International films have created a strong buzz this year at the Cannes Festival and ‘Ludo’ with its unique treatment and narrative has got excellent response from prospective buyers and sales agents.
With ‘Ludo’, director duo and long time associates Q and Nikon, are confident of bringing a whole new cinema experience to the audience. The film is poised to reshape the landscape of thriller cinema in Bengal and present a global product to the international markets as well.
‘Ludo’ is the latest film by director Q, who made the critically acclaimed and controversial film ‘Gandu’, which was banned from a theatrical release in India but became a cult phenomenon, both in India and across the globe. Q’s films have always found festival and critical appreciation internationally, with BBC calling him the ‘most subversive Indian filmmaker’.

The film is being produced by Celine Loop.
‘Ludo’ is being made under the banner of OverdoseJoint, Q’s production house, a progressive art platform making original films, music and design and is co-produced by Idyabooster and Starfire Movies.
