Ludo Movie Story & Performances:

A multi-narrative movie by Anurag Basu always keeps the audience’s

expectations high. We can easily say that he didn’t disappoint us this

time also. Ludo movie was completely different from “Life In A Metro”

movie but it has its uniqueness in storytelling.


The gangster Sattu Bhaiya(Pankaj Tripathi) killed a person named Bhinder

and kidnapped a few others including Rahul(Rohit Suresh Saraf), who

works as a sales executive. On the way, he also kidnapped Bhanu(Bhanu

Uday), husband of Asha(Asha Negi). Bhanu had to pay 90 lakh to Sattu

Bhaiya but he failed to do so.


Asha is the ex-wife of Bittu(Abhishek Bachchan), and they have a daughter named Ruhi. Once Bittu worked under Sattu Bhaiya but his love for Asha helped him in quitting the job.


Sattu Bhaiya was never happy with Bittu’s decision. He trapped Bittu and

sent him to jail for 6 years. His absence forced Asha to marry Bhanu for a

better future for their daughter.


Akash Chauhan(Aditya Roy Kapur), is a stand-up comedian as well as a

voice artist. He found a video of him and his ex-girlfriend Shruti (Sanya

Malhotra)the lovemaking which went viral.


After searching on Facebook he came to know that Shruti is getting

married soon. To save her life he went to the police station where 

inspector Sukumar Sinha (Ishtiyak Arif Khan) informed him that to

register an FIR, the presence of the girl is mandatory.


Akash went to Shruti’s house and told her everything after showing the

video. She thought he was blackmailing her. Later she agreed and went

to the police station with Akash for registering a complaint.


Alok Kumar Gupta aka Aalu (Rajkummar Rao) from his childhood loves

Pinky(Fatima Sana Shaikh) is crazy. But Pinky got married to Manohar

Jain(Paritosh Tripathi) and they have a son.


Aalu still loves her and he can do everything to make her happy. Manohar’s

sudden changes in lifestyle make Pinky think that he is having an extra

marital affair.


Bittu returned from Jail and came to know from Asha that Sattu Bhaiya has

kidnapped Manohar.


Akash went to Sattu Bhaiya asking for help in deleting that video from the

internet and catching the person who uploaded the video. While Akash was

returning, Bittu arrived there to request Sattu for releasing Manohar.


An explosion in the kitchen occurs where Sattu & Bittu were injured. Bittu

found a little girl Minni, who was searching for her little pet dog Chiku.


Bittu was missing her own daughter very badly and in Minni, he found her

own daughter. The moments he spent with Minni were so precious for Bittu.


Whether we talk about the story, acting, direction, music, or other parts

Ludo movie stands out in every aspect. Like his previous blockbusters,

Anurag Basu succeeded in keeping the audience engaged throughout

the movie.

Final Words:

It will be unfair if we speak about one or two individuals about their

performances here. Almost each and every lead cast provided top-notch

performances which made Ludo movie a must-watch.
