Blackmail: The satire comedy starring Irrfan Khan and Kirti Kulhari showed a downward trend in its second weekend at the Box Office. Helmed by Abhinay Deo, Blackmail received mixed reviews from the audiences.
The critics loved the performance of ace actor Irrfan Khan, but only a few enjoyed the dark humor portrayed in the film. The business was surely affected by the release of October, which is performing quite well at the box office.
