“An out of order script, flawed direction and too many clichés make the film uninteresting. The only saving grace was the music but even that doesn't help because of its weird placement. Blood Money is a waste of money!”
Disclaimer : The box office number indicates the approximate lifetime earnings of a film in India.

We all know that Bollywood loves its over-the-top storylines that border on being implausible with a song thrown in when least required or lines being mouthed that are never used in reality; but all that madness rests on something called a story. When that itself takes the audience to be ridiculously stupid, the film crumbles like a pack of cards. Bloody money is one such film.
Kunal(Kunal Kemmu yes name change) is newly wed & has just moved to South Africa with his wife Arzoo(Amrita Puri). His transition has been from pizza delivery boy-MBA student-Hot shot Diamond company exec with a palatial mansion. On landing he realizes that he has a no-nonsense boss (Manish Chaudry) who believes in him and his younger brother(Sandeep Sikand) who is jealous of him. He charms all with a brainless diamond deal & in quick time, makes the boss realize his worth. In this rise to the top he looses himself and falls prey to the evils of power & money. But little does he know of what goes on behind the scene. After gaining trust of the boss, he finds out the dark truth behind this organization and the nexus with the underworld. What eventually happens..you dont want to know.
Thought the film is below 2 hours, it feels much longer. The climax is unbelievably moronic & one should watch out for a preposterous action scene which is followed by Kunals call to Arzoo to which she replies, Kunal mujhe yahaan se vidwaa ban kar Mumbai nahi jaana.
The film is accompanied by a jarring background score that has a RGV hangover. Its loud, irritating and unnecessary. The best part about this whole film is the music which sadly is ill-fitted into the narrative.
The performances have quite a mix from a spirited attempt by a still college boy looking Kemmu, to a squeaky voiced Amrita P to an engaging portrayal by Manish C & a shoddy job by Sandeep Sikand.
Newbie Vishal Mahadkar messes up both writing and direction. He plays on clichs which just dont work anymore and the treatment is as old school as his dialogues. Creative liberties are all good but plain simple absence of logic is unwelcomed.
The Bhatt camps have a brilliant formula that (sadly) works. Its called Sex Music Emraan Hashmi. Alas, this one doesnt adhere to it & is a complete train wreck. Run far far away from this one.
