A cool movie
12 November 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Blackmail is a story of...well take a wild guess.

The movie is about Kailash (Dharmendra), Asha (Rakhee), and Jeevan (Shatrugan Sinha).

Kailash and Jeevan are best friends. Kailash secretly admires Asha for a while. One day at a restaurant, he finally admits it to Jeevan. Jeevan is ecstatic at such news.

But what innocent Kailash doesn't know is that Jeevan and Asha are already quite chummy with each other, and they want to get married.

Meanwhile, Dharmendra's scientist uncle, Madan Puri, finds the formula for unlimited solar power for electricity (sorry, a little blurry on that part). Madan Puri is earning millions because of his intelligent discovery.

Soon, circumstances come, and Jeevan tells Asha that he must go and fulfill his "future" and that he values it. He leaves Asha, who is now stuck between two men she is unsure of. Should it be Jeevan or Kailash.

After a long time of thinking, Asha decides that she will marry Kailash. They get married, and they seem to have a long happy life ahead of them. But guess who shows up at the wedding? You're right, Jeevan.

And now Jeevan says that Asha is the most valuable aspect of his life, not his future. But this is all confusing! Why is he telling her now, on her suhaag raat?

Watch this attention-grabbing movie, which shows the premeditated ways of those who blackmail to get what they want.

I rate this movie a 10, because it was very nicely made, and the songs are nice. Kishore Kumar's "Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas" is an evergreen track. Lata's voice is enchanting in "Asha O Asha" and "Naina Mere" composed by the musically gifted Kalyanji Anandji. Dharmendra's cool, Shatrugan's kinda funny, and Rakhee gives a beautiful performance. It's a unique story, put together with expertise by Vijay Anand. Watch it and be entertained.
