The story is about a blind man, Gautham (Raj Tarun) works as a Radio Jockey and falls in love with an eye-doctor Netra (Hebah Patel). She helps him get his vision with a surgery. However, the man who's eyes were offered for Gautham turns into a ghost and haunts him. As per the directions of the ghost, Gautham keeps killing people one after the other. What is the reason behind the killings and as to how Gautham saves himself from the ghost ordeal forms the rest of the movie.
When it comes to the comedy elements, Raj Tarun has delivered his best but the other sequences, he doesn't come across as convincing. Particularly in the fight and revenge scenes, the actor falls short and looks uncomfortable in the grave situations.
Hebah Patel is glamorous in her role but there is nothing new from her in terms of performance. It looks similar to her previous performances and the actress has nothing substantial to offer in the movie.
In terms of the antagonist, Raja Ravindra doesn't do much and Rajendra Prasad is simply wasted in the movie. The supporting cast including Shayaji Shinde, Satya & Sudarshan and Ashish Vidyarthi do a decent job.
The first half of the movie is a plus and the comedy aspects work well for the story to move forward. However, the film falters in terms of casting and screenplay. With an established writer Veligonda Srinivas turning into a director, the story is expected to be engaging but Andhhagadu fails to entertain the viewers.
The love track begins well but with the plot drift, the story takes a drastic turn changing the entire setup of the movie.
The plot is outdated and the casting of Raj Tarun & Raja Ravindra doesn't look convincing. Coming to the music, Sekhar Chandra's compositions are ordinary with only 'Debbaku Poye Poye' track standing out. The cinematography and the production values are decent.
