BLOOD MONEY movie review: Mind-numbingly boring!
A predictable plot, mediocre script and sloppy direction make this film one hard slog. Simply put, Blood Money is just not worth your money
In a scene leading to the climax of Vishal Mahadkar-directed thriller Blood Money, Kunal Khemu’s character is shown running away from at least a dozen goons to save his life.

Watching this scene in the theatre you hear a collective chortle responding to the sentiment. Click here to read more
