Watch Blackmail full movie online free – Saw this in a theatre. Was highly anticipating it because i loved the director’s earlier effort Delhi Belly which was outrageously funny. Of course the other reason is Irrfan Khan. The film follows the life of Dev (Irrfan) and his sometimes odd, sexual preferences. The missing photographs scenes were hilarious. The face cover scenes were hilarious too. Dev who is most attracted to his wife when she’s sleeping, has a habit of peeping through a hole into his own bedroom. One night Dev comes early as advised by his colleague, finds his wife sleeping with another man. Surprisingly, given this dark subject matter, hilarity does in fact ensues. The film is filled with wacky complications, it takes a turn into darker territory with blackmailing, murder, conspiracyn accidents. One of the best part is that ther r no bloody songs except for one item song which was necessary for the colleague getting drunk n opening his mouth. There is some cleverly intelligent comedy here, but thats what I come to expect from Irrfan n Abhinay Deo. This film is really Irrfan’s. He imbues his character with a sweetness that makes him more human and we as audiences wants him to win in his Pac-man game as well as in his revenge.

Blackmail review by sagarshares7854 – Interesting premise, undermined by pacing issues
This movie offers a dark,unique look into a regular man’s life.Though unrealistic in places and maybe too dark for some,the movie rewards the patient viewer.Yes it gets repetitive at times and some subplots are unnecessary(especially since one of them takes a lot of screen time) However,there is a lot to appreciate too.Right from some smart exposition to smart gags to the claustrophobic feel of the narrow walls these characters abide in.Arunoday Singh and the ever reliable Irrfan Khan shine in their roles.There are also little tit-bits here and there,which the attentive viewer would enjoy.
Bollywood movies generally shy away from showing the dark side of humans.So I always welcome a dark tale.Almost every character is morally corrupt here and ready to compromise relationships for financial gains.This is where the film could’ve done better.If all the central characters were more chalked out,the movie would’ve been something else! Still it’s a good watch.I liked it.
Blackmail review by Tejas Nair – Capsule Review: Blackmail
Director Abhinay Deo can safely call himself the king of black comedies as Blackmail by all means surpasses his previous best, Delhi Belly (2011). Irrfan, the king of the neighbouring kingdom – subtle acting – plays Dev, a cuckold to his wife (Kirti Kulhari) and leads the show. How an ordinary office-going man with shades of grey turns into a hostile creature with inflated vile human characteristics is what is the basic setting, and why Blackmail works compared to its past contemporaries is because Dev is not the only monster here. Every single character in the film is a vile creature with sinister intentions. From Dev’s wife to his colleagues to the adulterer (Arunoday Singh) – everyone is a culprit in this drama that is written with full conviction and imagination. Writer Parveez Sheikh, known for Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) and Queen (2013), weaves a story that is so well-connected and polished, it is both delightful and funny to see the events unfold. Irrfan is at his usual best who acts like he his living the character; Singh, Divya Dutta, and Omi Vaidya are other members of the cast who support Deo in creating a near modern masterpiece in storytelling. With narrative frequently taking potshots at the human nature and also sampling current affairs and trends, there is never a dull moment that will bore a discerning viewer. There is enough going on in this drama that you will want to pay close attention as there is brilliance even in the niceties. Supported by a hard-pumping soundtrack, an unnecessary Urmila Matondkar cameo, and one of the best screenplays I have seen for a Bollywood film in 2018 so far, Blackmail is like that student who gets 80+ on all the subjects. How a noxious affair leads to another nasty thought to several more beastly events is what Blackmail situates itself in, and at the end reveals the hard truth about life that it is not people who actually do the crime that always suffer for it. It’s a sincere and quirky take on life and gets full points for the efforts. The ambiguous climax makes it much more of a new wave, unmissable film. Go watch it! TN.

Blackmail review by Abhay Bhatt – An excellent film with awesome script/screenplay and an abrupt ending.
This is a film with outstanding writing/screenplay – PERIOD! There are many kinds of films…some are acting centric, some are direction centric and some are visual centric, this is a writing centric film, which means it’s screenplay, is outstanding compared to it’s other aspects, and comes out as it’s primary selling point and attraction.
It’s been some time since the era of screenplay centric films in Bollywood began. I think, now it is flourishing.
Humor is good, subtle, novel, and is well written into the script. Some new refreshing and skilled cast is also a plus point.
I have only one major complaint with the movie and that is it’s abrupt ending. The ending is unexpected and surprising in the sense that at that point it seems that the film will go on for atleast 15-20 minutes more. There is an improper closure, and viewers would have to use their imagination a bit to conclude things; I would have preferred a more proper closure to the investigation. But taking this aspect of the ending out, the ending seems well written with a good touch of irony.
Blackmail review by bigmoviebuff-98923 – Good actors can deliver good comedy!
