Review: Blackmail: An entertaining roller-coaster ride!!! ***½

1668th BLOG POST -->>

When you go out to watch movies of few actors, you know that you will at least get to watch an average movie if not a very good attempt. Irrfan Khan is one such actor. I remember seeing the trailer of Blackmail and was fully aware that this movie is going to be one roller-coaster ride in its own skin. Now that I have watched the movie, I can say that the movie is amazing and is certainly something that keeps you glued to the screen to know the next move of the protagonist and others supporting his character. In spite of knowing the certain wrong things that he has been doing to take revenge from his wife, you still pray when you find police around him and want police to leave the screen frame as soon as possible. That’s the amazement Backmail brings with itself.

Blackmail is story of a man who finds his wife cheating with him by sleeping with another man in his absence. He does not have guts to confront her so he takes the decision of blackmailing her boyfriend. And this is how the chain reaction of Blackmail begins. But the screenplay takes the first half to begin this game until which the pace is very slow and the movie looks average. It is only in the second half that Blackmail starts proving its mettle and uniqueness. The poker face that Irrfan keeps throughout the movie and keeps on playing his tactics is what makes this movie funny. The dark comedy implemented by Abhinav Deo is another X-factor for which Blackmail will always be listed in the Top 10 movies in the genre. The climax is also very well handled and gives a good ending to the story of a broken husband.

Talking about the performances, I have already spoken a lot about Irrfan above so no need to talk about his excellence anymore. Arunodaya Singh has given the best performance of his life and he also makes you laugh like a mad in many of the scenes. His scenes with Divya Dutta are amazing. Kirti Kulhari is also fine in her performance. Rest of the supporting roles are also good in their respective parts. The background music and scores also plays a big part in making the whole blackmailing process look more cool and classy. Overall, a very good movie and I give it 3.5* out of 5.

Thanks.
