ENGAGING, ENTHRALLING AND constantly taking you by SURPRISE!
After what seems like ages, here's a flick that I cannot keep away from eulogising! Oh, what an entertainer!
Honestly, I hadnâ€™t watched the trailer before watching the flick and so, there existed a complete blank slate in my mind with the least preconceived notion about it. Only when I watched it could I acknowledge what a marvel was carved out of a simple plot. The story begins with a simple man, apparently blind, who plays people by bluff while playing piano at a restaurant only to realise how his life turns turtle one fine day when life throws a curve ball and his bluff acts against him. How the story unfolds, and the mystery unravels is for you to decipher and find out!
Not only would I not want to disclose the least bit of the story, I would want each of you readers to not read about it from any source, so as to experience every moment of the twist first-hand!
While mystery movies are a difficult genre for a simple fact that every member of the audience suddenly gets his Sherlock cap on to decode every other step, Andhadhun would pretty much prove you wrong with your imagination and predicted sequences while taking you aback every now and then.
This flick has turned out only to enunciate with greater emphasis that the director Sriram Raghavan has provided to his audience with yet another film they would take a smile back from, out of shear amazement at how the movie unrolls.
Well, if there is one thing I could take back from the movie apart from the breath-taking plot, it was the acting of the cast! There, truly, couldnâ€™t have been a better cast and you got to trust me on the fact that Ayushmann Khurrana, who I wasnâ€™t really that great a fan of initially, had swept me off my feet with his performance. Words fall short at expressing how this underdog has made his mark with this performance of his and with it, I truly appreciate his gamut of drastically different roles and out of the box characters.
Tabu has always charmed her audience and Andhadhun, post Haider, has yet again fascinated despite a negative character with a charismatic performance.
A mix of comedy, thrill and mystery, Andhadhun is the movie you have been wanting to watch and is finally here for you to have your thinking caps on and satiate the curiosity for an amazing and a thrilling watch!
I give Andhadhun 4 out of 5 stars!
