‘Maestro’ Is A Faithful Remake Of ‘Andhadhun’

Bankrolled by Sudhakar Reddy and Nikitha Reddy under Sresht Movies banner, ‘Maestro’ features Nithiin, Tamannaah and Nabha Natesh in lead roles. They are supported by Jisshu Sengupta, Naresh, Sreemukh, Ananya, Harsha Vardhan, Racha Ravi, Mangli and Srinivasa Reddy. The movie is directed by Merlapeka Gandhi, who has earlier directed several superhit movies such as ‘Venkatadri Express’, ‘Express Raja’, ‘Krishnarjuna Yuddham’ and the recently-released OTT film ‘Ek Mini Katha’. ‘Maestro’ is a remake of the Hindi movie ‘Andhadhun’, written and directed by Sriram Raghavan. While Nithiin plays the role of Ayushmann Khurrana, Tamannah essays the role played by Tabu. Nabha Natesh plays the character of Radhika Apte in the original. Due to the corona pandemic, the makers have decided to skip a theatrical release and stream it on Disney + Hotstar from Friday, September 17. The music and background score are composed by Mahati Swara Sagar and cinematography is handled by J. Yuvaraj. The editing is done by S. R. Shekhar.

A spell-binding plot

In Goa, Arun (Nithiin) is a gifted pianist. He gives a performance in a hotel at which he pretends to be blind. Mohan (Naresh), a former movie star, invites him to perform a private concert at their home one day. On their wedding anniversary, Mohan wishes to surprise his wife Simran (Tamannaah). When Arun walks into their apartment, he sees Mohan lying in a pool of blood, with Simran’s lover (Jisshu Sengupta) attempting to clean up the body. Arun sees the murder but remains silent because he is pretending to be blind. He goes to the police station as soon as he gets out of the apartment to report the murder. He discovers that the inspector is none other than Simran’s lover, much to his surprise. The plot then takes a number of unexpected turns.

The cast give it their best

Nithiin immerses himself in his role and should be commended for staying true to the character’s essence. Tamannaah has never had a negative part in her professional life, and here she makes a sincere effort.

Merlapaka Gandhi has faithfully followed the original. Barring a few minor changes, he is able to retain the soul of ‘Andhadhun’.
