Netflix just released the trailer for the upcoming ensemble movie “Ludo” and one thing that can clearly be understood from this is that it’s a mess. A complete and utter mess, but mess in a good way. In a way that can make a movie really good and interesting. Ludo was conceived to be released on the big screen but the ongoing pandemic brought it down to the OTT platforms. Whatever might be the case, we are definitely going to get a good movie, seems like that at least.
Ludo focuses on 4 separate stories that occur simultaneously in one metro city. All those four stories though separate and have separate beginnings all end up or intersect each other at some point or the other. A lost suitcase of money, a resurfaced private video brings and pushes the characters to do all sorts of things to solve it or be in the game of Ludo, as we may say.
This is what makes the story similar to the game of Ludo. Separate beginnings, separate paths but all intersect each other at some point and are destined to go to the same place at the end. This is what is said about the movie too. No prior knowledge of each other’s existence but end up playing the same game as the one they are playing. The trailer from the looks of it is very jumbled up and confusing, and guessing from it, it was probably done on purpose to keep the sense of suspense intact.
The movie stars Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra, Abhisekh Bachchan, Pankaj Tripathi, Rohit Saraf and Pearle Maaney. The movie is written and directed by Anurag Basu who is extremely happy with the outcome of it being a totally out of the box movie. The movie is produced by T-series and Anurag Basu Productions and has the music by Pritam. The movie will be released on 12th November, 2020 on Netflix.
It will be interesting to see how similar it is to the game of Ludo and will our confusions be cleared once we watch the movie? Guess only, time and “Ludo” can answer that for us.
