The movie opened across 5,000 screens in China and has even overtaken Shazam in the highest grossing movies list in China. This is in a similar fashion to its release in India, where it received massive reception from the audiences. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave AndhDhun a four-star rating and wrote in his review for NDTV that the film is an “intelligently paced and structured crime drama.”
AndhaDhun is the story of Akash (Ayushmann) a pianist, who pretends to be visually impaired. His life takes a tumultuous turn when he witnesses a murder at the hands of Simi (Tabu) and her lover Manohar Jawanda (Manav Vij). Akash then loses his eye-sight for real, after Simi suspects that Akash was pretending to be blind.
