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

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 2/5
It's a pity Blackmail doesn't capitalize on its details. On a technical level, Deo exhibits the eye of a proficient ad filmmaker...little moments don't quite add up, but they do place this film near the top of the burgeoning well-made-average-movie pile ... 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

Udita Jhunjhunwala | Live Mint: 3/5
If you like your comedy black and your characters a little dim-witted, if you thought Delhi Belly was “epic", then Blackmail will hit the spot ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Qrius: 3/5
Irrfan khan's blackmail taps something very accurate about the monsters that reside in all of us -- a part that we're happy to deny. All that the film needed, was to be a bit more brutal in the assessment of its evil lead ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 1.5/5
The rest of the pack is irritating; I am finding it difficult to pick up who was the worst--the stupid boss or the obnoxious office colleague ... Full Review

Priyanka Bhadani | The Week: 3.5/5
Delectable dark comedy. One of the strongest features of the film is Amit Trivedi’s music ... Full Review

Reshu Manglik | India TV: 2/5
Abhinav Deo’s madcap affair was different, novel but over-strenuous ... Full Review

Reuters: 3/5
Much like his protagonist, Deo gets out of tight spots with alacrity and comes out the winner ... Full Review

Rohit Bhatnagar | Asian Age: 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

Mayur Lookhar | Cinestaan: 4/5
A fresh plot, robust screenplay, and superlative performances make Abhinay Deo's Blackmail one of the finest comedies seen of late in Hindi cinema ... Full Review

Akhil Kumar | The Statesman: 4/5
The film works even with these minute flaws and keeps us hooked till the unusual ending and something which nobody would have foreseen. A sure shot must watch ... Full Review

Manisha Lakhe | Now Running: 2.5/5
Sets off a series of what ifs and what then scenes that seem super chaotic and funny, but nothing makes you really care. If Irrfan Khan weren't as talented as he is, this film would have fallen apart within fifteen minutes ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3.25/5
Blackmail is one of those eerie films that stays with you long after its gone because there is a genuine effort to make the plot a hero in this case. So plot-heavy, despite its snail pace, the film works in parts ... Full Review

Shibaji Roychoudhury | Times Now News: 3/5
Not your run-of-the-mill comedy. The film is heady, hedonistic, cocky and compelling but not without its flaws ... Full Review

Vickey Lalwani | Spotboye: 4/5
Regale Yourself With This Love, Sex & Dhokha Tale. Irrfan Khan and Kirti Kulhari are in a loveless marriage but you will fall in love with this film. Go for it, even if you are blackmailed to not see it ... Full Review
