Critic’s Rating: 3.5/5
Andhadhun Story: Residing in Pune, Aakash a visually impaired piano player (Aayushmann Khurrana) is conscious of a repercussions of a homicide. His inner voice urges him to report the wrongdoing he has in fact not ‘seen’, but rather is there more to him than meets the eye?
Andhadhun Review: Sriram Raghavan is known for his talent of handing out twisty neo-noir, and he satisfies his notoriety with AndhaDhun — a perilously devilish spine chiller with bits of dim satire. Not very many producers figure out how to break this sort and Sriram is proficient at it. His film keenly questions your confidence in ‘witnessing something first hand is the only way to accept something that’s difficult to believe’.
Truly, dazzle heroes make for delectable spine chillers and Raghavan guarantees he doesn’t think twice either. Motivated by a French short film L’Accordeur or The Piano Tuner (2010) by Olivier Treiner, AndhaDhun is a harrowing story of dread, double dealing and wrongdoing that keeps you on the edge of your seat as it prods your psyche. A ‘Shout’ (Hollywood slasher) scene specifically, goes about as an exemplary bounce unnerve.
Gloating of a splendid screenplay and magnificently made account by Raghavan, the story’s bold characters and steady contorts, keep you bolted. Environmental and ill humored, a fundamental dread of what lies ahead grasps your creative energy.
While the principal half is packed with a mix of palpitating pressure, tension and satire in great Raghavan style, the second half droops a bit. The plot gets a bit turbulent and convoluted instead of its fantastic develop. The verbose discussion between characters loosens the pace and backs out the pressure a bit, which you don’t expect by then. Be that as it may, an awesome peak compensates for it.
Ayushmann Khurrana in the number one spot job is a disclosure. While he loans that easy simplicity to each job he depicts, AndaDhun is the most conclusive job of his vocation up until now, that demonstrates his flexibility. Tabu is remarkable as dependably in a clashed job that anticipates that she will be unpredictable, helpless and beguiling. Sairat (Marathi blockbuster) on-screen character Chaya Kadam and Ashwini Kalsekar leave an effect. Yesteryear on-screen character Anil Dhawan shows up and Amit Trivedi’s music gives an eerie edge to the film. The fascinating foundation score adds as an ideal layer to the continuous procedures.
Open to different understandings and unusual from start to finish, AndhaDhun is a drawing in spine chiller that keeps you on your toes and abandons you speculating the distance.
