It is said that a movie is the “mirror image of our life,” and it is not every time you get to watch mirrors come alive. Among the rare incidents that everyone encounters, one has happened with the release of the latest Bollywood Movie – Ludo. The movie came out on Netflix on 12th November 2020 and has turned out to be Bollywood’s most sensible comedy movie.
Talking about comedy, how’s Laxmii doing these days!
Never mind! So skedaddling ahead, let’s talk about how Ludo, aka the game of life, has won our hearts and kept the hope alive in Bollywood. Simple, by keeping the sanity, sensibility, and story intact.
How is Ludo, a game of life?
Speaking figuratively, life is just a board with jumping coincidences all over it. And what better way to portray them other than one of India’s oldest board games. i.e., Ludo. The director of Ludo, Anurag Basu, has created a life-size story with coincidences of ordinary people colliding with each other. A classic comedy, Ludo movie is full of love, expressions, excellent dialogues, and an “out of the box” way of presenting the story.
How much will you enjoy watching Ludo?
Comparing it to the amazement of playing Ludo, this film is a ten on ten. But wait, how did I come to this conclusion? The answer is the result of a simple compound created when one heck of a star cast was mixed with a spectacular script.
On the other hand, the dialogues did an excellent job of keeping the story well-connected. At the same time, we enjoyed the insanely creative acting of Raj Kumar Rao, Abhishek Bachchan, and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Not to forget the girl squad in the film where Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, and Pearle Maaney did an outstanding job at taking hold of the ship whenever needed.
Among all this, there is this one person, particularly India’s and my favorite actor – The Pankaj Tripathi. He has once again shown what can be achieved if you have the guts and the power to do it. The man is no less than a Devil who wears acting, unlike the devil himself. From the first scene to his last, he has been the surge, an uprising of emotions, acting, and limitless comedy.
Another mention that I would love to do is Sundeep Sharma, a very well-known comedian and actor who played one of the goon’s characters in the gang of Rahul Satyendra “Sattu Bhaiya” Tripathi – a character played by Pankaj Ji.
Moving ahead, we cannot miss that little girl who gets herself kidnapped but ends up teaching Abhishek’s character a lesson much needed in his life. Similarly, every story running alongside has its teaching, which makes Ludo film more powerful. Because what could be better than entertaining the audience as well as giving them small-small lessons side by side.
Not forgetting how well the songs in the movie were placed, all of them became instant like. Especially that “Aabaad Barbaad” song. This was sung so beautifully and placed so perfectly that anyone would connect with it immediately. Hats off to the team on that note.
Last but not least, the cameo of Anurag Basu as Yamraj and Rahul Bagga as Devta cannot be overlooked. Initially, you may think that these two characters have different stories in the movie, but you will only find yourself amazed once you realize the opposite.
Does Ludo have anything to be not liked?
Like every review can’t be completed without pointing out negative things, this Ludo review shall do the justice too. Although it seems quite hard to find out things that one would not like yet, I have concluded that –
This movie could have been gained a few more lovers had there been one love story instead of two. I know love stories can never die in Bollywood and the heart of Indians, but the movie was from the offbeat genre; therefore, mixing fewer love stories is always better.
Should You Play, I mean, watch “Ludo?”
Yes, of course. The movie is funnier than its name. Plus, what would you like to have this Diwali, a comedy, or more than that!
By the way, here’s what I tweeted in excitement after watching the movie!
