Andhadhun (lit. Blind Tune; Hindi pronunciation: [əndʱaːdʱʊn]) is a 2018 Indian black comedy crime thriller film co-written and directed by Sriram Raghavan. Produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures, the film stars Tabu, Ayushmann Khurrana and Radhika Apte and tells the story of a piano player who unwittingly becomes embroiled in the murder of a former film actor. Its script was written by Raghavan, Arijit Biswas, Pooja Ladha Surti, Yogesh Chandekar and Hemanth Rao. The film was edited by Surti, and K. U. Mohanan was its director of photography. Amit Trivedi, Raftaar and Girish Nakod wrote its music, and Jaideep Sahni the lyrics.
Hemanth Rao (a friend of Raghavan) suggested in 2013 that he watch L'Accordeur (The Piano Tuner), a 2010 French short film about a blind pianist. Raghavan liked the film, and decided to work on a script based on it. Khurrana was cast in the lead role after he contacted Raghavan and expressed an interest in working with him. The film was shot in 44 days over more than a year in Pune; principal photography began in June 2017, and ended on 17 July 2018.
Andhadhun was released theatrically on 5 October 2018 to widespread acclaim, with critics highlighting Khurrana and Tabu's performances. Produced on a budget of ₹32 crore, the film grossed over ₹111 crore at the box office.

Akash (Ayushmann Khurrana), a pianist who pretends to be blind during the day, is attempting to finish a musical piece. He lives with his cat and often encounters a young neighbour who tries to see if he is really blind. Akash is knocked over while crossing the road by Sophie (Radhika Apte), who is awed by his talent and gets him an engagement at her father's diner (where he is noticed by former actor Pramod Sinha (Anil Dhawan). Pramod is married to Simi (Tabu), and invites Akash to his apartment to perform for their wedding anniversary. Sophie and Akash begin a relationship. When Akash arrives at Sinha's flat, Simi opens the door and is reluctant to let him in; she does when she sees her neighbour, Mrs. D'Sa, watching them. Simi, convinced that Akash is blind, lets him play the piano. Akash sees a body nearby, but feigns ignorance and continues to play; he also sees Inspector Manohar (Manav Vij) hiding in the bathroom. When he returns to the piano, he identifies the body as Sinha's. Simi and Manohar quietly clean the body and stuff it into a suitcase while Akash plays.
Akash then tries to report the murder, but discovers that Manohar is an inspector at the police station. Simi kills Mrs D'Sa in Akash's presence (who is forced to continue feigning ignorance of the murders), since she saw Manohar enter the flat. Akash admits faking his blindness when Simi pours poison into his coffee in front of him. Although he says that he will leave for London (and Simi's secret is safe with him), she drugs him anyway. Sophie sees that the young neighbour recorded a video of Akash acting like a sighted person. When she checks on him, Simi arranges things to look like she and Akash are sleeping together. Furious and heartbroken, Sophie leaves Akash. He wakes up, and realises that he cannot see. Simi and Manohar decide that blinding Akash would not be enough (since he could still reveal details), so Manohar returns to Akash's home to finish the job. Akash struggles his way to the road, faints and is brought to a clinic which is a front for illicit organ harvesting.
Dr. Swami (Zakir Hussain) and his two assistants, Murli and Sakhu, decide to spare Akash and help him obtain the money needed to reverse his blindness. They kidnap Simi, stage a suicide scene, and blackmail Manohar into bringing money; however, Murli and Sakhu double-cross Akash and tie him up with Simi to get the money themselves. Manohar shoots Murli, but is trapped in an elevator and accidentally shoots himself. The money is revealed to be counterfeit. Desperate, Akash removes Simi's blindfold after she helps him free himself. He tries to escape, while Simi frees herself and attacks him. Dr. Swami enters; he and Akash knock Simi out, tie her up in the trunk of a car and drive. Swami reveals his plan to harvest Simi's organs for ₹60 million (since she has a rare blood type) and pay for Akash's corneal transplant (which Akash declines).
Two years later in Europe, Sophie meets Akash (who still appears blind) at a gig. He tells her that Simi awakened in the trunk and began making noise; when Swami stopped the car, she overpowered him and seized the wheel. Akash, thinking that Swami was still driving, continued trying to convince him to let Simi go. She dropped Akash off and tried to run him over; when a ricocheting bullet fired by a farmer at a hare shattered the windscreen, she lost control of the car and was killed in the crash. Sophie tells Akash that he should have accepted the doctor's offer and used Simi's corneas to restore his sight. Akash does not answer; he walks out and knocks a can out of his path with his cane, implying that he is not blind.
