Sriram Raghavan is gearing up for the release of AndhaDhun, a mystery thriller with Ayushmann Khurrana portraying a visually-impaired pianist who becomes the prime suspect of a murder. The film also features Radhika Apte, Tabu and Anil Dhawan in pivotal roles.

Raghavan, who debuted as a director in 2004 has helmed several critically and commercially successful edge-of-the-seat thrillers. Here is a look at some of them.

Ek Hasina Thi (2004)

Inspired by Sidney Sheldon's If Tomorrow Never Comes, the film follows Sarika (Urmila Matondkar), who falls in love with a suave and mysterious businessman Karan (Saif Ali Khan). The romance comes to an end when she is framed for his crimes. After serving her long prison sentence, she sets out to exact revenge. Raghavan also co-wrote the script along with Pooja Ladha Surti.

Raghavan's second directorial venture was a blockbuster and later remade as Unnam in Malayalam. Neil Nitin Mukesh debuted in this film alongside Rimi Sen, Dharmendra and Vinay Pathak. The crime-thriller sees Vikram, a member of a gang who pools in money to buy drugs from a corrupt police officer. One of them steals the sum and decides to run. But it all goes south when Vikram confronts his other partner Daya but accidentally kills him.
