How do you explain the ending of the Andhadhun movie of Ayushmann Khurrana?
Andhadhun is a black-comedy crime thriller film (neo-noir themed).
Since you won’t see my answer at the top because I joined the party quite late, therefore I assume you have already come across the various theories above.
The most popular opinions which I have seen (at the time of writing this answer) are:
- Aakash was drugged and made blind, but in one eye
- Aakash went ahead with the Doc’s plan, and the fabricated narrative of the rabbit incident in the end with Sophie was just to get hold of her emotions
The top answer said,
- “he was actually blinded in only 1 eye, and was pretending that he is completely blind…”
- the accident actually happened that’s why he could see the rabbit, and made a stick to its tribute
But this answer didn’t state how Aakash got his cornea transplants.
Unknown Facts about Andhadhun, The Movie
1. Ayushmann Khurrana’s Casting Swap
The film’s original star was intended to be Harshvardhan Kapoor, but Ayushmann Khurrana’s interest in the project led to a change in casting. Ayushmann’s commitment to the role of the blind pianist Aakash led him to take piano lessons from scratch, even though he had no prior knowledge of playing the instrument.
2. Learning the Piano
Ayushmann Khurrana’s dedication to his role extended to learning the piano. Despite not knowing how to play the instrument initially, he took piano lessons to authentically portray the blind pianist’s character. Interestingly, his commitment to learning the piano influenced his son, who also took an interest in the instrument.
3. Studying Blind Characters
To convincingly portray a blind character, Ayushmann Khurrana studied the performances of actors who played blind roles in other films. He drew inspiration from the performances of Naseeruddin Shah in “Sparsh,” Audrey Hepburn in “Wait Until Dark,” and Al Pacino in “Scent Of A Woman.”
4. Inspiration from a French Short Film
Contrary to popular belief, “Andhadhun” was not an entirely original concept. It was based on a French short film called “The Piano Tuner.” However, Sriram Raghavan transformed the original idea into a unique and gripping narrative that resonated with audiences.
5. The Scriptwriting Journey
Initially, the script of “Andhadhun” was supposed to be written by filmmaker Hemanth Rao, a friend of Sriram Raghavan. However, due to his own commitments, Hemanth couldn’t write the script. Sriram started writing it himself but paused upon learning about another film with a blind hero, “Kaabil.” Eventually, he decided to continue writing, embracing the concept of multiple films with blind protagonists.
6. Release of Malayalam Version
Amazon Prime Video released “Bhramam,” the Malayalam version of “Andhadhun,” during the same week as the original film’s release. This decision served as a tribute to the excellence of the original and allowed audiences to experience the story in a different language.
