The film's story is based on a mystery which ultimately retains suspense among people. In the film, Ayushmann Khurrana plays the role of a blind man for the first time in his career. He will be seen in the role of a blind musician.

'Andhadhun' is a story which talks about the life of a blind person who plays the piano and one day who meets Radhika Apte. Ayushman and Radhika begin to spend time with each other. Meanwhile, Tabu enters in the film and completely changes the life of the blind musician. His conscience urges him to report this inspite of the fact that he hasn't witnessed. There are speculations that the audience will love this film too. Though, Bollywood doesn’t do thrillers well. But, Sriram Raghavan is the man who is the only exception and his latest, Andhadhun is an example.

Story: Aakash (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a blind pianist who is in search of a perfect dhun and is practicing hard to get one. Simi (Tabu) is a cop always being in the wrong place at the wrong time and is married to Pramod Sinha (Dhawan) who is a yesteryear-star. The film is full of different shades of grey and no one seems innocent. Aakash meets Sophie (Radhika Apte) who is an owner of a restaurant and gets intrigued by the blind musician(Ayushmann). Akash and Sophie fall in love for each other. There comes Dhawan to play his part. He asks Aakash to give Simi a surprise piano recital on their wedding anniversary and the story actually begins.

Performance: Tabu is too good to words in the film. She is perfectly fit in her role. Ayushmann Khurana is marvelously superb for the character. Earlier, it looks he isn't perfect for the role, but once he gets under Akash’s skin, nothing could stop him. While talking about Dhawan, he too adds more stars to the film. His character of yesteryear star makes you smile, especially when 'Yeh Jeevan Hai' starts up.

All in all, the film is an engaging thriller which successfully keeps you on your toes to guess what is going to be next.
