Andhadhun (2018)

Aayushmann Khurrana: As Aakash, in the lead role he is a revelation. While he lends that effortless ease to every role he portrays, AndaDhun is the most definitive role of his career so far, that proves his versatility.

Tabu: Tabu is outstanding as always in a conflicted role that expects her to be erratic, vulnerable and deceitful.

Anil Dhawan: He makes a memorable appearance and Amit Trivedi’s music gives a haunting edge to the film.

STORY: Residing in Pune, Aakash a blind pianist is privy to an aftermath of a murder. His conscience urges him to report the crime he has technically not ‘witnessed’, but is there more to him than meets the eye?

CINEMATOGRAPHY: Classic

SCREENPLAY: Brilliant

DIRECTION: Sriram Raghavan is known for his knack of dishing out twisty neo-noir, and he lives up to his reputation with AndhaDhun — a dangerously wicked thriller with dollops of dark comedy. Very few filmmakers manage to crack this genre and Sriram is adept at it. His film smartly questions your faith in ‘seeing is believing’. Honestly, blind protagonists make for scrumptious thrillers and Raghavan ensures he doesn’t miss a beat either.

Andhadhun: AndhaDhun is a nerve-wracking tale of fear, deceit and crime, that keeps you on the edge of your seat as it teases your mind.
