Reel Suspects of France to release Q's latest film

NEW DELHI: Ludo, the latest Indian fantasy thriller film directed by Q and Nikon - who have often got noticed for the bold content of their films – will be released internationally by international sales agent and distribution company Reel Suspects.


The film is in the final phase of its post-production but featured in the Paris-based Reel Suspects catalogue at the Cannes Film Festival this year.


Ludo tells the story of four desperate teenagers who decide to live one fateful night in the big city but are soon horny and broke. After all their attempts to get a hotel room fail they hide inside a gigantic shopping mall. Inside the mall, all their plans go haywire, as an old couple appears from nowhere and invites them to play a simple but deadly game called Ludo, and then a night of terror begins.


It has been produced by Idyabooster and Starfire Movies and is also co-produced by Q's production house, OddJoint. Director duo Q and Nikon are confident they will bring new cinema experience to the viewers through the film as it will reshape the thriller and horror genre in India presenting a product that is truly global and targets international markets as well.


Q said, “I am very excited that Reel Suspects have picked up our movie as with their expertise and deep network of selling films across varied genres, we are really excited about being represented across a wide spectrum of buyers and markets internationally.”


Reel Suspects CEO Matteo Lovadina added, “I am really happy to work on this project, and have been involved with the film from the time it was at the idea stage. It is a rare feature film with a powerful cinematic experience and we have not come across many horror productions from India, certainly none with the solid aesthetics that Ludo has woven in its narrative and presentation by mixing tradition and avant-garde, Nikon and Q have delivered a fabulous product. We are confident that the will find its place in the international circuit and we are currently working to find the perfect international premiere for the film and the results will be known soon.”
