Kahaani lambi hai, coffee?
Blown by the reviews, stars and all the ga-ga around the movie, I decided to watch Andhadun (not that I leave any film). Ayushmaan, Radhika Apte and Tabu starrer this thriller started with a bang. With Ayushmaan playing the character of blind and oh-not-so-blind struggling piano player moved from the simple roads of Pune to witness a murder. Everything in between the start and the plot was logical and well intertwined. The script kept us engaged and enraptured until the interval.
Post interval the characters loss all the charm. Unnecessary characters, illogical turns, and twists, and worthless drama leeched all the fun from the movie. From a simple murder mystery, the movie went haywire with liver, kidney and cornea smuggling. As the film proceeded, my brain yelled and asked them to stop. I fail to understand why was Radhika Apte’s role cut-short? What was Tabu’s character trying to imply? Why was Ayushmaan a poor soul and victim of every controversy?
The movie could have gained applauds and awards if it was ended close to the intermission itself!
Well, the quote after the credits said: “Life depends on the liver,” which when derived in the movie made it completely irrelevant and nonsensical.
