Ludo Movie Trailer
In the movie various characters being introduced over the course of time, only to cross paths towards a nail-biting conclusion. However, the story focuses on a dreaded criminal who forms the central character the entire film revolves around Sheeja Thomas (Pearle Maaney), an ambitious nurse newly arrived in north India from Kerala. Batukeshwar Tiwari aka Bittu Bhaiyya (Abhishek Bachchan) has just been released from jail and is mourning the loss of his wife (Asha Negi) and child to another man. When Pinky (Fatima Sana Shaikh) runs into trouble, she has a tendency to turn to her former lover, Alok Kumar Gupta aka Aalu (Rajkummar Rao), for help although she is married to another man. And Akash Chauhan (Aditya Roy Kapur) is a voice-over artist and ventriloquist-comedian in love with Shruti Choksi (Sanya Malhotra) who reciprocates his feelings but is determined to marry only a rich man.
Throw into this mix a homeless salesperson (Rohit Suresh Saraf), infidelity, a porn clip, an unsuspecting fiancé, and a kidnap plan gone awry, and the potential for a comedy of errors is evident.
Even after a lot of characters, everybody gets enough screen time and none outshines the other. They bring thrill, feelings, drama, and love into the 150 minutes of run-time, a bit prolonged but worth it. Each star has delivered a dazzling efficiency. Abhishek Bachchan’s agony will bring tears to your eyes. Without a lot of dialogues, he expresses the pain of his character with terrific depth. Aditya Roy Kapoor is ever-so-charming. His selflessness melts your heart. Sanya Malhotra communicates the conflict of a small-town woman with enormous dreams, an identifiable character for many. Fatima Sana Shaikh as a doting other half will bring a smile to your face. Rohit Saraf and Pearle Maaney are amusing.
Nevertheless, the two who steal the show are Pankaj Tripathi and Rajkummar Rao. Their comic timing is impressive. Pankaj as the bad guy is in complete form and Rajkummar as a Mithun clone proves his mettle yet again. A bundle of surprise is the youngest member of the cast Inayat Verma as Mini.
