What a story
Anurag has himself become the narrator in the film. There are stories of four main characters. Bittu (Abhishek Bachchan) is happy with his wife (Asha Negi), also with daughter. But suddenly he is imprisoned, his wife marries a friend of his, Bittu yearns to meet his daughter, so there is a twist in his story when he collides with another child. Alok Gupta aka Aloo (Rajkummar Rao) is crazy about Pinky (Fatima Sana Sheikh), but gets married to someone else. Pinky’s husband (Paritosh Tripathi) has an affair with another girl. As an incident occurs, Alok returns to Pinky’s life. Rahul (Rohit), Sreeja (Pearl Mane) both collide after a strange accident, these two names who are under dogs suddenly try to become heroes. Akash (Aditya) is a voice artist, he meets Ahana (Sanya) on the wedding site, then the two get closer, a video of them goes viral and then the two come closer. And they all link together
Rahul Satyendra alias Sattu Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) Who is a big don and has plagued everyone’s life. He gets hurt in an accident, and he reaches the hospital, where he meets his nurse Lata (Shalini). Who did not get what in this whole story, what villain among the Kauravas and the Pandavas, why did Yudhishthira see Duryodhana in hell, just as the references are made to the old Mahabharata. Since Ludo (Chaucer’s) reference came from the Mahabharata itself, it may have been the reason that Anurag was trying to show it in a new way. But not a single story is new in the entire film, nor are the characters properly defined. Nobody sees a connection in their love story. Anurag, however, has taken a jibe at the government and the system in a light manner. He has liked that style.
Treatment of the story is well kept. He is different.
What is bad
The style of Anurag Basu is absurd, the dialogues are not understood, no story or new reason is shown in any story. Characters do not connect at all. Complicated story. Is completely scattered. The film is no longer a dark comedy. Anurag has put the entire game of Ludo well, but has not been able to accommodate it properly.
Baji is Rajkummar Rao this time, as Aloo, the dedication he showed for his childhood love is unique, his character throughout the film is fun. Fatima Sana, Sanya Malhotra are on their old ways. Especially Sanya should do a little different type of films now. Abhishek Bachchan is in a kind of expression throughout the film. Being an artist like Pankaj Tripathi, Anurag has not brought out the strangeness in his character. Rohit, Pearl and Shalini Vats have also done well in a short time. Paritosh Tripathi has also revived in a small role.
Verdict: It is difficult that the film will be liked by the audience.
