Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Mixed!


1. Mumbai Mirror -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
While Anurag Basu is no Guy Ritchie or Alejandro González Iñárritu, the filmmaker has excelled in elevating heartfelt, simplistic stories merely through his telling, compelling score and visual flourishes. But here, he’s surely punching above his weight and the complex construct may not fly with many. Though he manages to tie-up the loose ends by the climax, the question remains, how many will make it till there.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
If only Ludo too would live up to the promise of its zany premise. 'Ludo is life. Life is Ludo,' spouts Basu in its opening scene. The comparison may have sounded cool in his head, but it doesn't translate in the madcap movie he intended it to be.

3. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Still, in this time of corona, the virus finding an honourable mention in the movie, we could do with some fun and games, even if it slackens in bits. Basu is also a dab hand at using music in his movies: the perky musical interludes tell a story of their own. A six can be a nine, and yes, a strike can take you straight to the gates of heaven. Throw that dice.

4. The Hindu -

Rating Score -> n/a
It is not that the story arcs of Ludo are exceptional, but the “extraordinary” circumstances in which the characters find themselves trapped and the way Basu evokes humour from their helplessness, are. And they are outrageously funny, often veering between a black comedy and a musical drama.

5. DNA -

Rating Score -> 3/5
This is Anurag Basu's second anthology after Life in a Metro (2007) which focussed on love, extramarital affair, old-age love and more. But Ludo is all about Karma, luck, chance and fate. It shows us relationships are conditional, no matter how hard you try being in a denial mode.

6. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
For a film that gets so much right, the only jarring note is the title itself. ‘Life is Ludo and Ludo is life,’ the film’s director tells us at the beginning, as he plays the game while wearing a chihuahua of a fake beard. For a game that was at best a ‘time pass’ during the dreary lockdown, that level of commitment is indeed commendable.

7. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 3/5
One of the male characters in Ludo admits to his friends: "Kuch rishton mein logic nahi hota, sirf magic hota hai." Absolutely! Think of Ludo as a ride with more magic than logic and you will probably find it worth some, if not all, of your love. Give the game a shot.

8. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3/5
'Ludo' has some moments that sparkle, some that are edgy, quirky and stay with you, but it also has some indulgent ones and some that seem pointless and unconvincing. The screenplay (Anurag Basu) gets scattered and meanders mid-way but if one can ride over those bumps (with a runtime of two and a half hours that may seem like a tad much), the climax ties everything up rather neatly, with some quintessential badass quotient and surprises thrown in. Watch this one for the noteworthy performances and its interesting mix of morally ambiguous characters. Ultimately 'Ludo' tries to make a larger point about not judging anyone for the choices they make.

9. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
On the whole, Ludo is an engaging entertainer. Good performances, interesting narration and melodious music are its plus points while its length (which could’ve been shortened) is a minus point. It will find fair appreciation. While classes will like the film, the audience which comprised front-benchers among the cinema-going public will not find it very interesting. The film will get critical acclaim too. Had it released in the cinemas, it would have done very well in the multiplexes of the big cities.
