The film has not only been performing well at the box office in China, it even surpassed its India box office total within six days of its release there. If that's not impressive, we don't know what is. Take a look at Taran Adarsh's tweet here:

AndhaDhun's success at the Chinese box office doesn't come as much of a surprise to us as the film opened to great reviews from film critics. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave AndhaDhun four stars out of five and he described the film as an "intelligently paced and structured crime drama."
AndhaDhun showcases the twisted story of visually impaired man (played by Ayushmann Khurrana). The film also stars Tabu as the antagonist, while Radhika Apte played the Ayushmann's love-interest in the film.
