Okay! I know it’s a bit late to be posting this but the reason is simple, I just watched it late. So here’s to my Andhadhun review.
According to me, Andhadhun is yet another wildcard entry into the list of unconventional hits this year. It took the whole suspense-thriller genre to a whole new level and even managed impressing the elitist audience who are used to Hollywood and Netflix.
Even the simplest of the movies have lots of lessons to teach you about people, culture and norms. This is even more absolute in case of a movie like Andhadhun that is complex in terms of its plot and characters. As the mystery unravels, we are also exposed to the psyche of the characters and these subtle lessons teach us about people in general.
Without further adieu, here are some lessons I have learned from Andhadhun and you can too…
1. Imperfections can lead to success
Perfection shouldn’t be the goal, otherwise, it can lead you astray as you become too busy in just assessing yourself and your talent instead of deploying it to your full potential. You need to keep practicing, learning and implementing to master.
2. Mature women have more tendency to go insane
Though Tabu is unhappy with her marriage and gets involved with her boyfriend, but that doesn’t make her that horny women who could get laid with any man around. When things go wrong for her, she handles the situation very cleverly and breaks the hell out of Ayushman Khurana who witnessed her doing the murder of her husband.
3. Fear the observation, not the vision
Obviously, even a child can bifurcate between the sound coming from a device and a person speaking for real. Tabu, blatantly believes that the man on her door is blind, while it is a sense of common belief that blind people have comparatively very higher ability to sense the things happening around.
4. Your talent makes you attractive
Though Akash (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a blind guy, still Sofie (Radhika Apte) finds him attractive because of the melody of his piano tunes. So, it is not just about the looks, your talent does make you attractive.
5. Keep doing what you are good at
Akash (Ayushmann Khurrana) fakes blindness and practices it to perfection, but when things take the wrong turn, he gets exposed and blinded for real by Simi (Tabu). Two years later, when Sophie (Radhika Apte) meets Akash coincidentally in London, she finds that he is now blind for real. Guess what, at the end of the movie we find that Akash is again faking blindness. Crazy isn’t it?
Over to you!
