Sweta Kaushal | Hindustan Times: 3/5
Irrfan Khan, Divya Dutta’s black comedy is refreshing. Blackmail movie review: Fun filled and realistic story-telling made interesting with engaging and hilarious performances ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 4/5
The plot of Blackmail is its hero and it manages to strike a good balance between dark and funny. Characters are bumped off, sometimes in most gory detail and strange events unfold, but the film never loses its vein of easy, black humour. This is one of the most wickedly funny films that we’ve seen in a long time ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
The Irrfan Khan starrer begins promisingly but descends pretty quickly into flatness and sluggishness, a classic problem of not knowing quite how to play out a perky idea ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 3/5
Irrfan Khan Rescues The Film From Becoming a Complete Slog. It’s the film’s unique brand of humor – some of it pitch black and Coen-esque – that makes Blackmail worth your time, despite its shortcomings ... Full Review

Raja Sen | NDTV: 1.5/5
Irrfan is incapable of giving a bad performance but Abhinay Deo's farce is too tacky and poorly-conceived to do Khan justice ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh | Bollywood Hungama: 4/5
BLACKMAIL is quite an unconventional entertainer and a good black comedy. It may not have a pan India appeal but the target multiplex audience are sure to enjoy this flick ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 4/5
Irrfan Khan Moulds This Unbroken & Enchanting Piece Of Art. Along with Irrfan Khan's flawless performance every other actor has delivered magic with their presence ... Full Review

Prasanna D Zore | Rediff: 3.5/5
Abhinay Deo's film never runs short of bite and sting. Blackmail's settings are grim, dark, comic and capricious, but one misses the directorial chutzpah that Deo showcased in his 2011 film Delhi Belly ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2/5
Irrfan and Co drive this engaging but flawed tragi-comedy of errors ... Full Review

Meena Iyer | DNAIndia: 4/5
Irrfan Khan's film is witty and wicked. Just go for it. You will be grinning for the most part ... Full Review

Suhani Singh | India Today: 2/5
Irrfan as wronged husband is a delight to behold, the film not so much. Plot contrivance comes in as all characters indulge in blackmailing far too easily and with little repercussions ... Full Review

Rohit Bhatnagar | Deccan Chronicle: 1.5/5
A chaotic yawn fest. Considering the trailer that was funny enough to tickle your funny bone, the movie is not even near to it ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 2/5
While Blackmail Is Predominantly A Black-Comedy, It Is, Given The Nature Of The Story Itself, Very Much Also A Suspense Thriller ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3/5
Summing up, watch this adult comedy for the performances of its ensemble cast and some true ribald scenes ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 2.5/5
Abhinay Deo’s film starring Irrfan Khan is about controlled chaos but to pull that off, you need much sharper writing and a faster pace ... Full Review

Jansatta: 4/5
ब्लैकमेल लीक से हटकर एक एंटरटेन करने वाली फिल्म है। फिल्म को लेकर फिल्म समीक्षक उम्मीद जता रहे हैं कि फिल्म बॉक्स ऑफिस पर अच्छी कमाई कर सकती है। ... Full Review

IANS | Gulf News: 4/5
Irrfan Khan satire is a riot. Comedy celebrates the sheer lunacy of the marital equation when pushed against betrayal ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 3.5/5
Abhinay Deo stays true to his words and delivers a film that's high on quirky quotient and almost ticks off most of the check-boxes barring a few. If you are looking out for some 'hatke' black comedy then Blackmail is your comfort food ... Full Review

Financial Express: 2/5
Irrfan Khan shines in Abhinay Deo’s slow-paced film. However, except for a few moments, most twists in the plot of the film are unexpected and keep up with the mood of suspense even as the characters tickle our funny bone with their situational comedy ... Full Review

Rag Mayur | Chitramala: 3/5
The movie, however might cater to only those who have a thing for dark comedies. Some moments are very raw and some disgraceful scenes are projected as casual. All in all, a watchable dark comedy ... Full Review

Sneha May Francis | Masala: 2.5/5
Despite the magnificent build-up in the first half, the second quickly begins to disintegrate, the twists and turns begin to confuse and the jokes get repetitive. It literally "suc...s" out the fun ... Full Review
