AndhaDhun, which clashed with Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain's LoveYatri at the box office, opened to excellent reviews. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave the film four stars out of five and wrote: "The film, an absolute treat for thriller aficionados who like the genre seasoned with wry wit, bears testimony to the director's uncommon storytelling skills on the one hand and his abiding attachment to 1970's Hindi film music on the other."
AndhaDhun is a murder mystery directed by Sriram Raghavan, in which Ayushmann Khurrana plays the role of a visually impaired pianist. The film also stars Radhika Apte and Tabu.
