Blackmail: Not so funny
The maker of Delhi Belly Abhinay Deo’s obsession with toilet continues. In Blackmail, his latest offering Dev (Irrfan Khan), a toilet-paper sales executive, one evening, finds his wife Reena (Kirti Kulhari)in bed with another man Ranjit (Arunoday Singh). Dev, instead of killing both of them, decides to blackmail them, which triggers a series of hilarious episodes.
The screenplay by Parveez Shaikh is very shoddy while dialogue by Pradhuman Singh Mall are unable to hold the audience’s attention. Like Delhi Belly, Blackmail is also a dark comedy, but except Irrfan none of the actors can be said to be up to the mark.
