| Kunal Khemu's finest work !
Every great gangster movie has under-currents of human drama. Don't expect an emotional story of guilt, retribution and despair from "Blood Money". This is a tale of ferocious greed, corruption, and power.

Anybody complaining about the "cheesiness" of this film is missing the point. The superficial characters, cheesy music, and dated fashions further fuel the criticism of this life of diabolical excess. Nothing in the lives of these characters really matter, not on any human level at least. In fact the film practically borderlines satire, ironic considering all the gangster rappers that were positively inspired by the lifestyle of Kunal Kadam.

This isn't Mukesh Bhatt's strongest directorial effort, it is occasionally excellent and well-handled (particularly the memorable finale), but frequently sinks to sloppy and misled. Thankfully, it is supported by a very strong script by Upendra Sidhye. The themes are consistent, with the focus primarily on the life of Kunal Kadam, and the evolution of his character as he is consumed by greed and power. The dialogue is also excellent, see-sawing comfortably between humour and drama. There are many stand-out lines, which have since wormed their way into popular culture in one form or another.

Powerful, occasionally humorous, sometimes shocking, and continually controversial.Blood Money is totally worth watching. An essential and accessible gangster flick, and a pop-culture landmark.

The story is very detailed and realistic. This film tells a story of how a person who rises to power by wealth can easily be destroyed by the same exact stuff that made them powerful. Also in the middle, he or she become a completely different person and they lose their friends and family.

Overall : 8/10
