For the uninitiated, AndhaDhun is packed with hairpin bends and black comedy that centres on a seemingly harmless lie, the faking of disability, that unravels in spectacular fashion for a pianist, his girlfriend, a former actor, his wife and her lover, and a trio of organ harvesters. Akash, a piano player pretending to be visually-impaired, unwittingly becomes entangled in a number of problems as he witnesses the murder of a former film actor.
