A Still from Blackmail movie


Blackmail has been executed very well by Delhi Belly director Abhinay Deo. The film is a little slow on some occasions but a balanced dose of humour compensated for it.


The music has been selected with a great sense and complements the story of the movie. Guru Randhawa’s hit song, Patola has increased the weight of the film music. Also, the placement of songs in the movie has been splendidly done and is entertaining. Urmila Matondkar’s performance on the item song, Bewafa Beauty is simply rocking and impressive.

To conclude the analysis, we can say that Blackmail is a well made and intelligently executed film filled with power-packed performances of all-stars. Due to its superb content and execution, BOTY has given 3.5/5 rating to the film. Let’s see what other critics are saying about the movie:

One thought on “Blackmail Movie Review: Irrfan Khan At His Best

  1. The plot of Blackmail is its hero and it manages to strike a good balance between dark and funny. Characters are bumped off, sometimes in most gory detail and strange events unfold, but the film never loses its vein of easy, black humour.
