Amateurish work
4 December 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Despite a talented star cast, Blackmail looks so amateurish...I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't do so well.

Ace car racer and criminal Shekhar seeks revenge on cop Abhay Singh for getting him arrested and imprisoned even to the extent of costing Shekhar the life of his wife and child, 7 years after his release. But Shekhar is in for surprises and Abhay Singh has to figure out how to handle the ex conman who is behind him now. The hunter has become the hunted.

The film has amateurish conceptualisation, amateurish dialogue work, Weak acting, Poor editing and is overdramatic. There is unbelievable stuff, like surviving more than 24 hrs after being hit in the back by a bullet.

It does get thrilling at times, and there are a few melodious songs , best actor is probably Sunil shetty. Ajay Devgn is definitely a talented actor but in this film his talents are not used well.

Couldn't have worked.
