Movie Review: Andhadhun: One of the intelligent Bollywood movies! ***½

1705th BLOG POST -->>

Watching Salman Khan’s movies have stagnated our IQ level such that when a movie like Andhadhun releases to take our cinema to the next level, around 90% of the audiences are unable to understand its complexity. I was one of them when I had left the theatre last week with my friend after watching the movie. After lot of brainstorming and talking with some more people who had seen the movie, we understood its thrilling climax. The story is the hero in this movie which does not let you feel that the movie is losing itself. After seeing what is happening in front of you, as an audience you are confused about what exactly shall be shown in the climax and where the movie shall end at. But when the climax finally ends, it leaves you with so much of an interpretation, questions and what not that the actual movie starts for you after it ends.

The first half of the movie is very tight with the character of Ayushmann Khurrana getting into one act after another and revealing secrets to us about his reality as a blind character. Sometimes, you agree that he is blind and sometimes you do not. That is where the specialty of the movie lies in. The murder scene that is executed while he is playing the piano is one of the special scenes seen after a long time in a Bollywood movie. The second half starts slowly as the characters are confined in a four walled space but post that again in the 2nd part of the second half, the movie picks up and the way climax is shot leaves you overwhelmed.

Talking about the performances, Ayushmann Khurrana has delivered one of his best performances and as per me, surely his best undoubtedly. The way he carries his character throughout the movie with ease looks so effortless that you are unable to believe that he is not blind in real life. Radhika Apte is again her charming self with her unique style where she does not shy away from slapping kid for irritating her. Tabu is the person who hold the movie well in parts where Ayushmann is not playing the major part. Tabu has executed her negative character so well that you want to applaud her specially after the movie. Rest, all the supporting starcast are wonderful and play their part perfectly. This movie is a very well-written and directed movie for which Sriram Raghavan should be commended. This movie gets 3.5 stars out of 5.

Dear Abhilash, with so much technical advances in crime detection, this one of the weak movies... compare to Jewel Thief, Teesri Manzil, Khamosh etc...Same was the case with Drishyam...In those days technologies were primitive...But now you have to be logical with latest technological developments... However I can say that movie was captivating... Appreciate your wonderful analysis...👍👍👍
