for so long as you possibly can. Have watched it twice, so I do know!…

…as I stated earlier, Ludo will not be in regards to the particular person tales however the aftertaste they go away. There, it’s a feel-good movie which is able to make you snigger and encourage to not take life too significantly. One other good work from Anurag Basu’s repertoire….
by Ranpreet Kaur,
…General, the film was an ideal mix of spectacular story, unimaginable path, stellar solid and awe-inspiring efficiency which leaves you with a smile in your face as Basu has rekindled the idea of a contented ending however with a twist….
by Aishwarya Vasudevan,
…Not like earlier motion pictures of Anurag Basu, music does not play a catalyst right here and appears to be pressured into the narrative. Nonetheless, if listened to it as a jukebox, Ludo has a soothing album and Pritam Chakraborty deserves all of the credit score….
…All-in-all, Anurag Basu has as soon as extra given us true-to-life characters caught in circumstances not of their very own making and attempting to do their greatest below the circumstances. There aren’t any heroes or villains within the movie. Simply individuals making do with what life has thrown at them. The conditions typically might really feel implausible however you perceive that’s the director exercising poetic licence. Ludo is a darkish comedy at one degree and a moralistic story describing the consequences of karma on the opposite. Watch it for some impressed appearing by the ensemble solid and a few real laugh-out-loud moments……

“Sawaal puch raho raho jalebi kaa aur jawaab chahiye kalakand ka,” quips a personality, and also you notice that Anurag Basu has plenty of twists and turns in retailer on this sport of ludo. Fortuitously, Dada rolls a six in nearly each body to present us an entertaining sport….
…Ludo is a delight primarily owing to its solid. Each actor on this movie brings out the quirks related to the position, notably Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi and little Inayat Verma. Collectively, the movie’s hapless protagonists have interaction in a bittersweet run towards time as a peculiar play of feelings unfolds on the display….

…Nonetheless, on this time of corona, the virus discovering an honourable point out within the film, we may do with some enjoyable and video games, even when it slackens in bits. Basu can also be a dab hand at utilizing music in his motion pictures: the perky musical interludes inform a narrative of their very own. A six could be a 9, and sure, a strike can take you straight to the gates of heaven. Throw that cube….
by Ambika Sachin,
…Ludo ultimately works effectively due to glorious casting – the 4 tales are as assorted as they arrive and the ending scene is paying homage to a Western spaghetti with weapons blazing, music enjoying and slow-mo strikes that makes it traditional gold. The story by means of can appear a bit drawn out and was Anurag Basu’s cameo only a tad self-indulgent for a film packed to the brim with vibrant personalities? Additionally the messaging in regards to the reality about life, the great vs evil battle and about demise being the one actuality of life are all thrown at us somewhat didactically as if Basu needed the final phrase in and wasn’t content material to only let the message seep in subtly….
by Saibal Chatterjee,
…The ladies – Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Pearle Maaney, Shalini Vatsa (as the top nurse who develops a bond with Sattu Bhaiya) and the younger Inayat Verma, who’re all of their components all the time – add vary, depth and color to the sphere.
One of many male characters in Ludo admits to his buddies: “Kuch rishton mein logic nahi hota, sirf magic hota hai.” Completely! Consider Ludo as a experience with extra magic than logic and you’ll most likely discover it value some, if not all, of your love. Give the sport a shot….
by Nandini Ramnath,
…The criss-crossing between characters is noticed by a pair of commentators, together with Anurag Basu. The duo settles down for a number of video games of Ludo as plot strands intersect, unravel, after which bunch collectively once more. That is in order that we are able to delay the climax and go on and on, Basu’s character says – a reference each to the pornographic clip that has yoked Akash to Shruti collectively in addition to the bloated narrative itself….
by Srivatsan S,
…Basu appears to have learnt his lesson, for, the construction of Ludo is written with cautious precision and the assemble is cleaner; in Basu’s language, “it solely has a starting, a center, and an finish”. However its “center” half is the place it begins to develop a crack and you want it had been tighter, with a minimum of 20 minutes to spare. Thoughts you, Ludo will not be a “prolonged” movie, however the method wherein it jumps from one story to a different turns into repetitive; the best way these tales converge turns into handy, and the decision it will get in the direction of the tip is a tad generic….
by Sreeparna Sengupta,
…Ludo’ has some moments that sparkle, some which are edgy, quirky and stick with you, however it additionally has some indulgent ones and a few that appear pointless and unconvincing. The screenplay (Anurag Basu) will get scattered and meanders mid-way but when one can experience over these bumps (with a runtime of two and a half hours which will look like a tad a lot), the climax ties all the things up somewhat neatly, with some quintessential badass quotient and surprises thrown in. Watch this one for the noteworthy performances and its attention-grabbing mixture of morally ambiguous characters. In the end ‘Ludo’ tries to make a bigger level about not judging anybody for the alternatives they make….
