After making an intense influence by killing the demons of ‘Kalyug’, the Bhatt banners' old favorite Kunal Khemu has now gone immoral way.
Directed by Vishal Mahadkar, Khemu's much-awaited solo flick ‘Blood Money’ seems to be a hopeless affair to watch.
The movie brings to mind the 1986 Mahesh Bhatt movie ‘Naam’ that established Sanjay Dutt as an actor and gave us the marvel song “Chitthi Aayi Hai”.
As per the Bhatts' old conceptions, the story talks about a middle-class boy dreaming big and finally getting entrapped into a structured white-collar crime business.
‘Blood Money’ follows the story of a small town man (Kunal Khemu), marrying his beloved (Amrita Puri) and landing up abroad in order to make life richer, better and bigger.
He attains richness in a very short period of time after getting into the business of diamond smuggling.
Proving his acting caliber in ‘Kalyug’, Kunal Khemu has been a very promising actor so far. Khemu's intense act in ‘Blood Money’ can definitely bring kudos for him. Amrita Puri is pleasant enough but does not get much scope in the movie.
Talking about the positive areas, the spotlight of ‘Blood Money’ is undoubtedly its heart-touching music. Like any other Bhatt movie, ‘Blood Money's’ music is influential and melodious.
The film's dialogues are sloppy and lack novelty. The main centre of attraction is the controversial sex scene!
All in all, ‘Blood Money’ is below average, stale and boring affair!
