That apart, but also has a photograph of his idol, Kishore Kumar, placed above his piano. New Delhi: Actress Tabu, who will next be seen in Sriram Raghavan's 'AndhaDhun', alongside Ayushmann Khurrana, unveiled a new poster of the film on Monday. A crooked cop, often at the wrong place at the wrong time, is a past master at bending the rules and getting away with it.
What he does, most ingeniously, is to insert an unexpected character into the situation, and have things unravel from there on. Sometimes the music of Amit Trivedi cuts in, at other times it is Beethoven. Unfortunately in India Tabu and movies like Andhadhun are not publicised or get the awards they deserve. The script was written by Raghavan, Arijit Biswas, Pooja Ladha Surti, Yogesh Chandekar. The film had garnered rave reviews from the critics and the audience alike at the box office. An earnest young man who swears on his piano keys while invoking Goddess Saraswati, Akash is no typically hardboiled noir hero.
But as it happens too often in Hindi cinema, the energy takes a beating post-interval. This is a damnably hard film to write about without giving some games away. But there is nothing random in this intelligently paced and structured crime drama that pans out against an intriguing interplay of sights and sounds. The performances are uniformly solid. Film Companion is a celebration of the movies. As he plays the piano, a dead body is disposed of. The film will release with the title 'Piano Player' in China, which is emerging as a significant market for Indian mainstream films.
Check out Andhadhun's trailer here: 'Andhadhun' is an upcoming Indian mystery thriller film and also stars Radhika Apte in a key role. Note this: Wednesday business is higher than Mon and Tue business. It careens in a different direction shocking the viewers and demanding their attention. He gives the answer himself — it all depends on the liver. Viacom18 Studios along with Eros International has now partnered with Tang Media Partners to release the thriller in China.
He deserves all the success and more. It is for the first time that Raghavan's film is releasing in China and the director is suitably excited to present his film to a new audience. Nobody seems to be sitting judgement in this film and no one is given a back story to validate their sordid actions. In keeping with so many of his characters, Raghavan learns from the movies. Or maybe he used her cornea after she died.
Singer Amit Trivedi, Raftaar and Girish Nakod added the hit music to the film and the lyrics were written by Jaideep Sahni. And despite the loopholes in the script, you never give up on this twisted, dark bunch as they happily plummet to their dark depths. I loved when Akash, tied to a chair, looks into the distance and plaintively says the classic Sholay line — Itna sannata kyun hai bhai. The instrument gives the film a lush soundscape all right but, in keeping with the spirit of the twisted tale, the sensations it triggers, underscores or accompanies are deliberately askew. Sannata hai because the bodies are piling up.
It's a world in which nothing can be taken from granted, be it living, dying, killing, seeing, believing, imagining, pretending or playacting. But what if the whole accident never took place? In an interview with Mid Day, Tabu talked about Andhadun's success and how she feels as an actor to do such films. Has there ever been a femme as fatal as Tabu? Let's work together to keep the conversation civil. . While the first half moves at a thrillingly rapid pace, the second half has some ludicrous plot twists that make you wonder about who let these mad hatters out? What a delicious, despicable performance. Radhika Apte, playing markedly less tortured than she has been in most of her recent screen outings, is effortlessly pitch-perfect.
But when did he get his vision back? It has a killer plot and some unsavoury souls thrown in for good measure. The story takes a turn when she is caught disposing of her husband's body in front of a presumably blind pianist Akash. The actress revealed that these people were gasping, shrieking and even laughing at some scenes in the film. A rabbit plays a key role. There's a price to be paid for every shot in the dark.
Sriram Raghavan is a visionary director and I'm thrilled to see the love his film has been getting. A dapper Akash literally crashes into an amiable and winsome Radhika Apte and sparks fly between the good-looking pair. Ten years back, on a visit to China, I walked into a Beijing Cafe and was zapped to see Nasir Husain's 'Caravan' playing on a big screen. Directed by Sriram Raghavan and also starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Radhika Apte, the film was called one of the best films of 2018. We must remember Alfred Hitchcock made funny films.
