Blackmail: Five reasons to watch Irrfan Khan’s quirky comedy

1. Career best turn from @arunodaysingh7 ,usual brilliance from @IamKirtiKulhari @divyadutta25, a stunning score makes #blackmail a winner. Here is what Bollywood celebrities have said about the Irrfan Khan starrer:

#Blackमेल is twisted and terrific! Celebrity Review
Blackmail director Abhinay Deo and filmmaker Sudhir Mishra clicked at the special screening of Blackmail. Also, with fewer dialogues, you will get to witness Irrfan emoting more through his expressions. “BLACKMAIL” .. .. 4. The crazy turn of events in the trailer has left all excited to know what happens to Irrfan’s character in the end, will he succeed in his plan or will have to pay a price for his actions. Movies made on the subject of infidelity in the Hindi film industry until now has more or less the same treatment. Congrats @AbhinayDeo on your wicked direction!! Now with Blackmail, where he plays a victim of infidelity, we expect nothing less of the actor. Abhinay’s execution of Delly Belly made the film stand out from the rest of Bollywood in the genre of comedy. But nothing of the sorts happen in Blackmail. Director Abhinay Deo has films like Delly Belly, a dark comedy and Force 2, a thriller, to his credit and he has also directed Anil Kapoor’s TV series 24 which was received well by the Indian television audience. He is an actor who, in his almost three-decades-long career, has portrayed every character with panache and has added a realistic touch to his every role whether be it of Yogi in Qarib Qarib Singlle, Raj in Hindi Medium or Rana Chaudhary in Piku. It is a story of a husband Dev (Irrfan) who reaches home from the office to find his wife of seven years Reena (Kirti Kulhari) in bed with Arunodoy Singh’s character. — Alankrita (@alankrita601) April 2, 2018

Dev had me. Whenever the 51-year-old actor has made it to the silver screen, the instances of movie buffs returning disappointed have been minimal. The director has once again attempted to make a dark comedy with Blackmail, which is a quirky take on adultery. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App

Watch the trailer of Blackmail 

Blackmail hits screens on April 6. Really enjoyed your ESCAPADE! Irrfan Khan
Irrfan Khan plays the role of a victim of infidelity in Abhinay Deo’s film Blackmail. It goes like the husband or the wife finds out about his/her spouse cheating on them, they go mad in anger and in anger either resort to violent measures like killing one’s partner or choose to divorce their partner. The actor has been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour. The Abhinay Deo directorial has received rave reviews from the film fraternity at the special screening of Blackmail. Instead of getting violent, Dev decides to take revenge by blackmailing his wife’s boyfriend. Emotionally entangled and evil with even flourish! @priyagupta999

T 2760 – Saw a delightful film today .. a brilliant screenplay, unique story, exemplary performances and great presentation and editing .. The trailer of the film has already established how Irrfan will ace this role as well. Grt job @priyagupta999 @TSeries @AbhinayDeo n such joy to see school bud Apu as producer. 3. But his blackmailing goes wrong and he is the one being blackmailed. 2. Superlative work by the entire team! Also, the fans of Irrfan who are taken aback after knowing about his health condition want to see their favourite star back in action. With Blackmail too, they are expected to make the film a memorable one with their stellar performance. Here are a few reasons which make Blackmail worth a watch this weekend. In the film, the audience will get to see him slipping into a comic character with a poker face. Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Rajkumar Hirani, Amol Gupte, Nishikant Kamat, Ashutosh Gowarikar, Tanuja Chandra, Meghna Gulzar, Ravi Udyawar, Rensil D’Silva, Sudhir Mishra and others were blown over by the script and the performance of the actors in the dark comedy. — Soumik Sen (@bangdu) April 1, 2018

Had so much fun watching #blackmail. Related News

Though the director and producer of the film Bhushan Kumar offered to postpone the release, it was Irrfan who was keen on the timely release of Blackmail as it is one of his favourite movies. The film has left cinephiles excited ever since the teaser of it was released by the makers which had National Award-winning actor Irrfan running bare-chested on the streets. All of them have proved their acting mettle earlier and have eclipsed the lead of the films they have starred in. He had control over what his characters did in the film and after seeing the trailer of the madcap comedy Blackmail, it seems Deo will have another hit in his kitty. Apart from Irrfan Khan and Kriti Kulhari, the film has actors like Divya Dutta, Arunoday Singh, Omi Vaidya, Anuja Sathe, Pradhuman Singh Mall and Gajraj Rao. 5. Unguessable till the last turn. @irrfank #Blackमेल
