What it’s about
With Pune as its backdrop, Andhadhun follows the story of Akash (Ayushmann Khurrana) an allegedly blind pianist who dreams of going to London with his unique talent. He accidently meets Sophie (Radhika Apte) and gets a chance to play his music at an upscale restaurant in Pune. Yesteryear’s superstar Pramod Sinha (Anil Dhawan) spots him there and invites him home for a private concert, to play for his wife Simi (Tabu). But things go awry when Akash witnesses a cold blooded murder and becomes a pawn in the whole scenario. What follows is an intense thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Expect the Unexpected
Kudos to director Sriram Raghavan for narrating a thrilling tale with such precision. Despite revealing the killer and the plot of the story within the first half, you will be baffled at the series of events that follow. Expect the unexpected with the constant twists and turns throughout the film. He explores shades of grey in every character, which amps up the suspense. The dark humour in some of the most unexpected scenes is sure to make you laugh.
Andhadhun wonderfully plays on the thought of sight and perception. It prods you to think about believing what you see and closing your eyes off to situations in life. With multiple characters in the film, each scene is a delight to watch as they unfold multiple facets of their personalities. The tight editing ensures that the nail-biting thriller doesn’t lose any momentum even in the second half.
Paying homage to Doordarshan’s Chitrahaar and Chaaya Geet, Andhadhun is the perfect combination of music and nostalgia, coupled with a murder mystery that will leave you amazed.
Take a bow Ayushmann Khurrana! Not missing a single note, he is pitch-perfect in the film. Bringing out his naivety and charm to the role, he manages to impress even in the most demanding scenes. Among the female leads, Radhika Apte plays her character with great ease but it’s Tabu who steals the show! She is so unnervingly brilliant that you’ll love to hate her. The deadly combination of all the supporting characters played by Anil Dhawan, Ashwini Kaleskar, Zakir Hussain and Manav Vij are a perfect fit in this film.
Supriya Says: You can blindly book your tickets for Andhadhun if you want to watch a great film with an equally great dose of suspense!
