The most powerful movie not only with a smart storyline but robust, persuasive performances are the backbone of Wazir. Movie plot and the screenplay are at its best. The twist in the movie is really unexpected. The most fascinating part lies in the fact that it is a vengeance drama but the lead characters are not angry. They are cold-blooded in their evasive planning and excellent pursuit. “Galat chaal was Nahi le Sakta,” and Panditji retorts, “Yahi to farak hai shatranj aur Zindagi Mein, yaha dusra mauka milta hai,” a smiling Danish and some smart moves on the chess board ensure the scene is not bogged down by the heaviness of the dramatic dialogues.

On the whole, ANDHADHUN is a thriller par excellence. Very rarely does Bollywood deliver a thriller that shocks and stuns you so well. The thrust of the story, however, is what happens if the only witness to a crime happens to be visually impaired? Through this prism one now views the actions of the perpetrators, the witness, the police, the opportunists. Raghavan crafts a brilliant scene. As crisp, cunning and wicked as the first half is, in the second half, as new characters are introduced, the twists go from clever and unexpected to gratuitous and expendable. Thankfull to the brilliant cast like Ayushman khurana, Tabu etc
