First of all, I think labeling this movie as an action/thriller is a definite misnomer. It is more of a drama. However, I think it's pointless to think too hard trying to categorize films only to strictly expect things typical of a film belonging to that genre. I mean come on, this is Bollywood. Blackmail has it all--action, drama, romance, the works. I thought there were some good action sequences, particularly the carnival scene. Priyanka Chopra and Diya Mirza don't have much of a role and are simply there to add a couple of songs. The essence of this movie is the father-son relationship. Suniel Shetty's adopted son means everything in the world to him after losing his real son. Ajay Devgan's search for his son leads him to a shocking yet heartwarming realization. The father-son relationship has been portrayed absolutely beautifully in this film. The climax is a real tearjerker. All actors and actresses have given extraordinary performances.
