Goofs

Akash (Ayushmann Khurrana) is not blind during the entire movie in-fact he is only blind for about a few hours when Simi (Tabu) makes him blind by removing his cornea, just after which the small boy enters the room and probably with the help of his parents takes him to see an eye specialist, after which Akash is treated and cured. This is evident because just after this scene Akash is attacked by the policeman, where it is clearly visible that Akash's iris is now black and not white. After which in the entire movie Akash wears the fake lens he has. And yes in the end Akash and Doc did kill Simi and that is how Akash benefited from this entire mess and finally landed in London. The whole rabbit story was made up by Akash so that he seems like a good decent guy in front of Sofie (Radhika Apte) See more »

Quotes

[repeated line]
Akash: A cricket ball hit my head when I was 14. The optic nerve was damaged.

Crazy Credits

During the end credits, a disclaimer shows that the transplant of human organs for commercial purpose is a crime and the film does not intend to support it. See more »

Alternate Versions

The UK theatrical release was censored; in order to obtain a 12A classification the distributor opted to make 50 seconds of cuts: removing stronger moments of violence, bloody injury detail and the use of strong language. An uncut 15 classification was available. See more »

Decade's Best : Redefines Neo-Noir
6 October 2018 | by Rish_tweetsSee all my reviews

Brilliant...This cinematic experience will not let you stay back in your seat relaxed. Writers have knitted a pitch perfect Mystery around : Murder,Money & Man who is Blind (!). Taut screenplay and black comic narrative by Raghavan, the story's audacious characters and twists, keep you riveted.Crisp editing grips you.Cinematography is something that boasts the storytelling.Piano scenes are superbly crafted and choreographed , underlined by Amit Trivedi's music and Daniel B George's background score.Couple of acts veneered with poetic touch & Tribute to Chayahar & Chitrageet is something that needs applaud. Tabu is showing her class. Ayushman delivers career best. Rest all are fab too.

Dont miss line '"What is life? It all depends on the liver" from prologue.;)
