AndhaDhun Movie Review Faster: AndhaDhun which was titled early as Shoot the pianist Akash (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a pianist in the making. Stuck with an incomplete piece, he finds inspiration to finish it. Another parallel track is that of Simi (Tabu) who wants to become an actress.
The film begins with Ayushmann playing his incomplete 90-second piece on the piano. He accidentally meets Sophie (Radhika Apte) who then helps her play in a club. There, he was noticed by an actor of old, Pramod Sinha, that he calls for private sessions for him and his wife, Simi.
The whole mystery of whether Ayushmann is blind or not is treated brilliantly by Raghavan. Backed by an outstanding performance from Ayushmann Khurrana, the first half is rich in moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Another thing to note about the film is his writing (Sriram Raghavan, Arijit Biswas, Yogesh Chandekar and Pooja Ladha Surti). Punny dialogues only add to perfection. Radhika Apte gets some of the best dialogue and she totally does justice. Tabu, always beautiful, is brilliant like Simi and she gets the most stratified character of all.
AndhaDhun marks the first collaboration of Raghavan and the actor Aayushmann Khurrana. Ayushmann, who plays the role of a blind pianist artist, recently stated that he was much prepared to enter the character's skin. "I think I have not been in such a difficult scenario and I have not played any character so difficult in any of my films." WHAT IS TOTALLY TRUE!
The story was written by Arijit Biswas, Pooja Ladha Surti, Yogesh Chandekar and Raghavan. The film, released Friday, presents Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte. Stick to this space for a complete review!
