Mumbai: ‘O son ji, o babu ji, kismat ki hawa kabhi hot kabhi soft, kabhi hot naram garam soft soft.’ – This is a dialogue from the 1951 film ‘Albela’ and Anurag Basu’s Ludo once again reminded people of it. has given. This song has been used to give a good twist to the story. In Ludo, each character carries a past, but at the same time, the story of his present also moves along. We look at the story from the perspective of director Anurag Basu, where thinking too much can confuse you.
The film, with a duration of 2-29 hours, follows four different stories. Although it is also fun in many ways, as in a game where four players race their tokens from the start, as the name suggests, much depends on the luck of the points, as in a game of dice. That is, a lot also goes to the account of luck and coincidence.
Character of Pankaj Tripathi: Coming to the story, one person, who is central to it, is Rahul Satyendra Tripathi (Pankaj Tripathi), fondly called Sattu Bhaiya. He is a criminal who has overcome death in the past. Not once, but Sattu managed to escape death six times.
Other roles and actors: Other stories are of Batukeshwar Tiwari (Abhishek Bachchan), called Bittu, who was a close associate of Sattu, but no longer. Dr. Akash Chauhan (Aditya Roy Kapur) who has a PhD in Mongolian and Mughal architecture. Alok Kumar Gupta (Rajkumar Rao), a cinema fan who runs his own restaurant and Rahul Awasthi (Rohit Kumar Shroff), who works in a mall.
Though all stories are different, they have one thing in common – a thread of love running through them all. Bittu leaves the world of crime and Sattu to live in peace with his love (Asha Negi) and daughter Roohi. Akash is in a relationship with Shruti (Sanya Malhotra), whose only dream is to find a rich husband. Alok Kumar Gupta is, in fact, madly in love with his school friend Pinky (Fatima Sana Shaikh), who is also a married woman and mother of a child.
Performance-wise, there is no actor who has disappointed too much and has missed the mark. Pankaj Tripathi as Sattu Bhaiya is as amazing as ever and has done justice to the role. They do not need words to express their thoughts, sometimes even gestures say a lot.
Abhishek’s character Bittu is filled with anger, resentment, and emotions and the actor does not give up. In Tripathi’s case, Abhishek has also tried to go beyond words to express his feelings. Rajkumar is also entertaining the audience a lot in the role.
Ludo could turn out to be a commendable feat for Anurag Basu to be able to tell the stories of these many characters and do justice to most of them. Most of the impressive scenes are, in fact, without dialogue. The focus is on gestures, expressions and exchanges more than the characters’ speech.