What would you do if you return home one day to find your wife in bed with her lover? Well as the title of this Abhinay Deo directed quirky comedy suggests, the husband(Dev) decides to blackmail him. He purchases a new mobile and sim and texts him demanding I lakh rupees otherwise he would expose the affair. Now the lover(Ranjit) himself is in an unhappy marriage and is forced to cajole his bossy wife(Dolly) to lend him the money under the pretext of starting his own canine import export business. This is how the first blackmail takes place. Through the course of the film there are several blackmails which occur with Dev being the center of all of them. He is either the one who is demanding the money or the one who ends up paying it. The premise is unique and Abhinay smartly exploits it to give the audience several laughs. The side plot involving Dev’s obsession with pictures of other men’s wives is one that’s extremely hilarious and the way Irrfan Khan goes about carrying about this obsession just adds on to the humour quotient. The script is easy flowing and the characterization is excellently done. Every character has a unique personality which gives them depth and relatability. There is never the sense of something being out of place or someone behaving in an over the top manner. This shows quality actors can pull off good comedic roles without stepping into slapstick territory. The first half is slow but the second half more than makes up for it with it’s faster pace and unpredictability. If you’re tired of watching Sajid Khan inspired comedies loaded with forced humour and overacting watch this movie to restore your faith in the comedy genre.
Blackmail review by Maulin Parmar – Irrfan rocks! Amit Trivedi’s good music. Bit slow. Reccomandable.
Film has Irrfan in the lead and that is fine enough for somebody to decide whether he is going to watch or not! Director Abhinay Deo is back in his favorite genre – Dark Comedy.
Well, comedy is something which one enjoys loudly while seeing it. One laughs out loud or cheers mainly in comic scenes. But here, not a single person in the hall was laughing. Actually, I was the only one who laughed at some points in the film. So, I would not term this film a Dark Comedy, but a Dark Humour.
Film is about Dev (Irrfan) who finds out one night that his wife (Kirti) is cheating on him. Because of EMIs and other interests, he decides to blackmail his wife- Reena’s lover for some money. The lover boy (Arunoday Singh) asks for money to his wife Dolly (Divya Dutta). But her parents want the amount back from him. So, Lover Boy also blackmails his lover a.k.a. Dev’s wife. Eventually, Dev is giving money to his wife which later he collects from that Lover boy. Meanwhile, colleagues of Dev also come in the picture to make some money. The chain becomes extremely complicated. For unlocking it, watch out this one.
Irrfan is superb. The scene of him running from his house after getting shocked to see his wife with another man is fantastic. Kirti is suitable and good. Arunoday delivers a good performance. Divya Dutta is as usual classy. Omi Vaidya is nice, too. Anuja Sathe plays an important role along with Pradhuman Singh and Gajraj Rao.
After Irrfan, the major plus point of this film is its music and songs. Amit Trivedi has given superb songs. First time I enjoyed all the rap songs in a film. Each and every song is perfect according to the story line. Lyrics has been written accordingly as well. ‘Bewafa Beauty Pyaar Mein Cheating Kar Gayi!’ Urmila Matondkar is there too in this item song. ‘Nindaraan Diyaan’ & ‘Sataasat’ are perfect. Patola and Happy Happy are not in the film, but they’re also good.
Abhinay Deo is a good director. Each scene has its own element. First song of the film where Irrfan is all alone in the office and goes to bathroom says it all. The detailing of each posters and usage of props are up to the mark.
Though, this film is not as good as Delhi Belly. It is very slow. If you don’t like to see new concepts in films, you will never gonna complete this film. Background score is superb. But still, we feel too much length of many scenes. Good editing or a good screenplay could have put this film in the league of classics. As of now, if you have patience, than only you will love it. Also, post interval part is not that slow as the pre-interval part. The game is happening till the last frame. So if you are giving it a chance, wait for the end. You will surely feel that- ‘The time spent well’!
On the whole, pray for Irrfan’s speedy recovery. Take your time along with you to enjoy his latest dark humour- Blackmail!
Blackmail review by Siddhartha Khanooja – Mind-blowing.
This was unexpected. I went in the hall with low expectations, having literally no idea of what the film was going to be about. I had no idea of what I was in for. Boy, did I enjoy every bit of the roller-coaster ride! On the surface, it looks to be simple – a man finds his wife is cheating on him, he plans to blackmail on his wife’s boyfriend to pay off his bills. That’s where it gets complicated. What follows is an impressive accounts lesson, money changing hands as frequently as nymphomaniacs changing clothes, and shades of grey revealed in every character. Friendship, love, jobs, loyalty – everything bows their head to the almighty rupee (or dollar, depending on where you are from). The music is impressive. The soundtrack is among Amit Trivedi’s top five, easily. The acting is, for lack of a better word, amazing. Irrfan Khan steals the show. Smaller actors could have easily collapsed under the weight that the film demanded from the lead role, but boy, he does not disappoint. Other actors (Arunoday Singh, Kirti Kulhari, Divya Dutta, Omi Vaidya, et al.) also make handle their roles with grace, but your eyes will never stray from Irrfan. One word of caution, though – this is full of dark humor, not dark comedy – don’t go into the film expecting laughs and giggles.
