Did You Know?


While many look at it as the sequel to Basu's 2007 film, Life In A Metro, makers haven't confirmed such talks. But it's believed that the new offering from Basu, who last helmed Jagga Jasoos (2017), centrs around unavoidable jeopardies of life and will have four different stories set in a quintessential Indian metro.

During the introduction scene of Alok (Aalu), he flips a bottle which lands on another table. If you look closely, you can see that they're both different bottles with different sizes and slightly different shapes. See more »

Entertaining , Funny in a dark way
12 November 2020 | by wwwaritraSee all my reviews

The film just starts from somewhere just like a Tarantino film with no real early insight on what is happening . We are slowly given birth to its world and what is really special about its film is its execution . The execution is unique and it keeps you hooked to the story . The film is rightly named as Ludo as it shows so many parallels with the board game . The ending scene of the film is extremely symbolic if you think about it . Pankaj Tripathi is just phenomenal in his role . He is calm minded yet violent and thats what i liked so much about the character. His character is much like Bob Biswas in Kahaani . Rajkumar Rao is as usual fabulous with his acting and the female leads did put forth commendable performances . Abhishek Bachchan is truly a gem for Indian cinema ... He has so much potential but yeah he shouldn't be compared with his father cause he is so much different .. overall the film is really good and unique with superb direction from Anurag Basu . Probably one of the best films of bollywood this year till now .
