Blood Money Movie Review

Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site: IBNLive (CNN IBN)

Filmed indifferently, and without infusing the urgency that this kind of plot demands, first-time director Vishal Mahadkar delivers a bore-a-thon of a movie, complete with archaic dialogues and stereotypes for characters. Predictable from start to finish, the movie unfolds at an excruciatingly slow pace, and throws up no surprises – not even the ‘twist’ in the end, which you will more than likely guess. Even the film’s key plot-point – the crisis of conscience that our hero goes through – is treated so matter-of-factly that you can’t help wondering if the director was as tuned-off as you are.I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for Blood Money. Watch it if you’re having trouble sleeping lately.

The protagonist and his emotions in BLOOD MONEY are very relevant and relatable. He imagines life like every other man. In fact, anyone who aspires to make his/her life superior would be able to relate to the passion of this guy. However, after an extremely absorbing initiation, after establishing the plot so well in the first hour, the film falters towards its post-interval portions. The typical middle class guy, all of a sudden, starts punching the villain’s brawny henchmen, after giving them a good chase. Despite being viciously stabbed. Unexpectedly, from a credible, plausible zone, the film deviates into a hard-to-absorb masala-ridden fare that relies on heroism and intrepidness to prove a point. A persuasive culmination, in keeping with the quintessence of the film, would’ve only enhanced the impact of the second hour.On the whole, BLOOD MONEY is old wine with a brand new label. A decent and absorbing first hour coupled with soulful music are its aces, although the mediocre, outmoded writing in the post-interval portions leave you a little miffed. At best, a fair attempt!

This one has all the toppings of a ‘Bhatt shocker’ – drama, emotion, tragedy and some s**. Once again they push the bedroom threshold – a semi-erotic, steamy scene between two women – every man’s turn-on fantasy. Debutant director, (Vishal S Mahadkar), tells the story well, though some scenes are very stretched, and tries too hard to provoke a reaction. A faster pace, more potent dialogues, not to add some more dum in Kunal’s voice, and a better background score – would have had greater impact. While this one is engaging, it’s not the ‘rock’ you’d die for.

Only this is not The Firm and its sloppily written script is incapable of constructing gravity or drama. Blood Money is inexcusably one-note and short on buildup — things just happen one after the other like a flat, muted series of badly-shot stilted music videos.You don’t have to be a diamond expert to tell a gem from a pebble. And so, unless stale stories, bad acting and bungled possibilities capture your fancy, Blood Money is much too sluggish, simplistic and boring to bother.

Blood Money’s trailer gives out the film in 2.05 minutes. And if those posters of Kunal Khemu in the pool with a bunch of babes are stimulating enough to drag you to the theatre, think twice.The lead pair salvages the film to an extent, but a limited scope of the script binds them both from making it an entertaining trip. The out of sync sound in many scenes makes Blood Moneytechnically unstable. Add to all this innumerable songs. Wait for Blood Money’s television premier. Or else, watch the trailer. Why waste 2.5 hours on something you can watch in 2.05 minutes

The narration begins on a thin note with some ultra-intruding songs which do nothing but hamper the flow of the story. In the midst of the pre-interval moments, one starts drawing comparisons with the same banner’s Jannat. Amrita like Sonal feels lonely as her husband Kunal like Emraan is engrossed in his profession. What adds to the agony is absurd climax beginning with bruised Kunal manage to escape the office with important documents with no sign of security guards in the premises. Secondly, he effortlessly manages to get in touch of Interpol despite his super influential boss acting like a watchdog.Good performances, direction, cinematography and editing are strong points. Poor script, loose screenplay and music are drawbacks.Overall, Blood Money is like an old wine in new bottle and can be easily given a miss.