Blackmail review by Shekhar Tomar – An impressive situational comedy.
7 years after the release of one of the best situational comedies, Abhinay Deo brings us another comedy thriller, ‘Blackmail’. Considering how tough this genre of cinema is this is an excellent film. Just like ‘Delhi Belly’, ‘Blackmail’ takes its time to build the pace.
Dev (Irrfan Khan) is living in a burdened marriage leading to a sad monotonous routine. One day he catches his wife Reema (Kirti Kulhari) in bed with her lover Ranjit Arora (Arunoday Singh) who is married to a rich brat Dolly Verma (Divya Dutta). With a bunch of loans and EMIs to pay he hatches a plan to blackmail Ranjit for a sum of Rupees 1 lakh. But what happens next turns his whole plan upside down thus starting a chain to events changing his life forever.
Abhinay had his task cut out with a totally unknown cast to support Irrfan and barring Arunoday everyone has done a firm job. Every character is given their personal screen-time thus reducing the dependency on Irrfan who is as always fantastic. Some of the scenes are memorable and might be remembered for years. But the movie lacks in a department where most situational comedies score: dialogues. The dialogues are very simple and thus the frequent punches are missing.
One of my personal favorites Gajraj Rao makes a refreshing appearance on the big screen as Chawla. Pradhuman Singh as Anand Tripathi is also a charm but Kirti’s character is a bit of a fail. What makes ‘Blackmail’ even more intriguing is that you are not able to judge how to the story would unfold even till the last scene. A formidable follow up to ‘Delhi Belly’.
Blackmail review by Ketan Gupta – Make sure you watch it – Filled with electrifying comic scenes!!!
Situational comedy is fun to watch since you might never know what will come next and the surprise element will make you laugh-a-loud. Andaz Apna Apna, Chachi 420, Padosan, Angoor, Choti Si Baat, Gol Maal (1979) , Chashme Badoor, Jaani Bhi Do Yaaron, Chameli Ki Shaadi, Pushpak or even Hera Phera were some of the films that left a lasting impression in your mind with hilarious diaologues and comic act. Come forward to 2018 and we have a similar genre of comedy in form of Blackmail. Will it be as crazy as Delhi Belly ? Let us find out …
Black Mail tells the story of a middle-class office going guy, Dev Kaushal (Irrfan Khan), who wants to re-ignite the sour relationship with his wife (Kirti Kulhari). After being suggested by his peer at work, he decides to surprise his wife one night when he reaches home early than his usual time. To his dismay, he finds his wife having affair with her ex-boyfriend (Arunoday Singh). Dev does not get angry at the situation but chalks out a plan so that even he can benefit from it.
Abhinay Deo and Pervez Shaikh (writer) goes a step ahead and does not limit the movie by just husband blackmailing his wife. They create situations where there is a series of blackmailers involved and everyone wants to grab a piece of cake. Now the best part of watching Blackmail is its earnest comic scenes and timings. Secnes like Dev’s boss (brilliant played by 3 idiots’s Chatur a.ka. Omi Vaidya) trying to sell toilet papers, Arundhoya Singh’s father-in-law threatening to take back his money at the dinner table, Dev stealing the photos of wives from his office colleague and even from his boss for pleasure every night when nobody is at office. The most hilarious scene was when he could not find anything, he took the poster of a female model to the rest room. Each and every character is brilliantly defined and it is fun to watch them play their part. While the first half has its share of moments, second half gets more meatier when more characters gets involved and it becomes a series of blackmailing. The film might get repetitive and editing could have helped making the film much more smarter than it is. Also, background score is adequate and goes well with the scenes but none of the songs will be remembered once you leave the theater. Hats off to the screenplay and dialogues who keeps you glued to the screen. Nothing much can be said about the Art Direction and Cinematography while length of the film could be trimmed by few minutes. The item song featuring Urmilla Matondkar was disappointing.
Irrfan Khan is epitome of talent. The brilliant actor, who explored his career with serious roles like Maqbool, Haasil, Paan Singh Tomar or Talwar is giving comedy films a new meaning with his quirky and witty dialogues. With Piku, Hindi Medium, Qarib Qarib Singlle and now Blackmail, Irrfan Khan steals the show with his perfect expression of taking situation-as-it-comes and bringing out humor in it. The other actor who did well was Arunoday Singh. He was really good in his comic timings. There is a scene where he secretly meets Kirti Kulhari in a theater and instead of focusing on the situation, he checks out a girl sitting in the front row who he remembered was there with some other guy previously.
Overall, Blackmail is one hell of a ride filled with twist and turns that will surely be enjoyed.
