Story In Detail:
Akash (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a blind pianist who is in search of a perfect ‘dhun’. He has a black-and-white cat for company who occasionally even doubles up as a listener for his musical pieces. Till one fine day, he literally crashes into the winsome Sophie (Radhika Apte) by ‘accident’. Sparks fly; but at the same time, some terrific revelations are made to the audience.
On the other hand, Pramod Sinha aka Pammi (Anil Dhawan) is a a yesteryear Bollywood star who has actual movie posters of his past films lining his room and who derives guilty pleasure from scrolling through YouTube videos of his films and admiring the comments underneath them. His much-younger wife Simi (Tabu) harbours aspirations of her own.
As the events unfold, Aakash finds himself playing a cheerful melody on the piano with a dead body lying in the same room. The more he tries to go away from the it, the more he gets entangled in the mess and the morals go for a toss with treachery and trickery walking hand-in-hand.
The movie is produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures Pvt. Ltd. and is distributed by the same entity. K U Mohanan has wielded the camera for Andhadhun.
