Ludo | Chicago Reader


Anurag Basu’s ambitious and wide-ranging epic Ludo has it all. A caper to take down a resurfaced sex tape? Check. An ex-con reconnecting with his daughter? Check. Ventriloquism? Check. A gangster boss and a suitcase of money that somehow ties it all together? Check. There’s clearly a lot going on in Ludo—which takes its name and visual inspiration from the popular board game—but it is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. Over the course of its extensive runtime, Ludo follows four different relationships and how they intersect with one another without ever feeling long-winded or bloated. The joy of Ludo is all the more heightened by its eclectic cast, rhythmic pacing, and lively editing sensibilities—and hopefully signals a sustainable future for Netflix’s recent foray into producing Indian films.
