A blind pianist who is an optimist meets the love of his life and he feels that his life has changed, but his life changes for worse when he is hired by a rich man for his skills on the piano to please his wife and becomes a witness of the murder. Through all this turmoil he is also suspicioned of faking being a blind man and this is all according to the released trailer. Revealing anything more than this would be considered as SPOILER which is a punishable offence nowadays.
Watch the trailer here:
Andhadhun’s director Sriram Raghavan is Bollywood’s, Guy Ritchie. Arijit Biswas, Yogesh Chandekar, Sriram Raghavan and Pooja Ladha Surti’s script is airtight and every sequence, scene, shot or frame has a purpose and i.e to either make us laugh or make shock us. Ayushmann Khurrana plays the blind guy convincingly, Radhika Apte is used like salt; swaad anusaar. Tabu steals the show even though it was Ayushmann’s center stage.
In hindsight, Andhadhun can be Sholay of its genre.
We give AndhaDhun 3 buzzing bees or will we betray them.
