#Blackmail had a slow start in morning shows, but gathered momentum post evening at plexes [like most metro-centric movies]... Sat and Sun biz is crucial... Will give an idea of how strong it will sustain on weekdays... Fri Rs 2.81 cr. India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) April 7, 2018
Blackmail opened to middling reviews on Friday but Irrfan Khan's performance has particularly been singled out as brilliant. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee said: "Blackmail isn't exactly a zippy thriller that rattles along at an even pace, but owing to the quality of the pivotal performance from Irrfan, luminous as ever, it is persistently riveting," and added: "However, it is Irrfan's unblinking, befuddled gaze and shifty body language that define the core of the drama in ways so imperceptible that it is impossible to second guess the moves of the character he plays."
