Ludo starts with two people contemplating life and death and they decide to play ludo. The game they play correlates to the lives of Sattu Bhaiya, Akash, Alu and Bittu.
Sattu Bhaiya is a notorious gangster who has to settle old scores with Bittu, who was once his right-hand man. Sattu Bhaiya becomes the dice of Ludo and Bittu forms the red side in Ludo.
Akash and Shruti form the yellow side. They find that someone has recorded a video of their affair and have uploaded it to the Internet. Then they start the race to find the culprit and take down the video before Shruti’s would-be husband finds out.
The blue side is formed by Sheeja Thomas and Rahul Avasthi. Sheeja is a Malayali nurse who speaks only Malayalam while Rahul is a struggling young man from a small town being bullied by his boss. They find the treasure of Sattu Bhaiya and the gang chases them while they try to escape with the money.
The green side is formed by Alu and his school sweet heart Pinky. Pinky’s husband becomes a suspect in a murder case and she seeks help from Alu to save him.
These four stories become entangled in a series of events, leading to an engaging climax where all four sides are present.
